Damien hirst- personal branding.

For the Love of God, 2007, made of platinum, diamonds, and human teeth.

Damien Hirst is a genius at promoting his own work, his pieces have become iconic to this name. I believe they are his "logo's" Even my nan knows who he is by the skull piece only- and this is from someone who forgets her own childrens names. In time i would love my own pieces to have this effect, however i think that time may be years to come in another galaxy...

Today i brought a goat.

Ok, maybe i didnt technically buy it.. i mean its not going to be roaming around my garden anytime soon pulling the weeds up.. although that is a good idea..
Anyway http://www.charity-gifts.org/charities/oxfam-unwrapped/products/goat--4

thats my goat.

This project has made me think alot about what i can give back to people, and life its self. Thats got to be a start right? Plus i think it will make an interesting christmas gift for someone who has everything- now including a goat

:)

my first piece of real inspiration.

http://www.johndahlsen.com/detail_wall/pastel.htmlhttp://www.johndahlsen.com/thumbs/plastic_bags.html


After many nights sleep stricken from lack of inspiration i accidentally come across this artists work and its exactly what ive been looking for... It's simple but effective- it's an organised mess. This is exactly what i hope to achieve by the end of my project, a piece of art work which uses mess to create beauty. As my grandad has always said "whats one mans rubbish is another mans gold".
