The Pledger Pledges



What is the pledge to make??? To be true to oneself, to ones art... To follow the sun leftwards, and rightwards too, and not fail to appreciate the beauty o' a cloudy damp February in London.

Yep, that'll do. Oh and I painted a pretty picture or two.

ps. If you're feeling down and/or out why not listen to Shocking Blue's 'Waterloo'

That's the end O' this shameless plug. I'm sorry, soooo sorry. I dont draw for money ever, never ever. Not ever... it's about making art and putting down a record of my existance...

"Above all else it is about leaving a mark I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopefull. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and thats why I made works of art."
-Felix Gonzales-Torres

In fact please Dont buy anything. Ever!

um.

More Lost Princessess

Where can she be?

An Explanation of this ongoing work can be found in the previous posts under 'Lost princessess'. just in case you're interested or whatever. humm.

Daniel Johnston makes amazing and important music, his phrasings are poignant and powerful, filled with himself and his life.

Covers of his work are in no short supply, and I've just found this version of "Some things last a long time" by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglov.

Last Night

'Laaaaaasssssst night she said, "oh baby, I feel so down", oh and turned me off, when I feel left out.'

So I made some monoprints, Gouache on paper.
Still concerned with childhood heroic ideals, and adulthood realisations. Love will tear us apart.
