Art in Progress / Mediums Present: Ink, Graphite and Photoshop
I recently read this funny article about Matthew McConagheajdhfkjashd being the new Johnny Depp but it brings to mind how Bad Projects can really affect the appearance of any creative no? If you are wondering why I brought up Matthew McCongakjhsdfukhas is because I was so enthralled by the True Detective Opening sequence use of double exposure (hence the first image) and obviously his acting!
Anyway I’m thinking about going Big for the next work of images which is going to be funnily enough, very covered up to exaggerate sexuality and arousal. Weird how the mind always want what it can’t have.
Life is long - Matt Jackson
The back story: I recently attended an amazing event held by theloop and met so many Creatives from all walks of life. Matt Jackson, a poet (amongst other things), was a mentor there and said that the worse advice given to him was that “life is short”. He then told us a poem about how life is long because it is the only life you know. This saying runs so similar to what people would say to each other during Chinese New Year - May your life be long and prosperous!
So how do you want to live your life? Long or Short? I still can’t decide
Animalicious: the wonderful thing about winter is that all the big black birds come out and line dead branches with amazing silhouettes. My new favourite so far is the currawong. They gather in large numbers at native gumtree wilderness but are becoming more common in suburbia. The curvature of their beaks and slender necks puts them apart from the broader bodied magpies and ravens. Oh yeah, do you know that their name is onomatopoeic?
You Talk Too Much! Is now for sale at red bubble. Unfortunately most of my stuff is under mature content hmmmmmm…..
The hoarder in me can’t seem to get rid of all these art invitations and postcards because God damn, the quality these printed cards have is crazy. By sheer laziness of trying to be productive but in the end just messing about with my sharpie, I somehow managed to get 2 doodlings! This is some low level graffiti yo!
Fresh Art: Brrrrrrr! You know it’s cold when you have steam coming off you when you are cycling in the morning fog. Wearing knits of any sort has become a treasured, smelly survival item! Unfortunately most of them go through the wears and tears of any tomboy so we must be resourceful in patching things in the most creative way.
The sewer girls and their captured avian friends are here to help out once again, using their hair to weave back the holes in your pockets in Pocket Knits. In Peek-a-knit they some how managed to tangle themselves up in a new project. Oh no…
I’m also excited to announce that I have a red bubble account now with these illustrations for sale there! Please check it out and support a fellow artist here:
