I've moved:

new gubba blog, click here!

(sorry Blogger, no offense or anything, we were good friends while it lasted. my bands website is on Wordpress too, so it just made sense to make my personal blog on the same site! i update way more than I did on this one anyway.)

Pickle Fry Scissor Paper

I have been dropping by the studio once and again, not nearly enough as I should. I worked on some small illustrations today, a pigeon and a pencil and a pickle. Sat in my chair for a bit and swiveled around while staring at the white walls in front of me. I'm not quite sure what my studio is still missing but I definitely think it needs something to make if feel more at home. Not that it isn't conducive to a work environment right now, it just would be more comfortable if I could figure it out. Hah, maybe its just finished art that would help! No news on my comic so far, a few pages are done but nothing seems to be coming together as a whole...something is missing again! I've been doing more collages than anything else, and I'm not sure why I don't sketch more often now, it seems the craftier side of me wants to come out, and I am more interested in scissors, glue, paper, and rulers than I am a simple pen and paper. Maybe it is just a natural shift I am making to want to do something more constructive, or maybe that is just the default once you hit a creative block. Shifting gears and going into raw material mode.

Studio Time

I worked a little at the studio today, with some old books I have and some glue. This is what I came up with.

Hi. So my Flickr account kind of screwed me over. I set my photos to private on Flickr, and then reset them back to Public that same day, and any photo that was set to private is now a non-function "This photo is currently unavailable" big white block on all of my blog posts practically. There isn't any way to fix it other than resetting all the HTML coding, which I won't because it would take too long. So now my blog looks awful, and to top it off I really haven't posted anything fun and exciting lately!
Well I'm in a band called Braaaains, and thats pretty cool. I play electric bass guitar, and there is a singer, drummer and crazy rock n' roll guitarist. We have our first gig ever on January 25th at the "Icehouse", it is just a big empty looking shack-ish type building with the faded words "ICE" on the front, because apparently, one could go there in the past to Anyway, it is in North Park, across from the new late night eatery "Commonwealth Cafe" and a little further down from that hipster pizza spot "Lefty's". There will be three other bands, and art from all the artists that rent space in the shack-turned-roomy_studio. I don't even know what time it starts yet....
So that's the latest news. I am no where near even beginning the next issue of Pigeon-Toad Comics #2 which is so utterly lame I dare not even attempt to describe how lame I feel, and I have been currently working on an acrylic painting of a pigeon on a 24" x 24" canvas. My new studio is lovely, wonderfully spacey, perfect.....and yet I only go there maybe two times a week at $195 a month in rent! Good lord! What is wrong with me?
Perhaps part of the problem is my new obsession (well, old obsession reborn) with selling things on Ebay. Want to go see what I am wasting my time on these days? Click Here:
I go to various thrift stores, rummage for an hour or so, select the best and most stylish items, take pictures of them, upload them, edit them, post them to Ebay, and then check the Ebay sight every ten seconds to see if someone has bid. It's kind of like a really bad addiction of something really dorky. So I've been setting limits on myself on how much time I should actually spend on Ebay, as silly as that sounds, and trying to get back to the studio!
Phew! That is the last two months of my life, approximately.
