So.... I broke out the markers and made some silly drawings.
I call this one [above], "Applying to Graduate School." Hehe. I kind of really wanted to draw something with a pimple.
Then I thought how much I liked to draw noses, I thought of making a nose a thorn on a flower. I'm pretty impressed with my leaves, as I wasn't looking at anything when I drew them, so I am glad they actually look like leaves. I'm thinking of doing more drawings like this, with weird cartoon faces appearing in places on plants. Or maybe not just faces.... hmm...
Then, after a failed drawing, I went back to magazine ads, and drew this. I don't know why my people always look like they are starving. It could be because I emphasize lips and cheekbones. But I like cheekbones. I guess it's kind of how Gary Larson's people always look obese. It's just how it happens. I wonder what that says about me.
A big part of me wants to make art that I can sell, or put in a show. But another part of me just wants to watch CSI.
