Various Problems to do with Mood and Water
diversion sign
I'm feeling quite crap. My mood is down and I've misplaced my motivation. I've spent an awful lot of time on my bed recently, which is never a good sign. Is it the weather? The approaching winter darkness? I don't know. Things feels grim and grey.

All my artwork looks childish and stupid to me, and I'm wondering if it isn't a waste of time.

The flat has a few water problems: a couple of damp patches, a leak under the sink, and the skylight in the kitchen is dripping water when it rains heavily (like it did last night when we had a thunderstorm here). I'm not in the mood to talk to the landlord at the moment, but will do later.

Here's a couple of pictures I took of the police station being demolished. This building was easily the ugliest building in the town: a concrete monstrosity with all the charm of a giant cheese grater. Very happy to see it go. Lots of people were taking photos. Smashed buildings are mysteriously fascinating.

in case it needs to be said

your artwork is brilliant and I continue to look forward to seeing what you produce - be it pen & paper, photo or papier-maché

if you'd like more feedback I can oblige

I just thought it was obvious how great - and INSPIRING - this all is and didn't want to bore you

I too find smashed buildings fascinating - those distended arrays of extruded metal coming out of the ferro-concrete look like veins or nerve complexes and there's something sculptural (and I think tragic) about broken conrete joists laid out in the rubble

I look forward to your cityscape with the candy-coloured Vlad Tatlin-scale cheesegrater installed ...and more long-underwear types

Thank you. That's exactly what I needed to hear. I will now shake myself and go finish the Superman figure I was working on. Pics tomorrow, probably.

by the way - if i could glower at you in a friendly way in text i would - i can think of no words that can actually equate to such a mixed facial expression.

have been thinking of what it might be that i might say since reading this post early #yesterday - but being crap i got nowhere (and i'm not good at the sort of thing steve said)

we do think of you over there (the kids do as well) - hope you're doing OK.

oh - & it's the noise when there's pulling down these things as well isn't it? - the roaring machinery & the scraping & popping of the concrete.

I love these photos - there's something so appealing about ruins, and ruins-in-progress.
