I'm thankful for drawing...

As I was waiting for dinner this afternoon I pulled out my sketchbook and found a nearby pen to do some free-form drawing. I've been listening to a bit of Blue Note jazz lately. I'm attracted to the improvisational nature of jazz and try to carry that forward in my work. This drawing was constructed by drawing a shape, then feeding the next one off of the previous. The pen led itself, improvising off the curves and junctures of the shape next to it. I've said it before, but drawing is very similar to composing music.

That being said, this thanksgiving I am definitely thankful for the spare moments that I can steal for some personal drawing time.

Improved weapons...

A quick trip through my sketch archives turned up this gem. It looks to be from when I was in 8th grade, and drawing guns was all the rage. Is it a universally accepted truth that by taping multiple things together, the end result is exponentially more effective than each piece on it's own? This contraption looks exceptionally dangerous to my 23 year old eyes. I selected this drawing because it's exactly what Andrew Jeffrey Wright is doing with his Improved Weapons series. Of course when I drew this back in 8th grade, I just thought it was badass, like some secret weapon from Duke Nukem. Now it's just absurd, but that's the beauty of it right? Oh absurdity, how I long for thee.
