Sweet little lies

If you read the last post (which I know you haven't, because it was only published about thirty seconds ago), you'll know that I claimed to have made no art lately. Well, that was a lie.

I have done some things.

collagezzzz

They are mediocre and have already been on flickr for ages. But I figured I'd put them here anyway.

Also OMFGMULTIPLES.

"Desire to seem clever, to be talked about, to be remembered after death, to get your own back on grown-ups who snubbed you in your childhood..."

Title taken from George Orwell's "Why I Write" (to be found in the discussion of motivation, listed under the category of "Sheer egoism").

I suppose this blog factors into that kind of thing. It is documentation, a little forum for externalisation, highly mediated soul baring/sharing/...underwearing? Whatever.
