For any of you who do not know what this is, you have your work cut out for you this evening. Spiritualized first album Lazer Guided Melodies is a highly recommended auditory experience that can be enjoyed through repeated listenings over regulated intervals.* Merry Christmas Robert Nagy. May I forever be haunted by not testing the font size properly before starting to paint on the letters.
Throughout my time at Fleming college, I have contributed several articles to an independent magazine distributed at the campus. All of the articles are written by students for students. Ontop of contributed botanically inquisitive articles and poetry, I decided to leave a lasting impression on the very last issue to be published by designing a new logo for the cover.
Below is a link to the article that I wrote in the magazine. Since this is art-time and not story-time, I will leave it at your discretion if you would enjoy reading it. It is entitled Outside the Hops and explores the hops plant and it’s relationship with people, examining it’s significance as a medicinal herb, it’s taxonomy and it’s importance within the history of brewing.

I haven’t written anything in a while, except this strange collection, in response to a rather unsual and remarkably significant evening.
“Excuse me, but you ruined my outfit. Please get a room, I was laughing so hard I spilled beer all over my pants.”
Disposable plastic cups
Dispose of each-other?
Although the evening took me over, despite the chemistry within my blood, don’t forget what I told you. Because for a night you took me over, and I mean everything that I said.
Inspired by the sudden flux of posts by all the lovely members of this fun-time-collective, I decided to start posting some art-icles that I have made throughout my academic career here in Lindsay (A location, not a person, that is just rude)
Attending an educational institution results in a remarkably strong increase in creative energy, at least for me, likely because I am pretty much over stimulated all the time and am forced hitherto produce art. Good thing for this good blog. Click for Hi-Res!
Questions for the viewers (answer in comments if desired)
1. What is happening to nature on the side of the art where digital man is holding his digital phone?
2. How is nature oriented? Is it positioned correctly, turned on it’s side or upside down?
3. Those stupid scrambly blackberry squares that now thoroughly saturate magazines are amazing for art. This is not a question, just a statement.
That’s right, today is a double post! Unlike the main contributors of Art-Time-Collective, I live far enough north where the effects of global warming have not yet completely eliminated snow from the winter landscape. Hense, the opportunity to make snowmen in the temperate world may soon be coming to an end. In foresight of this urgency, snowmen like Samuel here might soon become an endangered species. Some may say that they already have…
Ingredients: -11 degree weather + water + various bottle caps + one burned out lightbulb + 2 unidentified sticks = Samuel.
This tasty art was produced during the first Art Jam of the 2012 semester at Fleming College. I really like how the skin and the seed in the center turned out. The flesh is a little too vibrant, but I used what I had to work with. Click for hi-res!
This is actually an older piece of mine that I neglected to post for a reason that currently escapes me. Fellow fart-timer Kaleidoscopeflux brought this to my attention and I have since taken appropriate measures (as seen below) to make this piece available to the internet. I like this one too, Ionatan.

Unlike warmth, coldness is not a state of being or possession, but is rather a descriptive term meant to convey a general lack of warmth. Is therefore loneliness not a state of being or possession but rather a noun invented to describe a lack of love? Click for Hi-res!

I have largely neglected an area of my artistic capabilities that in the eyes of most consider my most proficient area. More will be uploaded as soon as they are mentally downloaded. These organisms do not exist but are based in their relation and systematic ordering to exant species.

The first ever unofficial art jam took place on December 27th and produced some pretty nifty pieces of creativity. I would like to have these on a regular basis and hopefully they will increase with popularity amongst the art-time-collective community and outwards. Until this happens, here are two works that Erika Fung and myself created using paintbrushes impregnated with acrylic paint.
Untitled 3 (This one I made myself)
For some reason, WordPress is not permitting me to upload my artwork directly, so here is a link (WordPress won’t even let me hyperlink it, either):
it was so obvious as to be rendered not obvious. i could see the harm in this, yet in reality there is no harm to be told.

We cannot see them covering us.
We can see the green growing and creeping.
