Here is another sketch I just did of a Seahorse. I’ve just realised I need to start drawing them a little smaller to get the right size for when im transferring them onto fabric. Maybe i’ll become good friends with the photocopier….

Scales and spikes.

Found these this morning, I love them, there is something about the textures put on a human figure that makes it for me. My favourites have to be the scales and the urchin style spicks.

โ€ I create images that evoke associations with people and animals. I imagine the balance between the many conflicting feelings and thoughts that a man can have. Balance between opposites as attractive / repulsive, happy / sad or fear / security. My pictures have something in them that causes you to think what to see and feel that it gives you, and then confirm again denied. Because not immediately clear what you see, there is a more complex relationship between spectator and image. The working process is a personal adventure. It starts with a vague idea that once I started going more and more shape. For example, from plastic or ceramic form a picture in which I myself guided by thoughts, emotions and associations. What I see in the form, what a feeling to me, which makes me think, what am I saying this? And therefore I want to make? The resulting image I give all or part of a โ€™skinโ€™ of a different material. The choice of the skin is a reaction to the previously created image. And unlike the spontaneity at the outset of the work, Iโ€™m very structured to work when I make the skin. Iโ€™m weeks with patience and discipline to cut, paste or stick with self-imposed rules as: โ€œany form in the same rhythm,โ€ or โ€œall lines run through. But due to the precision and the chosen materials get my work an alienating, sensual, tough and fragile. โ€ – Sabi Van Hemert

A little post about ‘learning the ropes’ of jewellery making, so far i’ve made 2 pieces as gifts for females friends birthdays. I’ve gone for the very simple look and stuck to 3 colours. Not bad for my first 2 pieces eh? ๐Ÿ™‚

As someone who is determined to learn how to skate board this summer, and have been checking out old skate boards to buy and do up myself I loved what the artist Haroshi has done with his works. Lets hope I don’t add to his pile of broken boards after some horrid accident!

Brown paper.

I used a lot of brown paper in my sketchbooks during college, I think it’s so much nicer to work on in pen for sketches than white paper. Somehow having brown paper gets rid of the blank page blues.
So here is an artist called Florian Nicolle who mixes 2 good things, brown paper and Obama!
