Headache by graemestevens

Headache

So...today I got a new haircut. I seem to have come away from the experience with something of a niggling headache as well but I'm sure it's nothing a few painkillers won't fix.
Very loosely inspired by the works of Gunter Brus, who is fast becoming a favourite artist for me. Can't think why.
Go on, view it against the black...before bed...
Super Yikes! Looks like it's time for a barber
August 21st, 2014  
@maishanny Well...a new barber anyway! And thanks :)
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens Oops! Typo… that's what I meant. :)
August 21st, 2014  
Yes! Nightmares! Very gruesome.
August 21st, 2014  
@maishanny At least for a change it wasn't me losing it... ;)
@tabarlett Excellent, just the look I wanted :)
August 21st, 2014  
Excellent.
August 21st, 2014  
@spanner Thank you
August 21st, 2014  
that's beyond a close shave. very cool!
August 21st, 2014  
Brainectomy perhaps, hope not. Glad it's not a colour image :-)
August 21st, 2014  
No talking... even if you can (with no brain). Aaagh!
August 21st, 2014  
Hannibal Lecter!
August 21st, 2014  
Why I view your images before bed, I'll never know! Very cool and nightmare inducing! Thanks. LOL
August 21st, 2014  
@hippiechick13 Thanks very much :)
@hermann LOL, I don't think there would be much to remove - and it's disturbingly close to this in colour as well...
@rosiekerr I promised not to tell where I got the haircut...
@gigiflower Clarise....
@cailts You're more than welcome - sweet dreams ;)
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens I'll be right over!
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower Phoning locksmith.
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens Love you too!
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower I've never like U2. Bono is too far up himself for my liking.
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens HAHAHAH you are so tricky :) However I have NEVER liked U2 either ;) Hated those coloured glasses he wears!
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower Not to mention their "music"
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower @graemestevens
oh I have been fart arsing around trying to take a photo choose a photo do something with a photo and my brain was melting and I forgot to start looking at posts - well this fixed any meltdown - the comments and the image - both superb!
August 21st, 2014  
P.S don't let your brains fall out - bahahahahaha - oh who are we kidding?
August 21st, 2014  
Why do I look at your compositions right before bed?!! Gruesome and stomach-churning. eeeks
August 21st, 2014  
@annied @graemestevens Oh is there a photo to look at? I never look at the photos any longer..........I just start reading the comments!!!! HAHAHAHA
August 21st, 2014  
@annied Why thank you kind lady, pleased as always to have been of assistance. And I thinks it's a bit to late to stop that.
@gigiflower I'm getting the same way myself!
@johenn That's a question I can't answer, but have a great sleep!!!
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower @graemestevens that is why I think it took me so long to get here hahaha busy reading
Oh and Graeme - the stories surrounding Gunter Brus and the "Kunst und Revolution" are interesting and his artwork is both creative and disturbing :) I can see why you are attracted
August 21st, 2014  
Freaky as always! :-)
August 21st, 2014  
@annied @graemestevens @gigiflower hello and morning one and all. Does look slightly sore. Hope you didn't pay barber too much. Perhaps whilst there is a gaping hole you could get someone to top up the cotton wool stored in there?
August 21st, 2014  
I apologise now for that comment before hubby maybe stumbles across it. He will say I am teasing and pulling legs too much....bar humbug.
August 21st, 2014  
Oh it appears you may indeed have a splitting headache. Try two aspirin and sitting in a darkened room, oh and avoid chocolate that can cause it.
August 21st, 2014  
Do you pull legs out in NZ? Tried to explain to eldest what it meant.....unsurprisingly 5 yr olds don't get it....anyway I'm sounding boring now. Toddle dooooo.
August 21st, 2014  
@newbank hahahahahahaha and bar humbug indeedy
August 21st, 2014  
@chippy1402 no I think you have it all wrong. Don't listen mr s. Chocolate helps and solves and soothes and comforts at all times. Though I know I don't need to tell a fellow chocoholic this. Eat it it will help.
August 21st, 2014  
I have an appointment at the hairdressers today...thinking of cancelling!!!
August 21st, 2014  
hairdressers do that to some people - nicely illustrated
August 21st, 2014  
Woah now this is scary great shot
August 21st, 2014  
Are you sure you're you're not a reincarnation of Zeus. Athena, his daughter, sprang fully formed from his head. Wonder what you're hatching?????
August 21st, 2014  
@newbank @annied @graemestevens - MORNING!!!! Ms Newbank, please don't show your 5 year any photos from Mr Stevens project. You want your darling 5 year old to grow up with no hysteria. Nor talk about pulling legs. Maybe try and explain to your 5 year old that there are more sheep in NZ than people, and given this, most people in NZ are married to sheep. I'm sure your 5 year old will understand immediately.
August 21st, 2014  
I can't even imagine how you do all of these photos but they are super clever. I agree, the Hannibal comes to mind!
August 21st, 2014  
@andrewkru thanks very much :)
@chippy1402 I couldn't live without chocolate but I'm quite happy to sit in a darkened room...
@pinkpaintpot you'll be fine...honest...
@shannejw Thanks, just one slip...
@tracelee thank you very much
@ceilidh that just gives me more ideas...
@kt8ird there are days when I'm not sure either but today involved a "bald cap", acrylic paint and some oatmeal face scrub...and thanks very much!
@annied He's definitely a favourite - very creative, dark, disturbing...lovely man...
@gigiflower are you saying my wife is a sheep???
@annied @gigiflower @newbank Yes, we do pull legs here...and whatever else we can get our hands on, however the difference between NZ and Australia is that we're not all thieving convicts who have mainly settled on the coast in the hope of hi-jacking a passing ship and escaping to somewhere better. We also win at sports, about which I care very little, which holds true of Crowded House as well so when Australia says Crowded House are Australian...I'll agree every time. Give back the pavlova though. You know damn well it's not yours.
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens hahahahahaha I would like to believe your rant except that I think there are more of you here than in NZ - yep yep!
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens Possibly. I neither confirm or deny. Backing our quickly now.

@graemestevens @annied @newbank Is that why ALL New Zealanders are coming to Australia???? And you win at sports? Please give 3 examples over the past 5 years. Please take back Crowded House but more importantly Russell Crowe. I make a mean chocolate pavlova straight from the bosom of Nigella. You can have the boring pavlova with your passionfruit, yep take that. But leave the bosom of Nigella with me :)
August 21st, 2014  
@annied Yes, those who have left NZ for Australia have improved the intelligence of both countries... ;)
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens oh you are a witty chap! Took you a few minutes to come up with that one though hahahahahahaha
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower @graemestevens I don't care what you both say I like Crowded House but not crowded houses
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower @annied @newbank We do not want Russell Crowe either. I will not give 3 examples as I do not care, as previously stated. You may keep Crowded House. This conversation is over as I am now fully engaged in complex thoughts regarding Nigellas bosom. Good evening to you.
August 21st, 2014  
Ouch!!! fav and follow :0)
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens I knew the minute Sam mentioned Nigellas bosom you would be gone - a blubbering wreck - lol
August 21st, 2014  
@beluga thank you very much :)
August 21st, 2014  
@annied I'm not blubbering precisely...
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens say no more hahahahahaha
August 21st, 2014  
@annied @graemestevens I'm the blubbering mess........have you seen her bosom? Just magnificent. And she cooks as well! She is marriage heaven :)
August 21st, 2014  
@gigiflower she does ahave a very ample bosom and the fact she love chocolate and can cook is a real plus - I may send a proposal
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens @gigiflower obviously my mind is elsewhere as my typing above was appalling hahahaha
August 21st, 2014  
@annied @graemestevens LOL LOL One can only think your mind and your typing skills crashed and burned as you were thinking about your upcoming wedding. I'd be more than happy to be your bridesmaid. And Nigella can make the chocolate pav as the wedding cake. No stupid passionfruit allowed.
August 21st, 2014  
@annied @graemestevens chocolate? I didn't think you liked chocolate??? I don't have much to add on the Aussie /NZ debate.... frankly I'm lost and its too far to come too on a plane. Even for chocolate pav.
August 21st, 2014  
@newbank I like chocolate @graemestevens likes Nigellas Bosom but doesn't like Crowded House or Pavlovas and @gigiflower well she makes a mean chocolate pav straight from Nigellas bosom - so there you have it in a nutshell hahahahaha
August 21st, 2014  
Now this is really cool Graeme.
August 21st, 2014  
So creative, as always. I know see a shot of yours and recognize it right away when it's in the style of horror movie!
August 21st, 2014  
So creative so dark so you !!
August 21st, 2014  
Mwahhhhahhhahh......very scary and fabulously done!!
August 21st, 2014  
Marvellously macabre!
August 21st, 2014  
@annied @newbank @gigiflower In a nutshell? You cant seriously put that and Nigellas bosom in the same sentence!!!
August 21st, 2014  
@andy3168 Thank you very much :)
@taffy Thanks very much...I must be getting predictable. Would you believe I never watch horrors?
@scolgs Thanks very much indeed
@jesperani Thanks very much...I borrowed my daughters "bald cap"...not even sure why she has one...
@lynnilou Thank you kindly, one tries... :)
August 21st, 2014  
Well I have taken al your shots on the chin so to speak but was truly horrified to look at this.....eerily realistic....gave me quite a start.....you are truly in a bad way Graeme.......hope you last till morning!
August 21st, 2014  
OMG! Macabre must be your middle name! I recommend early to bed, early to rise and a brisk run before breakfast!
August 21st, 2014  
@graemestevens the pavlova belongs to NZ! Everyone knows that!
August 21st, 2014  
Split headache and do not allow screaming. What an agony. Great shot with one eye in prime focus.
August 21st, 2014  
Excellent as usual! Very cool processing!
August 21st, 2014  
what a cracker.....sorry Graeme but just had to smile at this....hope it heals well...
August 21st, 2014  
Yikes! LOL! Great processing!
August 22nd, 2014  
@happypat I made it! As for the Pavlova...I know!!!!
@yrhenwr It seems to be...as for a run...I have a car...
@yaorenliu Thanks very much :)
@jess1204 Thanks very much - took me ages to merge the line of the "bald" cap" to my actual skin...nearly got bored and gave up!
@tellefella Thanks very much - seems to be okay at the moment...
@homeschoolmom Thanks very much :)
August 22nd, 2014  
This is disturbing, and I like it! You must get the most feedback of anyone on here! How do you do it?
August 22nd, 2014  
@tammyputney How do I do these photos? It's just a very dark room, one source of light and in this case a "bald cap" from a joke shop, some black acrylic paint and some quality oatmeal face cleanser...and an idiotic tendency to make a fool of myself! As for the inspiration - I really don't know. I don't watch horror movies r anything (not because I don't like horror though...I just find them a bit cheesy)...also, thank you very much :)
August 22nd, 2014  
Omg.....you need more than a Tylenol for that buddy.Cant even drink with your mouth sewed up like that.Maybe you can wear a beer hat and pout it directly into your cranium.I love this dark,creepy hideous image.fav
August 22nd, 2014  
Oh good lord, now I need a drink.....Awesome image!!
August 22nd, 2014  
@graemestevens nutshell - I did and I will ;-P
cheesy horror rocks but Asian - particularly Japanese horror is the best - I like much from Europe too but it is often harder to get
August 22nd, 2014  
@mzzhope Thanks very much :) It's stopped hurting now, although to be fair I thinks that's because I've gone numb
@kamen088 Thanks very much - I need one too. Again. Always.
@annied I've tried horror movies...but I much prefer sinister books
August 22nd, 2014  
@graemestevens I like them too hahahaha and books about the mind of a serial killer and books about said serial killers lol
August 22nd, 2014  
@annied People shouldn't be allowed to be serial killers. As far as I'm aware, muesli is relatively harmless...
August 22nd, 2014  
@graemestevens muesli harmless - I think not
August 22nd, 2014  
@annied The more I thought about that statement the more I realised I was incorrect...I would think it's damn near lethal to a sensitive bowel.
August 22nd, 2014  
@graemestevens HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA indeed!
August 22nd, 2014  
My head hurts looking at this! And....I want to open my mouth really wide! And....those eyes again!!
August 22nd, 2014  
@harbie It didn't hurt a bit...I really don't know what you mean about my beautiful eyes though... ;)
August 22nd, 2014  
I think I'd be thinking about a new hair technician.
August 22nd, 2014  
@golftragic Just thinking about it then?
August 22nd, 2014  
Such a creative shot, always love your photos like this!
August 22nd, 2014  
yikes...looks painful....
I wish I could get this kind of low key shot...you are so talented
August 22nd, 2014  
@lilminimonka Thanks very much :)
@livvy Thank you so much - I use a very dark right with the only source of light being a softbox app on the iPad, a tripod, ISO usually about 200, shutter speed about 1.6 seconds and f stop around 4.5 ish...and a whole lot of luck
August 22nd, 2014  
Wow!
August 23rd, 2014  
Take two aspirins, and call me in the morning.
August 23rd, 2014  
@bill_fe The aspiring didn't work...I went for duct tape instead
August 23rd, 2014  
OUCHIE...Clara had nothing on this. How many bandaids did this one take?
August 26th, 2014  
@amandal LOL, only a full packet...
August 26th, 2014  
OMG, just saw this and followed your "advice" to view on black. Nightmares to follow, I'm sure. Amazing shot!
August 27th, 2014  
@ksmale Thanks very much :)
August 27th, 2014  
Nasty gash you got there… Creepy… :-)
August 28th, 2014  
@bankmann Seems to be healing okay...nothings oozing out anyway!
