The Laughing heart

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

Compuderr skillzzz

I used photoshop for the first time last week to complete a uni brief we had been given to design a book cover for a wildlife book using a maximum of three colours and incorporating text etc etc yadda yadda
anyway heres what I came up with
I hand drew the owl and mice and scanned them in and then inverted the outline - all very complicated and technical I assure thee :)

Most* contemporary art is poo poo

The Tate Modern depresses me and not because i find the work so amazing I leave feeling talentless and unworthy - In my uneducated and worthless opinion - The Tate modern is full ... FULL ... jam packed ... with visually unstimulating tosh ... theres the odd treasure sure - but to be honest the fact that often its just spewing at the sides with pretentious wankers is enough to keep me away :)

the end

p.s. Damien Hirst - you are a twat

Well Indeed

I am not a good Blogger ... its hard to remember to sit and do this all the time - but ... i stumbled upon this amazing website called 43 Things and in a bid to get the most out of myself creatively - and in preperation for a possible move towards University I made several resolutions - the usual stuff ie: excercise my brain and body more often, Meditate, and Draw more .... I have never really kept a sketch book - i generally just go at a canvass and see what happens - but I made a resolution to do ONE sketch a day ... like all resolutions however I have faltered - This will not do!
So this blog is my commitment ... From today I will upload a picture a day from my sketch book!


It might motivate me to produce better work too

We shall see .....
