Level 3.2

…remember these?….

…they moved on to be….

…and….

…they eventually became…

….repurposed as a New Zealand Music Month vid’ for Dee’s wonderfully catchy tune, “shit fly”…written to celebrate the delightful cloud of short-lived flying things that hover round the outhouse out at Aramoana….

…a fitting end for nearly 100 brooches presented in a custom built carry case for a pre-xmas market thing that didn’t happen….

…(damn…thought I had a bunch of photos of the production lay out…flies all arranged on trays with the “colour guide” post it notes that I used to ensure that none of the flies have the same colour scheme)…

…er…

…here’s some post video shots…..

…maybe they’ll have another market this coming Xmas….

…if we’re allowed out by then….

Post Hols Photo Heap

…started a few things on holiday…

…a pile of these…(actually one of series of piles)….

…and couple of those…

…got a bit obsessed with “faces” on my palette….

…(they’re looking at me, I swear)….

…Dee came up mid-week and made a poster for her upcoming gig….

…(the one on the left is the one that will be used)…

…(see you there)…

…saw a goat….

…saw it again at night…

…Dee phoned in the sighting….

…(cell phone coverage exists at the water tank)….

…some of the above images are elongated because I may have had the camera switched to vid’ for a day or so after filming this…

,,,bit of a grey day on Friday….

…so we went on our traditional Central Otago charity shop run….

…did rather well…

…as is explained in this short documentary….

….spent the fine days removing bumblebees from the house…

…(…sign says “bug”…but battery died before second shot and didn’t want the wee fellow to be under glass too long)…

….and savoured the fine evenings enjoying the fragrance of the apple blossom…(or is it plum?)….

…all in all a bloody good holiday….

…(did I mention my Pitcairn Island carved flying fish?)…

21 Years Behind The Brush

…ooo…this is the first page I did with a brush…Scan 781

…actually it’s got some pen work in it as well, but my confidence that the brush was a good idea took a couple of years to “take”…

…can’t remember the context for the idea…

…or which publication it appeared in…

….(possibly a capping mag’)….

Flys With That

Scan 619

….”Fly Buys” are a points reward system (useless stuff you didn’t know you needed instead of instore discount) that may not extend beyond the shores of New Zealand….

…if you are struggling to understand the “pathos”, count the flys…

…nope, no prizes for the correct answer.

 

…(…oh…. and if you have a few moments for a bit of a read….
