For this collaboration I'm going to just take shit loads of photographs using film, this project doesn't feel like it needs much (if any) drawing. My drawing book is coming along, but to be honest I think it will just be experimenting with other ways of drawing and typography. Off to London Town next week, hope I don't sleep in, perhaps I should invest in an alarm clock.

Collaboration across the nation

I can't sit around doing nothing, so this is a self initiated drawing task for my collective. Basically, I start a drawing and the other people within my group add to it. Working with others isn't so bad, but when you don't have a say in it it doesn't always go as you'd like. I'm being negative about the whole thing, let's just see how it pans out.

All things considered

Despite having only done lino cutting once before, I endevoured to do it again, even though I knew it would result in injury. I must have sliced my fingers at least 30times, however I'm pleased with the results and it is actually quite theraputic doing it. This was a 3 week drawing project on the theme of transport. In parallel to this I also did some plaster cast of these lino cuts and also some prints.

Influence & Reflection 27/01/2011

Favourite photograph EVER!

To be honest this task is virtually impossible. Just like I can't pick a fovourite film, book or song, I can't pick one outstanding photo which I can call my favourite. Truman Capote is without a doubt one of the most amazing and beautiful writers that has ever put pen to paper. So I picked this photograph, everything within the picture expresses his creative and expressive personality. The image is stunning, rather than sticking with a plain background, it is filled puppets and maquettes- to me it resembles a dream-like state where creativity blossoms.
