My guitar sound(s)

November 22, 2011

I have been very busy with all the technical stuff. I’m sorry that I have not been blogging much, but the guitar sounds have taken over. My SL audience will be aware of my progress. Unfortunately, the problems with my computer fan have re-surfaced (tyvm Hewlet Packard).

I am going through a very busy period. I will try to get another post done sometime soon. Bye for now, my dear blogophiles.

Eurozone and the Greek debt crisis

November 5, 2011

Today, I decided that I would make a blog post, come what may. Emma, the art teacher at the Lit & Phil class I attend on Wednesdays, mentioned as a possible project or theme that we might draw something related to the newspaper. It so happens that I have been looking at an album of drawings originally published in The New Yorker magazine (covering the period 1925-1975). At the back of my mind has been the idea of doing some cartoon sketches, for some time now. My first attempt was back in 2009 with a cartoon of David Cameron around the time the topic of hedge funds was in the news rather a lot. I made a drawing which integrated a hedge trimmer into his portrait.  Here it is, in case you want to see it:

Today, however, I come bang up-to-date and present to you my cartoon of the Greek prime minister, Georges Papandreou.

I seem to be somewhat behind with all things at present. I need to get my giglist updated on this website and sort out my gigs in Second Life for the coming week. I have loads of piano I want to practice, including ‘Ne me quitte pas‘. I think me singing that in French will be even stranger than me singing ‘Ohne dich‘ in German! Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Papandreou cartoon. Speak to you later, my dear blogophiles.
