March 2009

Just a short update for you:

I’ve not been able to write on my wondrous (yeah right) blog recently because I’ve been terribly busy doing an essay, and looking for a house for next year as my housing plans have fallen through this week.

Hopefully I’ll be feeling more chatty with you guys when I’m less busy…less hectic things going on.

I’m really excited and hoping to find a nice place to live, even though I am scared about moving in with strangers. I never thought it would be me who couldn’t live with their friends… What a loser I’m going to be next year.

Ah well, I’m trying to be optimistic.

Send me a lovely comment or something, make my day.



Hello readers.

Today’s (or tonight’s, as it’s 00:11 here) featured deviantARTist is Jennifer Duong, a Canadian.

She does digital art, including commissions, promo work and so on. I think her work is different to most Digital Artists – it has a sense of glamour, of finesse… she works on the whole piece, not just the character, and has a wide variation of themes.

Her gallery can be found here.

I’d be very interested to know who reads my blog on a regular basis. Every day or two, my blog stats say that someone is clicking on a link in their Hotmail Inbox to get to my blog…how interesting. Are you that person?

I’ve been spending far too much time indoors recently. I’m all bored and lonely, so I want to get out tonight. Although I have had a lot of fun watching the bunnies outside my window chasing each other and eating flower buds! How many people can say they have the ability to watch bunnies run around and munch grass outside their window?

Also, I went to the library to get some books for my essay I’m going to be working on until next Friday. I always enjoy the library, it smells really nice, and I like the challenge of finding the books by working out their codes and locations and things! That’s just me being a geek.

Tonight is election results night at The Venue…so I’ll probably go because I can get free entry and stuff. I don’t really want to spend money, but I do have a fiver, and I haven’t had money for weeks. I’ll treat myself.

This post today hasn’t had any particular point. Thanks for reading anyway. It’s nice to know I’m reaching people I don’t know exist. Are you that person?

My lecture finished an hour early this morning 🙂 I’m so happy.

Anyway on with the blog post!

Today’s featured deviantARTIST is auriethepixie, who is Elizabeth May, 21 from the United States. Her art is focussed on photography with female models, as well as the occasional self-portrait. She likes to shoot outside, which I think adds a really interesting, earthy feel to her work.

Click here for her gallery.

After seeing montygotarawdeal’s blog post on Vampire Weekend’s video for Oxford Comma, it reminded me of their music video I’d seen before – the one for A-Punk.

I love its originality and creativity. I just like it really.

The man behind the alias, pesare is Pete Revonkorpi, a 28 year old Finlander. Gallery is here.

Each piece in his gallery makes me smile! His art is beautiful, and very unique.

I’m also in love with his delicate conceptualism and the way his art hints of storytelling.

This poem is one of mine and Joseph’s favourites from sixth form poetry reading time 🙂 I recently had a seminar on John Clare and it reminded me of this poem. I just find it funny and cute. Enjoy…

Little trotty wagtail he went in the rain,
And tittering, tottering sideways he ne’er got straight again,
He stooped to get a worm, and looked up to get a fly,
And then he flew away ere his feathers they were dry.

Little trotty wagtail, he waddled in the mud,
And left his little footmarks, trample where he would.
He waddled in the water-pudge, and waggle went his tail,
And chirrupt up his wings to dry upon the garden rail.

Little trotty wagtail, you nimble all about,
And in the dimpling water-pudge you waddle in and out;
Your home is nigh at hand, and in the warm pig-stye,
So, little Master Wagtail, I’ll bid you a good-bye.

John Clare
