O! -RIANDO! Oh yeah and youse should come to this if you're in Brizzle, it's at the 8 Week Gallery in Stokes Croft and features new work each day by the lovely Riando sisters and co.

Maybe if we both lived in a different world
(womanizer, womanizer, womanizer, womanizer)
It would be all good,
And maybe I could be your girl
But I can't, 'cause we don't,
Me n Friando, totally profesh.

Oh God, If I don't take myself seriously, who will...? Hahaha.

'Don't use your brain when your body makes the splash'

What's up bitches? Ahem...

I'm working on a 2 page spread for XEROGRAFIX II, a screenprinted arts newspaper made by Vicky Samuel ( I was in issue one with my Jay Z strip that I've used in a few things ( unprolific? Moi...?). The theme of this issue is the UK, so my comic is based on the controversial official investigation into Bloody Sunday which was released last year after a 10 year investigation the initial Widgery 'whitewash'. The incident which took place in 1972 began with a civil rights protest in Londonderry ( 'Derry' to nationalists) which ended in riots and then disaster and the loss of 13 civilian lives ( and one death after the shooting, possibly as a result of injuries received on the day) as a result of army fire.

I thought this would be an appropriate topic following the recent protests in London. I didn't actually attending the protest recently, but was working on Oxford Street at the time. Just a reminder that it's all fun and games till someone gets hurt. Also, as I'm a bit of a plastic paddy,- my parents are from Nor'n Ireland but I was raised in England, this topic is pretty important to me.

Completing the pictures is a bit of a bitch due to detail, having finally condensed the events of the day got THAT to sort out. But ahhhhweeelll only like, 12 frames to go...

Yeah I reckon I'll be going the old London Zine Symposium next weekend also should be a larf and that. Hey isn't it sunny(?) I told my housemate I'd help with his animation, need to get on it. Seriously, don't know how he has the patience to do that all day. I'm learning photoshop off Cliff my other housemate as well. I realise I should know how to use it after a whole load of art education but I always got other people to do it for me hahaha...ha. Anyway I'll give him props coz I know he'd like that. Check out the beyonce remix on his site in particular there ya go.

xoxoxo fuck you

not really
