Trucking…like the Do Da man…………

Somewhere, deep in the Midwest, a man (or a woman) is driving a brown truck to a small town destination in Iowa.  When the package he or she delivers, finally gets to this house in this is isolated area, presumably Friday, I will unveil my last drawing.  In the meantime, I’m just trucking along.

Some of you may remember this past summer I came up with this, also featured in my failures of 2014 post.

Completely missed what my intention was….some colorful female alien wrestling with a shadow in a bow-tie was far from what I had in mind.  I was going through a kind of rough relationship time, and I think it shows.

But I still am intrigued by the idea of a dancing couple.  My thought is a relationship is a dance, always moving, always give and take.  Or to paraphrase Woody Allen, you’ve got a dead shark.

Anyway, part of the problem with the above sketch is that I did the figures from my imagination.  Didn’t do too bad a job, thanks to drawing so many naked people in art school.  However it just wasn’t hitting what I wanted.  So, I took a pic from the internet, to be changed greatly, so as not to violate copyright.

 

Argh, couldn’t find it…must be on the other computer.  So, I give you this.

And so, I keep working on the sketch.  It’s shaping up to be a blast from the past!

Sometimes, never happens

I look back on some of my old work: “Companions”, “Autumn Song” and others, and I’m reminded of the relationship that I thought would never end. But both he and I are no longer the people we were at the beginning. My art and relating it to contributing to the world are foremost for me, now. So, I left.

I’m living in a furnished room until I save the money for my own place. In the meantime, I can only do small drawings, and I left my scanner and good camera behind. So, from my Android, I present “The Dancers”.As you can see, relationships are still on my mind. I looked at this again, and wondered, “Are they dancing or wrestling?”

Just a note…does anyone care how much I hate Windows 8?
