Been away for a few days. It's been the kind of week spent coming home from work and drinking Asahi watching Louis Theroux doco's, which is fine as it gives me time to evaluate things. Last night I started working on this collage piece, which I think is really interesting. I had to sort of re-think the way I do things, as i had gotten a little bored of the drawings I was doing lately. For this, I imposed a no pen, pencil or brush rule, and I only used one photocopied photograph to chop up. I will be doing more of the same I think. Rules and parameters seem to yield interesting results.

While I was at work last night, this image popped into my head . . .i think maybe somewhere I had seen an image of someone holding their hands up to their face, and it stuck in my head. I drew it in about 10 minutes, and with no real point of reference other than what I saw in my head. I think somewhere in there I was imagining a person who is falling apart in some way, and doesn't know what is happening to them.

Something I threw together last night which . . .came from watching Blade Runner in HD, and seeing all those amazing little lights and details in the city. I am still somewhat stuck on this idea of a noise ridden world, like that in the movie. I think in this world it would be a lot more stark and cold, and not as reliant on technology......maybe?

Spent a couple of hours tonight on this . . .which is the result of a conversation about desktop wallpapers. I think this is cool, but I really need to get myself a drawing tablet. This may get used for something, but even if it doesn't I think it breathes life into the original idea. I wanted to take the original single tree idea and push a little bit, and place it in an environment.

A new drawing that I did late last night, again dealing with the idea of a noisy world. I have not been doing much art lately (the last 2 weeks) due to being ill. This illness was induced from the consumption of Beer/sprits and the subsequent wrecking of my immune system, pathetic really. I think this piece is interesting, but I really really can't make up my mind about it at all.
