this is a drawing of a photograph of a sculpture. no idea who made the sculpture or who took the photograph i drew from. This was something a teacher of mine in college had the class draw.
this is a sculpture i did in high school. It was intended to be a self portrait. It started to look more like i wished i looked like, rather than i really did. It was subtle things, the shape and size of my lips, the structure of my cheek bones. I was making it into a physical representation of my perception of myself, rather than a realistic bust. Not sure why anymore, but this made me angry. I guess it was because i was not happy that the way i look is nothing like my personality, nothing like who i am. You would have to get to know me for a pretty long time to realize that. ANYWAY…I got mad at the sculpture and began angrily carving at the cheek, which felt too realistic, and was satisfying in a sick sort of way. But the angry carving quickly turned into an unstoppable spasm of creativity…or at least that is what it felt like in the moment. I could not stop creating this destroyed face. So this is my Martyr. The top of the skull was a separate piece…unfortunately a friend of mine stepped on it shortly after i finished the bust. So the back of the skull is open and hallow. no, there arent really any brains in there
this is a 10x10 zoom up of a section of my pine cone thing i drew. I also added 2 mediums, so together, i have pencil, colored pencil, and…I think i used marker…not entirely sure. I did a 10x10 zoom up of this 10x10 zoom up and also added another 2 mediums…at some point i used marker, at some point i used sharpie pens…i used some stuff to make some pictures. zhe end!
This drawing doesn’t photograph well. It is only…I think it is about 6inches by 6inches. Not entirely sure and the actual drawing is not near me, nor do i have a ruler handy. Though, they say size doesn’t matter…no comment. Anyway it is small and entirely done with pencil so when you try to get a close up, it either gets blurry or there is a shine from the flash or just the light in the room. BUT, it is a drawing of a pine cone. well its not really a pine cone, but it is some sort of seed pod for some tree that my mom let me draw.
This is an abstract drawing i did for a class in college. The more i look at it, the more i see all kinds of faces that remind me of nightmares. Not my intention, but enjoyable in a way. Interesting to see what Is in my art that i dont put there on purpose.
SOOOooo….I am not actually a photographer, that would be my sister, or my mom…or my dad…really anyone else in my family other than me. However, there are a few things that i see every now and again, I need to capture it and painting or drawing wont do it justice sometimes. Soooo, here is a lovely sunset that happened a long time ago, just found the folder on my computer that had all the pictures from this sunset, this is one that i like.
