Chameleon Progress, New Job & Sunny Fal!

 I finally kicked myself into gear and am finishing my chameleon poster for Barcelona Zoo. 
Thank God! I kinda just want it out of my hair so as I can concentrate on doing this project for my friend Jon in Ecuador.

So here's some progress pictures

 I recently got a job at the local Italian washing dishes... which is a big step up from caring for old people... or should I say, its a big drop in responsibility, which I'm grateful for. I'll still be working at the nursing home when I'm in Plymouth, but for term time, dish washing suits me fine. It may even be easy enough for me to do almost every night of the week, as it turns out to only be a couple of hours a night, which can easily be squeezed in around uni work. 

I'm also happy because I get to practice my Spanish, and possibly learn Brazilian Portuguese and Italian! So, its a great multi-tasking time for me :) I'm just excited because I wanted to learn Italian next, and then this job pretty much lands in my lap (thanks to my housemate Gillian), and voila! An opportunity to learn Spanish. I think the Italian chef is up for teaching me, as long as I teach him English. He tried saying something about Mr. Bean last night, and I thought he was just saying something odd in Italian, oh dear! The boy needs to learn to speak slower and not join every word together! hehe. Should be fun to teach him.

Falmouth is super sunny today! I'm going to the beach for a bit after I complete this poster, have a cup o tea and a brownie maybe. 

Over n out! I'll show you the completed poster soooon. And then during the week I'll put up the proper poster that has all the text on it.

Testing out Egon Schiele's style.

This could only happen in Falmouth- My housemate's friend came round the other day with a projector, and they messed around outside for a while... when I came out to see what was happening, they had projected a film onto the back of the house and set up a sound system and deck chairs! 
Its sooooo awesome! Bring on film night! 
I'll put up some photos of it soon!

Barcelona Sketchbook, More Barsa & I Like My Feet Apparently

Ok, today I've been doing a whole ton of paperwork and everything, and so I thought it would be a good day to catch up on photographing the past few life drawing sessions, and also my Barcelona sketchbook work. There are a few spreads in there I'd like to colour up, I may even have another bash at digital. 

here you go!

The last 3 are from England.
I'll be posting up the life drawing sessions one at a time tomorrow, along with some other sketchbook work :)
