Barely uploading these days. Hells hectic with uni. Anywho, here’s a preliminary sketch I’m working on for an elective class.
National Moment of Silent Protest for Mike Brown and St. Louis
Support, love and peace from Melbourne, AU.
Hells typical shots but I love my city.
Trying to organise things and ummmmm…yeah, nah.

So a couple weeks ago I was finally introduced to lithography through Peter Lancaster. After waiting 2.5 years for it, admittedly I felt a little underwhelmed because I was new to it and a little nervous. I wasn’t dissatisfied with the results, I was over whelmed with how much goes into it; and this is just a plate lithograph. I am yet to have a crack at stone lithography which I imagine to be much more physically demanding. Lancaster summed it up and stumped me when he said: “It’s just 3 steps…”
Yes, but 3 steps with so many variables. To a Master printmaker of his calibre, of course it’s a breeze. Haha. But I will pick it up. I’m still a rookie to it. Gotta give myself a minute.
First week back for second semester zipped right past. I thought of how fast this year has gone. 5 months ‘til 2015. I’m so sure I just started this degree last week…it’s already a semester down.
Any who, I eased back into things with this little generic guy. A bit of the traditional.
Hot coco, chocolate and banana bread. Wildest weekend ever!
epiphanytapu and I are going to have an exhibit together one day.
Now this right here, bwoy!

Short clip of assessment set up. I mean, really. This is just a post for me to whine about how much I feel run down and like arse right now. Have not had a proper sleep in a solid month. It’s not insomnia. It’s just a shitty bout of sleeplessness. It comes and goes, hey. I think my anaemia is setting back in. That’s probably a major reason why. Due in for the doc, I guess, hey. Any who. Mid-year break is here. Time to go nuts again with nothing to do with myself. Breaks never do me any good. Worst. June 30, run up, mate! I need to get back in. Got ideas to flesh out.
Brother’s portrait progress. Throwback.
Life drawing. She’s actually pretty big. A0 or a little bigger. Prepping for assessment. Barely got organised today/night. Hmmm…gonna have to wait to really iron it out in the morning. Space-wise, it’s difficult when everybody has large-scale work. Plan B is dumping everything in my studio in piles. Hell yeah, slacker plan!
