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.

What?

UNFINISHED MAJOR WORK is evolving!





Congratulations! Your UNFINISHED MAJOR WORK evolved into MORE UNFINISHED MAJOR WORK.

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!

3km


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:
