Return of the Editorial Work

'The age of reason' is an article by Julie Burchill who comments on the change of progress between boys and girls at school, that girls are over taking boys educationally and boys are taking a back seat. She also comments on the differences between men and women and how women are progressing in the work place and men seem to be the ones buying the aprons now.

'Puss in Books' is an article that discusses the origin of the Cheshire cat in Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. I have played around here by trying to combine all the different theories- A Cheshire pub-sign painter whose lions looked more like cheerful moggies. Cheshire cheese makers used to mould one end of the cheese into the shape of a grinning cat. And Cheshire was a county Palatine (under royal rule) which apparently cats find amusing.

'Seven ways to boost your brainpower' this article focuses on certain things studies have shown to boost your brain power - Strawberries, juggling, broccoli, iron, not skipping breakfast, exercising and a bit of what you fancy.

Old Uni Work

Found some pictures I took of my work in the first year of fine art! It's crazy when I look at what my work used to be like! It's change so much in the past 2 years, I forget how dark my work was. I still love the prints I did though they were so much fun! Glad I chose to go down the illustration route eventually.

Thought I'd share with you a photo of my hamster! She/he ( still not sure after a year!) is pretty cool, still wish I had a cat though!
