Modern Day Greek Gods Uni Brief

This is my version on the Greek Goddess Aphrodite, as everyones favourite lady Jordan or Katie Price (as she likes to be called).
Works progressing at some pace, not necessarily a fast one. Had a crit today and looks like I'm on the right path just got to choose the right bits of each image. As each God has a collage at A2 size it's just finding the right images for the book.

This is an image I have picked out for Apollo, the Greek God of Healing, Music and Prophecy.Who else but Bono & Geldof eh ?

In other news the 'Where The Wild Things Are' soundtrack is a fantastic album. Spotify it kids !!

Happy New Year, to whoever reads this poor excuse for a blog.
Works getting done. Slowly. But its New Years Resolution time. I've never done it before.

"The tradition of the New Year's Resolutions goes all the way back to 153 B.C. Janus, a mythical king of early Rome was placed at the head of the calendar. With two faces, Janus could look back on past events and forward to the future. Janus became the ancient symbol for resolutions and many Romans looked for forgiveness from their enemies and also exchanged gifts before the beginning of each year."

Apparently. So i thought it would be good to document my resolutions/aims for the year...So then i can come back and check how pathetic my attempt was.

1/// To Not Waste Time.
Wether it be looking at people on facebook i don't know but think are attractive or knobs or generally sat monged out watching clips of cats fixing printers on youtube.

2/// Be More Productive
With all this free time that i have gained from target one, i will do alot more work. WORK WORK WORK (Pub Club Sleep)

3/// Be Better With Money
I want to go weeks, maybe months without going into the bank to either challenge a charge or put some cash in to stop me going overdrawn.

4/// Not To Moan/Whine Or Bitch
So what if one of my best mates cripples me in football training ? he's a friend and so what if I'm his third best friend ?

5/// Go To At Least 5 Tottenham Games
Yes i support them. I argue till I'm blue in the face about how Assou-Ekotto is the most improved defender in the premiership.

6/// To Not Move Back Home After University
Yes sorry Mum but the quiet streets of Stourport-On-Severn are not for me. Manchester, London, Heck I'd prefer Stoke

7/// To Do Everything I Can Possibly Do For The Ecclesall Meerkats
Yes new boots and a new Ghanaian football this is the year the meerkats can take glory in the Barclays Sheffield Hallam Inter-Murial Trophy Vase.

8/// To Travel
Wether i go back and do Camp America and travel after or travel around Europe. I will answer the Kooks question "do you want to see the world?" Yes Kooks I do.

9/// To Record Music
Suka T & The Runcimans. On It. Big In 2010. Well within a flat above a gun shop.

..and the most important one..

10/// Get A Job As An Illustrator/General Graphic Man/Advertiser/Footballer

Busy Year Ahead
