I have discovered some brilliant bands through various friends sending me mix cd's and tapes over the years; Modest Mouse, Of Montreal and Tanya Donelly to name a few. I am in need of some new music at the moment, so I decided it'd be great to organise a mix-cd swap through this blog. If you would like to participate just leave a comment below and I will get one organised!
Part of the fun for me is making the cd covers, above are a few I have been given by generous folk in the past few years.

At the moment I keep noticing lots of great illustrations done in watercolours.. it makes me want to have a go myself, as I haven't painted anything in years!

These stunning drawings are the work of John Paul Thurlow, who reproduces his favourite magazine covers in an attempt to combine some of is favourite things, "portraiture, pencil sketching, typograpy, graphic design and ideas." See more here.

Recently I've noticed a lot of pretty balloons around so I thought I'd share a few of my favourite images.

A while ago I made this card for a friend's birthday using a photo of him as inspiration. I think I'll make some more custom silhouettes as it was fun to do!
I stumbled across these amazing silhouette portraits recently by Katie Soloker and it's really inspired me to experiment more. Aren't they great?

Had a lovely weekend in London, ending in a climb up Primrose Hill, where this Blur graffiti seen below was spotted (a line from For Tomorrow).. Portobello Road was also gorgeous in the sunshine, if a little busy..
