had a blonde moment!

my new group collaboration central

kept reading the member numbers & reporting to my spouse how i had a total of 33 members, then in 24hrs the numbers dropped to 18. i was wondering wtf was going on!

then my other 49% said…um, you have a total of 55 members & you were reading the members who JOINED today!

vamp bangs head on desk i’m such a dick! LOL ;D

stickers

really shits me you have to create stickers separately, should have it’s own button, instead of having to screw around in the tshirts section. PITA it is!

big applause!!! - active redbubblers reducing art theft sales & sellers

i wanted to acknowledge some of the redbubblers i know who are fighting against art theft & art thieves….thank you for your vigilance, your energy, your reporting & endurance. it does pay off slowly (sadly).

i personally observed the end of on female art thief & her redbubble account last year. i also had ripped off art removed from another fellow’s redbubble account & he seems to be behaving himself now.

this week i’ve noticed several of the images i’ve reported removed one way or another. one breach was removed from one chap’s account but their account is still active.
one from one chick’s account but profile still active.
another account went totally bye bye…. :)
(NB: not stealing my art work but other artist’s pieces)

so

death lurks

It was totally innocent, a plan to meet at the cemetery at dusk. Solitary, no one would be around, no one would know.

The air had a certain chill, the grass was damp with moisture & the frog songs were discordant in the nearby pond.

He waited at their favourite tomb, leaning against the grave stone. From his jacket pocket he removed a flask filled with whiskey & took a large mouthful. Clenching & rubbing his hands together in the cool atmosphere.

Then he saw a torch light flash twice. A dark figure emerged from the woods, it was her. Her trench coat enveloped her but her dark piggy tails hung on her shoulder beyond her beanie. He stood to embrace her.

photographic help needed

can anyone tell me how to reduce or improve digital photographic images with that (don’t know how to describe it really), kind of stippled effect in plain coloured areas ie; sky. is it a fact of life or can it be prevented? i am new to shooting in RAW, is it less likely to happen in that mode or easier to fix? i don’t like it & i want to eliminate it because it does not demonstrate a nice clear image.
help please from all the photographers out there! :)

i would like to share one of my fav pieces of shoaib's....

Artist: Shoaib
—-—-—-—-—-—-—-—
There is still freedom in you

I think I was sixteen, old enough to know better
But young enough to not care
I ran up a down escalator…
Something about not backing down from a dare
Maybe it was the freedom in defiance
Or perhaps the disapproving looks of older glares
I could almost hear the thoughts in their eyes
“Wasn’t he taught better” in there cold stares
But I…
I really didn’t care

It made me laugh, it made me feel like I could break all the rules
It made me feel like if I believed in something I could do it if I wanted to

And then, just yesterday leaving work I saw a few young kids
I looked at them and thought these kids don’t have a clue
What do they know about the world and its problems?
But then I saw them do something that, now, I wouldn’t dare to do…

They ran up…

happy birthday from rhoufi

i just wanted to say thank you so much to rhoufi who took the time to make me a personalized photo b’day card, with a lovely msg of good wishes for my birthday tomorrow. thank you very much oldest lost boy! LOL ;D xo

OMG!!! - i've just been canon-ized!!! CANON EOS 7D as a birthday gift!!!!!!!!!!!!

holy crap!
was having the flattest day ever…..
then my amazingly tricky husband surprised me with some lovely little set of messages & a brand spanking new CANON EOS 7D an early birthday present (birthday next week)!!! No lenses yet though!

so i’m probably gonna need some advice from all youj camera geeks out there, to figure out what lenses to get. at this stage i probably want a zoom lens & a standard kind of lens. no really in need of a landscape or wide angle type at this point.
bloody hell this is going to be some project getting to know the new camera!!!
help! :)

thanks to my darling for such an amazing gift & thank you for your love & support! xoxoxox

acceptance banners - is it just me?

is it just me or does it shit you when you get acceptance banners from groups? ie; your work has been accepted. ???
i think it’s highly unnecessary & bothersome (as much as it’s awesome to have your work moderated well).

hector:

Six Feet Under the Ceiling. ©

The concrete at the bottom of the bridge looks inviting.

“I cant say that I would.”

I feel deaths warm clutch, at every blow.
And there’s something in the way, it moves.

I’m so tired…

I want to be internal bliss;
In silence.
Six feet under the ceiling.
Where I won’t hear the voice trapped in my head.
Were I won’t hear my forgotten feelings.

Six feet under the ceiling…..

The black eyed angel of death is here.
And there’s something in the way, it moves.

My mouth is rotten.
Like my forgotten poetry.
Like my hear…

i just want to scream! (PG)

i just want to scream

was featured in the love bytes group!!! super cool, thank you muchly host/s! :D

*i just want to scream!

it is not in my nature to hide beneath a facade
my ruins and my beauty are visible to all.
to be someone else is a veil to discard,
if only it were simple to do when you call.
what conditioned or preceded you?
or is it me?
are my intentions askew
to continue to burn out my energy.
i’m perplexed about how i feel
do i really care.
is there any appeal
that we can share.
i don’t feel obliged but i’m willing to support
i fathom the likeness when the journey doesn’t bode well.
i understand that life, it does thwart.
and all that escapes you is a yawp and yell.
much wisdom do i have to impart
to prevent you from damage,
it’s not too backward to start
trust me, and have courage.
we squandere…

the words left unsaid

the words left unsaid
were featured in the freedom in words & art group!!!
totally cool, thank you! :)

_The words left unsaid…

What do you prize most
Whilst we respire
Afore shifting to ghost.

Awkward silences are many
Day to day
The unspoken now uncanny.

In these seconds of life
Be brazen
Act to diminish strife.

Utter those words
Exhale with ease
Seize the moment to move onwards.

Do not allow it to prolong
Articulate now
Before they are gone.

The words left unsaid
Are heavy
Ne’er a burden at your deathbed._

You are the pus in my eye,

The skid mark in my pants.
You inspire the bilious wave,
You set tension in motion,
You are the ‘st’ in stutter.
You are the tumour that needs an ‘ectomy,
You are the cancer that needs the chemo
You are the malignancy that needs the radiotherapy.
You are the pus in my eye,
The vomit in my throat
The skid mark in my pants.*

eerie & cool colabs with terugvanver....

super dark n’ cool terugvanver & i had did a set of 6 collabs, using each others images. he helped me to learn quite a bit & my pieces to him went back n’ forth a fair bit before he was satisfied. of course this didn’t bother me at all because critique is part of learning & growing….

i am only going to add the finished works, our own takes on each two merged images.

the passenger

the passenger

The smile says all
that the man has to say,
for this ride he will
play the role of passenger.
Boisterous scenes pass by.
The smile says all
(clack clack)
A light flickers overhead.
Through the window
the moon flashes a cheesy grin
(the stars giggle at his silliness)
The many-hued lights of distant souls
wink knowingly.. hinting at secrets
uncovered but as yet undiscovered.
Treasures waiting for their turn
to pass by the window.
Beside the man an ethereal presence
squeezes tighter on his hand
“You’ll like the next stop”
The smile says all…
(clack clack clack)
and his eyes show that he hears
a great deal more
that the others…

cheers.

weightless (PG)

weightless was featured in the vavoom group!!! so sweet thank you so much!!! yay! ;]

*+Weightless+

Dedicated placement of fiery lips
Tingling touches of fingertips.
Temperate breath light as a feather
Tenderly binding knot of tether.

A willing prisoner to this passion
Fabric of satin and lace are the fashion.
Adorned sight dulled with positioned blindfold
Lust and heaven to be released tenfold.

Dedicated placement of lips
Moist pressure set upon hips.
Goosebumps spread like an infection
A downward journey is the direction.

Temperate breath light as a feather
To remain as one in bliss forever.*

the lover

the lover was also featured in the ,ove bytes group!! wow 2 features, fantastic news. thank you very much… :]

*+THE LOVER+

he’d gone to much trouble, setting the ambiance by stocking his wares, fresh linens, nibbles to delight, safety, comfort, bathing in milk & teasing his skin with his favourite fragrance. he knew how to treat his lover, now all he had to do was await the arrival….*

lovers

yo yet again another feature, will have to count them up!
LOL

lovers was featured in the passion of couples group!! bloody great thanks! ;D

my reason for creating what i do - manifesto

this is dedicated to loui jover

for this

My reason for creating what I do:

I guess I started to feel as thought I had some talent where photography was concerned to an extent & this talent has been improving & growing rapidly & has advanced into other areas of creation ie; digital art, digital manipulation, cross processing of images. I am self taught in all areas, trial & error.
I do paint on occasion although I’ve always felt it was my worst medium.
I do draw & also felt as thought I did poorly at that but I have been challenging myself to do more.
I write. Writing is something I do enjoy but it takes time to get it right. Often writing takes longer for me than creating art.
The reason for creating what I do? No idea. It just comes to me. Often there is no set idea…

watership

watership was featured in two groups!
the feminine intent group
&
the inspired art group!!!!
bloody awesome news, thanks so much to the hosts! dani will be as excited as i on this brilliant collab piece. many thanks! :)

volume control

volume control was featured in the students & beginners group!! wonderful, much appreciated. :]

*Volume Control

The volume, the overwhelming drenching surge.
Deafening tension bristles fine down.
Imaginary hands clutching desperately to cloak my ears.
Internal screams, thrashing and gnashing for calm.
The madness does not abate.
Insanity insanity!
How can I bear it, how can direct it.
I am lost, fretful and forlorn in this audible tsunami,
Desiring silence to enfold and nurture me….*

written by vampvamp.

a clearing (G/PG)

a clearing was featured in the art of intrigue group!! bloody great, thanks so much! :) xo

*the inspiration being post natal depression/depression/mental illness.

from the murk & darkness
the feelings of fear & inadequacy
the trappings of loneliness & debilitation…
come light, the clearing
resurfacing into self.
fear no longer,
as you will be embraced & nurtured.
the glow will encompass you
provide you warmth & strength.
you will find your way to the clearing…*

written by vampvamp.

ok if anyone is interested....

i am going to attempt to do more dedicated works either art or writing, a challenge to myself…
so if there is something you want, or you want to throw me some keywords or ideas, i am happy to dedicate something to you! :)

the last 2 days i have dedicated writing to madworld & jennifer b but i’ve also dedicated many a t-shirt or several to other bubble mates as well, like; jedidiah, wofldocter, akkra etc etc.

PUS

PUS was featured in the dark cabaret group!!! so cool, much appreciated! ;} xo

*PUS

You are the pus in my eye,
The vomit in my throat,
The skid mark in my pants.
You inspire the bilious wave,
You set tension in motion,
You are the ‘st’ in stutter.

You are the cancer that needs the chemo

THE SNAKE - PG/M rating

the snake was featured in the freedom to shine group!!!! sweet as, chuffed about that, second cool thing for the day! :)

*THE SNAKE

What is your imperfection.
What do you dread.
What causes you torment.
What causes you grief.

Where is your humanity…

You will cower for me.

I want to pick & pluck & poke at your innards.
Expose you.
The snake.

You will have no power.
You will shrivel.
You will cease.
You will feel the burden of all that you inflict.
You will languish in exile.
You will atone…

copyright shite

i am getting really pee-d off with copyright stuff lately.
it’s so bloody confusing.
i had another site i am on remove my"darth grader":http://ih2.redbubble.net/work.5603935.1.fig,roy... tee as it’s ‘not suitable’ (probably breeches copyright).
plus they also removed another piece my evil genius II tee with the same point, even though i explained as far as i knew there wasn’t an issue because i had downloaded free brushes with that icon/character. (unless the person who made the brushes breached copyright & i am innocent).
it is really PMO quite frankly.
how is it that here on the bubble people seem to get away with it & then on that other site, they have other people who do have well known characters or icons …

tshirt design help!

can anyone explain what causes loss of vibrancy in colour on tees please?
i am noticing at times (not always) that i seem to have some loss of vibrancy & a kind of greyness over my images once on tees, not in PS though. it is really shitting me quite frankly as it really kills the image of text with that loss of brightness & vividness. :(
any thoughts would be appreciated.

muse touring oz in december 2010 - i wanna go!

Muse announce December tour

Muse have confirmed rumours that they’ll return to Australia this year.

When the English trio headlined the Big Day Out in January, they promised they’d be back with their entire, world-class arena production, and now they’re making good on that promise, locking in massive shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Chris from Muse caught up with Tom and Alex and told them that while their quickly-becoming-legendary pyrotechnics and light show might be impressive, the focus for Muse will always be the music:

“It’s something we’ve always cared a lot about, and we want to put on as much of a spectacle as we can. But, you know, at the same time you have to make sure that the music stands up in its own right as well. All that…

how can one possibly keep faith in people

life is a constant run of let downs…
how can one possibly keep faith in people, a person, when there are constant disappointments.
humans are so faulty.
why?
how can we even open ourselves up to new people, to trust, to leave our hearts with them, when ultimately that trust will be destroyed.

has anyone seen the new...

anti-alcohol ad or moderation of alcohol ad in australia?
i can’t find a clip for it yet….
shows blood on canvas (red paint) tracing the circulatory system then muscles, body etc, whilst talking about risk of ethanol intake.
the blood ends up making an entire body on white canvas & the art work is fucking awesome. would love to know who the artist is & if you can purchase that work.
so cool!!! :)

found a clip here second one down…

i have to put this up akkra! ;)

this is a joke from akkra, i had to put it up cause i think it’s frickin’ hilarious. if you’re offended by crudity, don’t read on! :)
thanks for the great laugh akkra!

_A man wearing a balaclava bursts into a sperm bank with a shot gun. “Open the f-—- safe!” he yells at the girl behind the counter. “But we’re not a real bank” replies the girl. “This is a sperm bank, we don’t hold money”. “Don’t argue just open the safe or I’ll blow your f-—- head off!” She obliges and opens the safe door.

“Take one of the bottles and drink it!”

“But it’s full of sperm” the girl replies nervously.

“Don’t argue, just drink it” he says. She prises off the cap and gulps it down.

“Take out another one and drink it too!” he demands. The girl drinks another one. Suddenly the guy pulls o…

happiness

as i was walking today i came across a black board with a message or statement or philosophy saying:
happiness is not an emotion it is a choice
sorry i have to totally disagree.
happiness is an emotive reaction to stimulus.

TALENTED & UNKNOWN ARTIST MAGAZINE (worldwide publication) - ISSUE 3

talented & unknown artist magazine – issue 3!

please everyone have a look! :D

i would like to give a big shout out to mark snelling – RB
mark snelling – web !!!!

i am very grateful he chose me as one of the many talented unknown artists to be featured in his worldwide publication!! i am honored & delighted!
i was even permitted to participate in some editing of the featured exhibition.
congratulations to all artists in the mag, keep up the great work!

i reiterate…my gratitude to mark snelling for choosing me.
THANK YOU MARK! :D XO

i was thinking...

would be cool if another thing redbubble added to merchandising was those LED tshirts, so you can have stuff/messages/images lit up on your tee.
i have an idea for a more advanced version of my care factor = zero tee.
hehe.

tip for the day!

when editing & processing images, ensure your computer monitor/screen is clean….
because, you don’t want to find out after all that intricate processing of the image, that it was indeed the monitor dirt & NOT the image!

drop

drop got a place in the top ten of the creative, talented & unknown group!! super, thanks to host/s, group & voters! :) xo

perth storm yesterday

was one of the times i wish i had upgraded the camera, so i could use a wide angle lens, cause there was a double full rainbow! i took some shots but they’re rubbish & i couldnt’ fit it all in & was too lazy to bother trialing ‘stitch assist’.
the weather yesterday produced some awesome skies that’s for darn sure! :D

ok weird

i just went through my favourites lists & clicked on heaps of artist’s work, from ages ago, to check if there were any new editions….what did i note? nothing, not one of the almost 20 artists i checked over, have any new work…..weird…. (or not? i dunno)

o'brien, brackstone & vanzella (weird dream)

yep it’s odd.
just before i woke this morning, i dreamed i was at a shoot with the 3 RB artists above. my job was to prepare some sort of visual art with paper & pencils. we were in some house. (before i went to sleep last night i was looking at mel’s piece native consumption) anyway, it was about that short, can’t recall much…

robgoodfellow

not happy jan....

took me ages to go to sleep after finishing up last piece tonight. when i got to sleep, iv’e had nothing but nightmares (unrelated to art)….& i was only asleep about 50mins!!! sad
not fair.
i am so tired.
now i am awake.
toos cared to return to slumber.
:(

i'm soooo excited

cue crap pointer sister’s tune….no, let’s not!

i picked up my 2009 birthday present…..my 40×50cm printed, sealed, stretched canvasses of my art.
(was thinking on the drive home, i must get onto developing my sig & or logo to add to my art in future)
so tempted to drive to a cafe regarding displaying & selling them….but these are mine! :)

of course the photo is terrible & they are still wrapped in plastic but here is a pic:

below are the real ones if anyone actually wants to buy some! ;D

is it lunar?

so there’s a full moon…(just passed), could this be a lunar thing or is it just a screwed up hot summer finishing up in WA. is it just life?
i dunno…
i have been having a shitty past few days due to varying things not running smoothly, feels like it’s not going to be much better in the next few days.
i feel incredibly emotionally labile.
:(
not sure how to feel more up.
do things i like?
not sure.

ok here's a doozy query for ya! (sorry mad)

forgive me i am actually fuming

ok so today i happened to be in a shopping centre, walking past a shop with ‘shiny stuff’ (ADOS). saw this awesome chrome lamp/light/chandelier. had camera handy, so from inside mall of shopping centre but outside shop through glass, shot a few images…
before i was set upon or questioned extremely rudely by a staff member.
i stopped, shocked & basically retorted that i would not bother buying anything from that shop then.
they seem to claim it is ‘common sense’ to ask permission to photograph their stock, even though i was outside.
i am so angered by this sort of behaviour or lack of professionalism, i contacted the manager of the shop, who claims that something more polite was said, which is not true. she explained that the…

yes i'm excited again!

just did my first lot of hosting on the the woman photographer group & selected my 12 features! congrats to all. thanks so much to jen ryan & shutterjunkie for permitting me to mess with their stuff! ;D
hope i did done good & it would be a pleasure to assist where possible in future.
would like to get the hang of presenting the featured images with images, rather than just links.
:)
cheers folks!

stability of photoshop

does anyone have any issues with the stability of PS? ie; do you find if you’re working on something for a while & it’s using lots of memory that it crashes?
i am getting a bit sick of it. currently using PS 7.0 on this PC but have CS4 on laptop.

grrr.

just as well i’ve been saving some layers today.
been working on my collab piece with matt dawkins. hoping to get it up today!
stupid goddamn things!

i'm excited!

just dropped off my last years’ birthday present to the printer today ($500 voucher to spend on printing up some my art). i picked 4 images, misty portal II, framed, scratch & gateway. all images will be printed, stretched & sealed on 40cmx50cm canvas. they will be ready next week.
can’t wait.
very exciting! ;)

not the first lot of my own art i’ve had canvassed. just these are the images i picked. wish i had the money to print them bigger.

also torn about whether or not to keep them or get them out to a local restaurant or cafe, to sell them on commission…. pout

red bubble tech query to other red bubblers #2

ok guys, the other day i went to RB help & tried to post new question, which failed! LOL (yes the help area, needs IT help!) LOL
um anyway….
who can tell me what you generally see in your red bubble ‘live feed’?
is it only art from artist’s in your watch list?
or
is it all new work?
etc etc etc
my husband & i have been arguing about what you actually see in your live feed & i wanted to know the answer once & for all.
couldn’t find a faq on it nor any other areas of discussion on it anywhere else.
help?
thanking you in advance.
;D

red bubble tech query to other red bubblers

hey dudes…
how do you put up the home page image if you are featured, as a viewable image?
i just went about doing it what i think is the ‘long way’? does anyone have any short cuts to it, other than screen capturing, saving as jpg & then adding image link?
help?
:)

don't you hate that

just been piss farting about with a new bit, part of my trolley series. thought i’d finally finished it & saved it. went to load it up on RB & oh, the file didn’t work. don’t know what happened to it but it’s gone of to PC no where land. i stupidly close PS after saving it, so have lost the whole lot! doh! oh well, i wasn’t happy with it anyway but what a waste of about the last 2hrs! :(

farkin' flying ant attack!

i just went outside lazily contemplating shooting the evening sunset…
then this lovely ambiance was ruined by farkin’ slying ants & one flew right into my eye & one flew right into my nostril! argh! that is sooo gross! eww. blergh. makes me shiver with yuck!s
:( pout
stupid goddamn nature. j blows nature a raspberry

redbubble glitch?

anyone else noticing that nothing is changing on their feed pages today? seems static, stagnant, rb can’t be that quiet from the point of view of art being uploaded? weird….

i'm sad

cause the universe is against me, or seems to be (maybe it’s just working in a mystifying way, perhaps it’s plan is better than mine/ours, but hard to see the flip side)…

was looking forward to a really awesome weekend of relaxation, lots of me time & now it looks as though it could be canceled & rescheduled (due to multiple annoying & unforeseen factors). :(

one of those things, is the fact that i have lower back strain (yeh don’t ask how that happened!). i am soooo sore. :(

paper heart

paper heart was featured in the feminine intent group!!!
gee how lucky am i today!? thank you so so so much feminine intent! awesome news!

my froat... :(

oh & i now have an almost sexy voice but it’s fading.
i’ve got bloody laryngitis. now i can’t even yell at anyone. now one can hear me whispering. it’s very frustrating. pout :(

pissed off

i am so shitty with people & systems (no offense any one).
can’t really elaborate too much.
let’s just say i have a love hate relationship with the medical profession & today i am really fuming.
waiting to see the potentially devastating outcome of medical intervention with a family member. cannot believe the neglect & incompetence. cannot believe individuals who actually trust this bodies of ‘professionals’ they blindly have faith & they’re basically screwed!
grrr.

split

split was featured in the best of featured work for 2009 in the windows & doors group!!!!
