HIVE DOES NOT REALLY “NEED” MORE USERS

The only thing anyone has ever gotten from sitting on the fence is a plank up their arse. This month is my forth anniversary on Steemit/Hive, and here are five of my opinions: 1. What Hive needs is more opinions, more creativity, more free expression, more pictures, more balls, more humour, and more guts. It […]

TEN NEW DRAWINGS

Here are ten new drawing edits I just knocked off https://peakd.com/hive-158694/@frot/ten-new-drawings-added-to-my-website

THIS IS THE LOOK I’VE BEEN AIMING FOR

My favourite fridge magnet is a holographic skull that I’ve been trying to make into a picture. I’ve done several edits but none seemed quite right. Yesterday I think I nailed it – this is the look I was after. “Holographic Skull 666” (2020) This magnet has always reminded me of the time when I […]

TURNING APPLIANCES INTO ART

Art doesn’t have to be done on canvases and kept in it’s own special place, hanging on a wall like a shrine. There is all sorts of boring stuff that needs tarting up – like appliances Here are a couple of appliances I hot rodded. A boring looking footbath in lame pale green got some […]

SELF DRIVING PENS ARE FUN

Sometimes images come to us in the night eager to show us things like dive bombing retro body suits with poached egg eyes and lizard tongued breasts which are lurking just beyond our boundaries.

WHAT DO ALIENS DO ALL DAY?

The bathroom door handle broke so I took it off to suss out what was wrong with it. Turns out it’s totally buggered. As a temporary repair I bolted on a couple of hose fittings. Something to pull on until we get a new one. It looked a bit like a freaky little square face […]

AT WHAT POINT DOES MY ART CEASE TO BE MY OWN?

This is a question I’ve been pondering a bit lately on Hive with people discussing plagiarism vs. original art, and now that I’m planning to start posting to the Alien Art Hive Community I want to get a good idea of what is considered OK. As well as trying to get my head around what […]

HOW TO WASTE MORE TIME ON THE INTERNET

If you are reading my blog, you probably already have considerable skills in this area and don’t need advice from an amateur like me. You are probably too busy to read this post anyway so just stare at this picture for a few moments and relieve yourself. Now I’m going to blather on a bit, […]

HOW GOING VEGAN CHANGED MY LIFE

OK, I’m not really talking about eating any rabbit food here. I just mean sort of sniffing it. I know sniffing sounds a bit dodgy, but this is plants not panties, and it’s all perfectly normal. So I sniffed some vegan plants. Next thing I knew I had this urge to draw things. This hasn’t […]
