Had a fairly terrible Thanksgiving, but I did watch the Seventh Seal with the sound off and the new Crystal Castles on, which was real nice. They worked really well together, unsurprisingly. Double the dose of dystopia and death.
Last week was incredibly busy, and I only got two pages drawn. HOWEVER, I’ve only got one more day of school before Thanksgiving break starts, which will hopefully entail drawing a mess of pages, listening to the new Crystal Castles album, and watching Ingmar Bergman films. I am excited.
The first three pages from the third chapter. The main story in this chapter is a weird mix of Garden State and Requiem for a Dream, which should be fun to draw.
I also watched For a Few Dollars More recently, which was beautiful and inspiring. A+, Mr. Leone.
Hello. Still no power at homebase, so I’m staying at a hotel in Boston. Heading into Rhode Island tomorrow to check out RISD, so if you happen to be in the area and see a pale teenage boy with thick frames and halloween colored converse, say something.
This week has been weird as hell. All I’ve done is draw and listen to Sonic Youth and read a whole bunch of books all day every day. It’s starting to feel like groundhog day, I suppose. I’m not explaining it well. I’ll probably be able to post work on Sunday or Monday
I posted this earlier, but there was something messed up with the color depending on what monitor I viewed it on. So here’s the final thing. I had a lot of fun drawing this kinda androgynous punk character and coloring it in photoshop last week, so I thought I’d do it again.
Things from this week:
Some sketches, a Toth study, and another sketch with some quick colors thrown on. I guess I was into drawing forests the last few days? It wasn’t a conscious decision.
Things I’ve been into this week:
I finished drawing Bitter Liquid about a year ago. Feels like work on that book was eons in the past. I still haven’t really looked through it. blehrgh.
