I don't have time to scan and post all my new drawings! I've done a few, though, as you can see. And I finished the laborious animal drawing that got me thinking about manatees and rock hyraxes all the time. I've tentatively titled the piece Not Properly Respecting Otherness.
Man. It's irritating to see a huge drawing ensmallened on the web. Here's a detail. There's a bigger image on my site.
I'm working on another large text piece right now- they're very slow, but they're satisfying when they're done. I spent all day today carefully lettering the words "It's Not That It's So Bad to be Declarative" and "Just Because I Was An Idiot Last Tuesday Does Not Mean I Won't Be A Genius Next Friday." The latter phrase was spoken by a rock hyrax with a long ratlike tail.
These pieces are all done on cream paper, but I'll be damned if I can get the color accurate on the web. These drawings don't reproduce fabulously well anyways because there's so much fine detail, but they have a weird nostalgic engraved quality that's fun to look at in person. I'm getting this effect by using carefully selected ballpoint pens in various specific states of disrepair that I use for particular kinds of lines, and I go insane if Thom borrows one I'm working with and just, you know, writes with it.
I'll post a bunch more new drawings soon. I've made a few nice insect visitation pieces that involve bugs with striking camoflaugue. In the meantime, check out the plaid wings on the bug in the top image.
