Antiperistalsis

reversed peristaltic action of the intestines, by which their contents are carried upward”

 

Whilst living in Vetland and cramming canine cranial nerves at any spare moment, opportunities to let a sharpie loose on scrap paper is but rare. Last week I was lucky enough to fly to Queensland for the weekend, here are the results 🙂

To explain the above, in the rad old game of ultimate frizzle, a “D” refers to a defensive move, usually someone throwing themselves in the path of a flying object to stop it reaching the offensive team.

STELLA AND BECKY MOVE OUT!!!!!

Yes, in a few very short weeks I will be moving out of home closer to uni with my fab friend Stella. EEP! Here are some celebratory insight “draw my life” comic strip episodes that I am certain will become part of our day to day lives.

Image

It is inevitable that I will become Stella and Adrian’s official third wheel. Due to my obtuse inability to discern romantic moments, I will crash ALL of their private dinner dates. You’re welcome.

Image

With our student budget in mind, Stella and I are keen to hit up the bulk shopping. Alas, I have an inkling that we might get a little bit too excited and perhaps bring home a pet cow, or buy so much glue that it leaks, accidentally glueing the hospital cat to the floor. Sigh.

More comic strip draw my life adventures featuring Stella and possibly a cat to come!

I renally like you.

Happy Tuesday!

Here is another instalment of anatomy art as commissioned by my fabulous friend with a fringe, Phwite.

Watercolour and thin sharpie on embossed card. I used paintbrushes on purpose and finger-painted by accident.

Renal physiology lectures are more enjoyable than other lectures due to the fact that the more you talk about making urine, the more you think about making urine, the more urine you have in your bladder, the more you need to get rid of that urine. A typical timeline for the lecture is this, 15 minutes in, I glance around the room, most girls are starting to act a little “shifty”, some boys tend to touch their inguinal area subtly (although this is perhaps normal.) By 20 minutes in, concentration levels are lower than usual. By 29 minutes, the first lonely student, more than likely of the female kind, breaks the infamous “pee seal” for the rest of the class by quickly sneaking out the front doors to the bathroom. From then on is a cascade of open floodgates, one by one students leave their seats to relieve themselves, often than not more than once in the last half hour of the lecture. This rises exponentially and, I guarantee you, every student will have used the bathroom before the class is over- a clear celebration of urination.

I’ll leave you with this thought- who would you donate one of your kidneys to?

PS. Google what a cow’s kidney looks like. I dare you.

SPLISH SPLASH I was taking a barf!

Dilemma: Bored. On a Plane. What is “no wifi”.

I found myself in this exact mindset on a trip to the Gold Coast last week.

Enter the spew bag challenge! No, it’s not a rainbow display of the rising lunch, rather a sharpie dance on a free blank canvas.

These bags are inspired by Sydney artist  Mrs Eaves’ (Gemma O’brien) spew bag challenge! Check out her work at http://www.spewbagchallenge.tumblr.com or if you instagram #spewbagchallenge

Here’s to up-chucking some chunky fine-ness! And remember that turbulence adds to the character 😉

To the beat of my paintbrush

What is a coronary vessel? Why is Caudal Vena Cava? When does the heart have a right tentacle? 

I could make like the boring kids who cram over a textbook, gaining wrinkles, headaches and grumpiness. OR I could bring my pain set to university.

Materials- Sharpie, watercolour, embossed card

I was able to make the ripples in the “blood” by first painting the board where I wanted the paint to run in water then dripping dense blobs of watercolour from unpremeditated heights.

If anyone else has smashed their desire to not study by creating something I would love to see 🙂
