Hysterics, 2003, oil stick, pencil and acrylics
i rarely browse through Society6 shops, but this shirt is high on my “WANT” list. this pretty boy is my fave from her battered “ballpoint boys” series. i love looking at her drawings, especially the way their surreal colors glow gracefully through her crisp hatch marks.
sketchbook blog for more.
selected drawings from the sketchbooks because i feel slightly bad for the lack of updates, but being off the internet feels good. lately, i’ve only been using it for the radio. i’m also very bad at piecing together bigger-than-the-scanner drawings, sorry.
Trying to work out my feelings in a…positive way.
Millefeuiles, ink wash and watercolor on paper, 6 7/8”x10 3/4”
typically, when i see the name “Wayne Thiebaud”, i expect an overflow of candy-colored rainbows. his sugary quirkiness shines through even in monochrome. i swear to god, i get cravings after i browse through his art book.
The Islands, pre-1991, graphite and ink on paper
i admire the simplicity and fluidity of his drawings.
Can you appreciate that this is an animated drawing of someone drawing and it’s fucking perfect.
watching people draw is always mesmerizing.
