A peek at my (untitled) Artists Book

In the course of my studies I had to make a printed artists book that included multi-plate prints and text. These images show just a little of my little book. The book looks at "image" and how others form an image of us by how we present our bodies. The brief book limits this exploration to tattooed, clothed and naked bodies. It utilised visual metaphors and dual-meaning words that bring the bodies closer to "book". The in-a-nutshell clique that may explain it all is "you can't judge a book by its cover"! If you would like to see more images of this book just click here.

Just home from life drawing...

Went to life drawing tonight. Haven't been in ages. It was so much fun. Lots of experimenting. Had a really interesting 'conversation' with a tin of bitumen... now I have lots of ideas... Tomorrow I'm going to try printing with it!

My two favorite things - together!

Where I live, this never screened. Even if it had, I don't think I would have seen it enough anyway. Enjoy!

I dooooo love my coffee. I do, I do, I do love my coffee.
instant = yuck
plunger = not my fav
drip filter = also not my fav
perculator = do I have to say it again?
espresso = technical difficulties to the max
(I'm no barista.)
Nespresso machine! A perfect cup of coffee everytime! (See Nespresso, I'm not holding that one bad batch of 'Roma' against you! I know manufacturing is not an exact science!) A PERFECT cup EVERY time! It's a miracle! My day job is such that I cannot buy a coffee during the day. I don't drink it after work. I'm not organised enough to be ready early enough to buy one before as it would mean an extra trip. So now I have a stunning coffee at breakfast and my highly practical Thermos flask of coffee for morning tea. Not ideal, but soooooo much better than drinking the International Roast at work!!!
