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 …
