Recently bought the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty catalogue, and for ages i've wanted to try my hand at some fashion illustration. And what's more challenging than a McQueen dress made of clam shells from Norfolk i ask you? Yeah, exactly. Bit of a challenge, but i've enjoyed myself quite a bit, so this could be a pursuit i keep up. After all, i've finished university now, i need to figure out what i actually want to do with this degree i've (hopefully) acquired.

Going through old negatives i've gradually (really slowly when i can be bothered) to scan and make all digital, i came across some photos of my aunts wedding that i never got around to printing. They're not great. The lighting's shocking. But, the people are more interesting, and a lot has changed since then. Falling outs, death, grief, arguments, polite exchanges. It's a while back. And although i'm proud to say the event could have rivalled an episode of Shameless, it's actual quite a good memory now looking back, drunkards, world war vets, spilled champagne. And i never noticed how interesting my family could be in film either.
