I said something nice about you all
The last few weeks have been utterly insane. So many emotions. I feel like through the average SCA day I fly and fall several times. One moment it’s literally as if I have wings and am soaring my way into greatness and solving all the world’s problems. The next, no one has replied to any emails I sent asking very politely for a book crit, it’s okay though, I’m sure my email just ended up in junk. It’s a tough time for everyone.
So here’s a nice line about everyone in the cohort. Love and light people. (Mentor/Staff version is incoming).
Aaron- Open hearted. I’d chat to him about anything. It’s not been easy this year but he’s found his stride and is now taking mighty gallops forward everyday.
Alex- Detailed perfectionist, looks very good in stripes.
Alfie- I have never been so fond of someone who winds me up. Earlier this year I had an Alfie ‘boundary’ whenever he came and sat next to me that I wouldn’t let him cross. Loves his friends.
Alice- Pulls off a myriad of crazy prints and colours that just shouldn’t go together.
Andy- Kind and always manages to put things into words so eloquently. I’d never get in beef with people if I could articulate myself like Andy does.
Bastien- Puts all English boys to shame. The French really showed you guys up this year, exceptional politness. Famous for his seductive wink.
Carly- MEGA babe. Also low key a sneaky savage. She is this Hillary to my Bill.
Charlie- One positive penguin always uplifting others and giving time and ideas generously.
Chloe- Not a low key savage. A high key one and I rate that 10/10.
Chris- I am so in awe of Chris. Works his nut off and always super kind to others and helps me out with adobe.
Deano- The best kind of bat shit crazy. The world needs more Deano’s. Think different personified.
DJ- Keeps it real. Also super talented at shit outside of advertising which makes him ten times cooler.
Elisa- The hardest worker I’ve ever known, she also comes armed with bag fulls of talent and is the sweetest soul.
Elle- My OG. I respect her not taking any shit from me greatly.
Ellie- an excellent secret Santa present giver, halfway through my bath salts now. Also calm but dark, there’s no way Elisa came up with that fucked up BBQ shit on her own
Eva- My Dutch fairy. Adopt me Eva adopt me and make me banana bread. Eva will one day change the world.
Holly- Thank you for picking up the phone to me every single time. My favourite person to have a laugh with.
Issy- I appreciate your enthusiasm for my cat so much. There’s no one else I can talk about Frankie for hours with. She misses you too.
Ivan- Pop ICON. Also incredible art director, my D and AD would have never happened if Ivan hadn’t stepped in to help me (help is a loose word, he basically did the entire thing).
Jay- Beautiful stylised drawings- If there was one skill I’d want to nab from someone, this would be it. So uniquely his as well.
Katie- From behind the whimsical lurks a dark mind. She’s attracted to dogs. She’s also got similar stomach issues and I feel at peace talking about them with her. Liberating.
Lawrence- Much needed calm. With all the bells and whistles of the SCA those calm gentle souls really hold the whole thing together. Also like Jay, gorgeous illustration style.
Marley- Damn girl can write. Tell me stories and tuck me in bed please.
Munraj- Takes really good pictures of his girlfriend which make me jealous and bitter towards my own boyfriend. Also fun to work with, very quick mind.
Oli- One day I will start World War Three with you. We won’t touch Afghanistan though.
Phil- Beautiful booming voice, if this whole ad thing doesn’t work out, voice acting is his way forward.
Pierre- Bonkers in the best way. Can’t wait to see you win D and AD.
Rachael- Also loves my cat which gains anyone brownie points with me. Multilingual and cooler then I’ll ever be.
Rolly- A go getter. Didn’t find her partner in this room so found one elsewhere and nailed it.
Sam- We exchange political views on slack. Such fun. Also gave me a new found love and appreciation for pebbles.
Scarlet- Sadly, nothing Scarlet ever does will beat her roast potatoes. I dream of them. She’s won at life.
Sean- Remember when he dropped that poem in reflections? JAW DROPPED. Amazing talent.
Tommy- Scary good with a sword. Also great voice that should be used commercially. DEF should voice his own ads.
Zoe- Such fun playful AD, every time I pass Farrow and Ball I point her ads out!
