Summertime. Mostly I've been chilling and hanging out with friends from back home and having some awesome times. But today I got back into the habit of trawling through design blogs and stuff , especially Canadian design blog 'Poppytalk' (, and I felt like typing a little. At the moment, I'm kinda annoyed with myself, as looking at inspiring stuff makes me want to doodle and draw and I don't have a notebook. Guys, always carry notebooks !

I forgot I hadn't posted my final piece from my last project, and left this at the point where I was making the foamboard 'prototypes'! I wanted to use woodwork, so I managed to nab some wooden veneer from the woodwork studio. Due to it being thin slices of wood, I could easily screenprint onto shapes of it. I wanted to then fix these to MDF or something to make it pop out more and become more 3D, but I wasn't too good with time management this time around. It left the final piece looking a bit flat, but I want to do more wooden wall pieces like this so I have room to get better at it in the future.
