Finally got iOS 8! I love it. I mean I barely have to type now with the word prediction — what is there not to love!

This is something I made a few months ago now, whilst procrastinating and avoiding other projects. I guess it’s a combination of my Iliad project, and another piece I was working on - The Text Gazes Back (of which there are photos on my website: www.theclassicist.co.uk).
It’s the emotional states of characters throughout book one, represented by emoticons. Every row represents a different scene.
Our #laborday weekend: board games - Bookopoly, Narnia Stratego, & Lego HP (I am not an HP fan, but the game is fun). Our extra Legos: Marian the Liberian and Bilbo!

Step Inside London’s Felt Cornershop
Look closely at a corner shop in East London and you’ll see everything is not as it seems. The Cornershop, opened in a derelict store in Bethnal Green by artist Lucy Sparrow (@sewyoursoul), is actually an art installation which consists of 4,000 items all handmade from felt! From Heinz Baked Beans to Digestive Biscuits, everything in the shop is hand-stitched and the whole shop took Lucy eight months to assemble.
“I wanted to create something that surrounded people completely,” says Lucy, whose first job was in her local corner shop. “I hope this project reminds people just how much the cornershop cements life in local communities.” The installation runs until August 31.
Have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day!
