...aye so i thought it best just to add a line or two to say that the university bit of illustration is now over. we handed all our work in on 23rd May at 4pm and then i went to the pub to drink and the chinese buffet to eat and then it was back to the pub. i spent last weekend in wales with lady katie and shmalice. the photos are on my laptop and so i will have to post a photo another day. i am finding it increasingly difficult to breathe and relax. i have been doodling more cowboy birds as i like drwaing their boots and have been collecting more lettering research. i have two new sketchbooks to doodle in and am going to try keep a sketchbook but not try so hard that it may kill me like last time.

this weekend me and the mister went to see the Body Worlds exhibition at the museum of science and industry which is at Deansgate in Manchester. i wasn't allowed to take photographs because the exhibition features real dead people and some of parts of the exhibition is of a sensitive nature. find out more about it here. Dr Gunther Von Hagens is a German scientist and physician who invented Plastination which is a process he uses to preserve dead bodies for the purpose of research with regards to anatomy and understanding of the human body.
