8th february: recur
gouache on salvaged hardback book cover with found markings and scribbles
available in the Restless Things shop
notes: sometimes i find it so hard to get away from these soft, oval shapes. it doesn't matter how hard i try. i decided to start out with a hard geometric shape this morning but it ended up with a mass of curves creeping inside it. some days i think of this as being focused and on others i think i'm weak minded at can't see beyond the one shape that i love to draw.
this also reminds me of a recurring nightmare i used to have as a child where masses of tires used to roll towards me and i could feel them try to magnetically draw me under their weight. scary stuff.

3rd february: 2 weeks
burning on hardback book cover
available in the Restless Things shop.
notes: i spent many hours keeping warm huddled over an electric heater this morning bringing this piece to fruition. there's something about burning that's very unpredicatable and satisfying. i really enjoy the way it leaves a slight indentation on the paper and it feels so much more permanent than paint.
i've had this hardback cover knocking around for years and i'm pleased to be able to finally piece it's little scrawl in the corner that says '
2 weeks 2 weeks' in with work that's focusing on the passing of time.
really enjoying Bonnie Prince Billy & The Cairo Gang's The Wonder Show Of the World whilst making this, in particular this track...
have a good weekend all!
so finally i got around to picking the winner of the giveaway, it seems that time continues to move at the speed of light and i never have a spare moment to get near the computer these days!
the winner is: rebecca - congrats! i will be in touch with you shortly.
