Where I've Been

You mayyyy have noticed that I haven't posted anything in ages.  I've been working on figuring out what I want to do as an artist.  I've started a sustainable art & design brand called BAD HAUS and opened an etsy shop.  Right now, there are some patches and an art zine available to buy, but I'm working on designing and curating a collection of vintage and hand made clothing.  I hope to launch that real soon.  If you are interested in my new endeavor, you can follow me here, here, and here.

This might be the last post on this blog.  I've really enjoyed writing and posting on here, but it's time to call it quits.  If I can't post regularly, than it's really just wasting internet space.  I'll probably delete it in a month.  Thanks for clicking, stay in touch.  - RWPF

13 Questions: KAZLAND

Meet KAZLAND.  The U.K.'s answer to the ghosts of the underground Brooklyn art scene, back when it was all grit and spit and bloody lips.  Born and bred in Fleet, Hampshire, he's shown work at The Keystone, The Hart Centre, The West End Centre and Farnham Art.  When he's not arting, you might catch him shredding on stage for FOE (probably wearing leopard print).  Kaz let me ask him 13 questions...

Describe your style in three words.

What’s your process like?
I have to have lots of things to work off, like movies, music, books etc. And I work and re-work until it looks like something I’ve had in my head at one time or another. If that makes sense.

What and where would your dream exhibit be?
Either that old subway station from the teenage mutant ninja turtles movies, a huge wooden room built sneakily somewhere.. or Carnegie Hall.

Who's your favorite contemporary artist at the moment? 
Harmony Korine (if he counts).  I find myself constantly inspired by his films.

Whose art do you want burn?
Either Damien Hurst or Claire Fontaine’s. 

What’s your favorite article of clothing?
I flicker between lots. Currently it’s a short sleeved, buttonless, collared green sparkly leopard print cardigan.

Never leave home without…?
My bag, sunglasses, a camera, a hat and drawing things.

If you could only paint with two colors the rest of your life, what would they be?
Boring answer but white and black.

Best movie to art to?
Pulp Fiction or Gummo.

Jack White and Jamie Hince get in a bar fight.  Who wins?
Well I know Jacky White’s got a mean left hook. But there’s a smashing video of Hince in a drunken papp brawl.. I’d say Jack. He’s got big ol’ arms.

What was the last thing you drew?
Lot’s of foetuses or foeti in a bears stomach.

Worst thing about being an artist?
I ruin a lot of trousers.. and paint’s expensive.

You mix a drink called the Basquiat.  What’s in it?
Heroin and simple syrup with a lemon twist. (in a funky glass)

So apparently this blog has blipped some radars, because I've been getting emails about promotions and shit (or does everyone get those? I feel so cheap).  I just want to take the opportunity to say that I DO NOT want to hawk your clothes, praise your clients, or get your free shit.  Marketing has a time and a place and this is not it.  One of my greatest loathings is of insincerity.  I shall not partake in it for your commercial benefit. 

Having said that, if private and independent artists, designers, or musicians want to contact me themselves about their work, that is way more awesome and acceptable.  If I love it, I may write about it, but that shouldn't be the motivating factor.  We have to stick together.

This blog may be useless, but at least there are no ads.  Let's all raise a middle finger to that.


Magic Magic

I don't know anything about this movie, but Michael Cera's sweaters are excellent and really putting me in the cold weather vibes.  Also, I'm digging the Ian McCulloch from Echo & The Bunnymen meets Jack Nance from Eraserhead haircut.
