I've posted this in the visual arts too, cos I think it probably concerns both groups.
I was thinking it would be cool to have the toilets redone. Are there any kind of established rules about how long someone's decoration should get to stay up before someone else does something? They seem to be accumulating crap graffiti.
Anyway I have this image in my head of a wee picture for the back of a toilet door with a caption reading "The sun shines out of your arse" and a nice colourful fluffy hippy picture of a contented someone-or-other bending overwiping it, with rays of golden sunshine shining from the arsehole. I'm thinking rainbows, meadows, bunnyrabbits....
If we could make it happen then we would need to repaint the loo too, as I don't think it would be in keeping with the design that's there already. Something like a creamy shade would be nice.
I asked Magda about it, but she says she's busy. Are there any more talented illustrators out there I could collaborate with out there? Is it cool if I advertise in the workshops bit to try and find someone who could help ( unless you know someone ).
Possibly the other toilet could have a "hippy shit" theme with nice fluffy quotations about the peace and tranquility of your own little private moment on the bog.
I'd like to repaint the whole toilet in a light colour and do something
with the rest of it.
Starting with white walls, I'd like to try something drawing inspiration from what Magda did with the paint pens on the table and with her exhibition in the gallery. So I would have a wee stash of paint pens secreted in a hidey place in Forest and myself and my collaborator/s would get them out just when we felt like it, and add something to the wall. It can be immensely satisfying building up something from wee lines. I love doodling. I love playing with stylised lettering and pieces of story too. I love cutting and pasting things too.
I have a massive pile of collage bits and bobs that I've cut out in a box in the house, I'd like to have the freedom to be able to paste bits from this to the wall as I felt like it. I have an old "Monster Manual" from my roleplaying days many years ago for example. That could be fun. Also got bits and pieces of Foresty material in there.
Comedy fairytale toilets anyone?..
