needs a shaveand colorfacechick detail - her face; 2008

I never had any formal art instruction. I don't know what I'm drawing till it's done.
And even then I don't necessarily know. I almost always draw directly with ink.
This is different because I colored it in with cheapo colored pencils woefully lacking in colrs that aren't green,pink, or yellow. I've been mixing brush and pen.

3 Stacked Heads with Flat-top; 2008

I never had any formal art instruction. I don't know what I'm drawing till it's done.
And even then I don't necessarily know. I almost always draw directly with ink. The big exception was the Tarot cards in colored pencil on 3x5 index cards, then SmartBlurred (which I have since 'shopped hell out of and may post soon).

Anyhow, the top head is flat because I ran out room at the top of the page.

this is an open call for sound works for an outdoor surround sound
environment at the canaan 2008 music festival, takaka, new zealand.

the canaan music festival is a yearly event running from 31st december
to 3 jan.
The festival is in its 3rd year and is an eclectic mix of alt.rock and
electronic dance music that is family friendly.

whilst there have been an "ambient" zone in the past the current
curator wishes to encourage
the space as a place for presentation of sonic art and experimental
sound with an emphasis on multi -point systems
( with a nod to the ambient roots of the past curators)

Thus:
For the festival a 6-point discrete sound system will be used for
playback of works.

Artists are invited to submit works in stereo,quad, or 6-point
