Darn kids on my lawn again

I went out into the city today. It was awash with obnoxious teenagers on summer holiday, their strange garb and behaviours instilling in me a sense of fear and hatred.

I am becoming an angry old woman before my time.

Also introduced a couple more stickers to train walls.

The second was an impromptu attempt at bringing the whole architecture thing back.

Shiiiiiit, that thing.

Ad nauseam


... Maccas window pane!

... casino of bathroom of shame!

+ Another houseguest, this time waiting at the window to eat the insects attracted to the interior light.

(His name is Augustus and he is very pleasant.)

Season's Eatings

Questionably animated silly season wishes.

+ A wasp and her de-limbed spider bounty in my backyard, because what the people want the people get.

I hope whatever you find yourself in the midst of today is enjoyable and flavoursome, not unlike the arachnid above.

Summer brings new houseguests



Mounting evidence that no-one gives a crap

More contact adventures...

...and she didn't care ---->

The Town Hall Station guard didn't care ---->

The guy who watched me put this up and refused to smile back definitely didn't care ---->

I didn't really care about this guy 'cause he sucks (sorry, fella). ---->

I'm defaulting to more 'decorative' cut out bits. I should curb this.

I should also, instead of pissing away my time on stickers, be very seriously working on stuff for my Honours year.
What I've read so far in relation to my proposed area of study I cannot consolidate. Might the answer be to stop reading?

P.S. 69th entry! HAHAHAHAHA!

Something to do with primal scream therapy

[ ] Drano to my creative block
[x] Highly disappointing public humiliation

(Something something demarcation of personal space something.)

The way I see it, only thing standing between pissing on public property and justified beautification is quality.

Three blind rats

I cut off their tails with a carving knife, I did.

And that's the end of that chapter

My major work, she is complete.

Disappointment, I have it.

Fortunately, this latter fact is negated (to an extent) by the knowledge that I will never have to work on this blasted thing again. Ever.

The Grad Show opening was last night. There's some pretty sweet stuff going on at the old SC of A.

And now here is a picture of my studio's booze stash for the evening, which is infinitely more exciting than my work.

It only took a little over an hour for all of it to disappear. Goddamnit.

I can't wait until this is all over.

Also here are some prints from this semester. It has been a bad time for print.

First is a 5 layer screenprint on perspex. I want to do more bandage headed men but I can't get the head shape right.

The second is an etching and its plate; the source of unspeakable troubles. I tried a new soft ground technique, screwed up the first plate I used it on then ended up with a less-than-mediocre result with this, the second plate. Also aquatint. Aquatint is evil.

All etching I will do in the future will be linework. Pinkyswear.

Shit, son.

I'm sorry about all the bitching and pointlessness of late, it's just that the Grad Show is now only a matter of days away.

The blog will be back to its regular schedule of bitching and pointlessness interspersed with bad art soon.

I realise you probably don't care, so feel free to leave.
If you haven't already.
But if you have, who am I talking to?

Oh god, it's all too much.

Today's story involves this place, the sculpture studio; my home at SCA.

Thankyou, ebay.

After an overly long and less-than-joyous day, the internet Gods have bestowed upon me the gift of happiness.

Oh, divine deliverance!

Drawings make bellyachin' more acceptable (even if you do misspell "hygiene").

My favourite jeans have a hole in the crotch. It is breezy.

Hefty withdrawal from the wankbank


For the walls and shit.

Dog's breakfast

The Grad Show is about a week away now. Soon people will be floating away, I will be biting my nails over whether or not I've gotten into an Honours year and shit will be geting real*.

My major work, at the present, is a very expensive pile of wood. Lets hope I can get my act together before the opening as I don't particularly want to repeat third year.

In the meantime have some of this:

Also, I've been doing a lot of this lately:

Because of this:
