draw it out of me.


(top from river island, bodycon skirt from h&m, brown tights from primark)

Busy and no internet times again. The past week has mostly consisted of Elliott (of A Song For Elliott fame... haha) coming to stay with me. It's been really nice having him around, and the flat is very quiet without him. I will miss morning videos, comfort thumb, his scribbles, t-rex and constant annoyance. I'm glad he's much happier now.

The rest of my days have been filled with putting up furniture - including a wardrobe and a desk - and the bead curtain, and drawing nice words from movies. The "don't go" is from Where The Wild Things Are - "don't go, I'll eat you up I love you so."

Also, I received a gorgeous illustration of me from lovely lovely Ella. She really is wonderful, I love it so much.

I'm currently at mother's, laid up in her spare bed stealing her internet and eating her food. I'm poorly sick and I wanted to be looked after! Hope you're all much better than I am.

(Illustrations top to bottom by David Shrigley, Elliott Langford, Ella Masters and myself.)










Just a final little note to say my thoughts are with anyone who has been affected by the earthquake and tsunami in the news today. More devestating news, and I can't imagine how horrible it must be.
