Shine on you crazy diamond

This post will kill you dead after it BLOWS YOUR MIND... Whooosh and also I'm doing that hand movement that Penny Lane does in Almost Famous when she's in the bus next to William and he says "I have to go home" and she says "You are home". Please refer to 2.00 of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhInN6jR8vk only one of my all time favourite movie scenes ever, me and a million other people's.


For the past... well couple of hours I've been trawling the internet for inspiration to make the invitation for my exhibition. I decided upon something psychedelic and a little sinister. I find a lot of that stuff with big warped mushrooms and similar motifs pretty menacing or something, but I do love it. So, here are the hoards of stuff I found.




























And finally, when this intense google image journey came to an end, below is what I came up with. Looks pretty disappointing after what we just went through, but it's not too bad. I'm going to get them printed like postcards. So exciting!

  3. colours:0 SO MANY COLOURS! my eyes were blinded by this happiness for a few seconds but thankfully they adjusted to the new habitat! (i kind of just woke up..)
    anyway, so much loveliness and the card looks brill! love the contrast of the front where it's just like a "wooooshh" of colour and then the back is black & white.

  6. one of the posters here mentions creedence clearwater revival. that is an ace band that my dad and i have bonded over in fandom. they can do everything - blues, country, folk and swamp people music, rock ballads etc. their 'i heard it through the grapevine' is eleven minutes of pure joy.
