#101 – cbg difficulties

I’m not sure what kind of wood this is made of. I’ve sanded and degreased it but I’m still getting oily spots. The Micron pens definitely won’t work on this. They smear too easy even on paper. The sharpies are drying O.K. but the tips are wearing too fast. At least they’re cheap. It took the entire day to get this far. I didn’t want to start applying the ink so soon but I was losing my pencil lines. Even pencil doesn’t stick too this wood. I have a big smudge mess going on in the center, I hope that cleans up. I’ll let it dry over night and see what happens t’mar.

Cheap Trick – Surrender

Mother told me, yes, she told me I’d meet girls like you.
She also told me, “stay away, you’ll never know what you’ll catch.”
Just the other day I heard a soldier falling off some Indonesian junk that’s going round.
Mommy’s alright, daddy’s alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don’t give yourself away.
Father says, “your mother’s right, she’s really up on things.”
“before we married, mommy served in the wacs in the Philippines.”
Now, I had heard the wacs recruited old maids for the war.
But mommy isn’t one of those, I’ve known her all these years.
Mommy’s alright, daddy’s alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don’t give yourself away.
Whatever happened to all this season’s losers of the year?
Every time I got to thinking, where’d they disappear?
When I woke up, mom and dad are rolling on the couch.
Rolling numbers, rock and rolling, got my kiss records out.
Mommy’s alright, daddy’s alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don’t give yourself away.

still working on it – #98

I’m just trying to get into the motion and thoughts. There’s just lines then more lines. I only work on it before I go to bed. It’s kind of a new born meaning to it. This is practice for now. I’ll do a little more but not much. I’m almost borderline fucking it up.

I’m recording it for another video. It takes longer when I have my phone cam directly in front of my face. The recording, being so close to my face, picks up my breathing and lip chewing. It sounds like an ape eating pudding with a fork.

 

 

new project – #86

It was a rare few days that I could sit at my drawing table and think clearly. I gave it everything I had because I knew it wouldn’t last long. This is an accumulation from old drawings combined into one. It made it much easier to look back at drawings I kind of liked and work from there. There’s no instructions how¬† to do things so I had to recreate everything from scratch. This took about 5 days to come up with and a lot of erasing.

The braid is the only big element I have left to add with ink. I’m really hoping I can do this without any mistakes. It might take a few days until I’m ready to attempt this. It would suck to get this far and think I could add something and completely fck it up, which I’m really good at.

I’m trying to do simple quick drawings. It’s too painful to sit for any length of time at my drawing table. This still took three sittings to complete. I like when I can clearly think up a design and it comes out that way. This came out better possibly because I was more relaxed from medication and paid more attention to the over/under flow. This was done on a fairly small piece of paper, 6″x4″ and used a Micron .01 marker. That’s pretty tiny for me to see.

This is done with a blue ink pen. I’ve seen other people draw with them and liked how it looked. One thing I didn’t expect was how difficult it was. I couldn’t do dots like I do with the markers and found out cheep ink pens are just that, cheep. They either just stopped working or decide on their own if it wants to finish a line in that spot. I ended up finishing with a Blue Bic Jell Pen. Crosshatch was the only way I could easily finish this.

I don’t particularly like this, but considering it was the first blue ink pen drawing I’ve done, it will pass. I do like crosshatching, though. It’s not as time consuming as dotwork.
