I'm a miserable twat on tw*tter so on Mastodon I will be your cheerleader. I will give advice! I will be fffuuunnnn. I will be your soundboard. I will provide both cat and dog photos to help heal your day. I will read you a book in my stuffy English accent before you go to bed.


I actually had a really nice time in Cork City today. Despite how exhausted I am. Seriously. Wearing a mask does effect breathing when it is sealed correctly. And you have to push air in and out of filters.

I just cant imagine what it's like using them for a full shift if you have to be moving around a lot.

In much better news. Level 5 Art 1, eight modules, eight full distinctions!

Level 6, Art 2 this September. And then *drumroll* NCAD, Dublin 2021 if I can hit it out of the park 2 years running.

Going to have to plan a lot if I'm living in North West Cork and studying for a four-year in Dublin. But it has the course I'm after.

What a wild ride these last few months have been!

Yes, I love being in my house on the side of a wind swept mountain in the bogs of Ireland.

But I prefer being stuck here on my own terms. Go raibh maith agat.

Fucking hell lads. That sucked.

Recommendations for group video calls that are not Zoom/Microsoft/Apple/Google?

I've been reading a little about Whereby, which looks good...

Any thoughts?

"Where's X gurl?"
"Here's the thing. That's just literally the nearest place with a name to me. But if you have the Eircode-"
"Directions are grand."
"Do you have a pen and paper?"

Government: Look at this cool thing called Eircode! It is unique per house! Meaning google maps can work better!
People of Rural Ireland: Fucking finally!
Courier Companies: HUR DUR WHERE U LIVE.

Put the Eircode into Google maps on your bloody phone and as if by magic you will appear.

Finished this sculpture in stainless steel. it is called 'haiku'.

Today I'll be designing boxes and a logo for my husband as he bakes loads of sweet treats in the kitchen.

That was the plan instead I woke up to the sound of him sharpening his kitchen knives.

Serious question. Doing some research on and religion, communities and beliefs. Why do all the communities look like websites from 2005...

Meanwhile does anyone out there know of any really active communities about the above?

My favourite types of phone calls from my mother are the ones that start "Right, don't panic, but..."

A lot of my art is exploring story telling. Here's a fictional example:

UK: Man in his 30s in hospital after assault.

Ireland: Padraig O'Sullivan (35) in hospital after encountering Mike O'Shea (47) while out checking cattle. Locals say this has been going on since the Kelly's sold the farm back in the 40s and Maire O'Sullivan passed away in the 1980s causing the two community families to come to blows over the distribution of the land. O'Shea is due to appear in court this Wednesday.

And I am done. Last assignment in, digital portfolio and exhibition submitted. Now they can all feck off.

Today is college deadline day.

They extended it to May 1st but I am keeping to the original so I don't slack off until the last minute.

I have put together project proposals, report, spreadsheets in excess of tens of thousands of words and I still can't bash out 800 on this fucking essay about ICT.

So far I have "social media bad. Here is source."

I figure its time I make a post. Hi, I'm Flynn. I'm an artist, prop maker, computer programmer, LARPer, Flow Artist, and aspiring Clown.

As an artist, i love sculpting, conte crayon, and acryllics. My art flows in to my prop making, where I love to incorporate the use of robotics and electronics to make certain props come to more life.

I work in Cybersecurity, nuff said.

I am studying to be a Clown alongside Circus Freaks! Its an amazing experience.

Nice to meet everyone!
