New books and finished Project.

Hey there Mr Blog!
It was my birthday a few days ago, so I found myself with a pretty descent sum of money.
What did I decide to do with the money? (or at least, SOME of the money.)
Buy books!!
And because Amazon is lovely, they arrived in 2 days despite the predicted delivery date being the 27th.

I got myself 4 books:
The Book of Grickle
Jon Burgerman Pens are My Friends
Art and Design of GAMA-GO (Limited Edition)

I'm going to do a write up on each of the books as I read them, starting with We3, probably followed by Grickle.

In other news, first project for University is now finished!
Handed in last Thursday (21st)

The project was on colour.
We had to design a book sleeve and a 2 page illustration to go along with some text.
I chose to base my work on Monkey, an English translation of the 500 year old Chinese novel Journey to the West.
When I get my sketchbook back in a week or so I'll scan in the drawings I did for the project and explain a bit of what I was thinking.
