I've been pretty obsessed with the idea of adventures of late. I recently went on one to Belgium via London, and it was pretty magical. I'm going to be uploading all the photos and drawings and possibly also all of the thoughts I wrote down somewhere. Possibly here- we'll see. If not, I guess I'll post a link here? Apologies that the third collage is sideways!

So, I dig collage, collage is cool. Way back- like, maybe a few months ago, at the beginning of the summer, I did some collages. I also did some more recently. I'm not really sure where all of them are, but here are some. Some of them have suffered a little since first being created, but whatevs.
So, uh- I don't think that one would get all this from just looking at this, but I've been pretty fed up by the lack of female narratives in, y'know, mainstream media, so I got really excited when I passively aggressively cut out a man in a chair from a magazine page only to find that on the other side of it was not one, but two women. Hmm, explaining it that way has made me realise that I'm not sure why I got excited. I don't know, the guy looked like an asshole, so I wanted him out of the picture, and found two women. Woo. And like, they weren't selling anything; they were just there. This is wandering away from me. Have the collage:
Something that's also been annoying me is the lack of women in my philosophy degree. Like, it's bad enough that we don't study feminism (at all) or feminist philosophers, but we also don't study female philosophers. Except Hannah Arendt. Who is a badass. Anyhow- as such, here is a poem about stuffy old anal academic philosophy, and an accompanying collage.
SO- it's been a long time since I did anything on this blog, and possibly I should just make a new blog if I plan on posting things, but frankly I don't care. I like this place and I used to post things here, even if basically noone read them. I've been doing a lot of soul searching and having a lot of crises and thinking a lot and ALSO- making art and writing. I've been putting photos on a private page, but I may begin slowly putting those on here (provided the people in them don't mind), but for now I'm going to begin with some illustrations and doodles and whatnot. HMM. Maybe I'd be better off on Tumblr. Maybe I'll start using my Tumblr again. WHO KNOWS. For now, I found a scanner, so here is a painting I did:
