Other Artists

Posted Mar 2009

Artists frequently draw each other. It's how we know each other, how we relate. I recently drew 2 other Artists.

Adaptation

Posted Mar 2009

I just watched the most fantastic movie! Adaptation - starring Meryl Streep and Nicholas Cage. I had my pen moving, just drawing litl bits of whatever I saw - like doodling - while I was spellbound by this profound movie. Who wrote it??? I'll let you know if I find out.

Here are just Some of the words from the movie. Might be slightly paraphrased, might be direct. I just wrote stuff that I wanted to remember. I just drew because that's a good way to relax.

Near the beginning of the movie, Meryl Streep says "I wanted to want something as much as those people wanted those plants." And "I suppose I do have one unembarrassed passion. I want to know what it feel like to care about something passionately."

Then, near the end of the movie, Nicholas Cage is talking to his brother. He tells his brother that he had seen some supposedly fantastic girl (back in high school) who had been making fun of the brother behind his back. The brother says that he had heard it too. But it didn't bring him down. He said "I loved Sara. It was mine. My love. I owned it. Sara didn't have the right to take it away. I can love whoever I want." And he says "You are what you love. Not what loves you."

And there's more. About life and love and passion. The real thing - explained.

Here are the pictures that came out of me while I was watching. Not major works of Art. Just the real me. Doing real life. (I think the passion is in the studying, the desire. We don't always have to be intense about it - It's more about always being interested in it. I also think we need both passion And 'ho-hum-drum' both for a full Life. It's like needing both activity And sleep.)
