I finally made this Feel Flows playlist. I'm glad I waited till now to make it, it ended up working out great because of that week or so of retrospect. I hope you like it! Recommended listening to while daydreaming with rain pounding on your roof, or in the rain daydreaming, or daydreaming of rain. The most ideal listening situation though is while looking at my current show at Daine Singer, which is still on until the 6th of July :D Here is an image of one of my the paintings from the show. This one is called These Days.
Today is an 'art day' and I have to make work. At the moment I'm working on a piece to go to the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, for a show called PICA Salon, opening in July. I think I'm going to fly over there and attend the very fancy opening night. (Tickets are $1000! But I get to go for free which is only the most exciting thing ever!) I'm trying to manage my time successfully between my Art Guide work now, and I realize I have to utilize every minute so much more because I don't have that many to myself. Any leisure time I have is a luxury and I find it hard to relax as I probably have an email I haven't replied to for 50 years or a drawing to do or whatever or I'm so tired that I fall asleep in the afternoon, like a Nanna.
Today in the post I received a copy of Filmme Fatales, which is an amazing zine about women in cinema edited by my friend Brodie Lancaster. She is a real doll and asked me if I would like to do an illustration for this issue! There it is below. It accompanies an article by Kim Selling called Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now about Nikki Blonsky and Rebel Wilson. You should get a copy for yourself at http://www.filmmefatales.com ;)
I was also mucking around with some drawings today and started the couple below. I am making an Elvis collage (not finished) and working on a design for a competition thing I want to enter. The list of things I want/have to do is endless and often I feel like I don't know where to start, or I work on irrelevant things and I feel like I'm wasting my time. I guess practice makes perfect and I will get better at managing my hours, or I could get one of those time turner things that Hermoine has in Harry Potter so she can go to extra classes and I would be so prolific plus would be rich because I somehow gained access to a fictional magical object and would be able to sell rides on it or something.
