Working 9 til 5

Firstly - a bit of apology on the lack of posts this month.

I am definitely understanding the true meaning of third year thanks to the overwhelming amount of work.

It seems all I am doing at the moment is sleep - library - food, in whatever order I choose! But I have got a few things to be looking forward to this Christmas to make up for all the hard work.

This weekend I'm off to Longleat - yes the safari park with the monkeys - for some well deserved giggles and good food with friends.

For New Year we are also escaping again to a little cabin in the South of Wales to have a right laugh in our onesies and drink copious amounts of Wine.

But for now - I have to continue my hunch over the Mac to get all this work completed for hand in which is only a couple of weeks away. One of the things I've been creating is a blog - funny I know as I enjoy this one - but do take a look if you are interested. It's called 'Keep calm and just graduate'... I've also been developing a beautiful sketchbook and reliving the fun I used to have in college, basically cutting and sticking, but predicting a trend for 2013. Looks fab so I"ll photocopy some page for you to see in due course.

Speaking of college I managed to un-earth an image I sketched about 5 years ago. Shame I don't sketch half as much as I used to. It used to be a way for me to relax and occupy myself when I was younger, now I find I don't have the time! Maybe something for the Christmas holidays I can look forward to again?

Daddy bands are back

Yay! Well it seems like that big bands of the 70s and 80s are making a comeback, thanks to the success of the boybands of the late few years.

The rumours are true, Black Sabbath are re-uniting after 33 years to headline Download festival, along with a load of gigs and a new studio album! They held a very exciting countdown on 11/11/11 which was to celebrate the first album since 1978!

It's hard to believe their most successful song 'Paranoid' was from so long ago and defied what Heavy Metal is meant to be.

On the subject of re-forming, Duran Duran are also making a comeback! Their new song 'Girl Panic' has a fantastic new video. Leading supermodels such as Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford play the part of the Simon Le Bon and others, being interviewed about the 30 year gap. Watch the models cause havoc around the newly opened Savoy Hotel with a delectable 80s vibe, fast drumbeat and power love lyrics so synonymous with the Duran sound.

The Daddy bands are back!
