this too shall pass
June 26, 2011
technology isnt something im particuarly comfortable with. so the fact that im doing a degree in interactive media [where the focus is often on producing a digital artefact] maybe wasnt the best decision i ever made. however, it is the path i undertook and i have to just get on with it. however, all the code and scripting is destroying my soul, so i took a little time out to catch up with friends, do some painting, and watch a zombie movie or two.
i came across the phrase ‘this too shall pass’ on tumblr a few days ago; i dont want to get all emo, but it resonated with me in a few aspects of my current life. this picture was painted while contemplating such things..

the 2008 zombie movie ‘colin‘ is one of my favourite takes on the genre in recent years. it follows the lead character [colin] as he is turned, and his subsequent interaction wth the places and people who were a part of his breathing life. it is such a change in perspective on the traditional zombie flick, and has some great ideas in it, although is painfully slowpaced at times.
i bought the dvd a few days ago, and thought that the cover had a nice graphic look to it. this piece below is a sketch/painting [aprox 20mins] copied from the dvd case…
