Rules for a virtual life


Take pictures of yourself in a mirror
Take pictures of yourself in a mirror with the camera covering your face
Have friends on facebook that you don't know
Become distant from your family
Show everyone your legs
Never be more than half a meter away from your smart phone
Keep a vacant look on your face
Keep a vacant look on your face and type this :)
Keek lots
Wear headphones
Dream about pictures
Get anxious waiting for texts
Stress about not updating your blog
Lose your friends

learning to draw

Last week I was asked by one of my students at NTU about my early attempts at drawing.

I hadn't learned to draw when I was in art school and soon after I graduated I felt that my lack of experience was holding me back as a visual artist. I asked a friend for help. He had excellent observational skills and the advice he gave me was to use a confident and decisive line, to stop trying to make 'good' drawings and to focus on the process rather than product.

So I started by following his advice and what you see below is a series spanning about 10 years. The first drawing was made 2 years after graduating. Between some of these images there were periods where I didn't draw at all for more than 3 years, but they're all in chronological order.
