Flux descends

Coming back into the blogosphere after a long absence is being met with an honest reluctance, I must admit. However, it feels necessary to clarify a few things on where Woody’s Studio is going.

Efforts in researching and being involved where interweaving art and human health issues (endometriosis, for example) is no longer a focus. Abandoned, actually. Disappointing, yes, but move on. The circumstances that surround and confront us now highlights a need to engage in more fun and engaged personal creativity. That’s how I feel anyway. Selfish. Total. And I don’t need to apologise for that.

I just want to have some fun in my practice and output.

What does that mean for doing a Masters in Visual Arts? I don’t know. That will take time to figure out. For now, perhaps, for another 12–18 months, my Woody’s Studio is, indeed, in a period of flux, including myself. I do know that I will soon (hopefully!) complete a Graduate Certificate in Visual Arts at Griffith University, in Brisbane.

For the foreseeable future, keep an eye on Woody’s Studio’s bookFace (think about it!) and Instagram, for what conjures up intuitively…

The Push-Up Challenge and Prolonged Misfortunes

Tied up. Pretty much tied up and a lovely impressive chunck of misfortune has occupied my time these last couple of months or so. MacBook Pro of 11 years totally died. Back up laptop also died. My car died. My final uni assessment for the trimester may also die! All this while, I managed to do some temporary full time work of questionable quality.

Whilst trying to find a new Mac, car, job and uni study, Woody’s Studio has taken up The Push-Up Challenge 2021. Starting in June, this is a great cause in raising funds for organisations who handle mental health and suicide prevention. Headspace, Lifeline Australia and The Push For Better Foundation are the main beneficiaries. To donate, or wanting to know more, feel free to tap on that link below! I have to complete 3,318 push-ups over 25 days during that first month of winter!


And creatively? That more important thing? My study with Griffith University (Queensland College of Art) in Brisbane has seen me develop a project of how to metaphorically visualise the hidden medical condition of endometriosis. Needless to say, watch this space for developments. The UK Doctor Who magazine TARDIS has kindly used my services for a series of illustrations relating to the seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy. These will be posted in my portfolio shortly. Editors were impressed and may need my services again in the future. The magazine’s link is also found below. Another silly Schlock is a-comin’ too. Woop-woop! I’m tired …

‘Run for Autism’ an outstanding success

The last three kilometres to complete the 21km half-marathon fundraising challenge was finally done yesterday. The weather was balmy and oh-so beautiful as seen below. Woop-woop!!!

Donations in total reached $427! Exceeding the goal of $50 many times over! Incredible thanks again to all donors. This money will and DOES go to programs and supports for those with the autism spectrum condition across Australia – both children and adults!

The Rising Caduceus Phoenix

With great rapture this tattoo design was created for an increasingly resilient nurse, who has been confronted with many challenges. Now on its way to Scotland to provide the continuing impetus of rising above these challenges. Godspeed … seriously, I bloody pray that it does get there, given the current circumstances with mail and deliveries!
