Deep Pencil - The blog of Morgan Bell (author of Sniggerless Boundulations)


You have entered the random thinking space of Morgan Bell. These are my musings, things about my life written either off the top of my head or in a completely calculated fashion. This is where i flesh out writing ideas and discuss my life and my opinions.

Author bio: Bellís short story "It Had To Be Done" was first published in the Newcastle Writers Group Anthology 2012, and her short story "Midnight Daisy" was published by YWCA Newcastle in 2013 as part of the She: True Stories project, with live readings on ABC 1233 in February 2014 and Newcastle Writers Festival in April 2014. Bell contributed a short story to the 2014 Hunter Speculative Fiction Anthology called ďThe SwitchĒ which is based on Germanic folklore. It is due to be published in May 2014 alongside award-winning authors such as Margo Lanagan and Kirstyn McDermott. In March 2014 Bell's short story "Don't Pay The Ferryman", an anti-travel piece, was shortlisted for the Hunter Writer's Centre Travel Writing Prize 2014. Sniggerless Boundulations is Bell's debut collection of fifteen stories, touching on themes fear, time, aging, anxiety, and jealousy. The work is experimental in form and length, including flash fiction and vignettes, and is an examination of the horrors of life.

Scott Wade's Dirty Car Art

June 12th 2009 07:46
Take a look at Scott Wade's Dirty Car Art Gallery.

Scott lives on a mile and a half of dirt road. The road base is a blend of limestone dust, gravel, and clay. Driving along Scott's road causes a fine white dust to billow up behind the vehicle and cover the rear windscreen.

hi Lara,

i love how temporary it is, he leaves them out in the weather and as soon as it rains the design disappear . . . spectacular is a great word for it

hi Norm,

the cactus one is very detailed, he has put alot of work into it . . . i dont know if i would have the patience to create something like that, but its great that hes has captured them in photos

I like the one where it looks as if a guy is trying to get out the back window. Very interesting collection.

Some people amaze me with their talent. But what is most amazing is he knows they are very temporary. I don't know that I could put so much work into something that would disappear with a few raindrops.

hi Cheryl,

thats exactly what i thought!

its like those people that put so much effort into making designs and scultures out of sand in public places . . . one gush of wind, or surf, or a sprinkling of rain and a sand-castle is ruined, a lesson you learn from a young age . . . yet it does not deter some people

Wow Morgan,
That is bizarre. Only today I saw a car with flames shooting out of the side that had been drawn in it's dust and I remember thinking, 'wow, we could do so much with dirty cars rather than the usual 'Wash me!' statements scrawled on them.

Good on you for being on the least with my musings..LOL!!!

hi Samantha,

yes ive been reading your mind . . . i learnt about Vulcan mind melds from Star Trek haha

it is a good concept though, hey?

its kind of like found art but with a bit of extra work, i like these pieces that work with everyday items and unusual materials

I should try this. I love to paint on cars. Just little designs. I have a picture I'll have to send you of one of the cars all painted up. I'm such a dirty hippie!
