Written for dVerse form for all prompt to write a cinquain. This gave me an opportunity to write about one of my favourite musicians, Amanda Palmer. She started out as a living statue, often as 'The eight-foot bride'. After listening to her recent inspiring TED talk (link here) about the 'art of asking' I wanted to get across the true connection she had with strangers. She still makes this connection by making her fans feel loved, appreciated and heard. I found it really difficult to put this concept into 22 syllables... There were many attempts. If you think it's easy have a go!
Hello lovely people, know it's been ages since I posted. I thought I'd share a painting with you which I did just for fun and to relax. It's of a photograph that my dad took of St Ninian's Isle in Shetland. When he showed me the photo my first thought was "I HAVE to paint that" - so I did and here it is.
Today my friend, Louise Hubbard and I finished an animation we have been working on for two weeks. It is for a YCN competition to advertise Triumphs' bra fitting service. I really enjoyed working with Louise and her illustrative style - thank you.
We decided to take the idea of women wearing the wrong size bra and turn it on its head. Which means instead of depicting women, we used bras as characters who wear the wrong size women. We adjusted Triumph bras’ tag line from, “7 out of 10 women wear the wrong size bra - are you one of them?” to “7 out of 10 bras wear the wrong size woman - are you one of them?”. This transfers the blame from the woman to the bra and also provides a source of amusement. The aim of which is to encourage women to get a bra fitting.
