BLAST, I got a copy of this for Christmas! A reproduction of the Vorticist, 1914 publication, I love it’s outrageous provocative content. The ‘Blast’ and the ‘Bless’ pages are wonderful and odd in equal messures.
BLESS the great PORTS

A recent lucky art discovery. I found this on the floor, it’s a portrait although the subject is unknown as is the artist.
Whilst recently on the coast, down south, i spied a ship heading for the beach. Quick as a flash i took advantage of my mobile phones camera facility and set about snapping. Imagine my surprise when, what i thought was pirates, turned out to be just the good ship Eva Hesse, with a large cargo of heavy weight minimalist and conceptual artists aboard……. The Good Ship Eva Hesse can be found in the new section Drawings (Lists)
This is a digital manipulation (please follow the link regarding the ethics of employing digital manipulation) of an original drawing of a series of heads devoted to the same subject, by sixteen different zebras at the same time and under the same condition. The experiment was undertaken in 1966, in Leipzeg at the Universität das Zebra, shortly after the shock world cup final win by England. Coincidentally the model for the ‘head drawings’ is thought to be none other than the footballer Geoff Hurst who, whilst on his summer vacation in the City at the time, was mistaken for Trampas from The Virginian (the zebras favourite TV show of that year).
Just been updating the blog today by adding a couple of Robertsworld galleries of drawings (letters and people). There will be further additions and updates over the coming weeks. Below is one of the drawings uploaded.
