Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Friday, September 15, 2006


Well Loves, I was working on this crazy story about the two days I just spent on the road with Live Wire, but at the last minute I changed my mind. BWhahahahahahahahaha... ahem.

"Change", my picture for Illustration Friday, was drawn on a scrap of multi-purpose copy paper with my Gel-Roller and colored in Photoshop.

To be honest I've had writers block for a couple of weeks now and just don't feel up to telling a story about how important it is to always bring a change of pants on an overnight trip because you just never know when the pants you’re wearing might accidentally catch on fire while partying with Alan Singley and the Pants Machine in an over crowded RV. Besides, it wasn’t actually my pants that caught on fire. It was Drew’s pants that were set ablaze moments after he sat down in the spot I had just been sitting in.

There but for the grace of God/dess go I.

Damage from the fire.
The band signing Drew's scorched pants. From the left; Gus, Leb, Ben, Drew and Alan signing the pants.
Who needs fantasy when your life is this strange?

Anyhow, I know I'm weeks behind on replying to comments and I apologize. I hope to catch up with all that by this Monday.

In other news:

The short film that I was lucky enough to be a small part of and have been bragging about for the last month finally has a website. If you would like to see this incredible, amazing, short film made as part of the 48 Hour Film Project. CLICK HERE!

Now, I’m going to bed because I feel exhausted.

Have you ever felt rode hard and put away wet? Will you leave me some love?


  • a traditional Jewish curse goes "may you live in interesting times!" so i would wish you to live in boring times, but it sounds so mediocre.

    so, hope it gets calmer where you are.

  • Yeah, sometimes I feel as if I too need a brand new brain, or a different one--one that's a bit more laid back perhaps yet more ambitious on a personal level. Looks like you ahad fun and are truly living your life however. The illo is great by the way!

    By Blogger Jaimie, at 10:56  

  • I watched the film! outstanding! hilarious.. you deserved to win. are you the purple haired stoner?

    By Blogger Jaimie, at 14:30  

  • Ha! No...I've never seen Captain and Tennille. I'm not sure, but I think it was Emerson, Lake and Palmer.I remember my first concert ever, was Black Sabbath. The tickets cost $8. (my brother and I saw a lot of bands...the tickets were very cheap "back in the day". love

    By Blogger Janet, at 14:35  

  • I wasn't gonna comment, then I changed my mind.
    Maybe you should have a contest and see who can guess where you are in the movie. I have my suspicions.
    BTW-Very entertaining movie. Amazing that it was totally produced in 48-hours.

    By Blogger IdiotHead, at 20:33  

  • Change of mind, thats funny. =)

    By Anonymous Sea Angel, at 10:50  

  • hmmm... funny movie-like-thing. who are you in it? is that one of the unanswerable questions in life? why am i asking so many questions?
