She’s getting there. Left with some final finishing touches.

Always my favourite duo.

The Freshest.

In this video, The Freshest, consisting of the talented Kutcorners and DJ Marvel, appearing elegantly in b&w, channel the Shaolin style of Wu-Tang Clan’s 1993 rap hallmark “C.R.E.A.M.,” and lay it ever so smoothly over a reconstruction of our boy Aubrey’s “Pound Cake,” which significantly features Ellie Goulding’s vocals from “Don’t Say A Word.” Then, they tie it up with their own remix of Ty Dolla $ign’s “Paranoid.”

I had a dream of white chrysanthemums. One fell from above into my hands. It was beautiful.

I decided to paint some today.

Arcade Fire - Wake up

I’ve been busy painting the past weeks. Been neglecting some things like chores and social life.

I will post the art prints to the winners tomorrow and you guys will probably get it in about 3 weeks if you’re not living in the states. Will inform the rest of the winners soon. Sorry for the delay!

Thank you everyone for being true supporters of my art all these years and following me through since the beginning. Good things are coming soon and I will share the news with you in time. 

This is one of the best albums in my opinion. Soundtrack of the week for me.

Hey, my eyes are shooting sparks 
la nuit, mes yeux t’eclairent.

For my bones have found a place to lie down and sleep.


Daughter - Perth / Ready for the floor 

A slow-burning, tear-jerking mash-up of Bon Iver and Hot Chip.

Instead of carving up the walls
Why don’t you open up with talk
'Cause we are ready, we are ready for the floor.

On to the next one.

The sun is setting. Having a smoke break.

Unfortunately, the bad habit has kicked in again since this painting started.

Giving me some much needed calmness through this storm.

70 ciento.

Burning the midnight oil.

Are we there yet?

It is best to view that with Retrograde playing. Soundtrack of the painting. Haha

Thank you!

So show me why you’re strong.
Ignore everybody else,
We’re alone now.

Layering her up.

You’re on your own,
n a world you’ve grown.
Few more years to go,
Don’t let the hurdle fall.
So be the girl you loved.

Building her up
