New drawings, 3/18/07

March 18, 2007 at 6:24 pm (art, culture, drawing, interesting, life, personal)

Here are a few new ones. I wanted to rework some old ideas new ways, and here’s what I came up with:


(Oooh, she’s been Kusama-ed!!)



Also, someone was asking me recently about the scale of these drawings. Almost everything on the blog is 5 x 7 inches or smaller, simply because it’s really the only scale that looks halfway decent in this format. I have other work in other sizes, but as far as blogging goes… well, it doesn’t really make sense to put the bigger stuff right now.

So basically, that means that the size you’re seeing on your computer screen is probably just about the size of the real drawing. I really would like these to all be installed like a cluster, such as:


…ok, that’s a silly installation I know, but it should give you a sense of what I mean. And I threw in the ruler there on the bottom to be extra-helpful in terms of visualizing the sizes of the drawings, but I’m not so sure it really does anything in that regard. When I get more done, I’ll actually install them in our bedroom (which has one of the only good, clean, smooth, pock-mark-free walls in our apartment) and take a shot.

    i like these new creatures more so than the more skeletal ones with no hair you’ve been posting. not to generalize your work or anything. the top one has a great composition and i like it even without the text. dress + polkadots = sweet? who woulda known? maybe you did. the window ads a lot too. the beach one is charming and tranquil, which makes me think, ‘if only i could read the text, i would realize the figure is speaking of the impending doom of an apocalypse, and enjoying a nice day at the beach.’ keep it up, yo.

    aw, thanks kurt. i think i agree with you… i had the sense when i finished these, like: “ok, *now* i’m getting somewhere.”
    so, thanks man.
