I can’t remember the last time I wrote a blog post!
It’s all changed and I don’t even know where the dashboard has gone. It’s not at all how I remember it.
I’ve been spending all my time on Instagram. How great is Instagram? It is so much fun. Except for when it went and crashed for like an hour yesterday afternoon, right after I finished work. I tried to refresh my page, and nothing. I was like what? What is life? I can’t see if anyone has liked anything! I can’t see new posts! What if I miss something! And then I thought what if just all of a sudden their was no internet connection. Like if the internet just didn’t work. Would I even exist? Would anyone else exist?
Is your life recorded anywhere else other than online? You know because there is FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter (which was working thankfully), and then Email, Snapchat, Imessage, and more, where we document our daily existence. How would you keep in touch with the rest of the world if there was no internet. How can I share my drawing with everyone if Instagram doesn’t work?
Some people who thought they were funny on twitter were like, read a book, eat without taking a photo, smell real roses. I thought that was lame. Because we can do those things, it’s just more fun when you can share them with your friends, (all your friends.) Could you imagine life pre-internet. How different.
Here’s a burger I drew and posted on IG yesterday. It’s from 8Bit in Footscray. They make great burgers.
I watched the film clip to Otis about three days ago and have decided to draw as many of the scenes as I can. I will be posting them here on my blog and also on instagram. I hope you enjoy them!

It makes it esier, easier to bear
Have you been to the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition at the NGV? It’s on until February next year, you have plenty of time, but don’t miss out. And you probably have to go more than once, just so you can take it all in.
Above is a collage I made of a few illustrations I drew from the exhibition.
Looking through these photos I noticed I’ve been reading a lot more lately. Almost all the photos are of books, or things I have found in books. Yay for books, they fill me with life and inspirations. Anyone been reading anything interesting lately?
I founds a delicious recipe for this Pomegranate-Banana Lassi. I can’t wait to make it!
Another shot from a page in the book ‘Around Australia with Jacky Winter’. Such clever typography.
This is a page from the newest Post Secret book.
My friend Joel was reading this and said it is quite great.
A little melfie after work on Sunday
This is the jacket I made today, using that fabric I’ve spoken about it previous posts. Didn’t actually turn out too bad.
My lovely brother left this for me, such a thoughtful boy!
This here is another piece of my collection, it’s like a tunic/top/dress thing. It’s menswear.
Is it just me or are the weeks flying by. I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year. How are all your new years resolutions going? I totally failed mine. Haha, oops. Oh well, I suppose I can try again next year.
Here’s foto friday!
The sky and moon was doing some crazy shit one night and I totally forgot I took this awesome photo
The weekend past was so lovely and sunny. I took this while sitting outside in the Bourke Street Mall on my lunch break
We shot a mini doco at New Model Beauty Queen and this is me hiding behind one of their skull screens. So cool.
This wall of threads is also from New Model Beauty Queen. It’s just like a rainbow only it’s threads.
My dads famous garlic barbecued fish. So yum!
Sharing this doughboys passionfruit and chocolate doughnut at uni today
I started cutting my jacket today. I’m not as stressed about it anymore. The jacket will still look nice, would have looked nicer in black, but it still looks nice. I just need to finish it on time!
Hello! Learnt how to make animations today. WOW. I have been wanting to learn for a really long time. I can already tell I’m going to have so much fun making them.
Here is my first one!
Hello. It’s not Friday I know but I want to bring back Foto Friday to my blog. (Here are the ones I meant to post on Friday.) It’s a little bit trickier these days because I usually post most of my photos on Instagram. My idea is to post different ones here, ones that wont be on Instagram. I realised I don’t take as many photos these days as I used to, hopefully this will change!
At Pellegrini’s with my friend. I think he had the ravioli and we both had the yummy watermelon granita.
My friends being antisocial. Haha, not really but it looks like it. We were about to go to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition, I think.
This here is a toile of one of the pieces in my collection. It’s just to test the pattern, so the final will be in different colours and fabric.
This is a mini Jean Paul Gaultier from the exhibition at the NGV
I saw this book at the bookstore and I really want it
Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows how much I love neons. This one is obviously at the NGV from the exhibition.
I’ve been making these a lot lately. Flat bread with chicken, mayo, lettuce and tomato. Simple but so satisfying.
I visited New Model Beauty Queen studio with my friends for our uni assignment. We’re making a documentary on them. These are some of there screen prints
Some lunch at home with my parents. My mum made this, in Albanian we call it ‘pita’. It’s yummy, but so many calories.
