Breakfast at tiffanys

I haven't updated for ages cos we have no internet in our house right now :(
But at the moment we are doing a narrative illustration project and I'm doing mine on the book 'Breakfast at Tiffanys.'This is Holly Golightly.^ I wanted to show what kind of person she is by putting all her stuff around her. I don't know if it works, I quite like it but I will see what my tutor thinks.And this is the writer guy who tells the story.^

After that I tried drawing a scene just to see how it would come out so I drew the part where Holly and Paul meet properly for the first time when she climbs through his window in the middle of the night...
It's hard to distance the illustrations away from the film and Audrey Hepburn because they are so well known.

Three Sisters

Another one for 'Conversation Piece.'^

Today Tamsin, Phil and Glyn came round and we took some more photos experimenting with fairylights because I went into my attic the other day and found like five sets!!!

I got electrocuted! It must have been broken fairylight bulb that touched my finger and the two little bits of wire went onto my skin and eectrocuted my finger! I have two black dots and a burn mark there now- all done in a millisecond before I screamed and jumped up. It was weird.

Anyway the photoshoot was fun, we dressed up all gothic with glitter and tiaras and stuff. Phil has the photos. I will have to wait til he puts them up on flickr or something before I can see them.

I only have today to do four more drawings for the project, plus the essay and everything else. Haha I am not going to get it done. I am going shopping today instead :)
