What I Hate: Wasps

This is the second part to my 'I Hate...' series for uni. From this you can probably tell that I hate wasps. They are way too annoying and I feel that they are meaner than bees. Bees die when they sting, which means surely they never want to sting you. Wasps on the other hand are just mean. 

FYI: did you know that we have over 1000 species of wasp in the UK alone. YES. 1000. kill me now.

What I hate: Kitten Heels

In my most recent project I've been looking at the things that I hate. Yes. Hate. I've found that i say hate a lot, when really i only mean dislike but I'm lazy. So I've been finding ways at making the things I 'hate' look pretty and attractive. 

This image is from 'I hate kitten heels', which I really do hate. Although doing my research has shown me some nice versions the older ones on the other hand, the ones I probably would have worn as a seven year old, are repulsive to me. So frustrating. Although these have turned out looking like the delightful pair from wizard of oz.

Behind the scenes at the World Museum.

So a few weeks ago my friends and I got a chance to take a peek in the World Museum in Liverpool's archives. We got to take a look at the stuffed animals that weren't out in the museum, numerous bones and hundreds of draws of insects. I also got to take quite a few photos of our time there so here they are for you to enjoy! It was amazing to see just how much they don't put on display in the museum and the guy who was showing us round said they had quite a bit more too. 

I would really recommend a visit! You have to book in advance so be sure to get the right information, I may start doing this more often in different museums and galleries. There seems to be so much that we never see!

Graphic Arts Research Project.

I've finally finished my Graphic arts research project! (Also known as a dissertation for those of you who don't know). I wrote about Royal portraiture, being a huge lover of the Queen and the Royal family it was an ideal subject for me to write about. Meaning I got to visit a lot of beautiful palaces and see a lot of beautiful paintings. I bound it as a book which took a lot of time and effort, but hopefully it will pay off in the end. I'm just glad its done now and I can focus on my other projects and actually get a life again! Here are just a few pictures I took on hand in day along with my beautifully unmade bed.
