Pigeon Process.. . . ./. ..//.

Today i have been very busy indeed.. ./. ./ Aside from all the other little projects i have going on all over the place, today i decided to document the process of creating a whole batch of Free Art Birds.. . ./.

Phase one.. . / This beautiful piece of hardboard i lifted from a skip last night.. . /. So first i had to see just how many pigeons i could get out of it.. .. 9 is the answer.

Next Chop them up with one of my favorite tools

a circular disk cutter.. . // mm mmm m

And then give them all a quick coat of black.. . Again my

favorite of all colors, And i know the knee jerk response

to that “But its not a color, its a shade!” that may be

in the natural world but when it comes to paint every

single shade / color needs pigment to give it said color,

in my case the color of that pigment is indeed black,

and as i stroke the black paint side to side i am coloring.. . . . /./. Its a color.. . ./.

Phase four, time to get dirty and finger paint .. .. . /.

Finally after the paint is sufficiently dry add the final touches in the form of eyes,beaks and sign off . . ./.

Tomorrow i will post close ups of each one of these little fellows before they go on their individual journeys.. . .. /. Some are going to Portsmouth tomorrow to find new homes, Some are going.. .well im not sure where yet it all depends on who wins the competition tomorrow on Facebook,.I will be running another give away to all those who share and like the links, names drawn from a hat at the end of the week.. . find out more here

And the rest are on a very long journey indeed, they are off to Tel-Aviv to take part in a free art give away in December  and you can find out more about that here.. /.

‘News Of The World’.. . . . /./. /.

Do you ever walk by the news stand and wonder ‘How the fuck can they get away with this?’ Are you ever in a queue minding your own business and forced to conceive something utterly discussing?  Do you ever think  ‘Can this Actually be real?’ Do you wonder like me what it would be like without them?

We all know the deal with these ‘Newspapers’ they’re jam packed full of half truths, bare faced lies and propaganda in order to make you think and fell a certain way. So why do they still thrive? Why are trees getting cut down and pockets lined? We have the internet which throws the doors wide open to free press, objective opinions and the ability to cross reference, it seems totally redundant that these scum sheets are still being pushed in to our lives.

See them for what they really are, Each day i will release another hate filled fear mongering rag riddled with hypocrisy and contradiction.. . ./. Enjoy/ The News Of The World… . . /./.
