Art, Clothes and Contemplations - restarted
Ok, so this is still my old blog (which was started December 21st), but my posts have been deleted, so I'm restarting it.
Art, Clothes and Contemplations
I've got a huge passion for art - drawing, painting, digital art, mood boards, designs and a big interest being photography - though I have big ideas when it comes to this, I have little skill, as well as the only practice of this being with a bad quality camera that would do strange things with zoom without permission as I took a shot.
I have a bit of an obsession with Tim Walker's photos at the moment, which inspires me to take my sister for a trod up the countryside, camera in hand, wearing whatever it is we manage to put together, as well as possibly lugging around the occasional prop.
Where we live, we're surrounded by hills and bush, trees, weeds and tall grass, as well as orchards and cattle. This aids my sister (Ireland) and I in interesting photos, but with the requirement of our shoes being caked in mud and our clothes having prickles and seeds that we picked up walking through the grass.
I love clothes, putting together outfits and styling myself, other people, or the models I draw in my designs, but I'm not a big fashion follower, I don't wear or like something because it's in this season, or if it's following a trend, sure, some trends may find themselves in this blog, but not because they're trends, because I like them, me and fashion have a bit of a love hate relationship (similar to the relationship I have with my extremely curly hair.) Lots of the clothes that will be on this blog will be vintage and/or charity shopped, second hand and hand-me-downs, and not to forget clothing that I've "borrowed" from the huge hoards and stocks of vintage from my mum, as well as a mixture of different things that suit all sorts of different personalities, I don't really have a particular style - it's simply "take what you like and leave the rest."
I'm a big reader, that loves to get my hands on a good book (have been interested in reading a few classics at the moment) as well as a love of good poetry, art and photography, I love writing - stories, occasional poem, I had also liked the idea of journalism for a bit there, and I even took interest in writing my assignments - writing is one of the reasons I started this blog, I had found that I really like it, as well as photography and a place to be able to share it.
Will be posting soon,
