hey! i’ve been a bit slooooooow recently because i dislocated AND fractured my shoulder bone last Thursday… i made a noise a bit like this ~ BBBBBBBBBBLLLLLEEEEEEARRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHNGNGNGFNGNGNGFFFFKKFKKFKKFKKF ~ and then had to go to hospital. it was quite literally WHACK. but the liquid morphine was nice 😉 😉 😉
anywho as i type this using my wrong hand, i want to tell you about a superb young Jack-the-lad called Phil Carney. actually i have no idea how old Phil is, but i do know he’s a gentle man and also, an artist man. here’s Phil in his own words ~
‘I’ve been greatly influenced by the ideals of the Dada movement and, mainly for the themes and images, of the 40’s and 50’s film noirs and the pulp writing of that period, in particular its hedonistic life styles of fast drinking and faster romances. I strive to continue these themes in the medium of collage, in a medium this free I hope to show the lust of this period and in the fashion of noir, ultimately the loss.’
