Corduroy suit

The smell of burnt air and the heat of rosy cheeks filled me with need. Here you see some of my doodles and drawings on fabric. It is quite incredible to have access to this possibility and it has only been 2 years in the waiting.

I sneezed and caught an eyelash between my teeth.

Like an Avalanche

Not really like an Avalanche, just really really enjoying an album that came out 10 years ago and realized I only knew one song from it, truly unfortunate. I'm sure you know Frontier Psychiatrist, too.

Tighten your buttocks, and pour juice on your chin.

Hair food

I used to wish I had coarse hair like my Barbados-Canadian childhood best friend. I was amazed at how one day her hair would be short, filled with colourful and bulbous accessories and the next she'd have long braids down to her butt.

I wanted to head dance like her, stomp like her and play super mario kart with her.

Sometimes the affinity still strikes me unexpectedly.

Pressed the "A" button for the last time today and was #468 in waiting to pay for the very last school fee to pay for, for now.. I might get some more schoolin' later but right now I'm not down with the institution. I'm going to let life fill my head a little bit and some libraries and used bookshop scavengering fill my thoughts.

One thing I shall definitely miss are the art classes, and how close they made me feel to the art world. I felt that closeness today when I preferred to sneak a peek at a Nelson Henricks exhibition being shown at the Library building's gallery instead of sitting in a plastic chair with other drones for a good half hour.

I ended up sitting in on a 4 projection video installation called "Unwriting" which is inspired by writer's block and had some hands clapping, electric guitar playing, typewriter keys being tapped in a musical sequence, pencil tips breaking and telephones.

Reminded me of how much I like video art and miss project critiques..

I know what I want to say, but I don't say what I mean. I listen to you speak and my thoughts are coming in fast. When I make typos, I can feel my fingers touching the wrong keys, when I say the wrong thing, I can feel the mistake on my tongue and on my lips.

n. pl. ge·stalts or Ge·stalts or ge·stalt·en or Ge·stalt·en (-shtältn, -shtôltn, -stältn, -stôltn)

A physical, biological, psychological, or symbolic configuration or pattern of elements so unified as a whole that its properties cannot be derived from a simple summation of its parts.

The Gestalt effect refers to the form-forming capability of our senses, particularly with respect to the visual recognition of figures and whole forms instead of just a collection of simple lines and curves.

the tip of my tongue is numb.

Other concerns

I smell like vanilla and banana, a most perfect lotion combination that I would have never known existed if it weren't for an amazing pen-pal. My drawing has been scarce but I should really remember to never stop and keep developing, I have big dreams which require quite some work.

In other news, a design project my friend and I collaborated on and submitted to a competition has been shortlisted from a total of 300 submissions! The competition is OneOff's Food Design Competition 6 and our project is called "Slo". It'll be part of an exhibition starting in Torino, Italy later this month (where the winners of the 3 different categories will be announced) and then will be shown at the London Metropolitan University in November.

I was hoping to go to Italy but unfortunately I am not so fortunate (despite having played a considerable role in having the opportunity at all as well as some important idea/work credit -tooting my own horn due to slight bitterness) and will have to hope to go to London instead. Which is just as exciting but it would have been better if both involved were to go together (and by the looks of the official invitation the Italy exhibition looks like it's going to be a massive deal). It's an irk and a pinch I'll have to get over.
