Things Can Always Get Worse


It hasn't been a good July. I've been pretty disappointed with my work (both day job and personal) for some time and was on the verge of quitting my job when a family medical emergency suddenly came up and put my own meager problems into perspective.

Watching: Fedora by Billy Wilder, Suburbicon by George Clooney, Drunken Master by Woo-Ping Yuen

Listening to: Something For Kate - Beautiful Sharks (Deluxe Edition)

Bookish



Trying to get out of an artist block which might seem weird because I draw all day for work, but storyboarding uses a different part of my brain.

 Both outfits were based on clothes by the brand Princess Highway.

Watching: Two For the Road by Stanley Donen, A Foreign Affair by Billy Wilder
Reading: Gilded Needles by Michael McDowell, Strange Weather by Joe Hill
Listening to: Gillian Welch - Time (The Revelator), Neko Case - Hell-On, The Nels Cline 4 - Currents, Constellations, Crooked Fingers - Dignity and Shame

Ghosts of 2017

I was looking through my 2017 folder and found these two unfinished drawings. It's a pity, because I do like both drawings, but there are flaws in each that make it not worth the effort to finish. I was mid-way through colouring the bottom picture, but I think it looks better in greyscale.

Watching: Cafe Society by Woody Allen, Wind River by Taylor Sheridan, The Death of Stalin by Armando Iannucci
Reading: The Elementals by Michael McDowell, American Tabloid by James Ellroy
Listening to: Kenyon Hopkins - ...On Film, Stephen Malkmus - Sparkle Hard, Courtney Barnett - Tell Me How You Really Feel, Lauren O'Connell - Details
