I C U

A while back I watched A CLOCKWORK ORANGE which left me disturbed and provoked about the future of our humanity, as I see some of it coming to fruition in real life: the increasing amorality and violence in young adolescents. The adults have every right to fear for their lives as their authorities over the… Continue reading I C U

Sketch Diary 7: The Artist’s Decree

Yep, to me a piece of art is never finished, because I will always find something "new" that I had missed previously, and will voraciously fix it. And then it repeats. Ill never be satisfied with the image I have created. Sometimes if I cannot fix it I will tear it up and whip up… Continue reading Sketch Diary 7: The Artist’s Decree

Big Brother

A Tale of Norman: The Conclusion.

Well this is my 'final' pass on Norman's port from last post. Just little detailing with pen and gouache.I don't know for some reason the eyes look lopsided when I take the picture, but physically it's fine.

Well I say more power to them, but there is nothing shameful about using a reference at all. I do, all the time. Especially with portraits. I tried once to draw from… Continue reading A Tale of Norman

Red tape

You hear it everyday. On TV, in the newspaper, words of mouth-the RED TAPE.Not in literal sense, it's a metaphor for obstacles, restrictions, and criteria. Requirements that must be met before certain things can be obtained, and the process is long and downright frustrating.  It's prominently featured in the laws of our land. Because there… Continue reading Red tape

Book Review: THE SUN’S COMING UP LIKE A BIG BALD HEAD by Norman Reedus

I'm not much of a critic, cause I don't really often know what I'm talking about, much less how to talk about something. But then I've seen worse critics, so a little consolation there... For my first ever book review I will introduce you to THE SUNS COMING UP...LIKE A BIG BALD HEAD by Norman… Continue reading Book Review: THE SUN’S COMING UP LIKE A BIG BALD HEAD by Norman Reedus
