I recently found some old sketches I made at age 11, to my knowledge these are the only sketches I made as a child!! I wish I had taken up art then!
It’s time for me to introduce you to a few dear friends.
Firstly my mentor Marc Silver presented his new film 3 1/2 minutes at the Sundance film festival yesterday. The film covers the murder trial of Jordan Davis with this message ‘The more we see each other as human beings, the less inevitable will be violent outcomes from racial bias and disparate cultures colliding.’
Marc inspired me to start VJing 10yrs ago and along with his partner at Yeast Productions taught me how to shoot film and mix clips, I then went on to cover tours for them and contribute to shows for Courtney Pine, Nitin Sawhney, Dennis Rollins etc etc. One of Marc’s films also inspired me to start painting :)
Next up, my friend Evan Raskob is in the guardian today p45, he teaches coding and design at Ravensbourne College and also taught me the coding language ‘Processing’ many years ago :)
And lastly VJ mates Funk Cutter and Emma Plunket recently posted a photo of when we all vj’d in Trafalgar Square for the festival ‘Love Music Hate Racism’ many moons ago. It brought back dear memories :)
I now have a super cute handbag sized slimline planner in addition to my A5 sized one.
This weekend I have a huge list of things to do including practicing painting colour combinations with watercolours.. I am intrigued by the combination of purple and green, especially after seeing a Cerinthe plant growing in a neighbour’s garden.
I’m also weeding my garden, since looking at my garden pics here I realise how much of a mess it has been in the past… and I was soo proud of it!! lol
I hope you all have a great weekend too!!
Here is your desktop wallpaper calendar for April.
It was shot at the botanical gardens in Paris.. I just love the vibrant red colour of the stems with green ‘nodules’ forming on them, it’s a space-age looking plant!
