Krusty.  Thrift Shop Hell, 2014.

It’s like Krusty the Clown re-imagined as a gritty 1990s comic book mob boss.

I have no idea what’s going on, or why.

How did you know this?  Do you have one?  Does it look the same?  Is it also a creepy, realistically textured-skin disembodied head?  If not, what is it?  How did you recognise this as being one?

I am grateful, intrigued, and even more confused.

There was a weird little gift store in Portland’s hippie distract, back in the 90s, that had them. Every time I was in there, it was like a train wreck, if train wrecks involved little plastic heads with various bits of paper in their mouths. One time I heard the cashier suggest that they’d be great for holding business cards. My hand to god, business cards.

Also, I am dying giggling at “This raises more questions.”

I painted a galaxy.

With a little help from this nifty tutorial.

To answer the question that I know is in your head: Yes, the back matches as a pair of Gramicci butt vortex tie dye shorts

Gramicci CROTCH VORTEX tie dye shorts at Gentry via doubleu doubleu.

I feel like I am being hypnotized to stare at his dong.

An oddly apt juxtaposition on my dashboard. 

Dream fox from my sketchbook. My upcoming art show is going to be about dream animals and people in dreams. 

I picked up a crochet hook to see if I still remembered the basics of crocheting. Yup. I do. 

I drew an elk spirit creature thingy. And his friends.

From the sketchbook.

Just a little rough drawing from my sketchbook. I’m happiest with the writing, which is exactly what I wanted - loose and a little archaic. 

Anonymous asked: When you were a student, as an artist, do you ever had those periods in which you thought you were never gonna achieve anything in life and your future was the darkest thing you could think about? If so how did you ever overcame them so you could be the amazing artist you are now? I´m having a pretty bad series of events with my art in Graphic Design and hope just flies away **literally it grew wings and flew**

Yes.

Oh yes yes.
Art-angst is a familiar country to me- I know the lay of that dim and soggy land all too well.

I go through periodic dry spells- especially with my personal work, where I just seem to fall out of love with art-making and can’t think of anything I want to draw.
But I’ve learned over the last years that those moments are temporary; the feeling vanishes and inspiration comes again. 
Lack of inspiration and self-doubt are normal, but it’s important to know that they aren’t the final word on your career as an art-maker. 

When that happens, I do two things: One I call the Kiki Method (from Kiki’s Delivery Service). When Kiki loses her powers, her friend Ursula compares her experiences with painting and inspiration to Kiki’s magic:

I stop drawing. I take walks, look at the scenery, take naps, do nothing. Then after a while, all of a sudden I get the urge to draw again.”

There is more to life than art- than what you do- and it is important to remember that.

So take a break, let the pressure slip away- often art-block is the result of an overgrown feeling of responsibility, pressure and expectations of yourself: the fear of failure. You’re afraid you’ll make bad art, so you stop making any art at all.

But that’s the worst bit!
The only way through to making better art is by making the bad art first. All of it. You have to make every little bit of bad art that is in you before it gets better. 
Don’t be afraid- it’s okay to be not-amazing!

Which leads me to the second thing: give yourself permission to suck, and then push steadily ahead. 

Accept that every sketch you sketch won’t be the best thing ever- but make them anyways. Make them all, discipline yourself to sketch onward, fill pages with unviewable garbage. It will help, I promise- because you’ll be doing something, moving forward. And suddenly it won’t be about how you feel anymore, or whether you’re inspired. 
Sometimes it’s just about pressing on. 
Sometimes it’s about accepting as graciously as you can that you’re not the best- but that the only way to get better is to keep going- to keep not-being-the-best. I’m not the best either. You’re in good company :)
But don’t give up, whatever you do. Giving up is the only surefire way to make sure you fail. 

With all love: Hang in there- I know it sucks sometimes. Take a break, remember all the beautiful things and people you have in your life, then come back and move slowly, steadily forward. You got this.

*tears of joy*

stacysix answered: Could you please draw a mermaid and a cat checking each other out? Thanks and have a great day!

Playing with some brushes I just got and like let’s not talk about how many image files I have titled “mermaid.jpg.”

I love it! :D

My icy world. 

I like this little creature, although he or she looks wary and a little dubious.
