So it's been two weeks since I officially became a third year. Scary stuff. It's started quite well, I've already completed a project and I am embarking on research for my big dissertation that will become 20% of my final grade. I have included a few things from my sketchbook from this first project I did, an example of some typography that I designed and a sketch of a cemetery angel that I did in preparation for an idea which in the end I didn't go through with, but I enjoyed the sketching nevertheless.

I am getting excited about some new project ideas and some potential collaboration with my flatmate who does journalism, so hopefully there will be some good stuff on the go, watch this space! I also designed a birthday card for my brother yesterday, which I will be putting up on Tuesday so that he gets to see it before anyone else! I'm surprisingly proud of it and I wish I could get away with drawing like that for uni, I just doubt anyone would take me seriously if I did. The card involves a certain character from a tv show that my brother and I have recently gotten back into watching, and it's a shame that its run finally came to and end recently. Amazing writing.

My Daily Chalk blog has been going quite well for the last two weeks, luckily it hasn't become a chore yet and I am still enjoying coming up with a new thing to draw every morning, though one night I did nearly forget and had to rush to get a picture of it before it got wiped off the board!

Had my second anniversary with Chris too last weekend, I remember writing on here about the same thing last year which is quite scary. It's quite amazing to think that I have managed to keep this blog going for a whole year despite it's trivial nature, but I kind of feel it has helped me get myself a little more organised.

Look out for the birthday card in the next post - and maybe even some spelling mistakes... (maybe I should change my blog title..)
