kazzlet asked: Hey! I see you might be going to MCM on Sunday as Zelda from Skyward Sword. I shall be there with my boyfriend, we will be Fi and Link for the three days. It would be amazing to get some photos with you if that's okay? ( If we bump into you) >.<
Yes, that would be amazing, I hope my outfit’s good enough to match yours! I’ll probably be spending a lot of time in the Comic Village section ‘cause my boyfriend’s got a stall there so pop by there if you don’t catch me elsewhere! (In fact, pop by there anyway ‘cause it’s cool.)
I haven’t been posting much recently, since I hit my uni deadline it’s all been meetings, research and job applications, not very interesting stuff.
However, it’s MCM this weekend and in my spare time I’m trying to make a Zelda (Skyward Sword) costume to wear to it and this is as far as I’ve got as of right now. I may have left it a bit late (my GCSE level dressmaking knowledge makes me not the swiftest seamstress) but as I’m going on the Sunday I get a couple of extra days at least. Here’s hoping I don’t end up having to rush it.
Artists, performers and creatives thinking about finding and setting up spaces for art or live events: The Artsadmin Youth Board are holding a talk on doing just that on Thursday 23rd of May at 7:30pm, at Toynbee Studios, East London.
Speakers from LUPA, Artlicks, the Institute of Jamais Vu and local council property teams will be discussing the journey and logistics of scouting out and running spaces for creative processes and events. It’s £3 to book which pays for a drink at the bar.
For more information and to book tickets, check out the event on Artsadmin’s site: http://www.artsadmin.co.uk/events/3327
Hope to see you there!

Don’t think I got round to posting this before, this was an illustration that went into Arts London News about how Tesco may be monopolising the media.
This is what my final website ended up looking like for my university project on sex and consent. I still feel a bit uncomfortable being a kind of authoritative voice on such a serious matter and I think that if such a website were to be put together it ought to be done by a team of people, not just one gal telling teens ‘this is how you should or shouldn’t have sex’. Still, I was pleased with the idea!

My Splatterworld poster has enjoyed a couple of weeks living at Hyde Park Corner tube station in London but unfortunately this weekend it gets taken down. Did you spot it on your travels?
So, today was my final deadline for my BA degree in Graphic and Media Design/Design for Illustration. It’s not entirely set in for me yet (and I guess I still have my degree show to work towards so it’s not like I’m ENTIRELY finished) but here marks the end of my work towards earning a qualification… and begins my work towards earning a living!
Feedback would be appreciated for this educational website on sex and consent for 12-14 year olds. - readthesigns.net
Building on an earlier idea of using road signs as an easy way to remember guidelines on consent, I’ve created a simple website with a thought exercise for children. The style is very simple, I know, but I wanted the characters to remain ungendered and not too heavily featured to prevent it from seeming like certain scenarios only happen to certain people. I’ll probably make some kind of logo for it, though, that homepage is looking a bit hollow.
What I’m mainly looking for feedback on is if I’ve approached these matters with the right attitude - is it sensitive enough? Is it too vague? Is it patronising? Can I word things better without having too much writing?
(Although if you want to bring up another problem like if it looks like crap on your browser or stuff isn’t working for you, of course I’d like to know that, also.)
Thanks in advance! (Here’s another question mark so that Tumblrites can answer the post directly:) ?
