Navigators Art & Performance are back in the water and making waves with a striking new exhibition and live event. A Love Supreme or No Future? Are Punk & Jazz at odds or two sides of a coin? Each can be controversial, uncompromising, confrontational. The best of each is groundbreaking, pushing conventions to the limit. Both can hurt. Both can heal. PUNK/JAZZ explores genres, contrasts and connections through music, painting, drawing, collage, print, words, sculpture and photography.

More head studies in Krita. I think of this kind of thing as digital sketchbook work. Space seemed to be the way to go for experimenting with a brighter colour palette. Related 2023-08-19 Head Practice Girl Study in Krita
Head practice. I’ve been having a tough time with hair-do’s and beards. I can get absolutely lost in them sometimes and never feel like the painting is finished. Much like real hair do’s I suppose, you’ve got to set a time limit on how long you can fiddle around with it and then just move on and get out the house.

I ended up taking this Joe Strummer sketch to a painting with Paynes Grey Watercolour and white Gouache. Unfortunately the paper got all chewy, which is unusual because this was on some very decent Hahnemuhle stuff. You may not be able to tell from the scan. There’s some parts I’d like to fix but I got to a point where it feels like I overcooked it, loaded it with too much water and indecision at some point.
I used to think having Emacs on a phone was a bit much..but recently I’ve just started using Emacs and Org mode for nearly everything.. There’s not a great selection of apps on Android for accessing Org files, the best solution to me was to just get Emacs with it’s fully fledged Org on mobile. The newish GUI Android Emacs app is a bit strange and I swiftly uninstalled it. The Termux terminal version however, works much better.
