Good Morning !

Posted Aug 2009

More High School students getting ready for College. Any day now......

Today I looked at these people with amazement. I see so many thousands of people, year after year, going off to College as though they're the winners - the best. But all that usually turns into just another person who has a job. Plain. Goes to work, buys a house. Doesn't do anything extraordinary. I mean, like do all these winners think their parents are extraordinary? Or aren't they just normal people who do Something. To pay the bills and stay alive. Could seem mundane. Yet their parents were the High School stars of Yesteryear?

But that's all there is! That is what our world is made up of. The constant roll of another classful of graduates. Doing Something. Shaping the world that they find.

That's why things have changed since I was born. We now recycle our plastic bags. And people pick up their dog's poop. We have huge Super Markets that cheaply sell things that would have been treasures for people in the Colonial era, people who aspired to be able to dye their homemade quilt fabrics Blue. We take blue fabric (and a whole lot more) things for granted. And Why do we have them? Why do we live like this? Because plain people, people who graduated, got jobs doing Something, made their little votes and chose what they wanted to buy - these plain people gently changed the world.

The children are The Future of the World. Really.

Color on Computer

Posted Aug 2009

Frankly, I'm amazed to see the previous 2 posts together. I can really see how much better pictures look on the Computer when they're Colored on the Computer.

The grainier ones that I Colored on the paper with Colorsticks - They look much better in person. Here you can't see how lovely the colors really look.

Babies

Posted Aug 2009

I'll be drawing at a 1-year-old's Party again this weekend. I'm wishing I had new Samples.

So I drew these Caricatures of babies - just from miscellaneous photos that I find around.

I laughed when I finished the 2nd one. Because, not planning it, it looked just like I would have imagined Matt from the Arkhams (Bobcat's Band) to look If he was a baby.
