Week 27 - pot of gold

Not quite as refined as I hoped it would be..... I wanted the rainbow to elegantly decant to the yellow blob... its more of a veritable deluge.
Maybe its a good omen?!

I used to...... Week thirteen

I used to be afraid.

Tread Carefully...... week twelve

Its pretty obvious that I have been very tardy at keeping up with Annas amazing supply of beautiful photographs. I think we're on week 22 in 'real' time. I apologise profusely Anna.

Week 11 - Your Way is only ONE way

and the wrong way.
I have been seriously frustrated this week, to the point where it's actually empowered me. 
Has this happened to anyone else? At some point where something snaps and you say to yourself WHY AM I BOTHERING with you, you contribute nothing to the situation? Its liberating to not take on some one elses crap and decide to let the professionals deal with it.
Weight off my shoulders! Hope the elastic doesnt snap you too hard.

Week 10 - Enzo at Home

Its very very late I know, what week are we now? Week 14 or 15 I believe, but I am slowly catching up.....
When Anna sent me this photograph of her and The dog and Roberto at home, I already had Enzo on silkscreen for a job Readers Digest Australia.

Week Nine - Detritus

Anna took this photo in LA, but its a funny one, it could have been taken in any place I know well too, Sydney or London It very much reminds me of where I used to live in London with the sunshine of Sydney.
Maybe we are starting to live in a homogenised world.

Week Eight - Antonym

Week eight Antonym

I dont know why I chose that title, possibly because it's a great word which I heard for the first time in a very long time, yesterday. Possibly because I had to look it up in the dictionary too.

Week Seven

This is one of my favourites now.

Week four - the Pomegranate

The pomegranate is often a symbol of fertility and is used in treatments for cancer and diabetes.
It is also believed to be the fruit in the garden of Eden, not the apple, and hence brought about the downfall of man.
And as Anna says...
there is the life that comes out of death, or sweetness that comes out of pain and all of that crap, which i've found to be true in my own life at least... and there it is there -- radiating out but constrained, life and rot and perfect symmetry.

week one - LAX airport

Anna and I have decided to start the year with a challenge to each other, to keep us both on our toes and as a truly personal project that we have no preconceptions about. 
Who knows wether we will finish the year, how hard or easy it will be and how it will end (or will it go on?).
Anna gives me a photograph once a week and I have to personalise it by the next week. 
I presumed when we started to discuss this a while ago, that I would find it quite simple, a personal project that would be interesting but not too mentally taxing.
This was a presumption that was wrong. 
There is something very intimate about someone giving over an image they have thought about considerably, or a snippet of their view for a brief moment in time, a huge responsibility to retain that personality whilst not overwhelming with your own. 
I hope in the coming year, I do Annas photographs credit. She is not only a fantastic friend but a superb photographer and so its an honour to scribble over her images.
