"And they all lived happily ever after" he read

I'v been doing so much work this week for a levels. They have practically taken over my life, I thought I could handle four but I really can't. However, I do enjoy some of it. Obviously my favourite is art, our starting point is the word 'collections'. I've decided to do collections of fairytales, seeing as I'm obsessed with Disney anyway. These are a few of my inspirations so far and how I would apply the inspiration to my work(if that even makes sense)...

Helen Musselwhite creates these amazing pieces of art using paper. I really like the house because I could create something similar but a Hansel and Gretel version and create the house out of sweets made out of paper. I also really like the colours she uses as they just remind me of fairytales and if you can justify why you used the colours, why you did this, why you did that, you will get more marks and more marks= better grade.

I absoloutely love the colours Seiko Kato uses in this! I also like how busy it is but you still focus on everything because it's so detailed(I'm really bad at putting my analysing in words but I understand what I mean by all of this poo talk). In my project I'm thinking of an object to represent each fairy tale so for instance, the obvious one, an apple for Snow White. I could then incorporate all these objects into a collage  and create something similar to this peacock tail.

Su Blackwell is mindblowing! I'd hate to cut up a book as books are like my family, they're very special to me. However it looks every so dainty, and I like that she's used an actual Alice in Wonderland book because it all just ties in. You should google this artist if you have a few spare seconds because she really is amazing.

Lastly(I could tell you another 100 artists really but I shan't keep you), but definitely not leastly is Tim Burton. I like how he can give the most innocent of things a sinister feel. His drawing style almost reminds me of Quentin Blake's(the genius who illustrated Roal Dahl's books), not overly complicated but beautiful at the same time.

I hope you liked this post, I didn't really know what to talk about so I just thought I'd talk about what I love(art if you didn't know). Also, has anyone done/ is doing AS level biology? Omg hardest thing ever, in my opinion, I've failed all the end of unit tests which annoys me because I put so much effort into it but it just isn't working out for me, I wish I was a super genius, or I just wish I could drop it but my dad would kill me because then I wouldn't be doing anything academic. Anyway, enough with the rambles!

"Goodnight my friends" she waved.
