List

http://expo7000.tumblr.com/ a blog about japenese stuff, seems to be a mix between asian porn and general niknaks, sometimes power images occur
http://oxford-monocle.tumblr.com/ this is the oxford monocle run by my friend dom who is the most smart and dappar man ive ever seen, has a tash too. its good, hes influenced by shit like this
http://edwardianera.tumblr.com/ seems to be old fashioned.
http://deathrainbows.tumblr.com/ apparently showcases images that its creator – “Wyatt W.” – imagines death will ‘look like’… literally.

Wyatt explains:

Conceptually, I was thinking about how it’s said that when the spirit departs the body, spectral colors refract inside the skull and countless images flash before one’s eyes: these are the “death rainbows” the title refers to, a reel of images that represent one’s universal life force. And in this sense the project is Reichian… I truly think of the work as a collage of Orgone imagery!

What Wyatt is actually talking about – “images flashing before one’s eyes” just before death – are typical near death experiences, during which (some postulate) a massive amount of dimethyltryptamine is released from one’s pineal glands, causing visual and aural hallucinations, among other effects. Other researchers have different theories.

There's an article about it on THOUGHT CATALOGUE a site usually full of bullcrap but i like this article. I have been working down similar lines on the progession on THE FEAR OF EVERYTHING.




enlarge the black and white one and stare it at its horrid, i used it in BF1 exhibtion

Kurt



Kurt gets bored at work and rings me a lot during the day, sometimes with nothing to say but sometimes he has really stupid poems and he starts reciting them so i recorded this one. He has some funny metaphors too

Postcards Up




New 'Unique Postcard' extravaganzaa in my Shop
Here are some examples of what you might recieve in the post....it's pot luck, its like funhouse. Also I sorted the site out for you overseas people. So Paris to Tokyo your all sorted like a Rainbow in the Dark xx

Postcard


This is a really small project, someone sent me a blank postcard with their address and a stamp on it. I drew on it and sent it off. It was part of some project she was doing for school/uni. Sorry it took me so long to do Sophia! I was thinking of offering some sort of personalised service like this in my SHOP so you guys can get your hands on a totally unique piece of work, I thought something postcard sized would be nice? lemme know what you think on my TWITTER
Yeah that's right ive finally organised an ONLINE SHOPit's taken me long enough eyyy....
In other news since i posted last my friend Kurt is Back and we've been driving round in his BMW listening to this BLOOD BROS. mix. It seriously is everything I love, and I draw a lot to it at the moment it makes me feel more manly in my butt.

Kurt has a skinhead here, I have short hair as this is one of the times i was on a 'sabatical' from uni, AKA drinking too much and lost my mind, I think the photo shows this well. The easy to wear clothes and the distant look in my eyes>? The other friend is Jimmy, hes a little meercat rascal.
Also I was On TV the other day and had an exibtition but more on that later im of to the T shop to work on my motors x

MARCH ONWARDS

Yeah its March and I haven't posted much on this for a while. I know it's slack. Right what have I been doing? Past 3 Months I got over my toothache, had it ripped out and was working on a building site for 3 months as commissions have been slow and also I guessed I could work in the morning on the building site and then when i get home about 4.30 I could start drawing work, which worked well as I got laid off last Friday and its already 4.30 now as I write and I've hardly done anything except beat off, and have a bath and eat a pizza and hang with my dog, went for a drive up the town sat in a que, lost my temper and fucked off before i got to the end of the que in the bank. so basically have achieved nothing. Work that I have done recently that I liked was a joint FOALS/FREELANCE WHALES release on Subpop



and then I bought a kart which I'm gunna be racing this year which is my main interest outside of art, I have been quietly working away setting up a little team to run myself, now my house has a massive merc sprinter van outside dominating the driveway and loadsa other racing parafanalia, infact if I didnt have to do art anymore id just ride motorbikes and race but something spurs me on, maybe when I retire I'll just tinker with engines. Here is the bike and one with me and the old man tinkering




I'll put pictures up of the kart racing soon, but here's me when I was younger doing it



Also I had an exhibition with Dave Ma and Blessing Force crew and i had a big party last week, went to the NME awards and was on telly on saturday monring when i woke up with a hangover which was surreal. Here is one of the links to one of many appearances that were made HERE. OK ill put some pics up soon, speak to you soon my daarlingggggs x
