Hi! Who’re these guys?
The first picture is probably one of my favourite scenery that I saw this year (and I saw a many scenery that took my breath away). The idea of people watching a man drawing a masterpiece in a museum filled with masterpieces was just amazing to me. I should go go museums more often!
The second picture is mine, of the same statue, from a different angle. It is less beautiful as the man’s version. The way the light hit the contours of the copper (?) was too captivating not to draw.
Hardly anyone Not everyone is a fan of musical theatre, I get it, but this song really helped me work last night. It’s about an artist’s struggle (among other things) to keep working in the midst of criticism and expectation which culminates into a mental block.
This is Move On from the musical Sunday In the Park with George by Stephen Sondheim. The story is based on an imagined life of Georges Seurat, famous for his work with pointillism.
An exchange between George and Dot:
"I’ve nothing to say"
"You have many things"
"Well, nothing that’s not been said"
"Said by you"
And then later said by Dot:
"Stop worrying that your vision is new. Let others make that decision—they usually do. You keep moving on."
Farewell creative block, I’ll be seeing you another time. But until then… I’ll keep moving oooooooooooon!
Stop! Mjolnir time
Finally, something from the ol’ blog eh? I apologise for my idleness as of late, I’m trying to be better at it. Honest!
So I decided to re-do the Mjolnir time image just so I can put more of my spin on it. Boy, was this project a journey… Hope you guys like it. If you’re interested in prints of other merchandise, they are now available at my Society6 store.
Happy Eid for those who celebrated the holy month. Everyone take care!
What I Did for Love
Flash and Photoshop.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I thought today might be a good day to celebrate love: love for your significant other, love for your family, love for the people around you, love for your craft, love for nature, love for your life, love for the one place in the world that makes you feel like you’re home.
At first I wanted to draw this in support of marriage equality (woot Pennsylvania!) and in solidarity for the LGBTQ community, but come to think of it, society still holds prejudice against all kinds of ridiculous things like inter-racial and inter-faith relationships which I think should also end. So here’s to all the different kinds of love!
The lyrics are taken from the song What I Did for Love from the musical A Chorus Line, written by the forever loved Marvin Hamlisch.
