Central America!

I was lucky enough to have the most amazing 3 months in Central America this summer. I flew into LA to visit a friend and her husband, then flew to Mexico (Guadalajara - Mexico City - Oaxaca - San Christobel - Palenque - Tulum), Belize (Caye Caulker - amazing!!), Guatemala (Flores - Antigua - Panajachel - San Marcos - Xela), Nicaragua (Granada - Laguna de Apoyo - Ometepe - San Juan Del Sur), Costa Rica (La Fortuna - Manuel Antonio) and Panama (Isla Bastimentos - Bocas del Toro - Panama City).

SUCH a great trip, and I met some great people along the way, particularly Shelley, an Australian girl that I really hope I can travel again with. I'd love to some day fly back to Panama and pick up where I left off, catch a boat to Colombia and explore South America. That'll be quite a while away though with money and job issues looming!

Here are just a few snaps, I have more up on my flickr account.

Scary girl

So this is something I was fooling around with today,

It's supposed to be reminiscint of those old photos, framed in an oval with a broad black frame... can't think of any examples off hand, you know the ones!

A quick, non - design related post...

We had a great time at the International Womens Day celebration in the Unitarian Church. Loads of positive feedback about Ladyfest Cork, a few volunteers & a few more good ideas for the festival!

Left us all on a high & really looking forward to the festival!

Is it just my machine or do all these images look very aliased? Damn it!

Here's the flyer for International Women's day anyway, I didn't do it, just throwing it up out of interest!

Recruiting! + International Women's Day

So i'm involved in organising Ladyfest Cork 2008 (wooo!!) it's kind of taking over my life at the moment, but we'll be really proud when it's all happening (or maybe after it all happens... when we're over the stress!) It's coming together really quickly, but there's still a scary amount to do!

We'll be at the Unitarian Church this Saturday as part of an International Women's day celebration, a day of fun things! We're going to be having a cd make n' do (as inspired by Magical Girl!), giving people information on Ladyfest Cork & pushing for volunteers for the festival.

Here's a poster I did for it anyway. I think the arm is a bit wonky in it, there's something a bit awkward about her pose, I like the rest though

Should be a fun day, i'm there from 1 - 5, i'll be doing a vox pop on feminism for Deirdre, to use in a radio show with Cillian on Wednesday night (eek!) as well as wandering around looking at the other stalls, hopefully getting to go to some of the workshops & meeting loads of interesting women who are into their own activism. Yay!
