Proving once and for all that I have no eye for fashion.

I wasn’t sure if I liked the color or just the linework better…so I posted both.
Which do you prefer?
As always, click to enlarge, yo.

“This is everything.”

“You’re beautiful and alive, and that’s enough.”

“Paradoxically, we fail to disclose ourselves to other people because we want so much to be loved. Because we feel that way we present ourselves as someone we think can be loved and accepted, and we conceal whatever would mar that image.”
“Another reason we hide is to protect ourselves from change. . . Still another reason we don’t disclose ourselves is that we were never taught how. . . Personal ambitions and economic pressures also give us powerful reasons for concealing what we really are. . . All of us hide behind the iron curtain of our public selves. . . Men hide what prevents them from seeming strong and masculine. . .”
“Disclosure is so important (because) without it we really cannot know ourselves. Or to put it another way, we learn to deceive ourselves while we are trying to deceive others. For example, if I never express my sorrow, my love, my joy, I’ll smother those feelings in myself until I almost forget they were once part of me.”
-Sidney Jourard, The Transparent Self, 1971.

The past few days have been a hectic mess of work–deadlines for three big bus wraps, plus lots of little bits of production work, which is my responsibility. Because of this, I’ve gotten to know my coworkers a lot better, and they, in turn, me.
This led me to thinking, which led to this doodle.

this also applies outside the workplace

Fortunately, my coworkers, now knowing at least two of these things, like me even better.
But it doesn’t always go that way.
A lot of times, people get scared. They run away.

WOW THIS POST IS KINDA LAME

“Oh, and to top it all of, my iPod totally died.”

I know I promised a real post with recent art, but I have a few good excuses, including (but never limited!) to my car blowing, my house’s A/C being broken (with humidity that makes papers curl, it’s so hot and wet!), starting my new job today, and trying to get financial aid matters all sorted out before classes start again in a short week and a half. Needless to say, I haven’t had time to even pick up a pencil, let alone draw or paint anything. Which sucks, but that’s life? Evidently?

My ex-roommate, in our shower. I had just installed the newest version of Photoshop and was playing around.

I think the title says it all. I dashed these out one night while we were hanging out; they hung in my friend Andy’s hallway for a while, and now they’ve moved with him to New York. I think this is officially the only art of mine that physically resides in the Big Apple. The sad part is, I think these drawing probably have a more exciting life than I do.

A quick, ten-minute marker sketch of a girl in one of the art classes I took. It actually looks just like her, which I was surprised by.

“Giblets!”

I got a new car today, so I spent most of today driving it around aimlessly, enjoying the feeling of freedom and running a few errands that were long-overdue. And I have a job interview tomorrow! Between those two big things happening in my life, there wasn’t much time for new art, so I bring to you a few random giblets from the past.

More “real” art this weekend, if all goes as planned…I hope.

Also, in other exciting news, I’ll be attending the Tri-City Art Battle this weekend. Unfortunately, I won’t be participating, but I’m looking forward to event nevertheless. You can find out more about the night’s events here and here. If you’re in the area, I hope to see you there!
