In which a face happens

Its a face!
 A pretty natasha-shaped-face to be precise. I know I wasn't very exciting in how I drew it, in the sense that it's lacking any surrealism that I would usually rely on to fool you into thinking my work is interesting (this isnt a new found confidence in my work, its just laziness). If it helps, it was intended to part of a comic involing the acquisition of lobster hands, but I have nothing to prove that.

So yes, despite being a purely theoretical audience, may say, "But James! what came of the zines and illustrations for graphic novels and games that you promised?" Well to that I say "Psh" and "whatev's" because I"m too angsty to do the work I've had 3 months to work on. In my defense I did start art school which is fairly intensive if you're prone to freaking out at the first sign of difficulty like I am.  As far as stuff that school  has made me do, I made this guy;

from Polystyrene... or was it Styrofoam? are they different? 
*doesnt understand the explaination*
anyway, so then I did a bunch of fancy things and poured Aluminium onto it and it burst into pretty flames and evolved into this guy;

It was just like pokemon. Only pokemon don't give off noxious gases (except the ones that do)
Also I like how the Polystyrene/Styrofoam bits are still all over my desk in these photos despite a fairly significant amount of time having passed since carving him.
So yeah, thats my story.

"My holdays" or "How I ammused myself when the internet was down" Part 3

In an attempt to further ignore the Graphic novel illustrations, and the Game-art I've been asked to do, and the holiday readings for school, and jobs I should apply for, I decided to start a zine with Natasha. She managed to be her usual awesome self and make her half in a day, while I took a different approach of gerring overwhelmed and drawing bugs instead.
here are my bugs...

Part 2. Street Art pics

Just some arts around town I enjoyed. I thought i should document them before they're painted over by boring people.

"My holdays" or "How I ammused myself when the internet was down" part 1

So its summer holidays (the very very end of them), and I have a camera now! thanks to the lovely natasha killeen. I feel since I've been relatively post-less, my pity-followers may want to see some of photos of the fun times. PHOTO MONTAGE: COMMENCE!

Part 1- "Googly eye times"

My new hobby is sticking googly-eyes on vegetables at the super market then running away. you know, for that daily dose of rebellion and whimsy.
