permanence

I find private views completely anticlimactic – all the effort and frantic frustration, panic and tension boiling down to a glass of cheap red and a hint of ‘where did all the effort go?’. there’s also the tiny niggles and worries and little things that go wrong that make you think ‘ah well…’. Still –…

She’s a model and she’s looking… ok, considering.

cracking on, cracking on… have ditched the idea of the plaster-soaked fabric as although it’s do-able it’s not really feasible  (or should that be the other way round? probably should.) So, in collusion with 3D John i’m using mod-roc and a painted fabric skirt. theoretically.    this was just a dry run with the fabric i was considering. I knew…

‘ello muto…

right, effectively my final piece is due…. (drumroll…) wednesday. Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaa. I’ve been cracking on with SkinFlick, which will be presented in a mutoscope (a.k.a a ‘What the Butler Saw’ machine).

the saga so far…

Right. You recall how yesterday I was wittering on about my Thursday morning deadline, argh, etc, blah. Well, that became…. Drumroll… 3 pm today! haaahahahaaaahahahhahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! So, rather than work on the other ideas i’ve been thinking about I’ve submitted ‘Under my Skin’ as my proposed final major project… eek. A couple of hastily photoshopped images…
