The Music of Microorganisms ...

I've been thinking a lot about bacteria (and other microorganisms)...





And I've been thinking a lot about jazz (specifically swing)...








And have tried to bring the two together ...


But very unsuccessfully I feel ...


So I went to the tutors with all the work I had done, and asked them "How do I make sense of this?", and they, with their much well trained eyes said, "Well, what about doing this?". It was there right before my eyes, but I couldn't see. I just needed someone who could step back from it all and tell me how it could all work together.

Have a lot of work to do over the Christmas holidays - 12 pieces of work; the thought of which kept me stressfully awake all of last night! Hope I can make this come together well ...

yes, coz I've not even started on it yet!

But had a good chat with the tutors and at least now I have a plan for the project...

If you want that Swedish jazzy music, just poke me with a stick. :) A memory-stick that is.

Love, love, love your sketches Mithi! This whole journey of yours is so inspiring, it sometimes prompt me to try and follow along though I don't get my work criticised by tutors. Which is always the best part!! :)
