Everybody likes pictures.
Sorry for the lack of update lately, I’ve been rather sick lately with severe chest congestion. While this is certainly no cry for pity, it is the sort of sickness that saps your energy just enough to not really want to do much, and destroys your ability to breathe enough to prevent any work being done on recording something like a podcast you really want to get started already. Maybe I should just turn this into a food blog about cough drops and various soups, or something. (I won’t be doing that.)
So I spent the better part of today going through the majority of art I have that’s somehow survived the years, moves across the country, fits of emotional disturbance, etc. And I’ve found a lot of interesting things — ideas I should have done years ago, amazing illustrations that deserve attention or new life, projects that were started, conceptualized, or just never saw the light of day, and some general ass hattery that was simply fun to revisit. I’ll be posting things around the place (Instagram, Facebook, and probably some other stuff) and reworking these old ideas into their own thing or an existing platform I’m working on or planning to shortly. Also, apparently over the past 20 years, the one thing I’ve drawn more than anything is cartoon bees. I don’t have any explanation on what that’s about.
It’s actually kind of cool, in a way, to revisit all this. While I’m not one to spend time revisiting old memories– that’s kind of stupid –I am glad to have a wealth of ideas to draw off of again, and a framework to institute new things building off those ideas. It’s a great foundation to a creative process, for now, at least.
