I miss painting!!!!!!

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.

ABBOTT’S-A-WANKER!

Welcome to Wonderland, son.

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.

Trying to organise things and ummmmm…yeah, nah.

Epiphany Tapu
Rookie Relic

aluminium plate lithograph 
2014

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!
