I'm not questioning your powers of observation I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

I have some ideas for an art project I have to do for September (Yes, yes - September. I have lots of time, I wish to get on with it.) Basically work to do for the subject we're doing for A-level to make sure we're ready.

Anyway, for art - I have to do a project either based around the subject of Still Life or The Environment. I haven't decided which yet - but I've seen this graphic novel cover I like... Which inspires me somewhat:



But like I said, I'm not sure. This also "inspires" me somewhat:



Even if it's nothing to do with either subject.

For film studies I've managed to get hold of Nosferatu (Silent, German film from 1922). Which means I have all four films I have to watch and write about. Which is a relief, somewhat.

Fact of the Day:

The first recorded case of a man giving up smoking was on April 5, 1679. Johan Katsu, Sheriff of Turku - Finland, wrote in his diary "I quit smoking tobacco."
He died a month later.

Always wanted to watch Nosferatu but I don't think I ever got round to it. If I did, I've forgotten!

If you found Baltic inspiring, you could always explore its website and its archive.
