what’s old is new again

confusion perfume was discontinued in 2002 due to relationship happiness, but at one point i drew a new one. it would have to have been after 2008 because i did not join the facebook community before 2009. i found it as i was digging for paper for misha to draw on. it just needed to be inked.

i also found this one which would have been done before 2008? maybe? but of a series that came after confusion perfume.

idkwid-humane

i call this series i don’t know what i’m doing. it is my series about being a mom. two of this series were actually published in hip mama zine back in 2007/2008.

other than inking these and doodling in my journal, i haven’t gotten anything new done. i am in the middle of packing & leaving dusty in the dust. hopefully, once i am settled, i will do more moses jones as well as more stark raving whimsy.

and i will take over the world.

probably in that order.

van gogh’s tank girl

life gets in the way

i’m still letting homework & kids keep me from getting my comic done. i have the next page written, but not yet drawn. however, just now, while nursing my baby back to sleep (one of the times i do my best thinking about zombies, etc) i figured out the layout for the next page. maybe tomorrow page 3 will be done.
meanwhile, here is a pastel i did a year ago in my drawing II class. this is tank girl done in the style of van gogh. tank girl & van gogh are both inspirations for me. back in my early twenties i shaved most of my head & would be compared to tank girl (as well as sinead o’connor). i love tank girl. i am an anarchist at heart. i also love van gogh–though admittedly i did not pay that much attention to him until a dr. who episode with a van gogh plotline. van gogh has a sad story. he only sold one painting while he was alive. he committed suicide, but it took a day or so to die after he shot himself. i only know a bit about him and do not think he was so much talented as he was inspired & passionate. my favorite is his sunflowers & his starry night. he did a LOT of self-portraits. this one was a take-off of self-portrait with a with a bandaged ear & pipe. by the way, he did not cut off his ear to send to a lady–his ear was cut off in a drunken brawl with gauguin (fellow painter) & then sent to a lady. i think that is a much better story.
