OH MY GOD A MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE TAIN?! THAT'S LIKE THE BEST SONG EVER (caution: have 18 minutes of your life free, well worth it. One of the most amazing music videos I've seen in awhile) http://pitchfork.tv/videos/the-decemberists-the-tain- ETERNAL SUFFERING VEGGIE MONSTER MOST BAD ASS SWEATSHIRT EVER (seriously, is it a pea coat, is it a hoodie? MYSTERY CLOTHING!) DON'T TOUCH YOURSELF THANK YOU CLASS
Been working with watercolors more and more. I picked up a watercolor block, 9" by 12", so I've been trying to make sure I am a little more comfortable before I start painting over the sketch. One of these days I am going to do a comic just about this character, Scott, because he's still my favorite thing to draw even though I've been doing all those Anti-Nova comics with Marshmallow Gremlin. I've got too many ideas and characters I need to put into action; I really should just kick myself in the ass constantly.
Anyways, as for other art and music happenings, Matt & Kim just recently came through town with Kid Static and Best Fwends. They played at the house out in Dekalb and it was a pretty damn amazing show all around. I saw Matt & Kim earlier this year (even had an entry earlier too on this blog about it) but they once again put on a great set with an ungodly amount of energy. For their encore they decided to play one extra song that segwayed into a dance mix Kim put together as both Matt and Kim proceeded to jump off the stage and make everyone dance their pants off.
Pants were most certainly danced off.
Kid Static opened before them, he has an interesting sound that reminds me of Dan the Automator (before he started sucking on that second handsome boys modeling school album :( ) mixed with Q-tip. Really fun live, twice as fun when the dance party started.
After Kid Static, Best Fwends played. They're hard to describe other than, "so awesome and hilarious live you pee your pants a little bit." It's really hard to explain then other than to observe them. So check this out as well.
So after that was all good and finished, it had been one of the better concerts I have been to this year. Even more suprising it was out in Dekalb instead of Chicago.
It's been one of those busy weeks that didn't need to be but thanks to student loans and having to reapply due to them messing up my social security number, IT WAS! Here's some art since last time: The doodles (2nd image down) has some doodles from friends on the page, the jaws dick, :3 faces and gestural face. Just wanted to clarify that DEAR BLOG READERS.
I'll be making another post later tonight since I got too much stuff to fit into one.
Odwwart (abbreviated for you hip internet kids and your fancy lingo) is a collection of artist and illustrators who are miserable beings who wish they could turn into slugs but due to limited telepathic abilities are forced to retain their human forms.
Each week one of us chooses a theme and then we find our best way to draw and sketch it out with our own unique styles and perspectives on life. Occasionally one of us will also post art or other projects we are working on to liven up the place.
Odwwart is also fun to say out loud when abbreviated. Go ahead, give it a try!
