After listening to St. Vincent’s new album, I had been wanting to do a piece about her. I had a day off of work and decided to finally move past the “ugly” stage it had been sitting in. I’ve been drawn to the brand of gentle, bright madness she expresses with her sound, and on top of the geometric/pastel imagery in her new album, it makes for a wide aesthetic wealth to glean from. Had a lot of fun with the noise filter on this one.
I’m so happy to finally be able to announce this since I’ve been sitting on it for a while. It’s been especially hard since Chris Visions has been getting a lot of attention recently for his upcoming series Dead Letterswith Chris Sebela from Boom! Studios. And all of that attention is much deserved because he’s an amazing, versatile artist. If you haven’t heard of him yet, don’t…
Chris Visions is soooo cooooool \ ( * A * ) /

Cathryn Virginia’s soft brights strike the fundamental, the elemental squarely, her works revealing the inner self directly, her subjects often seeming super-human, more in tune with nature, the universe, their essential selves than most of us.
my friend iheartapostates just told me about this blog feature, whaaaattttt.
January 2014 sketchdump, to prove I’m not dead.. I just graduated in December from VCU and I’ve been in this huge, stank funk, which has been a mixture of fear of adulthood, crippling anxiety, and feelings of incompetency. Pair this with the blues that come from a hugely influential part of my life being over combined with the inevitable low I always feel after Christmas has passed. After the semester was over I spent a few weeks feeling like a dried up well with nothing left to offer. It’s been up and down for a little while, but I’ve managed to keep drawing for the past few days, and the feeling of accomplishment is a very good one, even if it’s small. Baby steps towards the bigger goals, I suppose.
Was reminded recently by a friend that having something as simple as a glass of clear water, as well as the strength to lift it to your mouth to drink, is enough to be incredibly thankful for. So here’s to the new year, where things are never as bad as they seem.
We visited the VCU Comics collection today and holy cow, that place is a treasure trove. I didn’t really have an idea about how expansive it was until the archivist, Cindy Jackson, kept bringing things out.
It’s one of the largest comics collections in the world, and they have (literally) tons of material on hand. It’s free for the public to access and view, and they’re really cool about pulling images/scanning to your heart’s intent, as well as assisting in any research.
Awesome to meet John Lee and Derrick Dent alongside Sishir Bommakanti and my excellent & sexual (sexcellent? excual?) manpiece Chris Visions for an impromptu sketch & chat today. We sketched. We chatted. Funs were had by all.
