IM NOT A GANGA ROOOOAAReh!
i've been making some attempt to do a 365 project to keep my awesome visual creativeness SLICK (i.e. it'll mean i hopefully won't get stuck in a rut or forget how to hold a pencil). i find creativity is like a muscle - it gets weak when you don't exercise it regularly - and as with any sort of exercise, it has to be interesting and challenging. sooooo...in case you didn't know (you? they? STOP THIS), art-based 365 projects are fairly popular, especially with photographers and the idea is to make an image per day. for a year. without giving up. pretty fat meaty slug of a challenge. akin to wrestling giant pigs in the lost forests of the western hemisphere perhaps? so i've been trying since september, taking photos or drawing or painting. i've almost got through a month and its bloody hard but i've got to grips with the camera i've had for a while so there's results already. most of the images i've done aren't worth looking at but there's the occasional picture (such as the one above) that i'm real darn excited about. also just discovered doppelganger translates as 'double goer'. other fun picture fact: i stepped on a massive slug after taking this photo; don't ever do that, they squidge between your toes. gross.
