Oldie but a Goodie

CEO

I’ve been a slacker lately, so I pulled something out of the archives. This CEO makes me giggle. He just doesn’t look like he’d be a very effective businessman, but maybe I’m just being racist.

Something to do with Astrology

year of the rabbit

Facebook is all a flutter with talk of new astrology happenings. It’s almost worse than football Sundays. Instead of burdening the already over saturated internet with astrology talk, I bring you 1987: Year of the Rabbit. The bottom left organic vine shapes were an overplayed mistake. This canvas has already been painted over 3 times, however. What’s one more.

Hindsight

abstract new year

More practice in trying to figure out abstract. My only hope is when I look back at these I don’t see a running theme of subconscious vaginas. This attempt Anxiety is the name of the game. At least that was the intent for the two jutting spikes on the left side. Overall I think the red color and repeated angular spikes convey this sort of spastic worry.

This Post has Nothing to do with Justin Bieber

Abstract Christmas

Still not quite to the level where I can tell you what I was going for here but I think I got the abstract part right! Next attempt at a painting will have a point. It’s sometimes a big part of the process.

Heavy Metal Thunder

Harley Davidson

Side Project. One of my dad’s friends cut this puppy out of metal and I was assigned the task of painting it pretty. Nothin’ like imagining a ride on a steel horse in the dead of winter to perk a person up. Ca-Caw!

Got Me in a Stranglehold, Baby.

Rabbit Strangle

I can’t take a decent picture to save my life, first of all. Second of all, I made an attempt to get more ‘painterly’ and pump up the value and it led me to a strangled bunny? There are still some kinks to work out, I just like to take a picture mid process so I can see if everything is not in proportion at all. So far I’m happy with the color and brushstrokes, the rest is uncertain. I realize the bunny might be a little too cutesy, unless I take it over the top. Then it would be the perfect amount, but I was aiming for a more real looking bunny. The man in the mask should also, in my opinion, be looking toward the rabbit. Also, I still want some raining carrots in the sky. Most of all, still a plain composition.

Ability to Walk Away from Projects Unfinished – Still Intact

skull mountain

Rediscovery. 10 years down the line this drawing is going to be finished! I started it about 3 years ago. Worked on it for a day. Forgot about it. Recently, I rediscovered the file (even through a wiped computer fiasco!) and started again only to be distracted by a need to post a comparison. I figure 10 years is a realistic goal if I pick it up every 3 years for  a few hours. Never be impressed by long winded pieces. Stay tuned in! Fragmented sentences. /Post.

Childhood Genius Articulated Astonishingly

prodigy

Yea, I am full of myself sometimes. Hopefully no one came to this post expecting me to talk about the band Prodigy. This will only disappoint. Instead, we have a depiction of some video game I used to play circa second grade (ish). One of two fantastic pictures in the 80 page search that wasn’t undecipherable or “normy” as us genius types call the learning stage that average people just can’t seem to break through. I just wanted everyone to know how early my earth shattering skills started to develop on this Thanksgiving Day of Nostalgia (hopefully said in a loud booming voice). BEHOLD MY POWERS.

Also, I just found an image that I believe is the game I am exactly talking about… with a small amount of questioning. © The Strong.

Let Me Be The Judge of That

neck beard

Another post brought to you by the letter O, as in Outrage.

As I was sitting in class the other day, I overheard a conversation about neck beards NOT being sexy? You can immediately see where the frustration comes into play. Obviously these children are suffering from some sort of disorder that doesn’t allow them to see the beauty in all that is hairy, godlike manliness. Rather than trying to explain to them the folly of their logic, I am following up with a picture counter.

I think that’s all that needs to be said.

Mr. Bawkbagawk

bagawk

Boyfriend is going on a Fable 3 marathon, and there are so many fricken chickens in that game that I had to leave the room and go draw a chicken. This one is based off of my pet bantam rooster ‘Ol’ Yeller’ that my family had. The real value in this picture is how awesome that chicken was.

Ba-GAWK! Or as the french roosters say, ‘Coco rico’!
