The last brain fart

This here was the last painting I did of this kind. Well, the last so far. This one I did pretty much the same way as the second one. I started drawing, rotated, drew some more, rotated, drew some more, and on and on. I also decided this one needed more colour than the last one. So I threw some watered down acryllic in the corner and then drew over top of it.

As with the last one, this one is pretty much just random doodles, but in this one I decided to do some homages to some stuff. Like, the one corner is my personal homage to the classic NES game "paperboy". And in the opposite corner I threw in the caterpillar from Alice In Wonderland. Just to name a couple.

but yeah, thats all I can think to say about this one. Hope you enjoy it!!!! and the last two!!! and you come back again some day in the future!

uhhmmm.... BYE!!

Oldy nombre 2

This next painting is another one I did over a year ago. Again, I did this one just because the first one was so much fun. Just a collection of doodles I did just to pass the time.

This one though, I wanted to do something a little more fun, so when I did it, I was constantly spinning the canvas. Now, whenever you look at it, you can spin it in any direction and there will be something to look at. I also tried to throw a little perspective in - in places just to make it look more fun.

I'm always intrigued by the topic of sanity, I don't want to turn into some pretentious hipster and start talking about bullshit like "I wanted to capture the blah blah blah", but yes there are some doodles that are dedicated to the insane mind and religion and astrology and some vague literary things and such, but I won't get into it. If you care enough about those things, you'll be able to spot my shotty attempts when you look through the collage. Also, I tend to draw mushrooms a lot when I'm doing stuff like this, not for any particular reason, I just like to draw mushrooms. There's something fun about them.

As usual, the majority of it is black paint marker on plain canvas, but every now and then I slapped on some water colour and acryllic paint.

and as usual, I don't know what else to say about this piece, so I'll leave now and let you check it out. ...whoever you are. I have one more of these types of paintings that I'll post soon. so, peace out for now!!

Hey everyone! (if anyone is still paying attention that is)

So this painting I've had for a while now. I did this over a year ago, but haven't had the time or ambition to post it online until now.

I got an idea over a year ago of a clock. It was a clock split into the 12 zodiac signs and their corresponding months and signs. With the 4 quarters of the clock divided up into the 4 seasons we would normally experience throughout the year.

I tried to incorporate a bunch of symbols and junk into it, since at the time I thought I was learning all kinds of things about mysticism and mythology and theology and everything else. So I decided to draw it in paint markers on a giant canvas; it didn't come out exactly as I had wished, but it gets the job done. So from there, I thought it looked plain on its own, and I didn't have any ideas of how to fill up the rest of the canvas.

So, for the next 2/3 weeks I just chose to let go. And just let my brain wander around a bit.

Every now and then I would take a few minutes, or a few hours and just let my random thoughts spill out onto the canvas. I would start a section with a random quote I had in my head, or just simple lines and just flow until I recognized something, then I'd turn that into something. I tried to make everything flow into everything else, its choppy, but I'm pretty satisfied with how this turned out.

I hid little tidbits and inside jokes throughout this whole thing. and unless I sat down and explained every doodle to you, I'm not sure if most people will spot them. But anyways, this was my first attempt at something like this, I've since done a couple more, and I will post them as soon as I get a minute or two.

so yeah, until then internets!!!!

Loooong over doo doo

Hey there internets!

It has been fooooooreverrrrr. But I have a good excuse, I like to earn money. So I have to keep my screwing around on the internet to a ....yeah nevermind.

So anyway, I don't have too too much in the way of new drawings, but I do have a painting to show off. I was commissioned by my lady to do a piece for an event she was planning this past month. It was a fundraiser for the Children's Wish foundation. She and 5 of her classmates had to put it on as their final project for their program. So they decided to do a high school glee competition. Yes, completely dedicated to the hit show, Glee.

As much as I would like to hate on the show, I won't right now. Because the event was actually a really big success. The teams were pretty talented, they put together some pretty good performances. AND I got to be an unofficial photographer for the night. AND, I got to unleash my drum-kit for the day, and play with it too!

At the end of the night the event ended up raising over $10,000! If anyone cares to take a look at the event and how it went down, check this out:

Anything you want to find out about it can be found there. and you'll see some of my fine photography skills too :) I didn't take all the pictures, but I did take quite a few.

And I did do a painting for the event's silent auction, and at the end of the night it ended up going for ...I think it was around $120. I don't remember. I do think most of the bids were pity bids, but still, some random person got to take it home, and now a piece of me is in their house. :)

So this is the painting.

Does it fill you with that Gleeful feelin'?

Once again though, there are some slight things that I don't like about it. Like any painting I've ever done. But I think it still turned out ok in the end :) I especially liked doing a Brady bunch style thing.

But anyways, that's it for now. Maybe I'll check back in sometime soon and do a nice big upload all over your browsers. :)
