Thanks to everyone for their thoughtful advice or just nice thoughts on my last post. Two weeks is up tomorrow and I've decided to go ahead and continue with the study. It's not what I thought I'd be doing this year but maybe it's for the best. I didn't want a year of not being creative and I do tend to lack focus without the direction of study I go I guess....(deep breath).....
On the relaxing front I have been putting the web to good use and stumbling around a few sites that made me laugh. A lot. You know when you are so tired/stressed and something makes you laugh and laugh. And laugh...And you have to wonder whether it's really that funny or you are just on the verge of....well the verge really.
See what you think of Awkward Family Photos. Maybe you've seen it already. Maybe it's so funny because you see a little bit of your own awkwardness reflected back at you? Whatever it is, it did the trick for me.
The other site is Informaniacs - a humorous cartoon take on social media I came by via Brown Paper Bag. I haven't gone down the twitter path but the themes are not unfamiliar to me or the concept of blogging. Maybe you might see yourself in some of Mathew Thurbers sharp observations I've copied here?

LOL! have a great week :)

Oh geez. I've a doozy of a decision ahead of me in the next couple of weeks. I figure sooner or later the planets will align and all will become clear - right? RIGHT? Best of luck on that study front...

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.

Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
