Flexible Spasms - Coked up strychnine O.D.
I like and live to create. Be it paintings, sculptures, drawings or every now and then music.
I didn’t dabbed into music for a long time so it got itchy and I really wanted to make some new stuff.
I found out about caustic for android os and it’s a fairy good music editor with some cool generators and most important almost everything can be tweaked.
I made this nifty noisy song with it. It’s electronic, it’s noisy and it’s what I guess an overdose of coke mixed with strychnine would feel like. Enjoy ;)
100th post!!! - ink, markers and fineliner. top most work approx. 30*40 cm. others 5.5*4 cm.
The la So for my 100th post on tumblr I decided to upload some placeholders and one final artwork for a card game I’m making.
A couple years back I got the idea about a card game. I was very aware there were already a shitload of card games out there and most of them only last for a few years except a few big/mainstream ones. So I had to think it through a lot on how I could make it somewhat stand out from the gross out there.
Fastforward to autumn 2013 I had already done tons of research on other card and board games, game mechanics etc. and I decided to make a test deck. Up until now I finished about 60 cards and also did a few test plays. While my mechanics need to be tweaked a little and a lot(most of it works as I intended) I am now in the process of upscaling the artwork so they can actually be printed(the 60 cards I got a.t.m. are handmade/drawn on so they have no use for printing).
The first larger work I did is the frost wurm, and others will follow.
While my game probably won’t come out for a long time to come from time to time I’ll upload some larger artwork alongside the original.
YAY 100th POST!!!
Where’s kitty? - Pencil on paper 20*20 cm.
In the previous post I talked about 6 assignments you could choose from. I finished one, the fishes form the previous post, and attempted a go at another one. 15 drawings of still lifes(or in accordance to perception) with a title and in a portfolio decorated accordingly to the works inside. I did not get to finish it as I only have 9 drawings but I turned them in anyway.
The idea behind them was to include one hello kitty object in every drawing but in a not too obvious way. As such the title chosen for the work is a spoof on where’s waldo, a well known(at least in English speaking countries) children’s book where’s this one character you have to find among a lot of characters looking like him.
Birth of fish - markers and fineliner on paper 30*42 cm.
I applied for art college of Illustration and Design over at Zwolle, The Netherlands, and just like almost every art academy there were home assignments. Instead of one assignment(As with the HKU) I got the luxury to choose between 6 assignments. At least one had to be finished but more is usually better(I guess).
One of them was to draw the birth of a fish, no panels and title of the drawing included.
After some research on what fish look like I came up with the idea to do a cycle, and when drawing out the scene I thought about how those stained glass windows in churches always have a whole story on them in just one window. So I did some more research and voila, glass stained birth of fish :).
The colours became a little bit dull jwhen looking at on a regular surface but extremely bright when held against a light source(Even weak ones).
I’m quite content with the end result how the stained glass is emulated, but for the drawing itself it’s a bit like meh.
Oh, and I got accepted at the art college :D
