an oven mitt idea

I picked up this pamphlet, ’cause I thought it’s such a cool idea … an oven mitt can be person-shaped!!

I don’t really want the mitt shown, I realise it’s free if I buy 3 packets of mayonnaise, but I don’t like mayonnaise and I’m not really into the kewpie-kawaii-cute look, anyway.

But it’s fun to think of what type of person I’d put on my oven mitt … what sort of person is appropriate for cooking … a severe school mistress; a chef; a bear??? Once I work it out, I’ll use burdastyle’s Layla pattern. I don’t like the double thumb thing, my person would have one hand by their side.

Found at ライフ, I refuse to call it Life (correct translation), as Life is not a supermarket with a down-market clothing store and 100 yen shop.

street art #05

Or in this case, beach art.

Congwong, near La Perouse.

A running: it’s Winter here, remember.

There’s always a bit like this near a beach – sand, half-dead grass, charcoaled bbq remains, concrete, rolled up wet legs, sandy shoes.

Haven’t you seen these plants at every beach you’ve ever visited? I’m sure I have. Actually, these plants might be confined to just Australia, or even just NSW … anyone know?

street art #01

Motto: when you’ve nothing of your own to show, show somebody else’s work!

Where I live, people aren’t shy about sticking up ads for bands, share houses etc. Periodicaly, the council tears them done again, hence this piece of street art. (And, as you may have guessed, I’ve got my hands on a camera that’s more than a 0.5 megapix phone!!!)

I’ve often been facinated by slight decay, bad printing and rust. At one stage, I was thinking of a series of serious artworks about rust … you never know, I may get round to it one of these days.
