Faeries and Flowers

Today I am posting another drawing that I did with brush pens. This one was kind of in response to some friends and family that were picking at me because so much of my subject matter is dark.

If you like dark things you know the words.

“Why don’t you draw anything pretty? Like flowers.”

And eventually one gets tired of trying to explain that they find beauty in all things, dark or light. Or that I just draw what strikes me. One does not control their muse, one merely follows her…enslaved by her song.

Anyway, I amused myself by thinking up a way to draw something pretty that would irk them. Because I am a petulant child.

That idea turned out to be a faery masturbating in a flower patch.

Tinkering Her Bell

“Tinkering Her Bell” was a lot of fun to draw. It’s social media response was way more positive than I expected and only offended one person (who I barely knew and decided wasn’t worthy of keys of the kingdom because of their prudish mindset. No one needs that kind of negativity).

I wish I had used watercolor paper instead of the bristol this is drawn on… but it was before I realized how much better blending down worked on watercolor paper with these pens. But the image is watercolor brush pens on bristol. I would sell it if it was wanted, but haven’t really considered it because it was just a fun drawing. 9×12

The Sickest of them ALL

If you have looked around this blog, and you don’t already know me; you have probably wondered what TSOTA means. Well it is an acronym for The Sickest of them ALL.

Like most nicknames it wasn’t chosen by me, but I didn’t shy from it either.

As for the origin, while I generally know the sources, I don’t know the specifics…because they never told me. I do know that it had something to do with the fact that I find a lot of things that other people are grossed out or offended by to be humorous…and because I am a paranoid freak I assume that it wasn’t entirely a compliment. It is not a problem, because I do know myself and frankly I am very comfortable in my weirdo skin. It is when I am in my “stupid human suit” (Still love Donnie Darko, watch it if you haven’t) that I am least comfortable…but I can wear it to make the interactions necessary to live a productive life.

That said, if I keep doing this and you continue to explore my art, you will absolutely find that I live up to the name.

The example of that I am sharing today is entitled “Still would”.

Still Would.

Still would is water based brush pens on bristol. It is not for sale because unfortunately it is on the back of another piece (don’t ask how I managed that), that is very important to its owner. Of course if there is demand, I can arrange to have prints made and I may do that just to get this one out there.

For those of you looking at this and asking “why?”, because its funny.

The idea occurred to me because of a drawing by another artist who uses the moniker Goblin Trash (You can visit his etsy shop here.) did a drawing of a woman with big eyes for nipples and put the caption my eyes are down here on it.

Being who I am I laughed until I couldn’t breathe, and my brain took it further while I was in my laughing fit.

Some more body parts got inverted, and I did this one.

When it came time to name it, I wondered what could make such a tasteless image more vulgar. I only needed to think in crude male terms used when looking at women in a base way to find it.

Still would.

It doesn’t say much for us dudes in general… but it is funny.
