    On print, deep-seat­ed fears of judg­ment and labour reg­u­la­tion essays.

    These images have been sit­ting on my hard dri­ve col­lect­ing dig­i­tal dust for almost nine months now. I shot these amidst enraged key­board slam­ming episodes and stren­u­ous attempts to con­coct an extend­ed response for my labour reg­u­la­tion sub­ject. Thank­ful­ly, all that is in the past now. Part of the rea­son why I’ve back-burnered these images is my deep-seat­ed fear of judg­ment for my sud­den leap towards print. I have had this tee for almost three years and have not worn it aside from the occa­sion­al 32 degrees cel­sius day, which nat­u­ral­ly calls for a thin pyja­ma tee sit­u­a­tion at home. As such, it is of much trep­i­da­tion yet relief that I now show all the inter­web eye­balls my essay-typ­ing get­up. Here’s to my attempt to post more sar­to­r­i­al updates.
