|Introduction||I am very lucky that I do something everyday which inspires me and that no one else can do. I'm Charlotte, or Coop as I am more commonly known. I've just graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Illustration. Its satisfying to know that no one else can do what I do. Lots of people can draw and be creative and be ten times better than me, but no one can draw exactly like me or create exactly like me, and nor can i draw or create like anyone else. Sometimes when I'm having a bad day I remind myself that what i do is unique, and not one person can repeat its exactly. And for that I am thankful. I like to experiment and try new things, whether thats in the studio or in life. I like traveling and exploring new places and finding the anomolies in life that stand out and don't fit in. I love laughing and smiling, it influences everything I do, and I can't see that being a bad thing.|
|Interests||Illustration, Working hard, Doodling, Sewing, Knitting, Crochering, Dreaming up brilliant ideas that I only wish I had the means to execute, Writing on Post-it notes, Eating cake, Consuming copious amounts of tea and custard cream biscuits, Singing too loud to the radio, Dancing like no one is watching, Collecting Tea pots.|
|Favorite Music||Songs that remind me of happy times. This can either be one extreme or an another. For example one day I might be rocking out to some Metallica, the next chilling out to Death Cab and the next singing loudly to Girls Aloud.|
|Favorite Books||To Kill a Mocking Bird, Regeneration, Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Anything Dickens, LOTR, HP, The Highest Tide, The art of Falling, All Quiet on the Orient Express, The Lovely Bones, The Time Traveler's Wife, The Burying Beetle, The First Casualty, Shakespeare, Wilfred Owen, Phillip Larkin, 1984, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies.|
If someone said there was 20 trillion stars in the sky you would believe them, but why if something says wet paint, we have to touch it to make sure?
