Ah. The peace. The quiet. I have had a few wonderful days. Good news for the three poster winners Herba, Fufi and Rafaella: Your gifts are on their way and will hopefully arrive undamaged at your doorstep, soon. And after my rambling about “creativity” and “act of creation” and “contact” I have finally eased myself back into my creative space. I’ve been through a bit of a “creative revolution” you could say. The urge to *make* could not be suppressed. I had been hoping, I had been *waiting* for that to happen. And since I have to wait for the arrival of one of my commissions at the recipient’s before I can reveal it, I had to do some noncommissioned shrining to quench my creative lust. I can’t hold it in any longer. And I can’t wait to share, so I am throwing this noncommissioned RAPSi out here.
(Revolution calls for the great unwashed – hence the dirty backdrop.
Had to look hard to find such a corner in my house. Not.) Another one of Mimi’s fabulous mini mint tins. Too funny to spray over. And who do you think should be enshrined in an anti-establishm eint RAPS? There’s only one…
There he goes, chopping through the rubble. The Chopster. This may be a bit premature. We know hardly anything of the finished product yet. But I read Urban Grimshaw and the Shed Crew, the book upon which the forthcoming film is based, and I know the rebel looks good among the rubble. This Instagram picture was an instant favourite with me. The composition. The light spill onto the face.
The hidden curve of the arse. The tousled waves of his hair…
I think Choppie-Baby is a bit of a rebel. He likes a bit a weed.
Not condonin’. Just sayin’. I really look forward to getting more material shown from the film. Not that I am a fan of the salt-and-pepper arse-cheater coat or the long-haired hobo look. But I can somehow relate to that character because I’ve known a couple of Chops in my wild time. And I look forward to seeing more of him. Ok, who am kiddin’? I look forward to seeing more of RA!
*coughs* This RAPS is not for everyone, I guess. But if you dare, it can be yours. It has the distinction of being the first ever Chop RAPS. (Those mini tins are really great experimentation grounds for new chaRActers.) For a change I am going to raffle this off over on my tumblr. I think I have neglected my initial stomping ground a bit.
I’ll link the raffle post in here as soon as it is up.
ETA: Here is the link to the raffle. To be in with a chance you need to reblog my tumblr post.
