Paintings I did yesterday

Dear Shakespeare,

I did a series of quick watercolours to map my feelings about King Krule, feeling sad and not knowing why and feeling really passive about life. I think I am starting to obsess about things again, mostly (ok entirely) about King Krule. Except when I get obsessed with something its not picturesque and teen feelz like I see on tumblr, I don't make shrines or have pretty glitter and candles. Instead I listen to nothing but his music, consider getting fake id to sneak into one of his shows and then come close to tears when I realize I'm not even going to be in the country when he comes down to play Laneways/do sideshows. I build these really life consuming mental shrines and it makes me sad to think I might never meet him, just to talk to him and see if he's anything like I imagine him to be. Urghhhh whyyyyyyyy anyways here are the paintings I did:








Ps. BEYONCE JUST RELEASED A NEW ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I want to make glittery pink shrines but I just really cannot be bothered and I do not have that much stuff. I love your paintings, they make me want to splash a lot of paint around and call it art. and BEYONCE OMG

    1. Yeah omg I make a bunch of glittery shrines but I end up knocking them down and rebuilding them, probably because I make them for their aesthetic value more than as a way of expressing my obsession. Aww thanks, I don't think my paintings are art or anything. They're just me doing stuff, idk, but you should!! Experiment with painting or whatever creative stuff you like without any expectation cos its really fun!!!
