Light Box Animation: Test

I made this a couple of weeks ago (check this post with a picture to see how it was done), and have finally finished it, for 20sec's it took awhile, and I've learnt allot about the process through trial and error.

I got the idea from ChannelFrederator's Drinking and Drawing.

I would be great to do this with some other people in the future of drinks.

Eat the City

Bernadette Trench-Thiedeman
Eat the City
Architectural models and various plant species

I saw this at Platform the other day its a gallery in a public space underground between flinders street station and flinders street, well it's actually under flinders street.

I always like venturing down here, you can always find something interesting and some quiet in the hustle of the city. This work by
Bernadette Trench-Thiedeman caught my eye with a mixture of architectural models planted with some edible and non-edible plants. The instalion with go over a 26 day period.

I'm posting more pictures that I took from this exhibition on Streets of Melbourne blog.

My New Fav Band

Wow. I was feeling down, then after looking for tracks for this international indie show I find this. It makes me want to go out to an indie night and dance, then find some cool indie chick just to dance with (nothing else, just dancing). How eighties is this, or even early 90's given the clothes, and how Duran Duran esc. Check it out, do yourself a favor.

Light Box Animation

Gee I haven't posted here for awhile. I'm now scheduling posts over at Streets Of Melbourne which is a great feature of Blogger. Which I'm going to start using for this website. What I'm planning on doing is doing regular post's for drawing, about 3 times a week. I really find that I need goals and deadlines with my artwork, which gives me something to work and achieve, otherwise I may never show them to anyone and will slowly stop producing any artwork. I haven't had an exhibition for a while, the last was back in 2005 in Japan, but don't feel that what I'm doing now is suitable for galleries to display and feel that the whole gallery system is not suitable anymore. I get more people viewing my work online than people coming into galleries than I've ever had.

Back to the picture up the top. I bought a light box on Saturday at an art supply shop in Melbourne CBD, I've seen some people online do animation via a light box and looks fun. Especially with other adding to the work. I'm finding it very quick to make cells, although I'll have to scan them in and position them when I make the animation. I'll post the finished product here, and on YT. Hopefully I do some more and get some other people involved too.
