i am so young and little
i pitched in my idea for the major project and my tutor laughed at my explaining my obsession with forests and woodland creatures and after i finished making a girly fool of myself for a full twenty minutes he gave a paternal smile and said the idea sounded exciting.
he even asked about the 'little fellow' on my sketchbook (aka the grey julian) and said i should do more painting and see where that leads me.
i am now feeling good about things again.
(he also mentioned that my minor project had had a lot of potential but what marred it was that is was rushed towards the end. so there was nothing wrong with the illustrations per se. phew.)
in other news a woman with a dirty face lowered her car window and asked me if i wanted a lift.
i said no, i am alright, thank you.
