Somewhere out there, I think I did another blue PB, but I can’t find it… somewhere in the stacks of art in my office, I guess, or maybe I sold it. Who knows!

Just playing around with some stuff. Stepping back, these guys bring some Yashitomo Nara stuff to my mind, though I’m not sure why, since they really look nothing like his work. Whatevs. I have a 4th colored, but not inked. I don’t know if I like these, yet.

17″x11″ India ink (pen) on bristol. I started this piece a long time ago but only finished it this morning, for no particular reason. It’s mostly just playing around with a collage type concept of some of my favorite things to draw. I think the original intent was to just have bears, then I added the bare lady (I didn’t realize the pun until later), then I threw in some robots and the rest just kept going. I think it’s maybe a commentary on the vicissitudes of childhood and maturity through the lens of the stuffed animal? Who knows. It’s not my job to attach meaning- I just let my psyche run wild and leave it for the art historians to piece together.

I think it would be fun to color, but laborious.

Here’s just the first bear, which I scanned initially to just have a clean copy of.

Splash

Working through this new thing I’m playing with. I feel like this is actually an extension of the pattern stuff I’ve been working with recently. The picture above was done second. This one below was done first on an older piece of paper I already had splashed drawing ink all over. I pretty much hated this piece of paper so I used it to experiment with this process a bit. Whatevs.

Paintings?

 

I guess the question mark is because these were done as ink on canvas, instead of paint. Sorry about the quality. Scans of paintings look terrible, and so do cellphone photos. Whatcha gonna do?

And here’s the same one but with the camera flash on. Some of the ink is nicely metallic, which shows up for squat in photos, but shimmers nicely in real life.
