twEATs: Greek Kolokythokeftedes

Here's my recipe for 'Greek Kolokythokeftedes' for the twEATS opportunity on Central Station.
I tried them out the other night with homemade tzatziki and they were yummy. I'm really into Greek food of late, going to try me hand at making moussaka and souvlaki and pitta breads next.

Illustration Friday: Double

This was one of those drawings that just flows out and you don't know where or why it came. Thoughts of siamese twins came to mind but they turned into aliens (with butterfly minds!) in a balloon carrying a double version of themselves. I wonder what it all means? or anything for that matter.

Doodlezine 4: Imaginary Worlds

Here's my newly discovered planet for Doodlezine 4, the theme was Imaginary worlds. I thought I'd keep it simple and just discover a new planet, it's name is Zegbadon 4 and is populated by the Zegbays! You can buy the zine here.

Map Where I Belong

This is my map for the Make Maps project, by adam hayes, where you have to create a map where you belong. I found it quite difficult to come up with because a lot of the time I feel as if I'm on the outside of everything, just being swept along and I belong nowhere, but then again maybe I belong everywhere, maybe wherever I am, I belong. So this map shows all the countries I've ever been too filled in with dots (I love dots and circles and maps!) and small images of memories and experiences of those places. Where do you belong? Go take part!

To Kill a Mockingbird at 50

This year is the 50th anniversary of 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee. I watched the great BBC Documentary 'To Kill a Mockingbird at 50' and just had to dig out my old well-thumbed copy, complete with school notes to re-read. I first read it in school in Manila, Philippines loved it, then I studied it again when I was back in England and still loved it, and have carried on reading it. It's one of those books that's timeless and you can constantly go back to and get something else from it. I decided to do this poster in homage to it, think I might have to turn it into a t-shirt or bag, what do you think? Happy Birthday & Thank you Harper Lee!:)

{UPDATE: Here's the colour t-shirt it turned into & a black and white version}

What I've seen while out walking

Here's what I've seen while out walking lately: A natural Richard Long-esque Line in the grass, a secret path, inquisitive horses, running goats, a sheep barring my way, a beautiful, derelict wall, and great green views. Also seen swallows swooping low and high, a guinea pig making friends with chickens, a storm brewing, fields full of freedom and a hiding white cat.

Death is not Justice poster

'Capital punishment breaches the universal declaration of human rights. it's that simple.'
There's a call for poster entries over at Poster for Tomorrow for posters raising awareness about the death penalty is a violation of human rights, has no place in modern society and that death is not justice, NEVER! This is one of my ideas, you're allowed up to 10 and the best 100 designs will be exhibited in 10 locations around the world on 10/10/10 (the world day against the death penalty) and then collected into a book.

Update: Outline Maps of My Life

My 'Outline Maps of My Life' drawing has been featured on the Hand Drawn Map Association website, mine's no. 243. The site features any map which has been hand-drawn, whether it's scribble of a map on a napkin, a fictional fantastical map or a map showing where you need to trim the hedges. There's some great maps and a few of my faves are: Sergei Sedo's fictional maps in progress, Scott's sea map, Anonymous' map which helped them cross the pirate infested waters of Sulu and Celebes. But it's the stories that help the maps come into existence which are the real treat.

Song Illustration: Everyday by Vetiver

Number 3 in my Song Illustration series: Everday by Vetiver. Just a quick sketch this one, I like the face in the mirror, may have to expand that idea, can see it being a little book or zine somehow. Anyways heres the lyrics and images:
Ear, Mouth, Voice, Eye, Face in mirror: 'All I want to hear is your voice, have your face to see'
Postive/Negative & Crossed out Genie: 'I always seem to make something out of nothing,
but I can't make you appear'
Guitar: 'While I'm away just know I play this song for you, and wait, wait for me now'
2 people: 'Lying just next to me how happy we'd both be'
Plus an everyday calendar and some Vetiver grass.
