Hey guys! Sorry I’ve not updated this in a while, I’ve just had so much work to do! On Monday and Tuesday I had two 5 hour art exams in which I had to produce a final piece that all links to my coursework. It was quite weird, I had to do the ten hours in complete silence, but it all paid off in the end! I tried to base my final piece on Andy Warhol, Robert Delaunay, Damian Hirst, Sandhi Schimmel and Piet Mondrian. All together I think I did a pretty good job!

Here’s a picture of it!

The first square says ‘’ アビ‘’ Which is Japanese, but the picture kinda makes it look like PE haha. The idea of it is to show all of my interests on the outside that make up me – which is the square in the middle.

I put my Factory Floor pictures in for my coursework and today my teacher said that either one of them could have been my final piece! So I think my art is quite good at the moment, I just hope the examiner likes it!

Also listen to this! It’s kinda my favourite song at the moment….

Coward and crew

Hey guys! Quick quick update! Joseph Coward has recently got himself a new backing band. It consists of Tim Garratt on bass, Chris Sellers on keys, Noel Andersonon and Sam Davies on guitar and Samir Eskanda on drums. They’re all currently working really hard in the studio on some of Joseph’s songs, and will be supporting the Citizens at The Shacklewell Arms this Friday! Sadly I can’t make it as there are no bus routes that run from here to London! But if you’re free that night then I really do think you should pop on by and support these lovely chaps! Apparently the entry is free, so there really is nothing stopping you!

Check out Joseph’s blog if you want to see the first ‘demo’ of this awesome sextet! And the Facebook page '‘Beach Creep with Citizens and Joseph Coward live’’. They sound really ace and I can’t wait for them to release some new sounds!

Factory Floor goodie bag?

If you remember, at Christmas I drew a picture of my legend Nik Void. I kinda plucked up the courage to send a picture of it to her and got a response straight away saying how much she liked it and asking me if I could draw the other band members, Dom and Gabe. I lived up to the request and sent them to her just recently. She seemed so grateful of them and it is amazing that she has even commented on my work! But not only did she compliment them, she also said that she would send me a Factory Floor T-Shirt.

The packet arrived today and when I opened it there was tons of Factory Floor merch in there, which is so awesome! Happy happy!!

Thanks so much Nik!! :D

The dark I see

Okay, so I thought I’d catch up a little bit on the whole blogging thing. Not much has happened here if I’m honest with you! I’ve been soo freaked out about my art work that all of my time is dedicated to that. We only have two weeks left to produce a decent portfolio and have some idea on what to draw for our final exam, so everything at the moment is cram cram cram!

Luckily I have a few pieces already that will fit perfectly for the exam, so already I have a small head start, but still! I feel like the whole thing is kinda messy, I can’t wait till it’s done so I can finally get my life back, and so I can draw what I want.

Other than art I’ve not been doing much. It was our results day today for some GCSE’s we’ve taken, and we only got one result. This fails as I took way more than one test. It was physics and I got a B which I’m quite happy with, but for the amount of work I put in for it … it sucks. Anyway,  I think we’re finding out our chemistry and English results tomorrow, which is scary!

I’m really into LIGHTS at the moment. It’s kinda a change from what I normally listen to, but she’s so awesome! You should check out some of her songs.
