Spring is finally here and it feels like summer. Picnics in the park and late-night walks through the city. Lovely. Tomorrow I'm going to Spain for a week because my mum turned 50. Instead of packing my things like I should, I custimized a bag with Florence and the Machine lyrics. Pictures below. And you can see my new (way too expensive but oh-so-pretty) blazer.

I think I'm going to do more of these bags, because I like doing it and it helps me practice my not-computer skills.
If you happen to want one (with a design of your choice) , just let me know and I can send it to you and then you can send me something nice back (anything will do, just a simple card with some sweet words will make me happy).

Love, Bobby

Some good news. I've been applying to Art Academy (Gerrit Rietveld in Amsterdam) and Design Academy (in Eindhoven) this week, and the weeks before that I've worked hard on the assignments I had to make and my portfolio. I haven't heard anything of Art Academy yet, but they accepted me at the Design Academy! I'm awfully happy because it's such an amazing academy and I think I'll fit there perfectly. This will mean that I'll have to move to Eindhoven.. But well, it's only for 3 years and then I might be able to do my master in London or New York (!).
Well I wanted to show you my assignment for Design Academy. I had to make a 'life size mobile' (not the phone), and it had to be in relation to your own body. I made some lists and came up with a few things:

- The body has round, long and angular shapes
- The body has the number 1, 2, 5 and 10
- The body is always in balance but can move around
- There are three types of joints in the body
- My mind is more complicated than my heart

I tried to get these all into my design. The biggest box is my heart and it has a heartbeat coming out of the speaker. The other boxes are my mind and the biggest of those has the sound of people talking coming out of the speaker.

I'm actually really proud of this, because I think for the first time making a real 3D piece, this is quite good.

OH and I'm going to try to make the MiuMiu collar with the naked woman! I'm so excited. I hope it'll work out the way I want it too and then I'll show you pictures.
