Caffeine has a strange effect on my brain. It always makes me… crazed. I just feel creative and have too much energy. This usually manifests itself in the form of “art” and conversation. Which is an art in its own right. Usually my coffee induced mania gives rise to the strangest of drawings. I wish I could ascribe any sort of meaning or importance to these drawings but that can only be done retroactively. To be completely honest my “natural” style is really just sort of a Rorschach test: I never know what I’m drawing until I’m about a quarter through and realize that squiggles on the paper look kind of like a two headed man or what have you. The funnest part, for me, is refining these squiggles into semi-coherent images while maintaining clean, simplistic lines.
Anywho, here are close ups of those three coffee induced abominations with the best explanation that I can manage.
A two headed person. One head is a paranoid old man and the other is a blind baby. Also there is some sort of toothed vagina on its back.
A baby reaching out to some sort of undead creature.
A goblinesque creature that has torn his mouth open by smiling so much is reaching up for some unseen treasure.
A simple doodle made for no other reason than this blog desperately needs a new post.
For anyone who knows me and also reads this blog, let’s face if you don’t know me you aren’t reading this, you will no doubt notice that this is my “natural” style. Which I have heard arguments that I should I simply keep with this and make the bizarre, zany stories that such an art style lends itself to. Considering I’ve yet to do anything outside of the B&M* department there really is not a reason I shouldn’t. Except that action poses are difficult in such a style. Nothing that practice couldn’t handle though, I suppose.
If anybody read this blog I’d ask for your input. Which I guess is what I have just done…
Too many decisions to be made and too much time to spend not making them.
I still do not have my precious コンピュータ in my possession, so this is as fancy as I care to get without a drawing pad and photoshop combination.
For all of you keeping track of my blog, Alex, you have no doubt noticed my lack of posts in recent weeks. This is due to the fact that I have moved back to Houston. My things, however, have not joined me yet. This situation should be rectified by the fourth of august: when my computer and drawing pad are once again in my possession.
