annie clark
so i’ve given st. vincent‘s latest album, actor, a few listens and the consensus is that i like it. her voice is rather calming and sweet but she complements that with some fairly dodgy and even menacing guitars. i’m usually a bit baffled the display of an artist’s face on an album with nothing else but i’m a bit compelled to think that’s that part of the whole concept as well. people who know how they look (read: beautiful people showing that they know they’re beautiful) usually garner a groan out of me but even this seems a little more than that; more than the not just a pretty face idea too. it’s a trap! haha. anyway, i thought i’d experiment with watercolours and this is one of the more palatable results. coincidentally enough, one of the characters she plays in her songs talks about being a watercolour painting washing away. give actor a listen for something different. i will keep on doing so, looking for more arrested development references. annie clark in moleskine.

antirorschach - daria

it’s probably not the most original idea but ever since i started ignoring boundaries created by the the folds / bindings in my sketchbooks i don’t think i’ve consciously used them as part of the concept. hell, this anti-rorschach (bad label?) concept itself probably isn’t original at all. i’ll give it a few more goes and see what the results look like. maybe you will too. daria werbowy, anti-rorschached, in moleskine.

nikola tamindzic's photos

nikola is the photographer behind i’m not much of a photographer but i do have an appreciation for shooting at night, which he seemed to have a talent for (among other things). the subjects of his nightlife photography are pretty crazy and i suspect that the photos wouldn’t’ve been the same had someone else done them. some of his photos at random, in moleskine.

memory god

while i’m not quite losing my hair, my memory seems to be fading at an alarming rate. perhaps that’s why i have some strange interest in these creatures. they’re probably smarter than i am on average too, relatively speaking. it’s sad to me that their only natural predators are humans. loxodonta africana in moleskine.

sisters card

here’s my sorry attempt at graphic design. it was just a card i created based on a drawing i did of my sister…for my sister’s birthday. it was a rush job (no excuse though, ha ha) but she liked it…that’s all that matters, right?!!?? it was fun trying to come up with something though. i suppose that’s further proof that maybe i would enjoy doing something else for a living…or on the side, ha ha.

santorinian walkway

this place is definitely one of the most beautiful places i’ve ever been too, if only briefly. i’m guessing that few people actually live in the parts with the most stunning vistas and it must be damn expensive to vacation there but man is it nice! santorini in moleskine.


i actually have a hankering to post some photos but i’m too lazy to sort through and find a decent one. soooooo……this’ll have to do for now, ha ha. the acropolis is a cool place, even if it’s 37 C. athens is….a bit dirtier…looking…than i thought it would be but the history of it all is just craziness. when we visited the olympic stadium, some people got a good right yelling for entering the grounds to take pictures. good times. one of the buildings (no, not the parthenon) in the acropolis of athens, in moleskine.
