I haven't been slack this week, really.

A week ago today I had my interview for the 2005 admissions to the Fine Art course at VCA. It was rather frightening and I don't really know how I went, as the panel of interviewers try their damndest (is that a word?) to give no indication of their feelings whatsoever. I'll find out in a couple of weeks. Since then, I've been winding down and doing a bit more work.

Here's the latest on The Embroidery, which I really should have progressed further on...

I also finished knitting my Very First Jumper (jumper = sweater for those of you who are confused). It's a top down raglan knit entirely in the round, therefore being completely seamless! Woot! I measured up a jumper I had, measured up my guage, did all the maths and started knitting away. The yarn is Four Seasons 'Zebra', which I bought on sale for $0.99 a ball. I think I only used about eight balls, so I got an ace jumper for cheap! Yay!

I've also been knitting a scarf on the tram... but forgot to take a photo of it. So, later. But now, here's a nudie painting warning...!

Okay, here are the two paintings I've been working on for the Linden postcard show:

That's it for now -- I have to head to my life drawing class, but I promise to post more this coming week than I did in the one just gone...

Hi Crumpet, Gadgetgirl from Glitter here.
I just found your blog. Man that portrait you are working on is bloody AMAZING! You are just so talented. Have a great day (stay cool!!) I'll be back.

Hey Giz, what's yr new email address? We need to invite you and Kym over for dinner and a movie. :) I don't have the email you sent anymore...

About the nudie poses, the original drawings were probably 20 minutes. I re-drew them for the paintings though.
