Some sketches from yesterday and the animation I have been working on for about a week. It took 143 sketches, I didn't go for the full 900 but I was using my new graphics pad! To see the animation you can find it on youtube under my tag Ttiaat or just go to this site here.
To take a break from drawing I did a painting yesterday. Interesting how all the drawing I have been doing has influenced my painting style. I also got my graphics tablet in the post today paid for by my lovely colleagues! I spent today familiarising myself with the pen and software. I won't share what I did as it was slightly retina scorching.
This is a from-memory reference to Infinite Jest. Maybe this is what I will do to entertain myself in between working really hard on stuff I can't do too easily. I would like to illustrate the Hell's Angels dudes and their tattoos now that would be cool.
These are my notes from the launch pad, my current road map. This is what I am trying to synthesise into my practice with the faith that it will improve. Through hard work and observing (if not staying within) boundaries designed to channel the sometimes crazy artistic drive that I have within, I should learn and I will. I am gaining a new perspective. I remember what art meant to me back when I was purely absorbing it, making it because I had to, to learn, to escape or just to be with my favourite characters, now it is evolving for me into something else; And that is not only what I wanted, but what my art needed.
