I'm looking forward to Christmas more and more, in fact I think the excitement has buoyed me and got me through a an uninspired patch.

My ideas are moving on in my self designed project. I have created five self portraits (of dubious quality). It has been the first time in a long while I've picked up a brush, but it was nice to do again.
Here's the work.

I am also running with the idea of creating a fictional character based on the responses to my questionnaire. I have started writing a diary based around this fictional person who I have not named. I've been writing with my left hand and creating a fictional scenario for this person within these short diary entries. I have also included crayon drawings.
I'm building up a collection of artifacts for this person such as shopping lists, notes to his family and friends etc. I plan to continue it every day over Christmas and into the new year.

Something entirely different.

I've been messing around with Photoshop and have been using some free downloaded brush sets. I've been attempting to make some Christmas desktop wallpapers and came up with these after finding a very intriguing brush set by hernerzcke.

Take a look at these quick Warhol inspired pieces:

Just a bit of fun!

I will keep posting pictures and ideas as they develop.
If I don't post until after Christmas/New Year and I may not -
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
