A little craft diary

I haven’t got my photos from the craft fair drawn up yet but I thought I’d do a little list of some of the original drawings I am selling at Unorthodox at the moment. (Unorthodox is a fantastic alternative independent shop in Wellingborough. They also have a great online shop!)

Interesting article on 3-D printing technology on the Beeb.

There has been a lot on Make about what can be done with 3-D printing, I’d never even heard of it til I started following their blog a few months ago. The stop motion film Dot was created using that technology too. I am wondering if it would be really useful for crafters. I’m looking forward to seeing what is done with it.

3-D Printing>3-D TV.

I’ve put the comics bit at the end because in general the people I know don’t know what the hell I am talking about and you may be the same. Or you might like comics. (I hope you like comics, they’re awesome!)

I’m currently reading the whole world of X men comics. I love X men but I fear this may start to get tired when 50% of my order is Wolverine based. I don’t even like Wolverine that much…

Though it has stopped my quota of red-headed girl protagonists being above 50% so maybe it’s a good thing? (I had to drop Young Allies despite a childhood passion for Firestar because it was so incredibly RUBBISH. Terrible. I am sad though cuz Hellcat popped up a few times and WHAT IF SHE DOES SOMETHING COOL?!(I love Hellcat))

Rather predictably most of my order (as with most of my illustrations) is girlie girlie girlie. I’m really enjoying Generation Hope, Gotham City Sirens, X 23 and I am SUPER looking forward to Batwoman getting her own comic Very Soon. OMG OMG! (End of insightful and feminist paragraph on females in comics. Sigh. I am probably not that great at talking about comics in another other than a EEE! LOOK! EXCITING! Manner.)

Favourite 20 comic book females. The list is a little light on supervillianesses but I agree with many of the choices. I might compile my own one shortly!

Just to complete the geek of this post a very sweet and funny story of meeting Neil Gaiman.

I’m off work with an ill today (or yesterday depending on when this gets posted) so I thought I’d do a thorough update. I’m very excited to have my first craft fair (link) in two weekends time though as I have found out there is mulled wine and roasted chestnuts I will probably spend any profits I make on tasty things.

Last night I went to go and see Priscilla Queen of the Desert the musical. It’s not quite as sensitive as the film but 1/ Alf from Home and Away was in it (10/10) and 2/ I loved the costumes.

I have fallen a bit in love with this chap:

Oliver Thornton who plays Felicia.

Here he is (on the left) wearing bloomers.
I’ve always been pro bloomers.

I’ve been working on some new stuff for an exhibition:

Glasses lady (This is not its official title I am just feeling unimaginative at the moment.

French lady

Ghost and cat

My cousin went on the NUS protests in London. I am super proud of her (She didn’t throw anything at police from the top of Milbank!!) as I was a theoretical socialist and never campaigned against anything at all which I now thoroughly regret. Her and her friends took some awesome pictures and these are my favourites:

Best Banner Ever.

This guy is so cool. (The banner isn’t his own!)
