Scooting around for a subject

The music tonight was Art School by The Jam. This is clearly the wrong sort of scooter, but it@s what I’v e got to hand.  


Traveller’s Fare

With Truckload of Art by Cracker playing in my ear, I am sitting in a lounge in Madrid sketching a yoghurt pot – seems appropriate somehow. 

Blurred rouge

Field Recordings: Christian Marclay “Fade to Slide” was the beautifully chaotic soundtrack to tonight’s sketch – I wanted to splash colour about, and my reliable teapot beckoned with its saucy curves and shadows and light.


Travels with my mouse

Music by Liquid Liquid – Groupmegroup – a nice rolling soundtrack for a quick freehand charcoal sketch of my little travelling companion:


Stab stab stab the waxy residue

I’d hesitate to call tonight’s mixture of repetitive pounding drums, monotone vocals, screams and thrash guitar music, but it was short and impelling and the title got me wanting to stab something…. (Brian Joseph Davis: Minima Morlalia Every Work Of Art Is An Uncommitted Crime)


Fork in under spirals

Song for tonight was Damien Save Me by Dave Stewart sounding somewhat like David Bowie at times, and with an irksome saxophone solo. Start off promising – “Sooner or later, we’re all gonna die”, but shrinks to triteness, rather like the head of this fork…


Eyesore I saw

‘Music’ from Polkadot Cadaver – Bring Me The Head of Andy Warhol. Not much to say really – roughness inspired by the song, I liked the simple shape of the saw, and was happy to fluff the teeth!
