I thought it’d be easy to draw stuff that happens to me, but it turns out I’m rubbish at drawing. So here’s a couple of hopeless attempts at visual puzzles, along with a couple of cryptic codes for you to break to figure out what’s been up in my world this week.

Solutions from last week:
1 (3 points). Stained white coat closed up // Photographing world’s ending // What a wide subject
This one was a photoshoot in a Chemistry lab, with the theme of “The Apocalypse”, shot using a wide angle lens.
2 (2 points). Empty magazine // I shoot up to King’s Cross tube // Drugs wellcome me there
I went to the Wellcome Collection’s new High Society exhibit (on drug use) to fill the Reviews section of the upcoming I, Science magazine.
3 (3 points). Thirty white soldiers // Despite apples on the lane // A turkey is mine
We went tenpin bowling. Despite spilling a pint of cider all over the place, I managed to hit a triple strike, or a ‘turkey’, which is 30 pins down in 3 balls.
4 (2 points). I stand motionless // Opposite of magenta // A screen, my debut.
I’m going to be an Imperial student blogger (you’ll see that soon), and had to go to a photo and video green-screen shoot, including posing motionless as an action hero of some kind. It was the first greenscreen I’d done.
5 (2 points). Pen, paper, poems // Piccadilly passengers // Puzzled at puzzles
I wrote these haiku on the Piccadilly tube line, using pen and paper, and the people next to me looked very confused when they tried reading over my shoulder.
