My Artwork
 
 
Hey guy's I wanted to do a post about some of my hobbies and I thought sharing my artwork with you would be a great idea.
 
I started drawing when I was about 17-18 years old and from then I just loved drawing. My brother Adam used to always draw different cartoon characters when he was young and I used to love watching him so I thought I would start drawing, I'm not going to lie it took me a good few try's to get where I am now.
 
The images above were my very first drawing I did that I was happy with, I also made these drawings into pottery which was great fun; took a good few lesson to get it the same as the drawing on a page but I got there. The second drawing was my first with shading technique and it turned out really well, this one is my mum's favourite out of all the ones I've done now.
 
 
 As the years went on I started drawing more and more I used to go to college then as soon as I came home I just started drawing, Id come home with these ideas in my head of what exactly I wanted to draw. Above are examples of a few of my ideas I drew free hand.
 
It came to point where my friends wanted drawing of themselves doing.
(My friend Jenna)
 
I draw from time to time now when I have spare time, But drawing is one of my main hobbies that I love doing. To me anyone can draw with a bit of practice most of my friends always say to me "How can you draw like that" But anyone can just takes time and patience with a good creative mind.
My favourite things I love drawing the most,
 
Animals
Anime Character's
Car's
Chibi's
Self portraits
 
My sister always tells me to send off my drawing's to different magazine companies to see if I can get a job in the lines of drawing but I've never been sure. Maybe I will someday and see where it takes me in the future. would love to be an artist for a children's book or magazine or even for a cartoon show or computer game, I think that would be an amazing opportunity to be in.
 
I've done many other drawings over the years that I have too many to even show you all on one post anyways so I've taken my favourite one to show you.
 
 


 Hope you enjoyed reading guy's
If you have any request you would like me to draw then please comment below
 
Much Love

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so that you can learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together
 
- Marilyn Monroe
 
 
This quote is amazing to me to me this it all true I find it hard to trust people so that why I trust myself, And I believe everything happened for a reason even thought it can be upsetting for yourself you may feel broken but everything dose happen for a reason. But i also believe good things happen for a reason as well.

Mouse Hunt Review - 18th August 2015
 
Actor's - Nathan Lane & Lee Evans
Director - Gore Verbinski
 
Yesterday I watched Mouse Hunt for the first time; how I've never seen this film is beyond me.
 
This film was made in 1997 and the story line is about two brothers named Lars and Ernie who's father passes away and leave them his outdated string factory and a run-down mansion. When Lars refuses to sell the string factory his wife April then threw him out with no where to go.  Meanwhile, Ernie serves Mayor McKrinkle in his restaurant, However the mayor became poisoned by a cockroach which made Ernie's restaurants become closed down and he no longer has no where to live too.
 As a result the two brothers have no choice but to move into the old mansion that there father left them. Once they get settled in there new home they find soon out that they have a visitor who also lives there. When they found out its a mouse they try everything in there power to get rid of him but everything they seem to try never work and they get the brunt of it all. Once they find out that the house it worth a lot of money and that many people are interested in buying it from them they started to rebuild the house but with there little room mate it makes it more work then it should be. Once it comes to auction day of the house they think that the mouse has been sorted but once he turns up at the auction with a little plan everything goes down hill and that house then floods leaving nothing left at all.
 
When both brothers spend a night in string factory with only a single chunk of cheese for food. The mouse, having followed the brothers, restarts and feeds the cheese into the machinery to make a ball of string cheese. Which inspires Ernie and Lars to open up a cheese factory.
 
I thought this film was a great film to watch which had everything you need; comedy and sadness. I would highly recommend this film to anymore young and old. This would be a perfect family film, even a date night or just for yourself. The story line is great easy to understand and to follow. Having Lee Evans in this film as well was also great because he is one of favourite comedians and seeing him in this film was strange at first because I've only seen him as a stand up comedian on stage but he definitely made this film what it is.
So I give this film 5 stars!
 
If you have also seen this film or haven't seen it but now have after reading this then please leave your comments below.

Pain & Gain Review - 15th August 2015
 
Actor's - Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson &  Anthony Mackie.
Directed - by Michael Bay.
 
So I've watched Pain & Gain tonight because it stars two of my favourites actor's at the moment.
 
This film is based on at true story about three bodybuilders who want to become rich by taking everything that  Victor Kershaw has. The three team up and plan a kidnap scheme on Victor and torture him into signing over everything he owns to them. Once they revive the money they buy everything they want and try to lay low. 
Once their money quickly runs out they chose to take money off another but this plan then back fires rapidly and soon their wrong doing catches up with them in a twist of comedy moments.
 
What I thought to this film was its quite hard to understand at the very start as it appears to be everywhere trying to find its story. But to me it is a good film to watch if you like the actors involved and genre of film. I found some part that were very funny and some parts that were quite grim to watch also but overall a good film. I would watch this again and I recommend this film to anyone who love actions films its definitely a boys films but I know there are many girls out there who would watch it as well.
 
So if any of you have seen this film please feel free to leave your comment below on how you feel about the film what you like and don't like about it.
 
Much Love

Little Awkward Fox
Interview with the amazing Imogen
 
 1. What got you into blogging?
 I have always been into blogging. When I was about eleven I remember having my own blog on blog spot or something that was entirely dedicated to guys that I think are hot. Amazing. Really awful, but in any case I'm definitely a blogger at heart.

2. How long have you been blogging for?
My current blog has been up for a few years now, but I only started getting stuck in a few months ago. I took a year break in which I posted very little to nothing. I decided I needed some time to really understand what I wanted to blog about! Now I'm back and happy with my little blog. Though it's in desperate need of a makeover - can't sort this out until I replace my dead laptop!

3. What sort of topic's do you like to cover?
I love to write lifestyle content! My favourite series that I do is my "it's ok... Maybe." Posts! They're basically lists of things that everyone does that are a bit weird or funny! I love writing funny blog posts the most!

4. Do you have any favourite blogger's at the moment?
I will always love Essie Button. She is my favourite blogger ever. 

5. What you best post so far?
My best post would definitely be one of the it's ok maybe posts. They always seem to go down well with readers as well as hopefully making a few of them smile :)

6. What do you think are the positives and negatives of blogging?
The positive side of blogging is definitely the fantastic community! I've met so many lovely friends through blogging from all over the world, it's a fantastic way to learn about other cultures! For me there are no negatives, blogging is great!

7. Other then blogging what else do you like to do?
I love a good Netflix and pizza night. I like to watch comedies and play video games :)

8. Do you find blogging relaxes you?
Yes, definitely! I only write when I want to and what I want to so when I do it's really relaxing.

9. If there was only one thing you could do if life what would it be and why?
Oh gosh.. Ummm.. Probably have a lovely family of my own! I know it's cheesy, but if I could only do one thing I think it would have to be this!

10. If you was trap on island and could only take three thing what would they be and why?
A knife, matches aaaaand my glasses (I can't see without my glasses haha)

14th August 2015 - My first blog post.

14th August 2015 - My first blog post.

My First Blog Post
Hello my blogger fan's this is my very first blog post for my site. Thank you for reading and hope enjoy.
 
I've been spending the past 2 weeks now writing notes for my blog on what I want to write about and what will keep people interested in reading each week. So did my research first and thought I would give it a go. From what I have planned so far I'm quite happy with what I want my blog to be about.
 
But I thought for my first blog I would write about what I have been up to the past weekend and week as this will be about my lifestyle.
 
My weekend started on Friday, I had my sister come and pick me up for the weekend. we went Into town for a few hours first where I got my self a new outfit from new look which I love so much and really does give me a new look. We grab lunch in town and head off for more shopping to hunt for our supermarket bought dinner to finish our girly day out and dear lord must of been in there for an hour and half maybe, I've never known my sister take so long to do food shopping in my whole life. When we finally got back to my mums house which was coming up to 7pm we chose to watch a film, so her partner put on the DVD hangover which I haven't seen in quite while so I really enjoyed that. The film involves characters such as Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifiankis who travel to Las Vegas for a Batchelor party which gets so out of control they lose their memory and friend. The film is based around trying to find out what happened last night and eventually where their friend is in the never sleep city.
 
I went to my first steam rally of the year on the Saturday and I really enjoyed it spending time with my family [my mum, step dad and my uncle and my steam rally friends]. My uncle let me drive his steam engine around the site for the first go whilst my step dad looked upon as im still learning but I did pretty well if I have to say no crashes or anything just ended up covered in coal and sut that's all but that's apart of being a steamer you go clean but come home black! As a normal steam rally we did our pub run which is where all the steam engines and drivers get together and drive on the public road to the nearest pub we can find and spend about 3 hours there max to just come steaming back to the camp for yep you guessed it more drinks!.. Well that's what there for so I get told but there right.
 
 There are many different types of rally's each year however this one was only a small one so there wasn't as many people or engines in comparison to the much bigger ones where you have shows and funfairs to keep the crowds going. I never knew what a steam engine was until my mum met my step dad and she got us both into this new hobby and it is really fun, I urge many people to experience it at least once. He's currently building his own steam engine for us to take to rally so then we don't have borrow anyone else's and the need to ask for a ride.
(An old photo of me next to a good 8 year old steam engine)
 
That evening my sister wanted to get me a facial which involved massaging of the face with different treatments (come on you cant say no to that). It had to be the best one I've had felt so relaxed afterwards. Once fully pampered we watched a film I haven't seen before called Taken 3 even though I fell asleep half way through it! (so sleepy) however from what I saw it was a pretty good film involving Liam Neeson.
 
The Sunday was mainly a lazy Sunday like most of them and began waking up quite late, a shocking 12 o'clock late! I know bad right. Finally when I got out of bed me and sister didn't really do a lot we never do on a sunday.
 
So that was my weekend but this week I will admit its mostly just been setting up my blog planning on what I want to write about and how I want it to look like I never knew there were so many different layouts you can have just so much choice! But I finally setted on one I've also had my friend Emmie - Hope come over today to help me set up my blog with me so I would like to thank you to her for helping me.
 
Thank you for reading my very first blog post hope you enjoyed it
 
Much Love
