I just realized I can’t get a haircut, so I guess I’ll end up looking like a caveman or in this case an intergalactic man-ape.

Maybe I can cut it myself? 🤔

A word from Chuck Close

Category : General Jan 30th, 2020

The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work.

All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive.

You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.

Drawing over a screenshot

I took several screenshots of this scene in “The Fellowship of the Ring” and made this composite image on Photoshop,…

Back to the drawing board

Category : Artwork Jan 17th, 2020

I used to draw using color pencils when I was young and some of my old artwork resurfaced a few weeks ago. It made me wonder if I still have the skill to apply shape and color to a hand drawn project. So I chose the easiest thing to test my skills and made this:

3.6 Not great, not terrible. I forgot how relaxing it is to draw, maybe I should make more projects like these.

Nintendo Switch Lite

Category : General Jul 31st, 2019

The colors Nintendo chose for their new line of products are a terrible choice. Being a long time fan of their products couldn’t help but notice how insipid the new choices look.

Why Nintendo...why?

So I added the colors that are NOT available for sale and I honestly think my options below are much better.

Old sketches

These are just some sketches I did last month while waiting at the doctor’s office, nothing special but it is quite relaxing.

Gameboy Tetris has no equal

Category : Concepts May 12th, 2018

The Nintendo Gameboy TETRIS made by Bullet Proof Software in 1989 is simply the best. One can only hope that classics such as this never die and make a comeback on the Switch with an emulator.
