Obligatory “first week of college is out of the way” post

September 6, 2013

Some of you will be aware that I previously went to college back in 2005 and lasted around 5 hours (including travel time). You’ll also be aware of my stance on art students, so it might come as a bit of a shock to find out that  I, of all people, am now Lord Pretentious Wanker MCMLXXXVII. I was surprised as well.

Here I am, sitting with an iPad (sigh) an expensive sketch pad (double sigh) and fucking chalk/pastel residue all over my hands.

Just to hammer home the point: I was assigned to draw four different things, each from four angles. Because I’m a lazy shite-bag, I opted for the water cooler outside the room and placed a single, upside-down paper cup on it.

“That’s just you being your normal cunty self” I hear you cry, but wait…

When the lecturer/teacher/whatever said “it’s a bit simple and easy, is it not?”, Lord Pretentious Wanker MCMLXXXVII here started spouting pish about “the loneliness of the cup” and what it “represents”.

In order to salvage whatever self-respect I had left, I drew this picture of Nolan’s version of Bane:


It was either that, or repeatedly punching myself in the face until I blacked out.

It was a nice distraction, but I’ve got about 40 weeks of this left…

On a slightly related note, I’ve noticed that with all my synth/sequencer purchases earlier in the year and the arty shite I had to buy for college, I can almost function without a computer for 24 hours.
