I have created a couple of layouts using the visual experiments i did first for the Chekhov brief here they are below, It is just a start i hope to do plenty more examples but i am still unsure as to what i will produce for an end product!

Ive been doing a few more experiments and visuals using stick and ink in my sketchbook here are some of my favorite results, im making some progress but feel i need to put a few days solid in working to produce a lot more sketches, I also want to take a more graphic approach in generating other images which can also represent the story.

I have started to break down some of the sketches by cropping them and printing them out again then scanning back in on the mac i really like these as it has began to pick up on textures within the images. More upside down images not to sure why this keeps happening today must have gremlins!
I have decided to work on the Chekhov brief using his short story 'DREAMS' as inspiration, As usual i had to get the crap out in order to start reveling something good, I gave myself a couple of minutes to produce rough sketches of parts of the story i could visualize at this stage, here are some of the results.
(hmmm for some reason my last 3 images are upside down will try and sort this out tomorrow!)

Tomorrow Stacie is setting up a Valentines day stall in the union and for my donation i was busily baking and creating (a mess), I decided to make love heart and rose shaped cakes it took many attempts using the stupid silicone moulds and i only liked the heart shaped cakes so i made vanilla and coconut ones which i then decorated with icing and edible glitter i think they look scrumptious, I also made (for the first time ever) some Bathbombs scented with winter berries they turned out lovely to and smell good enough to eat, I made small tags and packaged them in cellophane, I think they look very attractive so hopefully people will buy them tomorrow and put some cash in the degree fund. I did take some photos on my phone but there not very good but you get the idea as to what they looked like.

Well i have finally decided on a name to use work wise, As i have a famous name it is quite hard for me to find a domain name, So a few months ago i decided to choose an alternative name to use, I wanted something catchy and intriguing something people would remember, I have now decided for definite that the name i will use is........
Why you may ask?
Well i am hoping that my work will excite people in the way cats get excited by catnip!
I have bought a domain name CATNIPcreative.org.uk as just CATNIP was unavailable on its own, I am hoping over the next few days/weeks to put together an identity and design some business cards, I do have the idea of hand-making paper where i will be recycling paper which i have used in my research through uni to which i will add catnip i will then print my details onto it using either letterpress or silk screening, I would also like to set up a blog using this identity.
