Lots of new multi-coloured spray paint is keeping me busy. Some oldies and a new painting I'm working on. It looks like crap right now. I'm still experimenting, but I am working with shitty $4 paint. It'll be a good challenge to pull off this one off.

New paintings on birch, both in progress.There was no colour used in the convict, weird that he looks blue. Venezuela plans are marching ahead slowly, I was shown the Thumbs Up! seasons for the Vice travel guide to psyche myself into travel mentality. I just finished Linkoff season 2, David Choe is a pretty amazing artist with a bit of cynicism and a lot of energy, it's tough not to like and compared to hitchhiking i'll be living in luxury.

Improving slowly, my house smells like a campsite. Its kind of nice.

Free Time

For the first time since grade 10 I am unemployed and out of school, and am somehow still managing to falsely promise myself every night that I can get to bed before 4 tomorrow. Between a neglected bass, dusty novels, a brand new sketchbook and procrastinated responses to a facebook thread, I managed to get out to Active Surplus, where a crazy lady yelled at me in a mix of what sounded like Cantonese and English, but spelled out her insults instead of just saying them. Every purchase at that store is an impulse buy. I found a wood burner for $15 and rummaged my basement, which is a gold mine, for scrap wood to test it out. Here's what I came up with.
