Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Saturday, December 09, 2006


This is my picture for Illustration Friday the theme is mask. "Mask" was drawn on a scrap of multi-purpose copy paper with my Gel-Roller and then colored in Photoshop. This drawing is a copy of a picture I took of Gorky, yelling at me for taking a picture of her while she was wearing a beauty mask.

Why do they call it a beauty mask anyway? Shouldn't it be called a hideous mask that will make anyone look more beautiful when they take it off?

And don't ask to see the original picture. It won't happen, I value my genitals too much. I’m already in for a good thrashing when Gorky finally reads this post, so just be happy with me showing you my interpretation of a picture you will never see.

Or just be happy knowing I will suffer a beating for it.

Much like the beating I first suffered when I took the picture.

Do you ever suffer for your art? Do you want to leave me some love?


  • Hehehe... I guess it shows that what make u look pretty is not always pretty.

  • At first, I thought this was a picture of an 'anti-mask'. That is, it looked to me like the face was ripped off. Kinda like your orange being the 'anti-blue' post a few eons ago.
    As always, a fun illo -- even if you may die as a result of posting.

    PS Missed you for a couple of weeks.

  • Maybe if she chilled out a bit more, she wouldn't need to do the "mask" thing! I think she looks good with it on!

  • Is she using a mix of avocado and green mud or a mix of green wax, pepper and soya? Because you know, the first one is really better, especially when... What? Ok ok... I was just wondering...

    Suffering is good for the soul, only if you have a soul.

    I can't believe you remember my orange post!
    I love you!

    I think the mask doubles as dip.

    Great. You and Gorky and Jonpaul can have a big make out session and I'll take the pictures.

    holly: Thanks Love. I've been missing it too.
