So today I set up my flickr account as I am applying to Kingston University and required that I put up 10 Observational drawings, 10 Research and Development drawings, 10 Final Pieces and 10 things I like. So it's all set up and ready to view FINGERS CROSSED! http://www.flickr.com/photos/essielovesyou/

I love this album, I was rather skeptical at first and wasn't so tempted to hear the other songs but I DID and the songs are INCREDIBLE! Such a variety an mixture of different genre's of music. My ultimate favorite is Ass On The Floor, sometimes I feel like the lyrics make sense to me, even though its a club track there's some sad undertones which I LOVE!
Then all the other collabo's are just ill! PLEASE GO BUY!

Did a fashion shoot of my designs today outside college for my portfolio. These clothes were designed and created by me. The theme was reconstruct and destroy, So I crumpled the jacket and used silver pins for studs and faux hair. I also used metal fixtures from a hardware store for the militaristic style sweater and took studs from an old belt and hand-painted them in gold varnish.

I LOVE MY ROPE CHAIN! I wear it whenever I can wherever I can. It's just sooooo 80's! I got it from a stall in camden which seems to have disappeared now :S It's also where I got my high-waisted levi shorts with the awesome silver studs all over em. I advise every Fresh Prince lovin freak-a-zoid to get one ;)
This is one of the three massive paintings I'm doing for my A2 project. This particular one is inpired by Nicki Minaj and J.M. Basquiat which I spent weeks on. I took particular pride, effort and stress in this particular painting using various mediums such as acrylic paint, coloured inks, spray paint, water-colour, colour pencil and stop-out (to make the writing stay clear from any paint). To me it's not really finished so I keep adding things and changing things here and there. Please leave comments...
