everything has been extreme this week; extreme Eistedffod for my kids (wow, this was like cirque de soleil, all these amazingly talented kids), extreme weather (we’ve been told to stay indoors and expect 100km’s gale force winds and rain) extreme blackouts…they always happen just as you go to make dinner and as it’s getting really cold. We’ve just had power come back on.
today was spent drawing up tee, hoodie and sweat designs for a winter 08 range for Apres Velo. Yesterday was spent correcting all my incorrect French, merde! Yep, apparently it matters, so i had to paint over type and get my mother-in-law to translate what i was trying to say and then repaint it all into awkward spacing, double-merde! and then poor husband had to re-photograph in this dreary grey light we’re getting at the moment. He’s trying to colour match all the artwork in photoshop….could do with help from all the PS wizzes at red bubble, we’re complete amateurs. anyhow, when it’s all done i can download some of the vintage designs that i’ve been doing and hopefully any Francophiles out there won’t be horribly upset by my incorrect French. Now, i just thought it was terribly funny!
This afternoon sketched up next Cuban car, so that’ll be underway tomorrow.
