this is more like a riff

+500 for knowing the reference. done in ms paint & tweaked in picnik. i'm kind of holding back artistically until i get a new monitor for my computer at home. that'll be nice.

this is not digital art



actual sketches! like, by hand! this was done super-quick, like 5 minutes. and i didn't have a model other than a very wiggly, whiny 9 year-old who held still for maybe like 6 seconds. prismacolor and sharpie. oh man, i need to do more figure studies. until i can draw them in my sleep like i did during school. i just noticed that hand was all wrong, with the sharpie... pleh. long day.

this is not depressing


sometimes the best thing after a crappy day at work is walking outside to a gorgeous sunset. i wish i'd had a real camera, and not just my phone. it was amazing. all blue and orange... cheered me up, or at least, it made me stop and appreciate something. i needed it.

this is not a real piece of artwork

i can't draw anything the last few days, well, i can't draw anything to share up here. i'm curling back up into my words as a means of artistic expression, perhaps because i feel more secure in my ability to hide more in the words than i am about being able to hide in my artwork. when i'm drawing, the feelings always come out, it's harder to control them. when i write, the feelings still come out, sure, but i at least can keep them behind a more difficult code to crack.

some artwork is too private, i guess. which is funny, you'd think every piece of art is made to be seen - but there are some pieces that just have to be gotten out, a means of exorcism for the artist, i think. ANYWAY enough ramblings. this blog is for pictures, not postulating.

in hindsight




i found these scans today of a large drawing that i sent to adam's sister nikki back in feb. of 2008. man, i loved that drawing. i was so careful with it. deliberate... you can tell by the deep indentations of pen, how thick the prismacolor is.

here's a quick merge of them in photoshop so you can see the composite...




looking back, i wish i'd sent it to someone else. who needed it more, and who would have appreciated it better.

it's been a week for regrets, i tell you what.
