A painting I did using gouache, Prismacolor pens, and micron pens. The gouache had a heavy amount of water, which gave it a watercolor look to it.  This was inspired by one of my favorite artists, Gala Bent and math rock music such as Giraffes? Giraffes!, Redneck Manifesto, Toe, and other bands  whose names are too unnecessarily long for my short attention span to remember off the top of my head,

I did a lot of research on Astronomy and got involved in the works of Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking during the winter. The result of the studying were these sketches, which are too abstract to be considered scientific illustrations.filename-1 (8)

This started as my first attempt of doing a nude portrait (which is a cop out because it’s from the belly button up) but it

ended taking on a more colorful piece that coincides more with what I use to draw in high school, colors and small and

not so subtle mutations.

I’m enjoying the fact that I have a scanner. I’m also sad that I didn’t realize they were was a scanner in my house months ago when I began this blog, but ey c’est la vie.

One of the photos is one I’ve already posted, but just scanned and I figure it won’t hurt reposting artwork if it’s done in a better quality. The other two come from my personal sketchbook, which I hardly take out artwork from. Although with my Ill Youth collection I’m doing over the summer, I may use my sketchbook to show some of the artwork.

The homeless man drawing’s sign is a reference to a Radiohead song “Fitter Happier” which you should listen to if you haven’t before. This will be some of the last artwork I’ll do that  lacks direction. I’ve been spending the past year drawing and trying to figure what my personal style and I’m getting around to focusing on what I like doing, which is what Ill Youth will be about. So I leave you with my last few eclectic works.
