Vibrant Life

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 18 February 2015 · 105 views

Between the zeros and the ones,
a paisley tablecloth is spread, and atop it
rests white lace napkins, the yellow butter and
the butter knife, the wine glasses, the teacups,
the water jug filled with ice – a mundane scene
whose colour scheme is a little too uniform
to be organic.
Realize this, but do not panic. The teapot
is still hot! There i...


Studio Ghibli Mural

Posted by Dirntbag , in Art 15 February 2015 · 97 views

It's amazing what you can accomplish while procrastinating. I finally finished this Studio Ghibli mural on my bedroom wall. I started it so long ago... It's got characters from some of my favourite Ghibli movies; Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. Here are some photos:

Gaffs attached to the stem
of a scaly yellow leg, the link
between them and mighty dinosaurs,
slash and sing to the jeers
of the crowd.

They’re loud. They think
they’ve got this domestication down
but they forget where roosters get 
their legs from. The blade there almost
remakes them into 
a raptor,
the dewclaw clacking against the...


Scientific Illustrations

While in the field I was able to make sketches of three fascinating creatures; the Common Sea Serpent, Garden Fairy and Merperson.

2014 in Review

Posted by Dirntbag , in Personal, Writing, Art 30 December 2014 · 205 views

The introspective knowledge gained by personal reflection is perhaps the most powerful kind of knowledge there is. Without being constrained by outside influences, this knowledge is, if considered carefully, the most objective kind of knowledge we can possess about ourselves. For this reason, reflection is a very important part of my life. I reflect on ev...


Avoidance (a short story)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 21 November 2014 · 189 views

It wasn’t Jessica’s fault. She was the one who told me three months in advance, a month in advance, a week in advance and now, one day in advance of my imminent deadline. She’s a very good personal assistant. It doesn’t matter though, I still find myself here, making this call. I think Jessica knows that no matter how much she trie...


Diel Vertical Migration of Plankton (poetry)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 11 November 2014 · 130 views

Sun beckons to phytoplankton as 
a dinner bell beckons to guests,
and in their finery, their congruous bodies
bejeweled, charms manifest.
One sports a pocket watch on an ornate
golden chain, but time's forgotten as they
mill about and bask. Meanwhile zooplankton 
are anxious for the day to pass
so that, with darkness' disguise,
they may r...


Tropical Storm Fay

Posted by Dirntbag , in Personal 13 October 2014 · 249 views

Everything looks greener after a good storm. The plants are windswept, bent and broken but they look more alive than ever. Maybe it's the yellowish morning light or the fact that everything still has a sheen of moisture on it from the previous night. This is the first thought that enters my head upon seeing our yard in the daylight after the storm. ...


Portraits and Wallpapers

Drawing zombies is very satisfying. I want to do one crouching over a body next, but I can't get the positioning right yet. I've got to do something at least mildly interesting to do with art because art class is the most boring thing ever.

School Symphonies (a poem)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 16 September 2014 · 139 views

The staccato sound of an
energetic polished shoe tapping
at speed against the floor, willing a second’s length
to match it, or more, so that the
remainder of the period may speed along.
A metallic sploosh inside tin bottle as 
a pair of lips sips a drip
of its contents, accompanied by a
desperate desire to break the time left
into manage...
