A small expeirment

Mainly part of this experiment is to see if I can upload a Gif. However it does also happen to be part of   a typography project I'm doing at the moment, as  really need to learn how to deal with words and letters.

Its a raptor

Sorry I completed this ages ago, but in having to hand in a professional practice folder, I completely forgot to do anything about my online presence. I will blog something which I like soon trust me. But I thought its been a while, and I'm quite proud of the Raptor. Also because it looks way better in real life there's bombs suspended underneath, now all I need is a little man ejecting from it.

Term is now officially over, and I don't really have any art to show you, however I am proud of a christmas dinner I cooked last night with Other Martha for my house. So instead I'm going to show just how delicious MarthaSquared cooking is by showing you the carnage of the kitchen now.

Low flying planes, BEWARE

It had been reported that planes have been spotted flying dangerously low above Gilly beach. We ask all pedestrians on the footpath between Gilly and Swanpool beach to be extra carful.

So bored

I'm soooo sooooooooo bored.
I had this intention today to do all of the paperwork for professional practice. Yeah I don't know what that means either.
 Instead I made these.

I've been cheating

I've got into tumblr and I really didn't mean to. Heres some things I put up there a few days ago. There just some experiments which I'm not going to use but I like how they look.

Its just so close now

This projects been going on for too long now, and its really starting to annoy me. However I do think that I'm almost there, and I think I would have finished it tonight. if there hadn't been a bird in the studio. Or at least thats my excuse. Anyway heres some things which are technically still experiments, however depending on how much I can be bothered. 
The first image is for American Psycho.

And the second is for Lunar Park.

Its George Harrison

Its George Harrison, but I cut him up a bit. I did intend to do some of that dissertation thing. I may have gotten distracted however.

I think it could be getting there

I defiantly feel like this is getting there, today I made this collage which will be the centre for the American Psycho cover, however there is still some inky, painty, you know that kind of messy thing. I know what I mean. it should be finished by tomorrow however which will be good.

Waiting, waiting, waiting...

I feel I have a lot of waiting to, mainly however because apparently I have a sudden interest in the US election. Maybe its just because I know the BBC graphics, are going to be fucking awesome, because their really good at doing elections, especially when the get the green screen out. Anyway heres some more work, still American Psycho, but I defiantly feel like I'm getting somewhere. Although they are still just experiments.

I'm back

Said Patrick Batemen after he viscously tortured and murdered two prostitutes. Or at least that's what he believes he's just done, if he has is different question however, which can only be answered by post-modernism. As you may be able to guess from that hint just there I'm doing something with American Psycho. Mainly because the last thing I made was nice, and pretty, and easy to look at. So I thought the best remedy to that would be do something with a Brett Eastern Ellis novel. As the chances are the reader won't want to be reading the book, so I can make the something that people may not want to necessarily look at.
However I really like how there looking, although these are just initial visual kind of things, nowhere near what the final thing will look like.

Something Different

Heres something that isn't, maybe not particularly me. Although its good to do something different. Its an entry for a book cover competition by Hush, a luxury lounge-where company for a book they are publishing with 12 short stories. The only specification was that it was based around the word Hush.  I decided that my main concept would be the phonetic symbol for sh- /ʃ/.

Yo its been a while

Boom said the person who only every says "BOOM", heres some work I made today, its about Venezuela and its economy, read all about it in this article. Anyway I feel quite good about it at the mo, especially because it was pretty much entirely done by hand, as well as all the experimentation. Boom see I'm maturing I so don't need a computer to make my work anymore !!

First day of school

Literally it is 9:09 and  technically start my 3rd year of university (no abbreviations you notice I'm really putting this off), and final year of not free, but education before actually having to think about money. So as you can tell really looking forward to this. Anyway what I really wanted to show you are these pictures of a plane I totally made out of my real hands and everything.
See its really nicely decorated and everything, but thats the thing I totally did that rather than you know work out what I'm going to do this year. Or research the big writey thing I have to give in in February  However what I have done is post a picture of this on twitter, because apparently that what we have to do in the real world. Become a douchbag who tell the world that there making themselves a sandwich, and then that it was good. All because we once heard a story of a friend of a friend who got a commission through it, like hipster version of an urban legend. But anyway I've probably put off walking to uni for too long as it 9:19, and I have to be there in 11 minuets so I really should go !!!

So its the end of the year.

I'm done, completely finished, I've even had and taken down a show, so you know that defiantly means 2nd year is officially over, and even with a rather lack luster mark for life drawing everything is now completely signed and sealed. And all I have left now is the 3rd and final year, before I actually have to tackle the real world.

So here is quite a bad picture of my work on a wall.

Some fun with Barry

So I handed in on Wednesday and now I'm done, if alls gone well 2nd year is done, and all I've got to worry about is the 3rd and final year.  And now I have to find a new thing to fill my time with, and something to moan about. However hear are the last few things I did before my hand in, its all to do with the uncanny, but I basically just took loads of pictures of our live in life model Barry.

Experiments I guess

I'm sorry I'm trying to think how I can describe these, I guess there experiments, although this is still all in the early stages of being worked out. Its something to do with Freud and the uncanny, although I'm still wondering why I photocopied most of the book and put it in my sketchbook, so for other people to know why I did that I'd be very impressed. 
Anyway now I've done that mad ramblings which you only truly get the day before your big scary final assessment here is some work I guess, to do with the uncanny I think. At least thats what all the evidence is pointing towards.

I'm unsure what im doing at the moment

All I really know is my final hand in is on Wednesday, and I've read some Freud. So hears two pictures I took which look slightly 3D, when put together quickly, but not really.

I've just gone beyond procrastination,

I call it hyper-procrastination. I'm sure theres a post-modernism joke in there. But now that I've finished my essay, and tidied my room all there really is left for me to do is my actual work. Instead however I decided to paint myself white, because that totally had to be done.
Next time I promise I will have actually, maybe of done some work.

I'm really bored

And I want to make some meringue or mayonnaise, unfortunately I don't have any eggs so neither of these boredom strategies are on the table. I could walk over to my desk and do some drawing, but that would require leaving my bed and walking over to my desk. Whats more satisfying than meringue or mayonnaise, which you can make without eggs.

On time

I worked and experimented, and didn't waste my days deliberately by watch biggest loser, or something equally as trashy, and I've actually completed something which I like, and managed to stick to the deadline I set myself. So here are two editorials based around the history of surgery
The first one is about going into the brain, and lobotomies.

And the second one is the history of reconstructive facial surgery.

Charbusiness abuse

Right current project actually nearly finished. Just though I'd share the brilliant abuse I'd been putting people who are kind enough to let me take a picture of through.

This makes me smile

This was meant to be good, but something happened as it was being made, and all the goodness dissolved away!
Oh well maybe I'll do something good tomorrow!

I'm sorry

But who the hell is designing these mannequins, because I have a feeling it may be someone who had never been around an actual person, who has proper moving limbs. and is lucky enough to have evolved so they can actually stand up with out losing their balance.

Three Illustrations

Hear are three illustrations about the internet, and internet hacktavism, cyber criminals and gangs, and cyber warfare, and was meant to be some illustrations for this article. Although it may have evolved a bit
However I did do the crazy thing of not using photoshop and doing this for real.
