...


dunno, I'm thinking about this stuff way too much, shattering whatever fragile pieces of confidence I have left into even more tiny pieces of frustration, need a break from thinking about...stuff and..things... No more blog now...that's it, it's over.

One last thing.

Dear jaundiced, my genuine enthusiasm for your environment drawings can only go so far towards chivvying you... and I fear compliments are only so constructive.. however, I want to reiterate how much your drawings/compositions have improved over the course of the year - so much so that you can now be cynical about your own work! (I think a certain cynicism is an essential part of your trench-coat wearing character!). However, you do seem somewhat beholden to the 'used-future' aesthetic and your environments possess a certain sameness... I can only encourage you to diversify and try something less predictable and non-rewarding - as you seem to be suffering from a crisis of confidence; again, I suggest you stop visualising in the abstract, and test your new-found technical skills via some interpretation of a text or re-imagining of an existing world... perhaps you simply need to be more creative/imaginative, as the mere fact of making perspective work has obviously run its course for you... :-)

... oh, and something wonderful to look at; check out the photographs of Margaret Bourke-White... let me know what you think... and I hope the blues are dispersing a little...

nice, I much prefer classic Photography than I do modern. Particuarly WW2-ish era Photographers such as Robert Capa and William Eugene Smith etc. Maybe because I'm interested more in it's use of capturing key moments in history and capturing a lost-age so to speak. I also like the classic colour photo's Albert Kahn and co took, nice pictures but they me make me sad that those cultures are practically gone now.

Also happiness only dilutes peoples work, all my heroes finest moments are when they were most broken and tormented.
