Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Head Space

This is a picture of a space head. It was drawn on the back of the August 1 page of an old Get Fuzzy desk calendar, then cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.

This is not at all what I intended to draw but as soon as I put the pen to paper something inside me took over and this is what came out.


For me drawing is like a wrestling match. I get an idea and then I struggle with my pen until I can force it to do almost what I want. It feels like I have to fight with my muse to get anything done. I usually end up sweaty and in need of a nap. However, this time I guess my muse didn't feel like fighting. So, she just took over and this is the result. The whole experience was very relaxing and the picture is an excellent representation of how I'm feeling right now.

Thanks muse! I didn't feel like fighting either but I do look forward to more wrestling matches in the future.

What kind of wrestling do you like? Do you want to leave some love?


  • I prefer not to wrestle with my muse but sometimes I can't help it...

  • Your space head looks a lot like you, graveyard handsome. As far as a game, maybe football instead, not much to grab onto for wrestling with space head.

  • merlinprincesse: My muse is a big ugly ogre that hides in my closet.

    hardwax: Graveyard handsome. What I great expression! HA! Thanks!

    benconservato: Sleep wrestling? Isn't that called sex?
