Sharing Love


My latest illustration that I brought to life after sketching it on my return flight from London. I did it while thinking about love and staring at a girl that looked like my ex girlfriend. Where these two are in love, it florishes to the left and their love continues to grow. The little bubbles are blossoms that are flying off, sharing love around to others.

All done in Adobe Illustrator and finished at 2am woooot

Bernhard Gál lecture and performance

Sound Art Project 'stadtklaenge | klangstaetten', Allgemeiner Konsumverein, Braunschweig; May 7th - June 28th, 2009
Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend a short-notice guest lecture and performance by Australian sound artist Bernhard Gál after he got in contact with one of my friends to hold a lecture/performance at the St.James music room. Would have loved to advertise it more but unfortunately there was very little time.

I have to say that the lecture was so much better than I had expected. I was waiting for an interesting but perhaps dragging lecture on sound installation, however it was more of a visual journey and explanation of the artist's installations, complete with hints on how to carry out a public-space installation and general details on the implementation of sound.

Site-specific audio-architectural installation in collaboration with Yumi Kori. Minoritenkirche, Krems, Austria, April - June 2005

video
The above clip is a short video that I took yesterday during the presentation of 'Stadtklaenge' - quite bad quality actually but I was more interested on what he had to say rather than worried about getting it on video :) Performance at the end was nice and atmospheric with a few surprises here and there, such as mingled voices close to the end, and a mysterious accelerating noise somewhere in the middle which felt like such a contrast from the rest of the calm audio piece. 

Overall it was an interesting experience, and even though I was dead tired after work, I enjoyed every minute of it. I hope we have more of this, and I suggest you look Bernhard Gál up if you're interested in sound engineering / sound installation & architecture / general audiovisual installations.

Behance

Well since it looks like I will never find the time to have my own website... it always feels like such a burden to even start thinking about a layout. I've decided to start uploading my portfolio on behance.net rather than on facebook. I used to update my deviantart account regularly, but for various reasons I have fallen out of love with deviantart. Behance has a much more professional look and is essentially a big portfolio of great graphic work, I urge you to have a look when you have time. There is even a nice clean version you can send to clients so that they won't see all the ads and extra stuff (just add /frame after your name) so here's my under-construction portfolio:

I'm pretty sure some students have a behance account, if so - link me :)

You probably already know about this but just in case you missed it. It doesn't happen very often that we are graced with such an exhibition in Malta. I hope there's more of these events. I'd rather see a corner of a work by Mucha rather than go to Isle of MTV ;)
