Bad Art Day

Bad art day. Interestingly, the first letter from each of those three words (bad, art and day) spells BAD. Bad art days are when you sleep in because it's so unbearably cold outside and when you finally get up you can't for the life of you figure out an outfit you want to wear, your hair's not looking so good either (one might even say: 'bad'). You get to the studio at about 1.00, just in time for lunch so you waste another hour then FINALLY you pick up a texta and the result is disastrous. Consistency in your failure is the only achievement of the afternoon.

After a while you do so many drawings you can hardly tell the ones that are successful from the ones that aren't any more. Maybe that's nice or something I'm not sure, like seeing but not seeing you know.. but it was real tough! I drowned my sorrows in free beer and fudge at the Student Gallery opening afterward then on my way home listened to this playlist which is just generally pretty ridiculous.
