This Weekend



The Council of Deep Sea Creatures and I went to our school's literature department's faculty reading and drew in our sketchbooks and ate cheese and crackers. We heard stories about: picking peanuts, breaking legs, deer hunters, french lessons, sad movies, love stories. Edgar Silex's super emotional reading was my favorite. When he read he got so quiet and breathy and he just ached with melancholy, and I wonder if you get the feeling from it if you don't hear it?

Real catchy screen print




A real catchy screenprint that's the B-side of a printed toy inspired by Shigeo Fukuda. Google searching him mostly turns up super cheesy illusionary sculptures, but his paper toys are my favorite, e.g.:

HI

I was playing with watercolors and reading fashion magazines. Also, there's a cute picture of me and Lane Milburn in there (now roommates).

I've been carrying around Joann Sfar's published sketchbook Missionaire with me, and it inspired me to pull out a (cheap) set of watercolors and draw with something different for a change. I really like that he so frequently anthropomorphizes people in his work, particularly in his daily sketches: not just characters in childrens' stories (which he does) but also himself, strangers, friends, all to varying degrees. There's this great page in the sketchbook, for instance, where he does a few drawings of two friends talking and he subtly changes them in each one so that they go from humans to cartoon bird-people. I haven't always liked this kind of thing but maybe my enthusiasm comes from my love of Christophe Blain's expressive charicatures. Sfar's doing something similar (e.g. He usually draws himself as a bear, but it's sometimes a tiny childish one and sometimes a big pouchy one, depending on the context. And sometimes he's a human).


More! frequent posts to come!
