|BRAINSICK : Sans Warning|
9x12 pen and marker on Crescent Rendr paper
Spontaneous art is rare for me these days. Whereas in high school I created much of my work on the fly, now I'm lucky if I don't overthink myself out of finishing x number of ideas.
A couple days ago, I made a sketch I rather liked:
|Sketchbook version of Precipice.|
I decided to redo it directly on a free sheet of paper. Crescent Rendr paper is wonderful: absolutely nothing bleeds through to the other side. (However, time allows certain marker colors - yellows, in my experience - to cause a bloom on the other side after a couple years.)
Sans Warning is a rework of "Shakin' Like Tremolo" - a spontaneous 2005 drawing:
2005 and 2010 renditions "Shakin' Like Tremolo." Inspired by The Cars' "Moving In Stereo."
It felt wonderful drawing these new pieces. Seeing as INKtober is around the corner, I need to rekindle my ink-madness and get ready for a month of new drawings! I want to elaborate on old and new concepts - hopefully without making anything too similar to what I've done already.
The sketch page of Precipice was drawn to Porcupine Tree's "The Sky Moves Sideways (Alternate)."
