10 May 2010


...i voted for the first time on Thursday. beforehand, i read through the three main party's manifestos and there was a lot of jargon to get my head around. i didn't like voting. i tried to stay awake throughout election night but i got bored. i had no staying power and i was shattered over the weekend as a result. i have been playing with watercolours, pencil crayons and have been trying to leave the mechanical pencil alone. i am now using PENCILS as in HB and 2B. they are very smudgy but add more to a drawing. i am heartbroken about the non-mechanical pencil use and will use them for other drawing jobs.

a little section about books i have seen out in the shops that you may like. these listed today are children's books. 'The Heart and the Bottle' by Oliver Jeffers is OUT NOW and his next book, 'Up and Down' is out in September 2010. 'Eric' by Shaun Tan is out now as well as 'Monday' by Anne Herbauts. I also found this book which is very nice called, 'The Girl with Bird's-Nest Hair' by Sarah Dyer.
