I really, really, really, really want to get into ceramics!
I want to get into ceramics but
a) the art workshop scares me
b) I need to consider the possibility that I’m too broke for sculptural and spatial practice
c) it’s too much OH&S in there
d) I don’t want to get rough, callous and worn out hands. They’re too soft and pretty fo’ dat
Not sure if I want to do this after the break or save it for next year. I’m gonna do this come hell or high water even if I starve and get man hands.

Soft ground and later added spit etch.
Okay, no bullshit. I’m just uploading this because I have nothing else to do and it’s mid-semester break. We are only on the second day (weekend, mind you) of the break and I’m already losing my shit. I don’t like breaks. I don’t like doing nothing.

Today, I learnt that graffiti is really fucking hard. This is the background layer for the previous post. Evidently, I struggled. But it was definitely an interesting break from the usual “art” grind.
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.

aluminium plate lithograph
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!
