i’m sitting in the kitchen, it’s half three in the afternoon. my brothers are in the next room on the playstation and i’m right here, on the laptop, with wordpress up, listening to music. the aroma of dinner being prepared is floating throughout the room. there’s a lot on my mind currently and i thought just writing a new blog post would make a good distraction. so, what about another lately post? i haven’t written one since before christmas and i’m currently bored anyway.
-i’ve taken up painting. the process of creating a picture has really been quite cathartic to be honest, so i’m enjoying it. i painted these disks (tributes to albums: twentyønepiløts, vessel, blurryface and trench (i have yet to think of one for regional at best)) for my bedroom wall. now i want to paint like, sixty more to cover the whole wall…
-i also painted this jar (oop it’s twentyønepiløts themed again…). it’s actually surprisingly easy to paint on glass, as long as the paint is acrylic and you spray the jar with something like hairspray afterwards (to stop the paint from flaking off). now i’m so obsessed with painting, i want to paint everything i own. right now, i’m honestly so desperate to paint my high-tops.
-speaking of shoes, i did transform these super old running shoes. i was literally just messing with two black and purple sharpie markers and coloured in my shoes, i guess…. have you ever painted/drawn on your shoes?
-here’s some of the artsy stuff i made for a few friends recently – some envelope art and some lyrical art based off their favourite songs. but, because of covid and quarantine, i can’t walk to the post office so much anymore. so, i guess those are the last letters i’ll be writing for awhile now *sighs*.
-i’ve been trying to work on phone photography too. it’s really something i want to improve, although i prefer taking photos with my actual camera, using the phone is fun too. there’s a few shots i took lately (before quarantine).
here’s some of the very random songs i’ve been listening to a lot over the last month:
one more light - linkin park note to self - ben rector november - sleeping with sirens no time to die - billie eilish six feet under - billie eilish afraid of heights (reprise) - billy talent taxi cab - twentyønepiløts die alone - finneas circles - pierce the veil human. - judah & the lion brothers in arms (from mad max: fury road) - junkie xl end of the line (from the winter soldier) - henry jackman
and that’s it, i guess. i’ve also been sketching a ton lately, but i intend to do a proper art dump real soon – stay tuned for that! what have you been up to lately? started any new hobbies to stay occupied during the quarantine? favourite song(s) as of late?
