Anyway – Here is a look at some artwork I’ve been accumulating these past few days since I took an unplanned two-month hiatus on anything involving ink bottles and repetitive cross-hatching. Alas, I am back at work (digitally, this time), but my drive still feels overheated so most of the stuff I make is staying in the garage for work.
Related (see below): ‘Northern Exposure’ just invaded the list of one of my top favorite television shows, and if you have not seen it before, fix that. Seriously. Like, go out and buy it. Steal it. Whore for it, because it has some of the best television writing I have ever seen and it’s been like an old, crotchety yet humble professor to me in my recent adventuring in screenwriting. You won’t regret it.
This year is starting out just fine, and now that a few traveling plans are in the works I feel very determined about everything else in my life. I even hemmed a shirt the other day, and believe me, that’s progress even Congress would applaud.
I stayed at a cottage with a friend for a few days in New Hampshire. We shopped, we skulked, we hassled house spiders and I nervously watched as she got a dermal piercing done by a man with hands as shaky as a recovering junkie. It was good to get away for a few days and not care about anything, except for writing half-assed fan fiction until 6am and eating Pop Tarts for dinner. Now, I feel perfectly fueled to tackle a bunch of art projects that I have been neglecting, rejecting, or just plain and simply want to set on fire (but we’ll just label that one performance art).
Sketches I did while I was away:
SPEAKING OF ANCIENT PROJECTS THAT NEED TO GET THE FUCK FINISHED, here is an old WIP from 6 years ago that was inspired by Jose Packard from Twin Peaks:
Oy. Slowly but surely… And last but not least, I bought a punching bag.
