Anonymous asked: What's the story behind "Untitled Assemblage (Two Boxes)"?
So, last weekend a few anons were asking if I’d explain my artwork - processes, ideas, thought-processes, etc. Yes, happily. If you want to know the details behind any piece of artwork I’ve made just drop me a note and I’ll try to explain what’s going on. My artwork can be found on my website - just give me the gallery and the title of the piece (since you can’t...
Brighton resident 'finds vortex to another... →
Brighton could be the centre of an invasion from dimension-hopping snakes if a report from a resident that a wormhole exists in the city is anything to go by. Since the alleged vortex is only a few streets away from me I will be investigating soon…

I agree that explanations...

Anonymous asked: Some writers I know on here will provide commentary on a paragraph from one of their stories if a follower puts it in their ask box- would you ever consider doing a similar thing for your prints and photos?
I have a few more photographs from the death mask series (the ones these are from: 1, 2, 3) that I want to get online. Maybe over this weekend? And I want to start a new series of lino prints. Oh, and I want to plan to do some more photographs in July/August to keep my Photography 2012-2013 gallery going. Not sure what yet, but in a similar vein to the ones I’ve already done. Volunteer...
I’m putting £10 on me not managing to get any artwork done tomorrow.
Just to let you know: I’m still alive, just been busy with various things. Hope to have some new stuff to post soon. In a bit of a creative desert at the moment, so have started programming a new version of my website instead of making art. If any of you have any ideas for new artwork/photography I could do then please let me know.
Towards the end of May I will be substantially increasing the prices of my limited edition art prints available at http://www.lazaruscorporation.co.uk/shop. This is because of recent increases in postal costs by the Royal Mail and increased costs of materials due to inflation. So, if you want a limited edition handmade print that only costs between £15 and £35 post-free anywhere in the world...

Hoping the Neo-Nazi EDL march finishes soon and they get the fuck out of Brighton.
Every time I’m on the train from London back to Brighton I stare out of the window and look at all the countryside in the South Downs that I’d like to visit and photograph. I’ve been living in Brighton for 9 years now, and I still haven’t made it out to the nearby countryside.
What the hell is up with Tumblr tonight? Posts disappearing, then reappearing, then disappearing again?

Can’t find many images of Lithuanian/Latvian mythological characters. Don’t know if this will make it easier or harder for me to create artwork based around them…
Also, hope to have a few more “Death Mask” photographs from last month’s photo session ready sometime over the next few days.
I need another weekend now - this one seems to have flown by.
andblackandgrey replied to your post: QUESTION: Tell me what you think about this, I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings. I believe its a Destinys Child song. Or Beyonce or something. Probably. That would explain why I had no idea what it meant - my musical tastes got stuck somewhere in the alternative side of the 80s.

It’s Friday night. I’m bored, and I’m recovering from a week-long cold. I haven’t posted anything creative for what feels like years (actually it was last month, but…) So please ask me some questions. I have no list of questions for you to pick from - you’ll have to be creative. Rise to the challenge! http://lazcorp.tumblr.com/ask Anonymous questions are enabled. If you’d...
I think I’m going to continue my theme of mythology in my next few series of photographs and prints, but this time delving into old mythologies from further afield (particularly Lithuanian and Latvia). As usual, any offers from people volunteering to model are welcome. Details can be found here.
The sea mist that is evilly creeping onshore and into the streets of Brighton & Hove looks like something from a horror film. Expecting Cthulhu to emerge shortly…

There is something deeply wrong about colds that strike on a Friday evening on the way home from work, and melt away on a Sunday, in time for you to go back to work on a Monday morning, having lost your entire weekend to illness. I suspect such germs are genetically engineered by capitalist bosses just for the lulz.
Today I have mainly been lying in bed with a cold feeling sorry for myself.
Some notes on Lithuanian Mythology (well, the bits...
I’m slowly forming some plans for some artwork based around a few Lithuanian mythological characters: Medeina, Žemyna, Ežerinis, and Ragana. Lithuania wasn’t converted to christianity until much later than the rest of Europe, and as a result its earlier religion survived long enough to be documented, at least to some degree (compared to England, for example). This also means that the...
courier5 replied to your post: Swans, as usual, were awesome. let us know when you can hear again. Pardon? ;) (yeah, I’ve only just recovered from the November gig at the Roundhouse in London)
Now back to trying to get my head around Lithuanian mythology…
Swans, as usual, were awesome.
Having an evening off from researching Lithuanian mythology for new pieces of artwork. Instead tonight I’ll be going to the SWANS gig in Brighton.
I’ve spent today researching early mythic archetypes for my artwork, from Proto-Indo-European reconstructions to Lithuanian mythology. Some interesting ideas, which might be fleshed out more tomorrow.
I have a spare ticket for Swans at Concorde 2 in Brighton on Tuesday night if anyone wants it (details) You’ll need to meet me at the venue to pick it up, as I’m collecting it (and my ticket) from Concorde 2 on the night.
My name, text, the source URL, and image click-through URL removed from one of my new photographs on only the 2nd reblog. Wow, I think that’s a new speed record for rudeness.
3 new photographs...
…appearing here over the next 70 minutes.
Going through over 600 new photographs, looking for the 3-6 that make the grade…
I’m not sure that this wine is providing any creative inspiration, but it is certainly making me care less about not being creatively inspired.
I have purchased for myself for tonight one bottle of artistic inspiration (sold under the tradename of “South African Merlot”)
