Halloween is not a bit deal in Oz (yet!) but I do have a bowl of lollies by the door ready.

The broken links....and what to do about them

One of the causalities of my brush with hackers and low life's is the fact that I have been banned on a few services (nothing to actually do with me! BTW) or considered UNSAFE on others, so a lot of otherwise legitimate posts now have broken links in here now. There are so many I don't know where to begin fixing the links, or even if it really matters.

Having second thoughts?

pastel over watercolour on paper
My latest on-line project to hand drawn selfies posted by others, seemed like a good idea at the time, but has not meet with much enthusiasm. Perhaps it is was too many naked breast and just the whole nudity thing corresponding the leaking of a lot of naked instagram and snapchat celebrity images. I hope not.

Anyway I would appreciate conmments and feed back on weather sketching selfies is art? or whether it is even appropriate for the public social web?

I'm tweeting a bit again

One place you can find me is on twitter. Even though I do feel "I am shouting into the void" I can see this is a legitimate place to reach a larger community of potential art appreciators

The underside of the social web

I know I haven't been posting in here much, I am still drawing and enjoying life. It was just that I was having a welcome, albeit long, break from the havoac of trolls and hackers. Luckily blogger's comment spam filter did a good job sending a lot of low life stuff into libo. I do apologize to the few wonderful people who's true comments where also quarentined. They are now back on public display.

The saddest thing about this is I don't really care, but I do understand how powerless you can feel. I think the lesson remains "don't feed the trolls" (without the oxygen of exposure and response they wither away)
