Accordian books

I bought a really cool little accordion style sketchbook from a little shop in SoHo (New york!) and I've been scribbling in it every now and then for about 2 weeks, its started out sort of like a story... Im not really sure where it's going but I'm excited to find out...

I want to go back to New York! Newcastle is just boring in comparison.

Bat for Lashes

Something I finished before I went away but I never got chance to post.... A little illustration I did of Natasha Khan of the wonderful Bat for Lashes. If you haven't heard their second album yet, I just have to insist you listen to it as soon as! it's very lovely.

Marching Bands Of Manhattan

"I wish we could open our eyes,
To see in all directions at the same time"

Death Cab For Cutie

If I had a soundtrack to go along with my adventure in NY, this would be it.

I heart NY!

I'm bacccckkkk!!
Had a wonderous time in the big apple! Theres so much to see and do I actually ran out of time, which only means I'll have to go back again very soon. I have no idea what labour day weekend is, but there were lots of sailors in times square which was kinda neat.

I've decided I'm moving to New York! And when I do, I will live in greenwich village, cause its so cool and my new favourite place :)

I've got loads of pictures, I'll have to get them off my camera soon as I find the cable. I have soo many ideas too for new illustration work, I got this really interesting book from the MoMA bookshop that's really inspired me, it's a shame the actual exhibitions were closed at the time. Who closes a gallery on a tuesday anyway?! Very random.

The World At Large

"I like song's about drifters, books about the same, they all seem to make me feel a little less insane..."

The World At Large, Modest Mouse

Possibly my favourite Modest Mouse song ever, it's at least in my top 3 anyway.
I love them so.
