Here’s some progress photos from the painting I’m currently working on, I’ll post updates as it moves along I suppose. Painting, huh, what can be said?
Nothing yet, best get back to painting.

I always want to post about music on here but afterword feel like I made a mistake for posting it. That being said…
I was mighty surprised to hear Omid being interviewed on kpfk yesterday, he was playing tracks from Modern Persian Speech, great stuff. Oh and that new Open Mike Eagle track is wonderful.
Today I listened to William Onyeabor, Serengeti, Thee Midniters, and Parno Graszt.
There, I did it, gawd damn me.

Working on the pencil layout of a mini-comic zine while I wait for paint to dry on another project.
This is going to be a kind of rematch/sequel to Rikki Tikki Tavi, but much less violently brutal than Kipling’s original. In this one the mongoose and the cobra are involved in a….never mind. Be done with this before too long, can’t say how long the painting will take though…

Between the hot-boxed van, hash-cloud and gas-can, she looked up at me and asked “who was that masked man?”

Just a couple sticky note drawings I managed to sneak in at work today.
Lots of painting to do tonight, I’ll show you later.

Just trying out this drawing program, it lets you add text…kinda cool…

Thought I’d go ahead and take a shot at one of the biggest purveyors of misinformation out there while I was at it.

Pen ink color pencil cardboard
Insomnia wins, no technique can defeat it.
Why do I put artwork on here? Why did I ever start?
Been up all night, morning almost here…

Here’s a zoomed in detail photo of my painting progress, the one I wanted to have done a week ago. I messed up the sky and had to repaint it 6 times before getting what I wanted. I’ll post the finished painting when it’s done…
Now I’m off to solve the mystery of the disappearing “likes” while I simultaneously use this comically oversized push-pin to hold the sun in place.
