The art of cost-cutting

The NSW government makes major cuts to TAFE art courses, effectively ending many art schools by making them unaffordable. Premier Barry O’Farrell justifies this by claiming artists have no prospects of finding work. I used myself as a case for the defence. Many people however don’t think I’ve got a real job.

One of many doodles created with pen on paper during meetings or while on the phone. They aren’t planned nor do I sketch them out in pencil beforehand. The results are straight from the spontaneous part of my subconscious. Some people think I’m not paying attention in the meetings but the opposite is true. These random creations stop my mind from wandering and help me focus on what’s being said.
