So I was a little "Blu" graffiti artist inspired (by his wall animations) for those who havent watched it yet ... http://www.vimeo.com/993998
And yeah... then I painted my bedroom wall... (over my previous red and white wall painting) It's obviously not as awesome! ... it was pretty quick... It's very hard to work in such a large scale... Anyway he is sitting crouched in my room behind the canvases...I moved them a bit so you can see...but his head and hands peep over the top of them normally. He is right beside the door so he guards my room! My grandma will be staying in my room while I'm overseas... I dont think she will like him very much!
This is a continuation on a work I started a while ago... again its pretty large scale... and now that I'm seeing it this size I realise I dont really get to stand back from it enough. Its a bit of a van gough appropriation (hence the stars and the scissors cutting off both my ears) Still alot of work to do I think... with the body and makingthe ear, hands and scissors more readable. I want the blood to pour down her shoulders a bit like a veil... like she is a maiden. She is giving up her ears for love... and kind of not wanting to hear the truth/ the music that reminds her of her heart. So she is getting rid of the problem. yeh maiden in the night sky, bleeding her heart out... no longer wanting to hear the music. dramatic yes? It's a little gorey looking... I'd like to tone it down more.
mmm and the other paintings... just waiting... for me to play with them... stupid lion man... has several hundred faces... and hair doos... I just cant capture what I want... Icebergs havent really done much... one above is just a very rough idea... want to paint some grassy hills...
and one next to it is based on an earlier drawing.... rough outline of girl walking with a ghost attached to her heart... etc... :P need more painting time!! but only 2 weeks till I go away... I guess the paintings will go on a bit of a hiatus... jazz fight... dooba deeboo doooo... BOB>.. etc (home movies reference)
