Aww thank you sweetie! It was really awesome, it’s a little festival in Bristol called ArcTanGent that’s only been going for two years but it’s going to get bigger and bigger every year I bet, one day hopefully bands like Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky will be playing there!

Hey, thank you very much! In the first year I was mainly inspired by Dan Mountford and then for A2 it was Tom Hunter, their work helped me an awful lot :-) 

Last week I went to a huge live action medieval role-play festival and had one of the best and weirdest weekends of my life with some lovely people (it was like actually being in Game of Thrones or something) and today I’ve just got back from a fantastic post rock/post metal/math rock festival with Sam which was so much fun, I think it’s safe to say I’ve had a pretty great summer, I’m just looking forward to starting art college in a couple of weeks and making new friends and developing my work, I can’t wait!

I’m crying my eyes out over my pet rabbit Elmo who died in the most heartbreaking way yesterday. One of our cats had killed a collared dove and brought it into the house, so mum had put it in a box to be buried and then Elmo came running over to see what was in the box. When he got close to it and saw the dead dove he stopped running all of a sudden and seized up, he made a screaming noise and then just collapsed and died. I just don’t understand it, he was only 3 and he was such a happy bunny and I just went into the kitchen to put him back in his hutch for the night and burst into tears when I remembered he’s not there any more.
