I've entered Nike-93's spring/Easter/random raffle! :excited: Sounds like fun. She'll make pretty artworks for me if I win. All the details are in this journal entry of hers, if you'd like to enter as well:
And here's a few of her artworks, so that you're already familiar with her style:

In other news, I have TWO gigs in Denmark this coming summer (northern hemisphere summer, that is)! :woohoo: I'll be playing at Fairbar in Århus on the 26th of June and at SpireFestival which I believe is somewhere near to Holbæk at the beginning of August. So, Danish Deviants, I'll see you soon! I'm also working on a new website for my music, which is still currently under construction, but it has my upcoming performance dates on it, at least. This gets updated every time a new gig is confirmed, so keep an eye on it, if you're interested: I've applied to perform in several different venues and festivals around Sweden and Iceland, and I'm also keen to be playing in the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Spain (and anywhere else in that area that wants me to play at their venue or event), so any other European deviants, if you like folk music, do keep an eye out for me.

...better yet, if you know of a great venue in your area that I could get in touch with to perform there, let me know and I'll contact them as soon as I am able.

(I offer this as explanation as to why I've not been the most active of Deviants lately. My job at the moment is full-time emailing. I often don't even have time to play music, which is my main creative focus these days, let alone make visual art, but I will get back into it one day!)

Finally, I've been revisiting some of my old favourites, and I have to say, this has got to be my current absolute favourite artistic nude piece. I keep coming back to this all the time, and really like it. Maybe it's the raw "Man vs Nature" vibes that appeal to my inner alpha male, I don't know, but I thought I'd share it with you all. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do...

Go and give Torsal some love, won't you?


Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I'm an all-round artist currently based in Latrobe, Tasmania. Although young, I have a relatively extensive amount of creative experience; I've dabbled in the art forms of circus, drawing, printmaking, creative writing and stage magic, I practice photography, dance and photomanipulation as a hobby, studied theatre at university and am pursuing a career in music. I play several musical instruments, including piano, ukulele, dumbeg, tin whistles and Celtic bouzouki, I'm one third of Tasmanian inter-generational folk trio Velvet Sledgehammer, and I've just completed my first studio album and am in the process of launching it with an appropriately epic tour. I also love chocolate.

Warning: I feed trolls when I get bored! It makes me giggle.

Heyyy, Tiger!

Sorry for the late response. I did compose an immediate reply, but it was about 1 or 2 in the morning at the time, and so when I accidentally deleted it, it was very deflating, and sleep seemed more important at the time than trying again...

...and then stuff happened and I forgot. :ashamed:

Winter is bloody fantastic. I've been in Hobart for ten days, which was amazing. Met lots of awesome people and found lots of enticing new experiences and events. This week I'm involved in a jazz festival, both by helping to run it, and performing. Winter in Tasmania gets better and better every year! Sorry that summer's so bad for you. Why do you leg it up to Northern Canada or Greenland? That should cool you down...

FOUR KITTIES?! Yes, of course I want one, but I won't. I've got my hands full with Pippin. Plus getting across the Pacific would be problematic.

What's going on with me? Well, apart from my winter adventures, I'm in the process of recording an album, which is a very big learning curve...and apart from procrastinating on the internet, that's about it! My life is consumed by music at the moment...not that I'm complaining, of course!
