crunchy clean up

awww you're too sweet.

I didn't want to make it sound so dramatic, not like i'm about to starve to death but thank you for your concern, merci.

I thought I'd clean up a little last night's illo, just to point to the fact that behind the compulsive scratching, there's a potential commercial value.
I'm only in it for the money you know ;)

IF3Y-45 - crunchy

nothing cures an abandon neurosis like a bar of crunchy chocolate with nuts and a couple of old lp's.

last wednesday I have been informed that I only had two weeks left before I could pack my things and leave the office to never come back. Not that there was anything wrong with my work, on the contrary, just the way things go. I have no idea about what I am going to do on january to pay the bills. I'd love to illustrate book covers. How can I achieve that ? work at the desk of the tattoo shop? yes please.

Very bad for my little self abandon neurosis.

Sometimes in the world as is you've
Got to shake the hand that feeds you
It's just like Adam says
It's not so hard to understand
It's just like always coming down on
Just like Jesus never came and
What did you expect to find
It's just like always here again it's...

(no no no) No time for heartache
(no no no) No time to run and hide
(no no no) No time for breaking down
(no no no) No time to cry

Everything will be alright
Everything will turn out fine
Some nights I still can't sleep
And the voices pass with time

IF3Y43 - music

I think I need a new tablet, or at least a new pen. the wacom has gone hard as steel.
can anyone advise a decent A5 or bigger wacom?

Music fills my live all day long. I'd rather go blind han deaf.
nowadays I can't get that ritournelle out of my head.

IF3Y 42 unbalanced

I'm looking for new projects, what can I do for you ?
i'm a perfectly well balanced healthy picture robot.

outside is grey and horrible and inside there's a mix lots of work to be done and time to wait. perfect moment for some anxious electro to prevent any human feeling.

IF3Y-40 - skinny

I wish my tongue was wandering around your iliach crest licking every each of your secret inter costal spaces getting lost in your arm pits and our bones ringing like a death knell .

but it's not and they're not and I'm not.

you were tired I was bored and I got another beer and I was fat.

IF3Y-39 - FAST


I make a living out of fast images. check here

You want to know the secret of fast? it's the wheels. seriously.

I love race cars and fast cars. I think cars are like guns, they can be of great mechanical quality and precision tools, they shouldn't be allowed on the street in the hands of any idiot. they should be roaring on race tracks. My personnal favorite are american. loud and a bit heavy.
today I spent another day walking up and down a race track, but the light was crap.

IF3Y-38-FROZEN (you are not a unique and beautifull snowflake)

I can relate. this is how I feel in the inside too.

moday morning, as soon as the bike hit the highway I knew I missed a couple of layers.
the heating system does not work in the studio, I could not fix it.
It's only about 10°C but you can see outside that seagulls and raven have it easier than parrots. winter is here now.
I need a project to keep me waiting till spring.

B29 flying superfortress. 3,970 were built.
147 000 tons of bombs dropped during WWII

Estimates of Casualties Hiroshima Nagasaki
Pre-raid population 255,000 195,000
Dead 66,000 39,000
Injured 69,000 25,000
Total Casualties 135,000 64,000

167 000 tons of bombs dropped in Korea

Estimating the number killed in Vietnam is extremely difficult. Official records are hard to find or nonexistent and many of those killed were literally blasted to pieces by bombing.

I am so totally uninspired.
I created that wool pattern and now I don't know what to do with it.
I am also conducting long time researches on carbon fiber patterns:

I am looking for a ILLUSTRATOR REPRESENTATIVE in the USA. any tip or contact you can give me?

here is the animated clip I did this summer for my friend cactus. It was done in extra short time and it is full of clumsiness but for a first experience, I am rather satisfied that I made it to the end of the song.

the ending is my personnal interpretation of "a woman can take you to another universe / sometimes she just leaves you there".

an infinite reflexion of a screen staring at a screen staring at a screen, or an infinite series of me watching me watching me watching me.
ok, hung over, had a busy week.
been lazy.

archive footage: the allied forces of earth welcoming their first alien visitor.

things to make a good sci-fi movie:
creature from space with strangely earthly characteristics
belligerant military leader to ruin intergalactic friendship
hope in the future despite fear in new technologies
sexy assistant that will turn into a monster in the end.

ever noticed how adding bits of horror movie titles can make daily live so much more exciting? going to the haunted supermarket of doom, the horrible illustration friday experiment of terror, the ghost wacom from evil madness....
maybe I've been watching too much vintage horror movies.

IF3Y-29 wrapped

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Cleopatra)
Eager to take advantage of Julius Caesar's anger with Ptolemy, Queen Cleopatra returned to the palace wrapped into a Persian carpet and had it presented to Caesar by her servants: when it was unrolled, Cleopatra tumbled out.[8] It is believed that Caesar was charmed by the gesture, and she became his mistress.

eh.. what else?!

I really love the idea that body can be enhanced by some external artist.
I stole all the tattoes for this picture from my friend JURG unless the bastard sues me. I can't draw a tattoo anyway.

the tango competition is still going on... you're supposed to find the name of a movie and the clues are... *tango* - *paris* - *butter* what more can I say except *marlon brando* ?! I know the prize money isn't much (the original drawing sent to your doorstep) but at least I though somebody would post the obvious result for personnal gratification...

still summertime here, tonight is enchiladas and vodka.

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...
