So this week has been totally epic, sorry for a lack of lapin related updates. This week I was doing a rabbit workshops using the work of Shepard Fairey OBEY as an example for the kids. Also this week has included the usual lovliness of friends, food, bikes and loves.
Sometimes being Mum to 2 kids, one disabled, work, trying to lose weight (awful body problems, hangover from being anoraxic) and other bull shit gets too much. Then my body has an ‘episode’ and I get excruciating stomach pains, panic, dizziness and other awful things. So today I am going to bed, watching dvds, eating nice food and resting.
Here are some photos I took yesterday of where I work…
So yesterday was pretty much everyones last day at the gallery before the Christmas holidays. Amy put together an amazing pass the parcel with ‘crap from our houses’ and Ollie and I smuggled in a huge box of profiteroles to the Customs House. As usual the night ended in The Dog and as I tottered back home in my high heels I saw a pair of white trainers hanging over a phone line on Devonshire Ave, topped it off for me!

A few good friends who work in a gallery, one day/night, good cheer, dancing with beautiful people, backs of toilet doors, a toy hamster found in a club and my naked back…
As the poster says, its a Tuesday, we might be there we might not, but probably. If you freelance, at Uni or just bored of sitting in your bedroom drawing on illustrator come and do it at Aspex! Next week I will be there drawing my learning journey, come say Hi! This is not an ‘official’ aspex activity its just two friends who like making on Tuesday and planning projects and thought the gallery cafe would be an awesome place for you to join us.
Wow this is pretty exciting I am going to have my work in an exhibition at Aspex Gallery for the first time ever! Alongside some really cool artist like Jodie Silsby, Ashley John and Adam Hayes (previously featured on BWDIW). So if your free next Thursday 4th November come down to Aspex about 6.30 to see the new work and we also have an after hours event feautirng live performance. Even I will be playing guitar and singing eek.
