i actually got not one, but two photographers to come to my studio and take pictures of the things i have been up to these past years that just cant be crammed into even the largest of scanners. one is no less than an art historian and photographer, a dream combo come true, but something about the poor lighting in my studio and number of mediums i cram onto paper, or just my delusions as to what i am drawing versus the photographic evidence to the contrary, it always makes these things never really seem to come out as i thought they appeared. but, i have decided to at least make a lazy post of it as this site is rather neglected as of late.
so, many many thanks to andreas baudisch for the photos, i took some minor liberties with levels and such to try to get it closer to what i think i see when i am in my studio.
stuff i have been going on and on about the past few years. photo by andreasbaudisch.de
stuff yet again in progressions, i have an appointment to get some real photos made, not the cell phone variety. so, sometime in the next few weeks i may finally update this thing and put some new stuff in the portfolio section.
til then you can just watch adam curtis docus on youtube:
here is that big as drawing which i have been mining for nearing two years now, soon the pick axe will be placed down (relatively speaking soon, some people might say a couple more months of working on one drawing is in itself a long time…)
my photos look like crap
i should get a new camera
i mean this one is like, 6 years old…
really dlsr or something better
the details are turned to mud
mud cake for all
glare/blur, awww yiss
i cannot take a straight photo/draw a straight line
and here is some sketch book shit, it is raw, real and more stupid than i can be held accountable for.
fill a page with shit
watch TV and draw
too much rick and morty stuff got me wanting to do a comic
man on right got tummy tuck and a small chest adjustment.
reworked, now with more HD rib fidelity
this wheel barrow brings home the grain.
yeah i dont know how to draw a wheel barrow, but im learning and one day i will master them.
post reading some other artists fine thoughts and images, can you guess who?
Inch worm, inch worm Measuring the marigolds You and your arithmetic You’ll probably go far.
fuck the rails
just this guy up in the top left, he wants to be your friend.
rails again and giving way
life in space continues on the back burner of ideas.
gutsfield to infinity, this is a stupid drawing, all 2h 0.3mm lead, i make it while watching tv cause im too lazy to work on the big drawings.
more sketches, random, wheelbarrow studies to explain crop gathering techniques. re-worked bits of anatomy, tidying up this big bastard some, and to no end the hatching which would look as if i did nothing at all, thats the magic, looks like i added nothing since the last post, but in fact spent hours drawing little lines and erasing off some unwanted smudge, wanted smudge, fine smudge and intentional smudge re-applied in order of value.
what’s new here… well there is a new leg in the NEVERENDINGWIP. and i worked on that leg to no end, some prior me came in before and drew a tiny tiny knee on that man, and it looked silly, and more wrong than is acceptable. funny yes, but wrong. the knee has been adjusted with a scalpel. and and…. yes his legs are long, but hey, el greco up yours too. also, random shit.
and hey, why not listen to someone smart say why emotion is central to art and he even means urinals in galleries or something about religion being these spaces of wonder before the art was moved out to the galleries, fuck it, or just listen to sleep.
