A Slit Face.

Oh yeah

Look, we're the same!!
Just started this painting. I'ts really awkward. Compositionally it was ill planned, the drawing was neglected and really, the end result is up in the air. Even so... it's just so wierd that I can't give up on it! What will it become!? I've been building the surface of the painting little by little the past few months, So putting this down and working on something until the next step seems apparent won't be difficult :)

I tend to frankenstein things together in photoshop for work so there's always unclean process residue when I initially draw all the little pieces. These were just interesting because they were done on the same piece of paper, so when scanned you can see it's neighbor faintly.
Was watching Crimes and Misdemeanors (Woody Alan)

I'm a very indescisive person so everyone I draw tends to have numerous possible leg orientations and erase marks. Here it looks like she's just stopped tap-dancing.
Fun unintentional things.

That's so...raven.

Random picture done for a work assignment. He came out a little lopsided, but since it's only meant to be maybe an inch big in the image I figure it will be alright. On a side note,  he may have the largest forhead of anyone I've ever seen... and thats coming from someone who knows big forheads!
It's one of those really great days, where you get up early and everything is working properly.  My cubicle is by a window that lets in the morning light, so I got to work in the sunshine, listen to Beyonce and draw Edgar Allan Poe, which was very fulfilling. I was thinking of redrawing him with his hair made of beedy eyed ravens, buut there's already so many pictures of Poe hanging out with Ravens that it seemed a little bit redundant.

Side Tangent: Am sitting waiting for my Friend Laura Knetzger to get here so we can drop her new awesome Bug Boy Zines, off at the local comic shops. You should buy a million copies and spread the word (Yeah, that means you anonymous few who actually read this blog!)

Summer warm up

This little boy and the dog plant were supposed to end up in the same image together.

but they became such different entities

 that I had to place them in their own space.

I'm too dreamy tonight to write anything substantial, but here's a list of things that have been on my mind lately to hold you over till the next post:
1) transparency
2) Repetition
3) The Physiology of nerve endings
4) Graffiti 
5) Freud
6) Self-tanning lotion
