British University Artists

I've just joined this
site for artists that are at university. Its really good because the whole idea of it is to promote university artists. So, if you're at uni, you should definitely sign up!
I've also sorted out what competitions I'm going to aim to enter this summer. I'm no photographer, but I have had this idea for a series of photos for a while now, so I'm thinking of actually creating them and if they're good enough entering them in the National Portrait Gallery's Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. Which would be pretty amazing.
There's also the Salon Prize - which can be absolutely anything you want, so I need to get thinking of some ideas. There's also The AOI Images 35 which would be pretty cool.
I Want to do them just so I keep thinking and creating. Its nice to have an aim. I also want to join the Saatchi Online Students Gallery as that would be pretty good! But I want to put my best stuff on there, so whilst I'm sorting that out, I might as well sort out my portfolio!! So, I've got LOADS to do. I can't wait! :)
By the way, I don't have any work to show you because it was my mum's birthday yesterday! Happy Birthday Mother! :D

One day after we went to London part 1, we went to London again for part 2! would have been nice to have stayed there but we had to work. We went up to help Jessie Douglas at Streetfest, but we all got our own canvases to do as part of the live art there! which was amazing (Tom and me shared a canvas), So a big THANK YOU to Jessie for that.
Here are some photos from the day:

This is the Posca wall that was there - anyone could draw on it:

Our one:

I think that, to be honest, we did pretty well. Tom's is the man, and mine is the clown. The 'Celebrate originality' bit is Adidas' slogan... Adidas sponsored the event. And I really like what we did :).
