Pears I

I bought some beurre bosch pears recently which are delicious and also look very nice - they are lumpy and odd shaped, which is what i like about pears.

I have done some watercolors of them which i will upload at some point, but here's a digital painting i did this morning.

Weird dancers

I always liked illustration thats got a distinct style. I naturally try to copy what i see, and even when i'm stylizing illustration it still ends up looking like i TRIED to be realistic and just suck :P

So i felt inspired to do something geometric-ish and very blocky.
I like the idea of this but not necessarily how i've executed it so i've saved the .psd and i may revisit it sometime.

I drew this on Adrian Hogan's graffiti wall at Facebook.
I'm not "into" facebook, lets make that very clear.

although, i did say i wasn't "into" blogging yet here i am providing voluntary posts on one of my 4 blogs (yes that number is misrepresentative as i only really use 2 of them, and i won't use one of those after uni).

anyway, the graffiti wall is a very crude paint thing.
And i painted a watermelon car.
Oh i do hope he likes it.

Sculpture plan

This is a rough sketch for a sculpture I hope to make tomorrow - I'm going to a day class. I have no idea what it'll be like, we are told to come with an idea but i have no clue if the block of "hemel" will be easy to carve, or what size, or ANYTHING really! I've planned to keep with simple, stylized forms which should make it easier and more flexible depending on how the hemel reacts. But i'll probably come back with something way different.

It's also tricky to conceptualise a 3d sculpture. Hmm.

I'll post what I end up with :)

What the smeg is hemel...? time for a g00gle.

Samson - Regina Spektor

Already started putting other people's work in this blog, hah.

but i liked aspects of this very much. I found the editing quite clunky actually but the stop motion and some of the animated bits were really nice.

There's no place like home

Been listening to a lot of new The Receiving End of Sirens, and the last song "Pale Blue Dot" repeats this line throughout. It's a reference to Carl someone-or-other who talks about Earth as a pale blue dot...

So this response is pretty straightforwardly derived from that (and i guess the liner art a little too...?) but was quick and fun.

mucking round with color... choosing, blending, making crappy digi-paint.

I wouldn't post this anywhere. but that's kind of the point. Doing stuff that isn't actually good. but still is somehow useful for development, who knows how.


This blog is a no-rules creative outlet for me - hopefully a motivation to keep experimenting and churning out little bits and pieces that don't fit within uni stuff.

This first one is a painting i just did. It's not 'finished' and it's not that inspiring, just a copy of a photo, but it seems like as good a place as any to start.

Comments and critique are welcome on this blog but I may not pay much notice to them, as it's not really that kind of place, it's mainly for my own sanity. (though i will still read them, so if you feel the urge, go ahead!).
