so i’m on tumblr while my five-year-old brother sits on my desk and practices writing letters. and there was an illustration of Where The Wild Things Are and as i scroll right past it he goes, “WAIT CHRISTEL, CHRISTEL GO BACK! GO BACK CHRISTEL.” so i go back to the picture and i say, “this?” and he goes, “YEAH CHRISTEL. I WAS READING THAT BOOK AT MY SCHOOL, CHRISTEL. I WAS READING THAT BOOK AT MY SCHOOL. WITH THE WILD THINGS.” and i was like, “…really?!” and he goes into this lengthy summary like,
“YEAH CHRISTEL. THE BOY, THE BOY HE WAS WEARING A COSTUME. AND HE WAS BEING BAD. AND HIS MOMMY PUT HIM IN TIME OUT. YEAH, CHRISTEL. SO HE GOES TO TIME OUT IN HIS ROOM, AND HE GOES AWAY ON A BOAT. CHRISTEL, THE BOY GOES AWAY ON A BOAT. AND HE GOES AND THERE ARE THE MONSTERS. THE WILD THINGS, CHRISTEL. AND THEY PLAY, CHRISTEL. CHRISTEL THEY PLAY. AND HE GETS SAD. THE BOY GETS SAD, CHRISTEL. SO HE GOES BACK ON THE BOAT AND HE GOES HOME. AND WHEN HE GOES HOME HE HAS SOUP! CHRISTEL, THE BOY HAS SOUP! THE SOUP WAS IN HIS ROOM. I LIKE THAT BOOK, CHRISTEL. I LIKE THAT BOOK.”
then gives me like the biggest hug ever and asks me to help him write some more.
This was SO FUNNY and is exactly how 5 year olds are. Cracked me up.

my newest brief is simply to come up with some sort of design based project (eg a narrative, a series of prints etc) based on saffron.I’m googling it soon an i’ve been reading but i wondered if any of you had any interesting recipies or stories involving saffron as i can take this project in any direction. Grrr very open briefs-welcome to 2nd year.
