I saw a friend of mine today, and during our conversations, the topic moved on to drawing and sketching. It is a topic that comes up quite a lot in our conversations, and we’re often suggesting inspiring artists to follow on Instagram to each other and sending each other sketches.

Today she had asked me if she could check out my sketchbooks, so I found the two sketchbooks I had and we started flicking through the pages.

One of the main reasons I got the 550D is to start making films with the camera. Above is a beautifully shot short film made in Iceland using a 550D by Klara Harden. Watching it has given me a few ideas on shooting documentary style shorts, and documentary creation is a direction I want to head in.

I have got myself the camera I have wanted for a while now, the Canon 550D.

This is a camera I have wanted for a long time and now I have it, expect a lot more pictures, and the start of my own videos, to appear on the blog

There’s something unique about analogue. When everything is now so digital and connected, and technology is so accessible, we sometimes forget what it used to be like.

Here’s the finished product of a design idea I had the other day, created in Illustrator. Stay tuned for an updated post where I talk about my inspiration and process for creating this piece.

One thing I have always believed in is new stationary makes you creative. It’s something I’ve been more sure of than anything else in the world. From the beginning of my life, and particularly in my teens, the solution to not drawing or designing enough was to go out and buy a new sketchbook or notebook and maybe some new pens or pencils, with the hope that one look at the blank pages of this fresh new sketchbook would inspire me to fill its pages with all the ideas I had floating in my head. But that’s where things just didn’t work out.

Hello!

This is the start of The Astronaut Blog. I have been meaning to start a blog for quite a while now, so I have tied it in with the start of the year.
