Studio Soundtrack~

Music is a huge part of my process, rather this be going for a walk with Radiohead blaring so I can't hear the seagulls or in my studio space (currently my bed) which is a very dangerous game to be playing and has resulted in one too many naps....My music taste varies a lot and I used to listen to a lot of soundtrack music while I drew.  This has changed a lot recently where I live with people who have shown me amazing music and now when I can't draw or work I will just listen to albums on repeat in the hope that something sparks.

I thought I would share with you some songs and artists I've been listening to recently in the form of a Studio Soundtrack which I've made on Spotify and will link at the end~ These are songs which I've been listening to for the last couple of weeks.

1) All I Need - Radiohead

2) 33 'God' - Bon Iver

3) 22 (Over soon)  -Bon Iver

4) White Water Hymnal - Fleet Foxes
5) Red Earth and Pouring Rain - Bear's Den
6) Aurora - Running with the Wolves
7) Stay Alive - Jose Gonzalez
8) 9 Crimes - Damien Rice
9) Rambling Man - Laura Marling
10) Cross your fingers - Laura Marling
11) Re:Stacks - Bon Iver

12) Karma Police - Radiohead

Artist Talks: Phoebe Atkey

Phoebe Atkey is a talented artist whose work I first saw on Instagram. Her commitment and enthusiasm for the arts is very inspiring.

I interviewed Phoebe to gain more of an insight to her interests and how she creates such beautiful works using a variety of media.

How often do you draw? 
I try to draw everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. What artists influence you?  I have always been interested in children’s book illustrations especially those of Quentin Blake and Ernest Shepherd. These two artists inspired me to draw from a very young age. As I have got older, I have also become interested in the works of Saul Bass, Herbert Leupin and Paul Rand.
Do you see yourself going to Art School?  I would like to try getting into the industry without going to uni. However, I am lucky to live near an extremely good arts university, s…

Being content and tolerating uncertainty

It's been well over a year since my last blog post. I've been writing still just not in a consistent space. I've got a few pieces over at On the Beat Mag and on the Pressing Matters Journal. It's funny how I'm starting off by trying to show how I have been keeping busy, as a way of defining my offline presence on this space. This is something I have always been very good at maintaining, an image of being busy and content in what I am doing. I think with this keeping busy, comes a sense of running from oneself in order to keep my head above the water. In recent weeks I have been writing a lot more than I have been making art. I have had projects on the go, but not pushing myself fully into them which I find frustrating because I'm not being fully present in the moment of what I am doing. In this I perhaps lose the essence of why I am doing it.

When you are in a state of transition there are a few ways you can process? deal? tackle? it. I am someone who has alway…
