A children’s book I was working on as part of a university project.
The Lighted path
Done with colour pencils
Our first university project this year was based on a time span of 123 years. So I decided to focus on generations based on my own family. The first image is of my great great granddad, the second is my great grandma, then there’s my grandma and finally my dad. What do you think each image says about them?
Recently I’ve been reading some philosophy to find inspiration for my comic work and I came across this really interesting topic about Love. Roman Krznaric explains in his talk that love is not just one type of feeling but that there are different variations of Love, which many of us have experienced. I would be interested to know what your thoughts are?
During the weekend me and Jacek went on a trip to the Achill island. We thought it would be nice to spend some time away before I was going back to London. Even though none of these photographs show the beautiful island we went to, I quite liked this serie of black and white photographs I took. We stopped in a small village on the way and as usual my honey just had to fish haha. It was interesting catching him in action :)
I must say I felt ridiculous walking into the post office with this package today, the guy behind the counter even gave me an odd look. I just knew that was going to happen haha. But it feels good to have finally sent off my summer project. To see the summer project please click here
I’ve decided to move all my art related stuff to a new Blog called http://zolwias-art.tumblr.com/. I will only be using this space for all the other stuff I usually post, such as photos, videos, thoughts and ideas.
The Stoles is a three piece indie rock band set up in April 2012. Remarkably for a Dublin-based group none of its members is native to Ireland and the band consists of Antonio (bass, vocals), Jacek (guitars, vocals) and Marcel (drums). Displaying a unique blend of genres and musical directions, the Stoles combines the 60s glamour and 80s post-punk vigor with the psychedelic obscurity and early grunge authenticity. Melodic and instantly recognizable, yet with a certain element of mystery and melancholy, the band doesn’t shy away from venturing into new territories and expanding its influences.
Jacek, Marcel and Antonio’s initial achievements include playing gigs in Dublin’s prominent venues such as Whelan’s, impressive online following (nearly 2000 likes on facebook) and recording in the capital’s legendary Westland studios.
