getting a little bit distorted and waify and multiple limbs and topless. and blank stare. can it be a 'stare' without pupils?

out the window on the third floor of GOMA
gallery of modern art in Brisbane.
so many lines!
draw properly v. miss the plane home. hmm.
(p.s. this was also outside the Simryn Gill exhibition and i now like her a lot. and they had all her gallery booklets and i looked at every single page and it was obsessive and compulsive and enjoyable.)

drawing on some cds.
tom waits - alice
(from david tenniel's drawing of alice. and the fish that is on the actual cd cover. *pulls back curtain. greets fish*)
camille - le fil

train station update. mostly blind contour on found myki receipts.
photocopied and inked.
buckled the paper. as it should.finn in the car.
a fence and a fence shadow.
in a tower.
i didn't feel like mentally flipping the image as i etched it, so it is in reverse.
drypoint copper etching of 'in a tower'.
part of daylesford adventures with finn.
perhaps a kitchen etching to follow.
i was trying to get tone in the first one
and not in the second one.
the second one is all about melted cheese arms
and there are also two hidden faces in shadows and knuckles.
trying to draw a building while walking. needed a few pauses.
note perspective change across the page. ha.

uhhhhm. drawing on the train home.
i was thinking about hairlines.
