Graffiti Revisited IV

Commentary on essay - word Count 554 - I have to follow a framework for analysis, which includes: an overview; the structure (layout, narrative, paragraph structure etc.); grammar, lexical sets and phonology. I am about 2/3rds done, but only have a limited amount of words left.  Thankfully, I don't have to state too much of the obvious - how ever else can a speech be, but in first person? The clue is in the word 'speech' *duh*

Graffiti - a soap box for free thinkers.  Not sure that I have the courage of my convictions LOL.  This time last year, I used the Gorillaz video for my PP on graffiti.  I loved Jamie Hewlett's work with Damon Albarn on the videos and CD covers.

2D cartoon/graffiti artwork - Gorillaz 'Tomorrow Comes Today'

3D cartoon/graffiti artwork - Gorillaz 'Stylo' (feat. Bruce Willis)

I've got to stop net flicking and carry on with the work, but for the record, I love Bruce Willis in 'Stylo' - inspired casting.

I have been on Facebook, reading a Second Year FdA English Studies student, reflect that she has written 800 words, only 4,200 to go.  Right now I feel for her and worry about this time next year.  Right now in my little masterpiece, I am trying to "urge" people to rethink art with my adverbial imperatives and I am at least 150 words over.


I went well over 1,000 words, trying to pare back now.  Lots of waffle (there's a surprise) - I have to shed 126 words somehow.  Damn it, I won't go to bed until this is done :-/

Done it - essay 928 (may consider revising); commentary 769.  Neck hurts, now off to bed :-)
