Word Of Mouth

So at the moment I'm working on a project where we wrote the brief ourselves. This is first time since I've been at university where they've allowed this and I've loved it so far. I decided to take the advantage of having a project so vastly broad. I decided to start drawing humans and animals mouths in different variations and expressions and then playing around with the drawings on photoshop. Here's some of the stuff I've come up with on photoshop. Ive had this material printed on fabric using digital print. It looks totally 'rad', so once the project is over I'm going to make them into the actual cushions, they'll be about 60cm square.

I've also made a patchwork piece which I handstitched, transfer printed on top of and then made further stitching over the top. This piece feels quite special to me as the fabrics I used in the patchwork are old scraps of materials I've collected over time, for example a couple are from old dolls dress' I had as a youngster.

I Think I Have A Skeleton Obsession

Recently I came across Michael Paulus, now this guy is a genius. I'm mega jealous of the ideas he comes up with. I've been mostly looking at his 'Character Study with Skeletal Systems', this is a study where he's taken 25 different classic cartoon characters and given them a bone structure , I absolutely love the retro feel mixed with the slightly creepy skeleton observations.
This really is such a great idea.

You can buy these from and at $60 a pop it's really not that bad a price for something so beautiful, I'm putting the Charlie Brown skeleton on my birthday list.
