So this may well be the first time that my mother has sat down and read through some of my blog. If she decides to go through post by post, she’s going to be reading for quite a while. When this post is finished, it will be number 347! That, to me at least, is a lot of posts!
Oh, and don’t worry, Mum… Jenny is just pretending to be sour. She isn’t really.
That got me to thinking – what is my mother going to think? What is she going to be faced with, assuming that she has at least a brief look through all 347 posts?
Flies. She’s going to be faced with flies. And faces. And owls, and rats, and most definitely bunnies, too. There will be dandelions, daydreams, and random musings on characters which have only really ever existed in my head and on the piece of paper scanned in for that particular post. She’ll even be faced, on more than a couple of occasions, with Jenny. Honestly, I think she’s going to come to the conclusion that I am quite random indeed!
Does your mum read your blog?
Media writing: a far better subject than I was expecting it to be. Great inspiration for drawing! This is a sketch done during the lecture portion of the evening and was subsequently used as part of the tutorial… developing the characters of the story we put together last week as a short film proposal.
This… is Dean’s mum. Perhaps I’ll go into the actual story that we came up at another time, but the basics of Dean’s mum is this: she loves her son incredibly much and is the main parent in the household. Just think ofher as a matriach! She has no problem talking about the embarressing things, and isn’t shy about bringing them up if she thinks that little Dean (not so little, in reality) needs to talk about them. Not to mention that she isn’t disinclined to give examples from her own past experiences, or the experiences of his often-absent but just as loving father. She’s the kind of mother you just can’t help but love… even if she has you going ‘but muuuum’ occasionally because she has just embarressed you in front of your friends and has you brushing bright red.
Ok, there’s a bit more to her than that… but that’s the nice and easy stuff on the surface, to explain why I pulled this pic out during the tutorial to say ‘this is who she is’.
Ok… that’s all for now… Have a great day!
