84 - routine

routine, illustration friday #84

what else am I doing? using something that once seemed beautifull and making a living out of it. getting naked in the general indifference, providing fun and entertainment at the cost of my sanity then going home at the end of the day.
I'm nothing more than a gogo dancer executing her routine for a blasé audience and non impressed boss.

I have the great great privilege of making a living out of my artistic know how, but most of the time and especially those last month, the routine is really eating my brain, killing all the fun, castrating all creativity, I really need new challenges.

so no more 20/20cm. the new rules are
- no layers
- no ctrl-z (aka undo)
- no sketching
- every line stays on the final image
- minimal changes of brushes.

what do you think ?

the song is called "nancy boy"
listening to this song I realised there is ONE place in the world I visited with every each of my girlfriend (except one night stands and almost but not really girlfriends) and this place is ... nancy.
tells a lot about how faithfull I can be does it?
be reassured, I'm not depressed, I'm just slowly getting drunk.

*insert robot voice* (playing name that movie again)
it is 2.55 am.

my life as a gearhead, part IX - having a hobby

I spent too much time on the UTMC forum, and too much time reading cafe racer magazine. this one is my dirtbag challenge project. cheap 1982 honda 400TB from ebay.
I'd do a cafe racer but we need some documentation about a scrambler for a graphic project so it will be a scrambler first, then maybe later I'll turn it into a clean cafe racer.
seems like a have an history of uglyness.

I'm just fascintated with buying an ugly bike with ugly large bars and ugly custom accessories, and cheaply turn it into something stylish and (what I believe to be) of good taste, like beauty is never that far from uglyness, like opposites co-exist and are adjoining, like you're such a monster it makes you beautifull or you are so beautifull it makes you horrible.
or maybe I just too much into motorcycles and drink too much.

81 poof !

After several cases of severe oral infections, princess stacie decided maybe using a straw to inflate toads would be a good idea.
and poof! goes the toad.

yes, I know, this page was originally created to force me to use the wacom and the wacom only, but it's my 81rst continuous post for Illustration Friday and this is my holydays, and I decided to go back to watercolors.

Adios Illo Friday

After almost a year without post, I hereby officially declare this blog DEAD. You can scroll though my work on my webpage at www.papazogla...
