Dan-ah Kim

I've been a little ill recently. A bad start to the new semester. I'm currently in bed. And just had a cup of tea, left to brew too long and far too bitter. It's made me feel a little queezy.

This is an artist who I have loved for a quite a while now. Her name is Dan-ah Kim.

1.The Stars are Against Me Tonight
2.To Alive to Stay
4.Bathe in the Setting Sun

I love the narrative in her work. And the beautiful way in which she uses different textures and patterns. She also makes films which are equally as nice.

Today I've also been looking at japanese illustrators, Tadahiro Uesugi and Tatsuro Kiuchi.

I think I'd like very much to go to Japan with a freind and travel round all the islands.
Hokkaido, Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku.

Berlin part one

On the train to Paris. I liked this uncertain mark on the window my mum left.

Goodbye Birdy House

I painted this bird house yesterday. I think I might get one of my own when I get home. I'm leaving for Berlin this afternoon. I'm getting a night train. I can't wait.

I'm designing a leaflet for an organic farm.
The time I've been here is the coldest it's been in 20 years.

Big Fire

bWe found a fire salamander whilst weeding the garden and the night before yesterday an owl kept us up all night with it's noise. I like it here.
Happy new year.
