Random Narrative Creator

New technique new tutor Tom taught us. Create random blobs on a page and see what happens. I was dubious at first but then this happened...

A narrative just sprung up out of nowhere! Duuuude! Nothing to do with my original theme though. Maybe the Concerned Little Dog (as I call him) befriends a wisecracking moth and they run away together, dreaming of making it to the moon. Then they get taken in by kindly strangers. The end.

I'd rather spend billions on this...

I wish I could take credit for this beast of a captionm but unfortunatly this nugget of genius-ness comes hot off the front page of Pundit Kitchen. Still, it took the words RIGHT OUT MY MOUTH!

Finally back in the studio now that's up to working condition again after the summer refit. First it was super de-ja-vu but now I feel home again. These are some scans from the summer brief we were issued. I choose to explore gravity and ended up at moths: flying moths, trapping moths, dead moths. It started with finding a dead moth under some boxes when I moved out, so I kept it and stuck it in (image 1) then, when I got to my new student digs the place was COVERED in moths (image 2). I don't usually take cues from the universe but it got me thinking about the life cycle of moths, and moths that are trapped and unable to fly. Moths that are denied the ability to fly, thus the whole gravity thing. Also, I relate to moths. Butterflies are beautiful, everybody knows that, and every little girl has a butterfly on their clothes somewhere. What about moths? Moths are beautiful too, just marginalized because of their unconventional beauty. Thats me. I'm a moth. So anyway I was out getting to know my new student area and there were all these really pretty colored leaves...(image 3)

In my haste to scan this the glue I used to preserve the leaves is still a bit wet - on the right.

Photo Post- End of Summer

All moved out. That's a whole post in itself, but instead have some pictures from my Summer as I head into a frightening and confusing time. Click to make much bigger!

(I didn't want to destroy the flow of the post, so captions'll go here if anyone's interested. 1. Smokin' hot Tim at the BBQ. 2. The peacock from the zoo. 3. Brother Sam hugs his girlfriend Jess after completly his 850 mile end-to-end walk to raise money for Luekemia research, to which we lost our Dad. 4. London's South Bank, performance artist hugs a very unwilling man who then walk's off in a huff. 5. Photographer at the Debating Matters Final. I thought I might learn something by sitting next to him throughout my time off during thr 4 day event. I didnt. 6. A loverly couple who had been married for 40 years or so, a mixer event for the Disablity Action Network which sought to get opinions and suggestions from disabled members of the public regarding accesibility in the city. 7.
