The sundance kid...

i'm sure most of you will have heard of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?! Its a brilliant western film. Well today it has inspired me in a few personal projects. I have always had an interest in the American West, ever since my school days sitting in history, listening to Mrs Holeness (my brilliant History teacher) go into great detail about what it was like to travel miles upon miles, with all your worldly possessions stacked into your wagon. With just the hope of a better life in the West. 

This in turn would send me into a day dream imagining i was a Native American watching all of these strange people entering my territory. I have kept this same exciting/mysterious view of the Native American culture. Hence my new project..... I am doing Cow boy & Indian illustrations, which hopefully i can get printed on to my own fabric and eventually make beautiful accessories for home and wear.

this is by no means a small project, and, it may well take the rest of this year.....It will be soooo worth it though!

keep an ear and an eye open
