Burn It

, , , , ,


So, for these so called Christmas presents this year, I am attempting to wood burn. Now, I have never done this before, I might burn the place down, who knows? I do know that it shall at least be a valiant effort that might resort in the verdict of “stick with the painting”.

You shall be updated in the near future with some results.

It’s very strange that a huge junk food company just goes FFT. However, I am not too sad about Twinkies. Am I the only person in the world who thinks that Twinkies aren’t that special? I mean they’re decent but not craze worthy and they don’t have a crazy awesome flavor, it must just be the zombie apocalypse. People are trying to prepare by getting used to the food.

Oh, the lone opinion of the world.

However! Even though I generally don’t buy Hostess products, I feel the urge to go buy some to be all iconic and whatnot. How saddening.

Let’s just say a certain someone just got a new laptop and that certain someone is overjoyed at such a fact. It’s a bit strange to go back to Windows from having an iMac desktop, but since Mac Shultz decided that he didn’t want to turn on, I made my decision to get this guy. He needs a name. It’s a lovely Toshiba Satellite, I’m rather pleased that Walmart ran out of their Toshiba computer, thus I was able to get this one. Thank you Staples, which I had no idea was a mini Office Depot.

For someone who might have found this looking for a review, I love it. ‘Nuff said.

Alas! It Was Completed Forever Ago.

I don’t think it looks too terribly off, at least some people could tell who it was. It just makes me proud that it’s going to be there for all the lame people to gaze upon and think it’s some girl. I sort of ran out of time and just decided that it was good enough. Rather difficult to paint on a huge scale, especially when you have to fill in all those fricken holes.

For those of you who couldn’t tell, it’s beside M’s painting of The Suburbs album cover.

Free-Sprited Watercolor

Now, don’t ask me why I attempted a watercolor painting of a face, when I can barely spew out a drawing of one, but I did. Thom Yorke just seemed applicable. I sort of dig the outcome, though it’s definitely an abstraction of him. I did originally start out with the intent of doing a close representation of him, I soon found out that it wasn’t happening; so I like to say that I intended for an abstraction from the beginning. I mean,  can’t we all agree with that? I think so.

The Bane Cometh

Ah, so everyone knows about the new Batman movie. If not then just leave.

Bane, the antagonist and mortal enemy of Batman was brilliant. Partially due to his immense size and partially due to Tom Hardy. I mean look at the guy:

By the way, am I the only one who thinks he looks like Lupin from Harry Potter? Maybe. Maybe not.

Bane, I would say was my favorite villain but hey, The Joker? Heath killed that. Along with Jack Nicholson. Both of whom I love insanely. Bane just looks plain awesome.

He even has some deep faces even with a mask on. I mean that’s talent.

The reason I even bring this up is the fact that every single time Bane opened his mou….every time Bane..uh..talked…all I could hear was the Snowman from Courage the Cowardly Dog. I mean come on, the way he talks. Mainly the inflections of his voice.

Anyone else catch this?

Watch it again.

Thus concludes my commentary for the movie.

Look it up, you’ll see what I mean. Ah!

Ah! First set of photos of this project thing. I’ve determined I’m going to complete the background first. Personal preference that way. Then, I shall sketch in pencil to get the dimensions decent. That’s my worst part, past that, I think I’m good. M says details are difficult, I’m going to kill it though. Oh yeah.

Image

First thing to notice, it’s not a completely flat surface, so if it didn’t take me long enough to paint people, this will definitely hinder the process…

Image

Being a perfectionist won’t help me here either.

All the lonely spaces.

Populating the Ceiling

I am now embarking on a quest to paint a ceiling tile of my school. I plan on doing this shot of Kurt Cobain, I think I’m excluding Eugine Kelly.

Image

Ah, that’s got to be one of my favorite shots of Kurt. Simply captivating.

Of course it’s a square tile, so it’ll be a face shot. The thing is, drawing Kurt at this scale…hmm…challenge accepted. These next few photos will be interesting, I believe.

It Has Been Done

Ah, I have finally found a woman to creepily adore from an “I have no idea who you are” distance. Genevieve Schatz, lead singer of Company of Thieves, is so beautiful. It’s just amazing! M and I saw her band open for Grouplove at the Cat’s Cradle and I’m telling you, as soon as she started dancing I was hooked. She even has a gorgeous voice! It’s strange due to my strange hatred of women, but she exceeds all of them and I actually adore her!

Oh, and I got a picture with her. Along with an autograph. I got to touch her back. Let’s just say I was a giddy camper.
