this is the finished version of the hey diddle diddle picture i was working on. again–i need to get better at photographing my art. i experimented with accent color on this one. i also drew a better version of my lincoln tree doodle from my journal. here it is in black & white, but i am going to add color…maybe tonight?
i love this picture.
last drawing class we went to a colloquium where visiting artist roger ricco talked about “outsider artists” and the genius of their work. i feel like an outsider artist. even though i am in school now–i am mostly self-taught. ricco talked about mental illness in artists. i feel like i started doing art & writing to keep from going insane. so far so good.
after the colloquium, my professor talked to us about how 90% of art graduates fail to become professional artists because without the support system of the university, they don’t know how to succeed. since i have already spent most of my life in the cruel non-university world, i am used to creating art without a support system. so i think i am all set.
i am going to get started on the epic version of moses jones this weekend. i am thinking i would like to create a lot of panels of mojo that would stand own their own and be able to be hung on a wall for the casual viewer…. we’ll see where that goes. plus–i need to get the front & back cover done for my next zine as well as getting fidgit busy drawing a comic for it. i need to get to a print shop! i need more hours in a day!

wow ok I’m obsessing over that Hey Diddle Diddle picture now- the lincoln tree is great too! Your art seems like it’s getting better and better- I would totally buy the HDD one if I saw it in a store and hang it on my wall, especially the top right frame! It’s very dark children’s storyish 💜💜
thank you! i feel like i’m opening up my head more when i draw these days–so more freaky shit comes out 🙂 which is good for my art…the rest of my life, hmmm?
well I love it! keep it coming!
