Brownie Bites

‘ Truffle’ recipe from Buzzfeed’s Tasty videos, the sweets are actually brazillian bonbon; brigadeiros. The soft chocolate tastes like brownie mixture covered in sprinkles. Its unusual, the brigadeiros scrumptious and sweet uses only 3 ingredients – sprinkles making it 4 – but I added a splash of white rum to the mixture. But I wouldn’t eat too many!

Weekend Project

This week I was tasked with making a mask for a small play’s rehearsal – an example. The mask is inspired by balinese and grecian masks but has taken on a bohemian look with the colourful hair and feathers. This unusual colour scheme, and exaggeration of the mouth are to represent the artaudian theme (theatre of cruelty) and stereotypes of witches as the scene the mask is used for, features Shakespeares three witches from ‘Macbeth’. I am happy with the outcome, especially since I haven’t crafted a mask in a few years.

Untitled woe

I’m style searching, testing the waters, wading through the muck and worries of being industry ready. My current style losing its touch and I’m not sure where to go. A heavy aura hangs in the air and I feel lost under its dark shadow, who am I? How can I communicate through my works? And does my work express what I want it to say, be it my personality feeding through it – rather than a flatness like the paper that stares at me. Deciphering my skills and wielding the tools to make my minds eye reality. There are so many illustrators, I scroll my screen seeing their work light up before me, dawning their brilliance; perfected in style, colour and composition. Where do I start? I have my advice but those works seem fragile now, their strength waning. I can’t create a success so soon, but maybe I can permeate the surface of disillusion, crack it just enough to peep through and guide my hand in clarity.
