Mose Allison - "The Fires Of Spring" (1976) Show more
"...No one can say he's made the most of life,
No one can tell what comes with dying.
The fires of spring remain the toast of life,
Each one in time, a crucifying."
(The later version -1998- is more sedate and haunting, but I love these raucous horns so much!)
also, I should make a sketchbook zine. A lot of these are actually pretty good. I've been meaning to make one for years.
One of my pals made a fun suggestion - which was to let him and my other friends (also artists) curate my sketchbook zines. I might take him up on that offer when we're all a lil' less busy.
@sajan "dictator hat" !! a world wherein the person wearing the hat gets to set the rules...
It's never too late for #ArtTips :D
In an establishing shot, if your focal location is strongly to one side, it can read as "arriving" or "departing", depending on whether the reader/viewer looks across the surroundings first, or looks from the focal point to the surroundings.
In a comic, this usually depends on the reading direction.
Nearly finished with the kickstarter! Just need to design an A3 poster as a reward. To help me, I've cherry picked some of my scanned sketchbook drawings, and re-named them. I figured their file names could be a fun prompt-list, so go wild.
New big business album.
Language is fun.
English: I am thirsty
Fr/Sp: I have thirst
Gaelic (h/t @kiki_d): Thirst is on me
Hindi: To me, thirst is coming
Hello my lovely •ARTists!
Yesterday I changed our sign-up option to the new "request registration" feature. This allows new users to fill out a form to request an account here, rather than relying solely on invites from current members.
This is an experiment! We'll see how it goes. I'm sure 99% of the new users we get this way will be great, but just in case, please keep an eye out for spammy accounts! Report any you see and your excellent mod team will deal with them.
19 The Sun for #AprilArtJourney. This one was nice. Different from the other ones I feel, much more clear and crisp, but that's what the sun does, right?
Picture shows a bright painting of a big glowing sun above a sharply lit meadow. Two figures stand on the light, outlined in by the harsh light. The sun is a bit 2 dimensional, the rest rather naturalistic.
Horror drippy blood font:
green wash background of beach sand and in foreground is a coconut, but the coconut has been carved so it looks like a SKULL
pull quote along bottom: "I've never been more scared of a nut... or more nuts about a scare!" [find writer from same publisher to attribute quote to]
Plot: Coconuts figure out how to kill. Let the contract writer figure out the rest. FALL 2019 release.
paperback release MSRP $5.99
writing about art?! Show more
the last sentence isn't to trash people that do make resources like that - I love that shit. It's solely to trash my own hypothetical content based on how I'm envisioning it.

There was a good question on mastoart either earlier today or yesterday about coming up with art on the spot/without reference or prompt. I wanted to write a long answer/didn't have time to/then thought maybe It'd be fun to make more in-depth resources about this kind of stuff.
Any ideas on how I should do this? I'm tempted to just write some short books/stick them online for people to read/download. I'm naturally concerned about how arrogant/pretentious this might come across
