A couple of thumbnails that dreamed.
As Milenko would say 'Good riddance ' to 2008. Hurrah for 2009.
So yes....lets Try that again thanks.
You never think of yourself as old- until confronted by certain ugly realities.
Somehow I just haven't bothered listening to music much in the last couplel of years or buying it. Then in an idle moment I put a Ramones CD on (even the fact that I use a CD player is sort of damning proof of age- but more proof that I'm sick of repaying for music I already own).
Then I realised-these songs are nearly 30 years old. Doesn't matter that they're the real deal and far superior to the whiny Emo payola punk apings we are subjected to these days
Fortunately my 1 yearold son and 3 year old started spontaneously dancing around to it.
So there...there is hope for a another generation, and hope for an old timer.
So where's the art tie in? It is after all the art stupid.
Well for a long time I've wanted to do a pin up series of images based on songs or inspired by them.-ie for example "Big exit" by PJ Harvey or "Goin out West" by Tom Waits are two I plan on. So maybe there'll be some of that soon. Its odd I've been drawing but not drawing lately. So the lost world thumbnails are part of that first couple of days of ugliness before my head gets in the right place again.
I also have reams of thumbnails on paper to go through and maybe translate into human.
