Wray talent motherfuckerrrr





by Róisín Wray





This is an 'unfinished' (but I have to post it)
GCSE art final piece, 
from St.Patricks High School, same town I'm from.

So I know her through my friends 
and I knew she painted but I never seen her work 
until recently and fuck me, her oil painting blew me away.

Probably the one of the best painters I've seen here definitely,
and even more so that she's just eighteen which is crazy. 
You can tell she's passionate about it too, 
which is rarer even more so. Alright.

Good painting.

P.s a level final piece* not gcse

First real print job!



Ulster wildlife Booklet I (we) did, came in today.
2000 copies. A day before the launch.

Looks great. David Attenborough is a little pixelated and also at one point me, Christine and Tim nearly ripped each others throats out, but it's finished now. Go team!









I'll take a better photo tomorrow.
Which I am excited for like. The launch for the new brand is
happening tomorrow night at the Titanic Centre, Belfast 
and were having dinner there and they are going to show the film our 
company made on the cinema screen along with the animation I created.
I have no delusions this time, I am very lucky.

And all of us from work are going to go and get wasted!

Good day for me, less so for them.

Prior Sleep


  



"This is about that moment when you're in bed, just prior sleep,
 and suddenly you begin to think about how vast and ridiculously big the universe is.

 You probably then end up dreaming about having a brew and going to your mams."

From my (internet) friend in Manchester.

Seen this years ago and
it always had an lasting impression on me.
You know those pieces?

Intention




Tim showed me this to try inspire me.



Nice




I do Listen


Why is it called that, don't ask me. It should be called 'stupid talk' or something like 'the collection of bad grammer.'



Absence of nice.

I'm in the station waiting.
And I was wondering, what's the worst comment you can give to anything.

'Not nice' hits me the most I don't know why.

It's worse than shit. Worse than bad. It's worse than fucked up, awful, terrible, crap, sick and twisted, horrible and even wrong and it's even worse than worst.

I'd rather something that was any of the above happen to me than it be not nice.

I even feel sorry for myself if something 'not nice' happens to me. And I get actual fierce self-loathing when I do something not nice. Despair all round. Whereas if I'd plain and simple fucked you over, or vice versa, it wouldn't mean anything to me at all if you know what I mean. The difference is massive. Clearly.

Alright.

Well I just write a blog whenever I've no-one to talk to, lets be honest.

At least I can agree with myself.
I take it all back.

But like 'Shameful' must be worse
and 'heartbreaking' has to be,
and I know there are more.
Like describing a rapist is indescribable.
 And all the bad dans le monde.


but there's something sort of sad about not nice
in a different way.
Maybe because its less obvious,
 the certain things people including me do.

Like not saying goodbye when you should is not nice.
Not letting people know your gratitude is not nice.
Letting someone down who you didn't even owe anything to.
And belittling someone's beliefs, even though you don't agree, is not nice.
Leaving someone on their own, especially when you know the feeling. Taking someones self-esteem down. Going too far in an argument.
Blowing off a good mate.

(are you reading this danny?)
 hah

 and all that.

Hey first oil painting



I look at oils all the time, but never really thought about them until I studied The Last Duchess and read the Picture of Dorian Gray even and then I got really fascinated with them.

Its completely different from acrylics and what have you, mainly because they're so expensive. It actually took me months to afford all the colours one at a time seriously.

But no really it's that they are really slow. It takes literally days for a layer to dry. Its good though, the theory is the same as digital painting but oils are just better in every way apart from those things, they're fun to use. Anyone will tell you that.







It's even worse in person.

The Definition of Desperation



The fear of having nothing
that makes you appreciate everything
that you have or don't have.



Simmer down.
