The sight of a kite tangled in a tree is equally happy and sad. This is hanging high above the fun pool on Southampton Common.

Google Thames

Google Maps showed me these aerial views of the Thames in London.

I love the shadows of the south bank skyline on the water.

Further west, the trees in Battersea Park and the power station are perfectly clear.

Final Project

My project on a poem by the Sufi mystic Rumi is complete and handed in. The only task remaining is to mount it in the gallery. I'm a little uncertain of how that will happen but I'll put the display up here when it's done. Here are the thirteen pictures on my beginner-level hand-made paper.

Since completing that work and some archaeology essays I'm in a period of freedom - until this evening, when the next archaeology course will begin. Of more moment is my acceptance for a BA course in illustration, starting in September.

Now I need to compile a list of other projects for the Summer.

I'm enjoying this advertising campaign for Schweppes. How does anyone draw like that?
