me and you mr.sneed

me and sneed decided that starting flemz up again since he has a computer now would be fun. I did this quick sketch in photoshop, i left my armature layer on just for kicks, and tinted it blue just like back in the day of drawing with blueprint pencils :)

when the help menu mocks you...

completely random.. but i was using isquint today to compress a video and i went up to the help menu to see if perhaps there was an "update" button under there but no... i was in for something more.. hehe

i woke up and went to sleep a recordhead...

all i can do is think of practicing dj'ing, it has always been something i wanted to do for such a long time, to finally have a set of tables to me is more than i can explain. either way. i got my first batch of records this weekend, and im excited.. enjoy.

the guilt made me do it...

it is way too late or early in the morning for me to be doodling but.. in some odd guilt trip of not posting that much - i figured it was the least i could do. here is an oldie and the fresh-off-the wacom-grill-sketch cheers

in spirit of doodles and more

i went and shot in this abandoned building the other day and here is a sketch i worked up from a series i'd like to do eventually when i get time... as i was walking around this feeling as if being in some horror movie where things were busting through the roof and floors overwhelmed me - or perhaps its too many video games that made me feel that way.. either way - i thought it would be fun to bring my curly sketches i've been doing to life in this space.. here is a rough sketch of integrating them into the environment - this also extends back to me wanting to work with photographs and models awhile back... which will also happen one day too :)

and the other.. is something in response to my last post about my characters. this is a crappy picture from my phone BUT none the less. i wanted to share. enjoy.

the voice in the doodles...

I can't really define every theme, moral, or question that my artwork has touched on.. but i can't really recall the last time I really wanted to change what it was saying. I think after proudly presenting my friend my newly finished sketchbook, and him brining up how much my characters have changed since I first met him - it made me start to think about what my new characters had been trying to say.. everything from wearing skull mask, having holes in their stomachs, and pouring our black beautiful curls through their holes - they don't truly have a strong concept that i am trying to translate... either way.. more of where it is going rather then where they are at now..

i think all of my sadness / depression / despairity / hopelessness / overwhelming feelings I get about our country is only half dealing with our government and how they run things, but the other half is US... the people. I feel we are so separated from the news, and only go to the first layer to try and get the real story or overall tone and state of the nation. Either way... not that it should take us so much effort to TRY and figure out the truth, but I'm reminded every time I see a George W. Bush sticker on a car that there is still people out there who just don't know, understand, or care to seek out the truth.

I just think i might pursue this topic in the next progression of my characters.. but even if i didn't - i just wanted to be glad that all of my friends at least care enough to follow the issues going on, and know that it's important to care, and not feel helpless and overwhelmed.

late night rant. sorry. here's some cool graffiti by my house to end with.
