22-26th March 2017

Well, I have been busy. Drawing, anyway. Not working. I wasn’t in the mood to be doing something as productive as working. Dear God, no. I officially have no idea what I’m doing with my college art project so I’m saving that up for the Easter holidays, and right now I’ll just do what I do best … nothing. plus an occasional drawing

FYI in the middle photo where it says ‘10 things I hate about that bitch Amanda’ was just a joke to wind her up, as when I post photos of my sketchbook on Facebook or whatever, she always zooms up really close to read every microscopic section of text. the writing under there us just random crap and I pixelated it out to annoy her lol
Returning back to tumblr.. I need blogs to follow

- Funny, humor, memes ( I love surreal memes), filthy frank, idubbbz, h3h3

- art, smash booking, aesthetic, vintage pics

- alternative fashion, harajuku, aesthic/art hoe fashion, street

- hair, make up

- oddly satisfying gifs/vids

- Weed, lsd, drugs etc

- pagan/new age philosphies etc.

- lana del rey, halsey, Issues, gorillaz, palaye royale, Tyler/OF, soundcloud rap etc

shit like that… help me out

lack of political or sjw posts is best.


27-28th March 2017

Its been a stressful few days at college. Some people need to understand that hearing “you look like a living zombie” as soon as you walk in is NOT going to improve the fed-up, tired, bitchy mood I woke up with that day.

I did feel pretty bad for everyone later on though. I can be a pain to deal with when I’m being a “mardy bum”.
Or so I have been told.

I used drawing in my sketchbook as a de-stress tactic that day. Seems to help. Would recommend.

Oh yeah, I went to the cinema with the family too, to see ‘Kong’. I got really bored during the trailers so just started drawing my bro (first pic). The film was better than I thought. I recommend this also
