Sharpie + digital + cynicism




What was that I was saying before about unnecessary blasphemy? I need to start playing with different themes...

digital collage and other indulgences



Seems like half my work lately has been salvaging lost pieces. This one is the original octo-christ, I actually started it long before the illustration I posted, but abandoned it at some point when I couldn't figure out how to finish it in an interesting way. It's all digital collage with some heavy cleanup. I post a lot of unnecessarily blasphemous things, but this doesn't take itself as seriously as it might look, I'm just semi-obsessed with christian iconography and a sucker for apocalyptic aesthetics. I'm a person of very refined tastes.

I have no idea who Shepard Fairey is; what are you talking about?



I drew these monkeys like 2 years ago and was just never satisfied with a final composition/treatment for them. After a lot of indecision and finally some good advice from Lookah, this is how it turned out. It's just slightly more derivative of a certain popular artist than I would like, but whatever, it's fun to indulge sometimes.

...and behold the octo-christ



Almost entirely analog for a change (added a bit of texture digitally).
