Something Joel Said.

‘Being funky is about being ourselves, being original, having that confidence and cool to wear what you want, say what you will. The fashion industry in London is now having a reinvigoration of old models to take back the fashion walk ways… I am talking about 70, 80 year olds who dress as funky and as stylishly as any pop star walking down Hollywood. This for me, is funk, because funk is not about the young and hip. It’s about having the guts to carry something forward. Being an anarchist, a revolutionist, a deviant. For me, I managed to be funky again by daring to do the kind of art I like…

During my BA, I was trying too hard to be a good artist.

Now, having a more liberal arts education in London, I don’t see my life and art as two different entities. Now, I just do what I like to do, like how I always do in my life, but just translated into the language of contemporary art.

I always had a passion for cinema. Now, Sci-Fi fantasy films are the major focus of my work as an artist, homeboy and a proletariat.’

Joel is a dear friend of mine and this was his submission for The Uninspired Chronicles. You can interpret it in anyway you like =] I LOVE IT!

The Uninspired Chronicles

So as you might have noticed, I have been away for a while and while I should have posted the picture above way earlier, I’ll admit that, I have been extremely lazy and, also, I seem to have lost my mojo but drawing that picture brought it back 😀 *does a little dance but not a long one, no sir!*

I have been so uninspired that it inspired me to come up with ‘The uninspired chronicles”. For the month of April, I am going to be posting about how I overcame have been trying to overcome the creative funk.

In order to get back my MOJO, I have tried several things,

1) Watched contemporary theatre

2) Read more from Indie Authors

AND

3) Painted my own house and tried my hands on photoshop (The former is easier)

Here’s the thing, I want you guys to get involved and do a post about how you overcome the creative funk. Simply use ‘The Uninspired Chronicles’ tag and link it back to this post. I will send one of you guys a care package (or maybe I will give out more things to more people, depending on the participation levels) and I am hoping that all of you will get involved so that this thing will be more fun. Happy blogging!

P.S: For those of you who do not have a wordpress account, you can post on other blogging sites as well! Just remember to link it back to this post and I feel really shameless saying this but follow my blog so you’ll be notified when I pick a winner.

Be creative! Videos, Infographics, pictorials, poetry, write ups e.t.c are all welcome

and and and…

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a blog, email the entry to me at ‘riatarded@gmail.com’ -No excuses-

DEADLINE : 15 May 2012
