    @ MrSmite - I could just sit and listen to Mr Wolf's music all day long....or at least until he got hungry. Great work sir. I would really like to see Monday take a good shit kickin'. I'm sorry to say Monday bent me over and went Pulp Fiction on my ass and yes, the Gimp was there too.

    we don't have a photography thread anymore, do we? feel free to delete this if we do and i'm just too lazy to find it.
    these are quick crops, no colour editing, teasers, if you will. i took 500 photographs of abandoned places today and will begin the sorting process tomorrow.

    @howyadoin: Thank you, kindly.

    @photomagex: Sorry to hear about your Monday, man. I bought mine a ticket to Shit Creek and tied the fucker to the tracks. But you can be positive the bastard's gonna be back next week for another go.

    @allana: I for one, welcome our photographic overlords. ( I really dig the second image)

    Although I can't imagine everyone here hasn't seen these on other threads (and become sick of seeing them):

    I like all the work you posted, but that last one is gorgeous! Beautiful use of colour.

    @ Paul Sizer... One day, Sizer, One day, I will put your work and my work side by side and I will say.. "hm.. well.. I suppose I could be that good eventually".

    ONE DAY.

    @Gav: Thanks for the good words, mate! Appreciated!

    @Pandja: Oh please. Any schmuck can do art, I should be a shining example of that. I'm just a schmuck who takes the time to keep at it. And practice rather than watching TV, rather than playing video games, rather than falling down the street in a drunken stupor... Good old fashioned stick-to-it attitude. See? Nothing to it. Thanks for the nice thoughts, now quit complaining and get your ass back to the drawing board! : )

    @ photomagex...I skin cosplayers at conventions when they are too tipsy on bad absinthe.

    @MrSmite - Love your fairy tale peoples. For some reason they made me think of the show "Into the Woods". Especially Little Red.

    Well, I don't have anything interesting to show right no, and if I had, it would pale compared to the things posted by now, but since this is the artist's thread, I think it's the right place to ask: What do you people do when you have artist's block?
    I KNOW it sounds stupid, but... Well, sometimes I don't know how to relax myself, or how to focus properly.
    Please, be kind!

    More new stuff!
    I got inspired by Wood's covers.

    @John Stargazer - when my art brain freezes, I lubricate it with unfamiliar input. Read books, listen to music, and see films outside my usual tastes ( ask for recommendations from friends ). Visit parts of the country I've never seen before. Sometimes it's as simple as taking a break from art and blowing off some steam on a big night out with friends, then sleeping late in the morning.

    Huh. Now that you mention it, I've been doing this for years.

    @norther - nice design! That's a really solid cover! I always have trouble placing graphic elements on a page, I don't have an eye for it, but you definitely do.

    I've been working with ink, watercolors and gouache lately, after having done mostly ink work in a class I took last year:


    This next one is an attempt to do something in the style of James Jean's sketchbooks. It isn't finished, but it's coming along:


    This is just an ink/watercolor sketch that came together nicely:


    And finally, I went to a fashion show last weekend and, though I took a few pictures:


    Most of the time there I tried just sketching on one small page in a moleskine notebook, just people in the club, objects, architecture, impressions of motion, anything that caught my eye while I sat there. I ended up with this:


    Trying to take notebooks to sketch in everywhere. I'd like to get more pieces that aren't life drawings or doodles, I may try to make Sunday a big drawing day or something, to get at least one day a week with a solid several hour drawing session in.
