Foot Fetish…

I get a few out of the ordinary commissions now and again, heres 3 i’ve just finished for a customer who is starting her own reflexology and massage business – a foot chart, treatment voucher and leaflet all completed in Photoshop CS4. This is the sort of thing i used to do years and years ago when i was at college studying Graphic Design… i say studying… was more like playing pool, eating chips, having pretend sword fights with fellow students and then the inevitable mad panic on the final day when the work had to be handed in! Happy days!

Twitch, Grind & Splodge

Just had to share these wonderful toys with you i found on a website. Meet Twitch the Raccoon, Grind the Rabbit and Splodge the Hedgehog, all come with their very own plastic bodybag, death certificates and toe tags.

Although i’m an animal lover i also like to have a laugh and not take everything so seriously and i think these would make a great gift for kids (and grown up kids like me!), which is why i shall be asking Santa for one this christmas :o)

Lazy bum…

“Procrastination refers to the deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite such behavior as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting and/or completing any task or decision. Procrastination may result in stress, a sense of guilt and crisis, severe loss of personal productivity, as well as disapproval by others for not meeting responsibilities or commitments. These feelings combined may promote further procrastination. While it is regarded as normal for people to procrastinate to some degree, it becomes a problem when it impedes normal functioning. Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying psychological disorder.”

Phew, its not me to blame then for my lack of posts and artwork, its my ‘psychological disorder’ which I suffer from! I knew all along it wasnt my fault for being a lazy bum. But anyway, im back in the driving seat now ready to shift it into 2nd gear (cough). I have been working… honestly… no really…. but decided to work on 2 pieces of artwork at the same time and its taking longer than expected…. Nearly nearly finished the Beyonce caricature which i’ll post up shortly and hopefully…. hopefully i will have a new black and white of horror star ‘Vincent Price’ ready for Sunday. Damn my pschological disorder!!!

O… and had to do a couple of revisions for the Kelley caricature i posted last week, altered the name on the belt so it read from top to bottom and also the red V on her neck is now a black V. Click on the image for a larger view of the final final finished version…

O… and also in the world of art… heres a picture of 5000 nude Australians at the Sydney Opera House.

Looks like a lot of white bums to me…
