  7. and with colours!halp: anyone who wants to click on the envelopey thingOR e-mail lizzie.a.nagy on the gmailOR fb message to my nameabout callouts, zines, comic societies, something you’re writing, or your mate, shows, competitions etc ——— that’d be of huge, huge assistance. Flying Arts has a Prizes/Awards deadline calendar that they update rigorously - it’s like trying to learn a new subject from the teacher’s handbook: good, useful, but maybe not the most enlightening first approach.I’m starting to carry around dozens of works now and am champing to contribute illustration to an initiative, or project, all i need is a bit of demonstrated reassurance that said project will happen. I’m hell lazy with my PR, all I use is tumblr but in terms of local (to Sydney/Australia) illustration I’m basically under a rock.CHEERZ!

  8. heres lena in front of the pitz from that same weekend i was talking about before. they nabbed a big box of leftover pastries from a bakery it was the bees knees.
Overrun played. i think perhaps it was the same one where klangberg and ache played together too!a major takeaway here is not just that lenas here unposing purposeful and lovelybut the looking part of drawing is cool to get a good look at all the amazing bodies that people have. How is it now occurring to me that everyone i like - even, would voluntarily go into a room with for purposes of sharing the same interest, has a really really gorgeous physique too? what the heck else could i have been looking at? it must have been the pastries that were the distraction #perv

    I still feel deep shame about being perceived as ‘too female’ in many ways, and it’s an area that I attempt to address and challenge every day. I’ve never felt truly female, because I’ve never felt like I could dress like a lady with confidence, or feel pretty, or play heart-explodey-dreamy love songs, or wear lipstick and have sex appeal. I’ve had to spend hours and hours redefining what ‘being a woman’ is to me, and addressing the feelings of shame and inadequacy that surround it all.

    oh boy do i relate to this so hard or what. read the whole article though.

  12. worked for ages on this drawing, from when erica freas came to town and it was such a great weekend to be in Sydney I set about taking photos for the purpose of drawing. So I started this but set it aside and finished it last night with the fervour of recognition of an old project with new eyes. Something about it doesnt work though. It doesnt look like any of the people that it’s of, nor the sunday morning relax, or how summer was so young it felt like we’re all perverts. With the park, which is normally convivial and friendly - some friends came along with their twin daughters, who were running around, looking a bit bemused when their dad went up a tree - no trace of that comes accross, the greenery looks like you could impale yourself on it. Whats with Hitchcock Tucker. Erica has cyborg face. I didn’t even finish the clouds on the right hand side.

  13. this will be what i work at for a while because drawing’s not really going ahead.

  14. aaaaa aaaaaaaaa aaaaa check it out!the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes 7” is out, you can get it in or out of China off Genjing records, and, aaaaa-and they printed these sick T-shirts so you can get one of those too!!! There are a butt-ton of wonderful interviews and media about this release - check out Scottish Mike’s interview with singer Sharon. It’s also worth checking out Thruoutin’s music [the guy I’m reblogging this from], who has an experimental, mostly peaceful sounding music/not-music/folk instruments/not-instruments performance that he does all over China, based in Beijing. He plays that Chinese mandolin thing with the zigzag fretboard and also… sound that comes from electrically plugged in things (hmm that describes nothing but you may know what i mean)Anyway I did an interview with Genjing but as far as I know it hasn’t been published yet, but it asks a bit about where the art came from for TCAKH record. So I’ll recount from there:

8. Was the artwork at all influenced by the record itself? How important is it for the visuals to match the vibes of the music? How does that whole process usually go down?
I played the bandcamp through the house in Sydney as I worked, marking out the meter with dots, using an early morning-ish palette for melodies that sound like they bring in morning. I ended up using an old photograph of my sister from when we were playing in the street in front of the house where we grew up, about to move out. She was holding the cat and I just gave her the cats head too. There’s a fresh, smokey, eucalyptus-haze quality to the guitar work and singing that reminds me of the good air in Pennant Hills (not quite like Shanghai). In this case it was easy to co-ordinate the sound with the visuals and I got a pretty free licence which was fantastic. Though sometimes with punk rock music, like Sydney’s Palmar Grasp who I worked with more recently, where the band have an agenda to communicate specific, politically challenging things, I need to be told what to do - it becomes easy to miss the mark.
