Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Sunday, February 08, 2009


This is my picture for Illustration Friday the theme is time. "Time" was sketched on to the back of the February 2 page of my "Get Fuzzy" desk calendar, copied onto a piece of watercolor paper using a Faber-Castle fine tip artist pen, colored with watercolors, and then given a final inking in with a Faber-Castle, fine tip, artist pen once again.

I am always obsessed with the amount of time I don't have. That makes it hard to focus on what I'm doing with the time I have right this moment.

Of course, worrying about time at all is a waste of time. Time is a man made concept that moves from the past, to the future, but always in the now.

Time for me to go.

Did you ever try to save time? Did you ever try to leave me some love?


  • Sometimes I try save time in order to build up time credits so I can then waste time. Does that make sense?

  • Cool piece. I do try to save time, but lately I'm practicing slowing down and savor the moment...not easy.

  • I think time is fascinating. Does it really exist, or is it some construct we've invented to organize the way we think of our world?

    I could go insane thinking on that.

    A great piece. I'm glad to see you. I have missed you so very much.

  • detlef: I waste time without saving any and some times, like today, I end up with free time.

    isay: Thanks! :-)

    get zapped: Thanks.
    Yeah, savoring the moment is hard.

    catnapping: Time is an odd thing and now my brain hurts.
    I love clocks.

  • 1. Yes, I try to save time. It almost always ends up costing me more time.
    2. Yes, I tried to leave you some love. On the packing illustration.
    3. Here is some love for this one: xo
    4. If you were facing upside down on the clock, wouldn't you be headed back in time? If we all stood on our heads, could we go into the past? Do you believe in time travel?
    5. Thanks for your time.
