Attending a wedding today and didn’t have a black handkerchief to make a pocket square so I cut up an old t-shirt. With my obsession with perfection, I needed to have a pocket square that stays in formation. Just as well I have some leftover watercolour paper. Needle n thread and an Iron press later this is the outcome! Paying homage to Mr Steal Yo Grandma.
So today in my lecture I started doodling, see I concentrate better when I’m doing something else, don’t ask me why I just do. So it started with a tiger, which then progressed to a cross with a tiger eye followed by an ankh leading to various Egyptian themes. NOW REMOVE ILLUMINATI OUT OF YOUR HEAD BEFORE I COME OUT OF THE SCREEN AND SLAP THE JESUS IN YOU. Just felt like drawing and these where the first things that flew into my mind at the time. The arrangement of stuff needs adjusting but overall I may be on to something!

So it’s nearing the end of my second semester, MY FIRST YEAR IN UNI!!!!! and we have a project due in May. Now you know me, my creative process involves dabbling with some crafts here and there (and not the voodoo kind though I could throw in some sugar and spice). To kick start my creative mindset, I thought it would be cool to up-cycle a bag I had from last year. It amazes me because all of a sudden there’s a mad rush for draw-string bags (THE GEIST NEVER LIES). So me and and my bargain ways got this bag DEAD CHEAP, but as usual you get what you pay for. This bag has torn in so many places, I’ve lost count the amount of times I’ve had to repair it. But I can’t leave my objects alone; so I asked my Bezzy mate Marcy D the 411 on the alREADY-MADE ways of doing things (the crowd around him laughs in confusion to try and act as if they know what he’s talking about). And here is the outcome, with love from Africa once again (so I did have to use my voodoo after all). The problem I faced was the buckles that fell off, either side of the front pockets (that I couldn’t be bothered to fix -_-) and the light shone bright towards the THUMBTACKS! Oh my mind does have it’s moments of brilliance. AND I only bled once! There is hope for me yet.
