Alienation.

“…everybody thinks that I’m a mother fucking alien

I changed my mind a couple times

And everybody thinks I’m fucking crazy…”

Lyrics from my favourite Phfat track, The Dark, off their album You Are Going To Die. 

I’ve been super introverted lately. But I would like to reassure everyone who loves me that I haven’t been hiding, I’ve been working. I’ve been inspired like crazy, so you can expect some seriously dope shit shortly. I get a bit lost because I love working on projects I’m passionate about – and if you don’t know I’m passionate about Phfat you don’t know me at all. Get to know them and download all their tracks, because it’s good for you!

Soundtrack to your Saturday.

Just a pretty song with some lovely lyrics to brighten your day. Everyday should have its own soundtrack!

“She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see except standing there leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”

I’ve been obsessed with the local band Lark for a very long time. Today’s doodle is from their song Heroine Mary.

I peed myself a little.

PHFAT have confirmed that they’ll be using my sketches for visuals at Oppikoppi this year! My weird ass creatures and letters will be featured during their track City of Thieves Part 2. I feel on top of the fucking world! Not only are they incredibly talented, I happen to be a HUGE fan. So when I found out I’d be seeing my doodles come to life right next to Mike and Narch I had to sit down for a moment. They had been showing the sketches at previous events like Rocking the Daisies, but this will be the very first time that I’m going to see it for myself!

Catch them at midnight, Friday on the Wesley’s Dome Stage. I’m sure as hell going to be there! I’ll be the freak with the enormous smile and the tears streaming down my face. I’m just so damn happy ^_^

Listen to, or download the song for free on Soundcloud.

Slaap om miskien te droom.

Die lirieke vir vandag se skets is deur Francois van Coke opgevoer in ‘n teater stuk wat ‘n hele paar jaar gelede by Aardklop gewys het.

Ek het dieselfde droom nou al seker vir so sewe jaar. Ek droom ek sit vas in ‘n publieke badkamer. Partykeer is dit moerse lanie badkamers, partykeer is dit meer soos ‘n ablusie blok, en ander kere voel dit so gevaarlik en vuil soos ‘n tronk toilet. Ek wandel altyd rond opsoek na die uitgang en raak verdwaal tussen gange stalletjies en wasbakke. Ek het nie ‘n abnormale vrees vir publieke badkamers nie, en ek tinkle voor ek gaan slaap. Fok alleen weet hoekom my brein ‘n portal na elke badkamer op aarde is… maar dit verduidelik darem baie van wat uit my mond uit kom…

Vir almal.

Ek het gister met ‘n moerse skok besef dis volgende week al Oppikoppi! Ek is van nature ‘n benoude mensie wat bang is vir skare, harde geluide en nie graag drink nie, so Koppi is vir my maar stressvol. Tog het ek elke jaar die tyd van my lewe, en ek probeer myself net daarvan herinder. Want dis tog die lekker ding van Koppi, dis vir ALMAL. Dit maak nie saak of jy drink, rook, draf of dans nie, dis altyd ‘n jol! Of jou skoonpa skuins agter jou kamp en of jou ex sy nuwe girl bring, glo my, daar’s oor genoeg om jou besig te hou! Ek wil bietjie Koppi stories hoor, comment en hou my uit my werk uit, toe?

 

 

Maak die individu nou dood of verdwyn saam met my
Want ek sien min van ons wat hier bly lewe”

A lover gone insane.

If you don’t know that I’m obsessed with PHFAT, you really don’t know me at all. Last year I had a dream come true when they asked me to doodle for their track City of Thieves Part 2, I had no idea what I was doing but I drew my little fingers blunt. Today’s post is one of the many sketches I did while trying my best to impress the coolest okes in SA. How many people get to say they got to collaborate with their heroes? Well, I do ^_^

Because they’re cool you can download the track FOR FREES on their Soundcloud. And to set your Friday off, enjoy the video for City of Thieves Part 1. Lekker naweek almal!

 

“I hate to bitch, but everything I ever touch will always bear the taste of this.”

I am not undone.

Today’s doodle is inspired by the awesome guys from Amity Affliction. It’s a lyric from Pittsburg off their album Let The Ocean Take Me. I have fallen in love with this band! They’ve really helped me through a tough time, and isn’t that exactly what good music is capable of? I’ve put together a playlist of my favourite tracks, I hope y’all enjoy them as much as I do!

You look so cool.

A doodle inspired by the video for Robbers by The 1975. I had to look very carefully but she writes “you look so cool” on the napkin in the cafe. I often find inspiration in lyrics and films and I love it when creativity inspires creativity. It feels good when a bunch of mediums come together to express a certain idea, mood or emotion. Of course it’s easier if you relate to what you’re listening to or watching. But you also have to be prepared to go look for new things that inspire you, even if it’s in strange or scary places.
