Art is lyfee

Hey guyssss! So school is going okay at the moment I guess. I just want to fast forward this year tbh and go to college so I can focus more of my energy on art and not subjects like German and maths. In recent news, I have decided to get a tennis skirt from american apparel as I cannot resist the temptation any longer! It will probably mean I am completely skint for ages but YOLO, you have to make a few sacrifices in life.
I have also recently got into the band, Japan. They are kind of weird but I like all the sci-fi sound effects and Japanese instruments they use in their tracks, especially in these two: 1 , 2

Anyway, um, yeah. I just wanted to post some more of my recent art on here. Our initial starting point was portraits and from that I decided to focus on emphasising the natural colours in peoples' faces. I hope you guys are finding school okay and I was wondering if you could recommend me any artists that link to my work?

I told you I was gonna lose you to the blue

So i started year 11 a few days ago and i'm feeling fairly positive about it all, although i feel a bit crappy today. i hate september as there are always lots of big changes and going back to school gives me tons of headaches. Summer didn't really live up to the expectation but it never really does. However, i did manage to: finish season three of the killing and both seasons of the bridge, go camping twice, add to my cacti collection, make lots of art, discover more good music, get a really comfy pair of trainers, stay away from the internet and meet with friends (although not as much as i would have liked!). I bought a couple of disposable cameras and here are a bunch of the photos i got developed on one of them.

So as i was saying, I've discovered lots of music//artists in the holiday that i am now in love with. My favourite band of all time *~ alt-j ~* is releasing a new album this month which I AM SO EXCITED FOR, I CANNOT STRESS IT ENOUGH. Here is one my favourite tracks they've released so far:Another one of my favourite songs at the moment is hollow talk by choir of young believers. It's the theme song for the bridge which makes it like a trillion times more beautiful.
I also discovered the amazingly talented Danish singer, Mø. She kinda sounds like a mixture of lana del rey, lorde and grimes but which her own unique sound added in. i have wayyy too many favourites of hers so here are just a few:
