The delicacy of rock n roll

This might be a strange way to post this, scanning the pages as jpgs, but I wanted the color of the book. This is Dave Hickey, "The Delicacy of Rock n Roll" from Air Guitar. I love this essay, it is awesome, please read it! I know, I know, asking people to read, what am I thinking? Well, it is only six pages, and is really excellent, and I wouldn't do it unless it was worth it. Don't believe me? Screw you! (If you click on the pages they'll get a lot bigger and be easier to read...)

What type are you?

I'm going away on a road trip soon, so that means a month of no posts and i want to help accomplish this 100 post goal.. so heres another!

cork print

In one of my ta's we were teaching woodcuts, and the prof Oli brought a bunch of corks for the students to put on the end of their tools so they wouldn't get all blunt and so they wouldn't inadvertently injure themselves. One thing led to another, and voila, cork prints.

100 post challenge

All right peoples, we've had a good summer off here at dibbly. It's been super slow on the posts, no pointing fingers cause we're all guilty. However now that things have picked up I am proposing a challenge, throwing down the gauntlet if you will.
100 posts by the end of the year.
I don't think it's impossible, we did it last year, we're just running a little behind....
But with some hopefully busy months ahead I think we can do it.
To commemorate this event I've decided another Kid Creole and the Coconuts post is in order, this a live one with a whole sassy gay innuendo breakdown in the middle and everything.
Enjoy and keep posting!

Always been a huge fan of these guys and can't get this song out of my head this week.
And what an awesome video!

Please Remember Everything

Please Remember Everything
Actual Size Los Angeles

Featuring work from our very own Sean Boylan!
This was my excuse for not rocking out to OJO on Saturday.


That OJO video is sweet!

Since I posted those big loose drawings, I thought I'd post a small version of where they originated, because it is really the exact opposite. I was doing this kinda crazy thing, projecting old silk screen transparencies of images which were bitmapped (so they had a dot pattern) and then tracing them. I did several small ones, then did a bigger one, which was the same size as those looser ink drawings below. The big one took a week. This is one of the smaller ones that prefigured the larger drawing, which took a couple days.

This is pencil on newsprint, and is about 18x24. (of interest to the family, ie the largest audience for this blog, the pencil I used is one I got from Grandma Miriam when I was at UCL and it apparently used to be our Grandfather's. No real significance to that in terms of the subject of the drawing, it just had the right kind of lead, but its a nifty thing.)


Friends of the dibbly family, OJO performing "La Bolsa Blanca" live this past Saturday.
I missed the intro and my dancing was getting a bit rowdier by the end, but good times!

lightworks: Part 7: CHI

I took these on the way home from installing at Noble and Superior - thought they were pretty fun.


Been a while since a post on here, but I needed the semester to start so I could get back in the swing of things. I finished a big drawing, but it is kind of impossible to take a picture of. However, you can see it in person starting this weekend at Noble and Superior Projects in the show Ron Artist MVP - I'd encourage following that link and reading about it, since it's going to be pretty funny, and the art looks good.

These were quick sumi ink drawings that then reminded me of Monet's poplars, which made me laugh.
