santa clause is coming to town

back home in didcot town now
and the work.. is churning out slow
for this flim project, i am going to make soft toy action figures (i hope...)
of the characters from run lola run
but, still dwelling on the designs
i keep hopping back and fourth between over abstract characters, to realistic characters.. and ra ra ra
angela is right, my work is far too character based
but i already have the context for the work.. i am just producing a consumable object for potential sale
art vending

this essay is... boring me to death
i dont even want to say any more on it
i havnt started it yet
its due on the 14th
and.. i couldnt care less

wrong time of year to care too much eh
chin chin y'all

way out west

this is not the most inspiring weather today
however, got some good music on.. been teaching myself slide guitar recently. so listening to some blues
and some music by a guy named andy mckee
pretty amazing

so far for this 'FILM' project, (where, for those of you who don't know, we have to produce a piece(s) of work related to one of the films shown at the film club.)
i have chosen run,lola,run
as it is only a short project i have given myself a set of rules to work by, in order to produce something more specific, and not faff around with ideas when i need to be churning out work.
focusing on the way lola chants her 'wait' mantra in her head whilst running to manni

i have also had the ideas of editing a german mark, to put her face on, making it look like a limited edition flim coupon or whatever
but this seems a bit safe and boring to be quite honest
so i have stuck to looking at polish film posters... keeping it very illustrative. bold lines and colours. almost abstract.
i will try and get some pictures up on here soon
god bless

"hey, you got a killer scene there, man"

the first day of christmas
how time flies
the crit went well.... i wont go into the details, but angela and rolf seemed happy with what i produced.
i know its not great, but being the first narrative i have written and illustrated, i think its a good start, and a good base to go from and improve

the new brief 'film' should be good.. although a very short time scale..
no complaints though as thats what it will be like when i leave uni to the big bad real world
looking at polish film posters..
doing 'run, lola, run'
bright blocky colours
focusing on the way she chants her 'wait...wait...wait' mantra in her head
my parents are visiting today - taking me to lunch. should be lovely.
