And I promise you I'm doing the best I can.
Last night I ate an avocado. And boy was it scrumptious, my dears! I just attacked it with a spoon like I was eating a grapefruit =P
So, I've been feeling a little blah lately. I don't know if it's been the flip-flopping of the weather since it can't make up it's mind or what, but I have just felt like complete shit. My head feels twice its size and I feel just gross.
PLUS I'm a bit bummed because my paintings I submitted (see a few posts below) did not get "accepted" to the exhibit I applied for. I got a nice generic email from the grad students who were "judging" the entries which said "We regret to inform you... blah blah blah... the amount of entries exceeded our expectations and we couldn't accept everyone... blah blah." In other words "Emily you shouldn't have submitted unfinished work and now you're fucked."
But I did drop into the Starbucks by my parents' house and asked them straight up if they are accepting any new artwork to be displayed and they are! So hopefully this will work out =)
In other art-related news I'm currently making a fashion illustration based on this photo. I wanted to do something with the Balenciaga dress, and I loved this photo. Right now it's just working and re-working in my sketchbook, and I can't decide if I want to complete the final illustration in b&w or color.
So anyway, since my blog has felt uninspired lately (I do apologize for the lack of posts) I decided to blog about another blogger who has plenty of inspiration. Frankie at Swell Vintage is one of my favorite bloggers who constructs the most amazing pieces of jewelry out of vintage materials.
For instance her necklaces made from antique drawer-pulls? Genius, I say. Genius!
I urge you guys to check out her blog, and her Etsy shop. I told her the only reason why I have yet to purchase one of her pieces is the simple fact that I'm broke =/ But I have a job interview on Saturday with American Eagle of all places, but a job is a job! They've gotten better clothes in recent seasons anyway...
