It's my 100th post! [fanfare! streamers! people yelling happy things!] I wish I could say I had something special in store for this post but, unfortunately, I don't.
I didn't post a church bulletin yesterday because my drawing skills were so atrocious I couldn't even bring myself to let my mom see it. I donno. I think I'm a little artistically...stopped up [do you see what I did there? I was going to say constipated.]. I'm just burnt out on drawing, specifically, drawing people. It'll only last a couple days at most, but we have models in class tonight. It's going to be a bloodbath of smudged charcoal and failed sketches.
Since I'm in a rut, here's some amazing work from some actual artists, not just lame-oes like me:
First, Dave Rau and Josh Bertrand created a digital collage, "The Horseman Meets the Oarsman" and are releasing the files they used for other artists to create their own collages.
So cool! I started mine yesterday. It's still in the "I suck" stage.
Secondly, Larry Roibal takes prominent figures and sketches them with a ballpoint pen on newspaper! Kind of reminds me of the church bulletin...
(I would post some of his work but I'm sure it's horribly illegal. Actually. The "Horseman" thing is probably illegal too but...meh.)
Hhhh...If you ever want to kill your self esteem, shop for summer clothes after a long winter hibernation. I have a blogger butt. Ugh. I had a blogger butt even before I was a blogger! I guess it's time to suck it up and get a gym membership.
