Their Hanging me Tonight







Seeing as Luke posted his, a put some life back in the blog I thought follow up with mine. Based on the Marty Robins song "Their hanging me tonight" I like the first and las page pretty much, not mad on the second at all, might re work it!

Bathory - Woodwoman Comic



Resting by my fire. Looking deep into it's flames.
My mind must have been somewhere else
Far beyond these plains.
I am suddenly aware of a pair of eyes staring at me.
I turn around and behold the most ugly thing I have seen.

The woman standing in the glade like a shadow in the night
Points her wretched finger at me with a wretched smile
And she asks me in a voice that sounds as if it's been so long
since she spoke, if I seek magic then I should come along

I'm but a man. Mortal, a man.
But she leaves no footprints in the snow
Still I follow on to where she is going
For she has promised me magic if I follow on.

She takes me to a part of these woods few have ever seen.
Where the sun surely won't reach
Still the ground ominously gleams.
She says she's seen me coming and that she knows where I'll go.
But before I leave she says there is this one thing I should know.

She offers me the ability to take a fatal wound.
Every cut by sword or spear will be absorbed by her tree-womb.
The magic will remain until it's time for me to part with this mortal world.
And all she'll claim is my young heat.

I'm but a man. Mortal, a man.
And I'll need all the help that I can get.
So I give my heart to the woman of the dark
With or without it...my life is not over yet.

Wing of bat and lizard's eye.
Dust of a star fallen from the sky.
Tears of a virgin, and the cum of a god.
Thirteen drops of an infant's blood
A twist of a cat's spit and oil of the moon
Stir for a while and very soon
A salve to be applied upon the chest
close to where the heart beats strong.

No pains will occur when her hand is pushed into my flesh
She'll slowly draw my living heart out of my open chest.
She'll place my heart in the pit of the snake and behold the years go by.
Hers to keep from the moment when the time has come for me to die.

My comic for the class. I'm not happy with a lot of it, but some of it's okay.

All acrylics and sometging I'm not used to so it was good practice!

And this one...


This was alot of fun, really had a blast with this one, mixed media pieces are always fun to attempt, bout 75% happy with this, next time hopefully I'll knock it out of the park.


Catching up!

Cuchulainn vs Ferdia



A painting-in-progress. This the so-far unfinished birthday present for my father. May as well post something.

The painting depicts the epic duel between Cuchulainn and his best friend, Ferdia, in what might have been a cautionary tale about the scheming and machinations of women. I personally like how it's looking so far, and I seem to have gotten over my phobia of applying green anywhere on the human body in a painting.

Kudos to my bro', Neil who gave me a great tip in brush strokes.

Monday Mindache must consult the chicken bones.




my ps3 is having an identity crisis. it thinks its a ps2. it won't play ps3 games or blu-rays but plays ps2 games and dvds no bother. its also very sensitive, turning on when someone walks past it. maybe it has an inferiority complex, couldn't take the pressure.

my phone is a prick. it turns on and off at will, deletes and rearranges my messages and takes photos only when it feels like it. it tries to unsettle me sometimes by flickering its button lights brightly for hours, like horror film lighting or something. dick.

without warning, my laptop shuts down when it overheats. i have no say in this. it has the courtesy to save my stuff before shutdown, but if i dare ask it to reactivate before its ready i'm met with blunt refusal and loss of saved stuff, like its saying "well, if you're gonna be like that...".

my dvd player won't acknowledge the existence of some of my dvds. others it won't play, stating plainly that they're "wrong". art is subjective, douchebag.

my mp3 player was installed with consciousness stem cells and attuned to my frequency by buddhist monks, so it knows just the right songs for my moods and senses when i desire a particular one. thats why its a zen.


THING STUFF:
- gangsta rapper. gang rappist.
- BP claim ownership of the wind and declare war on the ocean. all refreshing summer breezes are now taxed.
- large hadron collider proves to be fruitless: sold to disneyland paris as new ride.
- tom cruise comes out: "yes, i am not funny."
- benicio del toro: too fat and rich, lives in a palace made of golden ice-cream and eats money both for sustenance and sexual kicks.
- disney corporation grants wish to a bratz doll and transforms her into a real girl. selena gomez's album is in stores now.
- pope admits to past indescretions: "c'mon, it was the seventies, everyone was doing it!"

Y-F-O



This week I are been mostly making these big letters spelling "YFO". They were for my band's photo shoot. We did it Thursday night. The letters are made of backing board/ card. Just under 2 feet high, 17 cm deep. Speaking of the band, we've been selected to play the Guinness "Our Thursdays" showcase, this thursday the 29th July. It's text vote so the more people who go the better chance we have of getting through to the final. It's on in The Cuckoo's Nest, Tallaght. Free in. Door's are 8.30pm. Come along if you can, should be a fun night!

I do realise I just used my slot here to shamelessly promote our gig, I actually didn't intend to, I merely wanted to show something new I had done, but I'm still going to hit the "Publish Post" button without changing any of the text. Got a problem with tha'?!

Had a blast with this, its Animal the crazy drummer from the Muppets, I did it for my mate who is also a crazy drummer, he recently bought a van for gigin and camping etc and wanted me to put something together for him, the dude loves this guy so thats reason enough for me! A small insight into the process of the painting, nothing fancy at all and I don't really paint but it was good practice, sorry bought the crap pics, I own an awful camera! Slan!!!

Monday Mindache's hypothesis is that in a closed system all people tend towards idiocy.

Here's the pitch: It's an irish rom-com. Richard Gere plays a wealthy farmer who owns two pigs, a horse and some chickens. He happens upon a poor but vibrant peasant whore and becomes enamoured. He woos her with fresh chicken eggs and thrill rides on his cart, capturing her heart and whisking her off to a dream cottage with glass in the windows. Brenda Fricker is on board.




... and that's why you never teach yourself lessons.

Shine on you arsecandles!

The land of Wallies

Then Wally found the twelfth scroll and saw the truth about himself. That he was just one Wally among many. He saw too that Wallies often lose things. For he himself had lost one shoe. And as he looked for his shoe, he discovered that Wizard Whitebeard was not his only fellow traveller. There were now eleven others - one from every place he had been to - who had joined him one by one along the way. So now (oh loyal followers of Wally!) find the real Wally and help him find his missing shoe. and there, in the land of Wallies, may Wally live happily ever after.

acrylics on canvas, a page from Martin Handford's Where's Wally books, cheap beer, classy weed and mdma. name: the land of the wallies. theme: discovering one's true self, and recognizing kindred souls. personal purpose: using up surplus energy, experimental meditation, to see what happens, total douchery.

it is the unexpected things that make life both utterly heartbreaking and profoundly uplifting.

peace to all you reservoirs of godly magnificence! tap into it!
