a painting of the Arcade Fire, one of my favourites at the moment.
It was done in overly watery gauche - gauche being the only paint I had at the time (would have preferred watercolour, but I needed to get it done for homework).

Edit 26.01.08.. Yup, I changed it. :P There was something about the previous version that kept bordering me. I think we're over that now. This is so much stronger. IMHO..

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key
My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I'm standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It's a hollow play
But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key
Standing next to me
My mind holds the key

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key
Standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a cage

My body is a cage
We take what we're given
Just because you've forgotten
Doesn't mean you're forgiven

I'm living in an age
Still turning in the night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight

I'm living in an age
Realizing I'm dancing
With the one I love
But my mind holds the key

Standing next to me
My mind holds the key
Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free

More a cityscape than a landscape, but scenic nevertheless. This is the bridge started by Charles IV in 1357 to replace the older Judith Bridge.

The drawing was done from a photograph taken on my first trip in 94. I was there at about 8am in midwinter to get the bridge without people. The drawing took several months worth of work and lots of pencils.

I made this jacket for a contest held by Simplicity. The contest was to make a item of clothing using one of their "Threads" patterns. I picked this pattern because it reminded me of gentleman's coats from the 1700's, turned back lapels with the possiblity of lots of amazing embroidery.

I ended up doing quite alot of alterations to the pattern, exchanging the goofy (and impractical) ribbon for a simple hook and eye, changing the shape and length of the sleeves, and tailoring the jacket in general.

The jacket is made of brown worsted wool suiting that I was able to purchase on sale from Hancock fabrics (who else in their right mind would want to work with wool in the late spring?), and is lined with contrasting pistachio lining. The embroidery is done in pearl cotton in 5 colors and freshwater pearls. The stiches used are bullion knot, lazy daisy, and stem stitch.
