It’s been forever since i updated this thing, partially because i have been sick for two months with glandular fever so i haven’t really done anything for ages except for moan and watch TV! It’s a shit illness by the way…
Anyways it’s always super intimidating getting back to drawing after taking even a couple of days off, i find at least, so i have been fishing around trying to drag my motivation out from whichever gutter it has been hiding out in of late.
I’m not really an art lover and i definitely don’t follow art or illustration or whatevs but i do remember seeing drawings and thinking that it’s great that you can draw whatever you want and just a load of junk and that it’s all just for fun really and it’s not in any way serious so i thought i7d share some of these things with you.
Like Punk lPs, particularly this Dead Kennedys Bedtime for Democracy double spread by Winston Smith, and these funny Chemical People covers by Dick Cheese Comics.
Also i like some comics but mostly it’s MTV stuff. But Ren and Stimpy is really important for me because it’s the first cartoon to use this really gross close up static shots, like when it zooms in on a rotten tooth or a spot or some gross man’s hairy back, that kind of stuff, so i like that you can be really detailed just for the sake of making stuff a bit more disgusting.
The comic with al the faces on it is actually a back cover advert drawn by Tom Veitch who is sick, associated with Starwars or Star Wars but before that he was an underground comix heavy hitter.
Anyways i7m getting back on with stuff now finally so i’l put some on in about 5 minutes once i have fabricated a cup of tea in me old kitchen with the kettle and all.
