About dixiemakesastatement

21 years old, Living in Brisbane and Studying diploma of visual arts. My blog is like a visual diary everything that inspires or intrigues me, gets posted. I post my own paintings/drawings which are results of my inspirations. I do not take myself seriously. I love art more than most things, I just hate the assholes of the art industry. "All artists are willing to suffer for their work. But why are so few prepared to learn to draw?" — Banksy

Boils and Ghouls.

I just wanted to update on my attempt to start my business so far since my last post. I was accepted into the year-long NEIS program through the government to help me succeed in my business dwellings and have been creating brand spanking new designs.

I’m not going to lie, it’s be really hard to not give up completely as I haven’t even made my first sale yet but I know that will all come in time if I keep it up and be consistent . So in an attempt to kick start it along I have set up an online fund raiser through ‘Pozible’.

Please take a minute of your time to check it out and read about my plight, then tweet it around or share on Facebook.

It would really mean the world to me if you could get word out there, and if you are keen enough to donate you will receive a reward!

Visitations

I’ve been really busy since my last post with trying to stay motivated and inspired.

Since my last post my handsome man came to stay with me for three weeks which was awesome of course. We did all the regular touristy stuff like look at things and stuff.

Oh look, a rock!

We were adopted by a freaky copper android Irwin family which was cool for a change.

I got bitch slapped by a kangaroo which was cool too I guess.

Of course I had to take him to my favorite place for a day of exploring.

Loads of fun was had and as expected it went way too fast before we had to stay our goodbyes once more :(

I’ll be heading back that way shortly which eases the separation pain ever so slightly.

My life has been pretty mundane for the past year or so, blogging has ceased. I’ve been working on my business and just trying not to lose faith altogether in life by keeping myself as busy as possible. I plan to become more active on this blog once my traveling commences. I’m not really one of those people who has an exciting life (or thinks they have an exciting life) that can consistently blog and write about, I spend most of my time alone in my room which leads to nothing in the way of interesting material.

Since my last post I’ve been working on setting up a website and opening an online store/starting my own business.

So I’ve officially ‘opened’ my website and online store and I am now selling T-shirts and prints based on all my own designs.

So it’s been a while…

A lot has happened with my life since I last posted. I wont go into too much detail but I just spent the past three months in Alabama, I’m back now and I’ll be heading back sometime at the end of the year.

My life has literally been turned upside down in the best way possible.

Here is a piece I created while in Alabama inspired by a friend of mine, it’s titled “Hang out with your wang out”. I have also posted the last piece of work I created before I left it was inspired by the 1990 ‘Night of the living dead’ which happens to be my most favouritest movie.

Hang out with your wang out

Did you know that if you super glue quarters to your shoes you get tap shoes?


Week 1 of holidays.

So holidays started this week and this is what I have accomplished thus far.

Vertebrae and Water lilies

Cholombian Saint


Gas Masks and Zombies.

 

 

As per title..

 


Scrunchies and sparkly shoe laces.


Gone flyin’

So I went to the park with my parents while my dad flew his model aeroplane, I proceeded to find a swing and get distracted.

 

 


Back to school.

 I’ve been back at full time study for a couple of weeks now. I lost my mojo and stopped posting however I have a new class that requires me to post a blog post every week in order to pass… yeah… Gonna be some random shit.

Let’s get this ball rolling.

So.. the other day I went to the art gallery with the rest of my class as a  part of an assignment.

 

Oh look! People!

Glass balls full of urine coloured water with moving black stuff inside.

Fluorescent lights with fans blowing them around.

I lack the ability to be descriptive.

This was pretty cool, it looked like it was breathing.

A distraction!

and that concludes my visit.

 


So I turned 22.

I had a party with all my friends

Blew out some candles too
