One of the best people I have met at Monash, is Hayden Daniel who runs the blog which showcases his little cartoon drawings and paste ups which have a boyish energy to them as well as being just generally cool. Today during my 5 hour break between classes I did some collaborative drawings in the library with him. This is one of them:
I did the head.

Under the Milky-Smooth Way

Here are some recent works which are as yet unfinished. In other news I have started a Visual Arts degree at Monash, it's pretty cool, there is great common room with a microwave and I have met some really great people, two in particular.

Weeping willow won't you wallow louder.

Hand drawn stickers on brown 'Officeworks sticker paper', I still have no idea where I will stick these, possibly I will send them to Denmark to stuck up in some place cool over there. Hand drawn stickers have a sadness to them, so much work goes into them just to see them stuck up somewhere and then the next month gone, but it's a good sadness,  like when you rip the leaves off silverbeets.

With knives they dug metal out of stone.

Ainslee and I had another meeting today, most of which consisted of us silently leafing through books of poems, folklore, bird guides and an Icelandic dictionary in silence. Ainslee wrote a poem and I draw these two gold pictures, I would have finished them but my gold pen just ran out. I will but a pen tomorrow and continue.

Lost in a Forest.

For the past week I have been communing with the fog, pressing storms into books as if they were flowers, making bark boats and bathing in unicorn perfume under the bright moon and it's hand picked stars. I have begun a project with my friend Ainslee, a poet who runs the blog spatial blues. Ainslee is one of those people you meet that change you forever, as if sent from god. We are creating a hand printed zine, with poems and drawings detailing a boys mystical journey into a forest, the finished product will be printed on Stonehenge fawn paper and printed on a soy-based flatbed printer with some of the art being printed with a gocco printer.

Here are some Gods:

The God of Bark Boats.

The Spirit of Bent Sticks.

The God of Sticks Suspended in Spider Webs. 

The Reaper of Bird Hearts.

These are drawings that will accompany the poems, however I also plan to do some gold drawings which will be more loosely connected to the writing. Ainslee and I will have another meeting sometime this week.
