Design is easy.....?

Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.

Mischief

(viewed 1049 times)
Neighbour's cat. Always in our garden getting up to mischief, playing with the other cats and occasionally fighting late at night.

Rocks of Solitude - Edzell.

Went for a bit of a walk along the River Esk in Edzell yesterday. Eight of us set off; discovered an old fishing bothy, had a picnic lunch on the 'rocks of solitude' beside the river - where you can often see Salmon leaping in spring/early summer. Matt and Sarah went foraging for mushrooms to put in a risotto, and Lucy showed off her gymnastic skills on a tree trunk high above the ground. A well deserved ice cream was had in the village 7/8 miles later, and then the intrepid eight headed home. :)

Glasgow, Beer, Crochet and Printing

Summer holidays nearly at an end. Visited some great places, (see below) but also managed a quick visit to Glasgow. Stayed at 15 Glasgow and popped into BrewDog Glasgow (surprise surprise!)and also visited the excellent Kelvingrove Museum. I've also been escaping the computer and doing some 'amigurumi' (Japanese style character crochet) and a bit of lino printing, which you can see more of here.

London, Baby!.....

Took 16 of our Vis Com students to London again this year. Many thanks to 1977 Design and YCN for talking to the students, answering their questions and giving them some good advice. Definitely the highlight of the trip! We also went to the Design Museum which was great; the Wim Crouwel exhibition was superb. Thankfully the weather was also pretty impressive, which allowed for lots of outdoor dining and drinks on our wanderings too.
