My dear friend took some photos of me. It’s about as close to getting me naked as you’ll get.
How could you cancel this show? HOW COULD YOU CANCEL THIS SHOW? I have a heartache that’s lasted almost a decade over that decision.
Drawing things for my zine. It’s like a compendium of my awkward moments. Mainly just day-to-day refusals of door-knockers or the heartache when I can’t pat a dog that’s walking by.
Alpaca Pyramid by Cat Rabbit $95 each
I went to Ai-Ai Gasa at Fed Square today, and I just wanted to say how nice it is when someone you look up to in the industry is so, darn, lovely just as you imagine them to be.
Don’t Go by The Seven Seas $300
Give me your eyes, I need sunshine.
Researching NAVA (National Association for the Visual Arts) as part of my presentation today - and I keep finding myself looking for grants for overseas travel. They offer $5000 to four successful applicants a year for travel for educational purposes.
More and more every time I think about it, I want to do an artists’ Residency back in Iceland. I figure my application would stand out, in terms of NAVA, and while the $5000 would just cover flights and accommodation for the month, it’s been my dream for so, so long. I’m going to find it hard to wait the two more years to finish my degree, or until I can build a strong enough series of work, but it’ll give me time to really suss out my application and make it as strong as it can be.
Going back to Iceland is inevitable for me, but being able to be there in a working, creative environment would be a dream. I’ve never wanted something so badly in my life. This affinity I have with Iceland hasn’t subsided in the slightest, if anything it’s become greater since the 18 months I’ve been home. It’s hard when your life directs you to something that is so, so far away, and difficult to attain without such monetary assistance.
If anything could go right, in my whole life, I would want it to be this.

I feel too cute for homework today.

‘Ode To Tea’
I wrote this song in literally a minute, so this is by all means a non serious attempt at song writing. I’m just sitting here, absolutely freezing and in love with my tea because it is the only thing fulfilling me at this time. I think all you folks from Melbourne can agree.
Gosh darn it, you adorable wee thing.
