Art School – A Song

This is a song I made when I was much much younger. The singer is the wonderful Lizzy Hogan, Ric Grudzinskas played bass, George Sutanovic drums and Linz Norris and myself on guitars. I’ve been making low budget, lo-fi clips to post stuff on Youtube. The images are from my Street Art photo file.

The song is copyright J P Horsam/I M Hogan 1979-2021 as updated. Please refer to my About page for full copyright details regarding the photos.

Not Quite Easter Island

If you’ve ever lived on an island, you’ll have noticed the small weirdnesses that isolation brings. It gets a bit tribal somedays.  After the recent fires and storms, the Dangaris went back to their old ways… building ritual sites out of the fallen timber.

These were ephemeral moai… gone in a few days. It’s getting chilly here and firewood is hard to come by.

Art Bites

Today’s prompt is ‘bite’.  I’d offer you a bite to eat, but we did lunch yesterday. What to do?  I have no photos of sharks, mosquitoes or lions.

Street art is full of teeth…. lots of gaping jaws.  This is a collection from the streets of Toulouse, Bristol and Newtown, Australia. They dont really bite!PSX_20200411_203024PSX_20200411_204257PSX_20200411_202821PSX_20200411_204625
