Just found this on my computer from back in college. It's part of a series of Photoshopped images of myself I did for a self-portrait brief. I still really like this one (because I look a bit like Mr Bean) but my overall project stank and I got quite a bad mark. It gave me a bit of practice for the Fergi series though.
A few doodles to start me off on something. I need to look at a couple of books. There will be more of this stuff soon, but better. I suddenly have so much to draw for so many things and can't seem to find any time.
I've working on a new website for my drawings and stuff which is why I've not posted anything in a couple of days. It's getting there and should be uploaded sometime this week.
A quick bit of linkage to one of my favourite sites of all time: InterestingIdeas.com.
It's a site about outsider/vernacular art, roadside curiosities and wonky non-artist made art. It's not particularly pretty or anything and I don't check it very often but I just dang love it. I found it a few years back just by typing "interesting ideas" into my address bar. I rate it so much that I'll probably pimp it in a bit more detail another time. Have a rummage around and you'll find something good.
Also, folks who know will probably notice it's where I got my favourite forum avatar from.
Well a comic of sorts - it's not exactly George & Lynne. While I was doodling that one tree I thought this up then I decided I might as well draw it.
I've decided to write a few things about previous bits and pieces I've done, so there are examples of my work up and about before I finish my website. I'll also link to these posts in the sidebar so they're easier to find amongst my usual daily stuff. I'll start with the stuff I did for "Rouge" at Flesh in Edinburgh (the above post).
Hello again. How are you? I'm quite tired.
I'm trying to post something every day on this here place. I guess when I've nothing brand new, I'll post something old that maybe hasn't been seen by too many people. Here we go:
This is a kinda test idea thing I did for a comic I was thinking about. I never got much further than this, but it's still something I'd like to follow up. I reckon seeing the owls and mice duke it out would make a good silent comic. Kinda like in Monkey vs Robot by James Kochalka. I'd probably focus a lot on their wee cultures though, because it's really damn hard to work out how the mice would kill the owls. Maybe other animals could get involved.
I was trying to draw some watercolour things for ages, four at once, but they were going nowhere. I had to give up - they just looked awful. Sometimes you can see a picture in your head but your hand just says "sorry buddy, today I am not doing this". I got up all angry but sat back down and decided I would at least draw something. I did these guitars in a few seconds and I like them.
See you later.
