The Summer of Blake Sinclair
A slice-of-life drama story about University students. It’s about hipsters, punks and subcultures. It’s about the idea of ‘Generation Y’. It’s about identity- the illusion and reality of love, feeling young and lost. It’s about lots of things. It’s like a bad John Hughes movie!

She enjoys over-analysing people and things and this tends to be what she is drawing about.
