unsandpiper replied to your post: I almost fell out of the bath somehow …

this is why i kinda pour myself out of the bath like a slippery crab

I am really enjoying imagining this.

It’s a bit disappointing when I hurt myself and only develop a small bruise (or no bruise) because I want to point at a huge bruise and go “LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO ME!”


I almost fell out of the bath somehow when I stood up to get out and I banged my knee in the process of reasserting my balance and now I would like to lie down and be given gifts.


Drawing my thoughts (kinda).


Can you see me? Can I see myself? - Mavis Qu, 2013.

I found out today that this amazing young woman from my class died last week (there’s a news report here) and I wanted to post her work and say how lovely she was and that I’m gonna miss her and her brilliant smile. I don’t want to say something like “RIP” but just… this is weird and sad and I’ll miss you.


Anonymous asked: hey there! I think your Art is really cute, do you see yourself moving into illustration or continuing with your work in a fine art context?

Thank you! I am interested in illustration, but I don’t think about the future. Usually I do things very impulsively (including very big decisions), so I really don’t see myself anywhere in particular.

list of useful thoughts for later

  • sit down to do scribbly landscapes on envelopes
  • good things: fruit salad and lots of water and that exercise thing where you run up and down one step for ages
  • also, sitting in the waiting room at the train station (a good place to read and to see all the people who are from nearby)
  • hair is like an unruly child and that’s okay
  • don’t be fooled, you probably do need a coat

WHO wants to run through streets and forests with baguettes and stripy socks?


I feel really happy like everything is amazing. Like everything is clean clothes smell.


Since I love weightlifting bug so much (such a perfect oc), I wanted to draw lots of other bugs too. My favourite new bug characters are the bugs who love each other (on the left page).

Raspberry Journal 2014

Elliot and I are going to make poached eggs and roasted cauliflower something later and I have Rita Ora’s new song stuck in my head and there’s a smelly little dog sitting next to me and a pile of just-washed socks and pants behind me. I have just rejected some Twiglets and I am going to make myself a tasty sandwich. I’ve already eaten almost all of my box of raspberries because I’m a raspberry fiend and I can’t be stopped.


I’d like to thank the raspberry gods for granting me this moment of glory.
