Not An Answer

imstillherefin

I heard these words a long time ago in the movie Treasure Planet and they always stuck with me. I like repeating them to myself whenever I feel judged, embarrassed, anxious, hopeless, whatever. I like remembering my arms still move, words still come out of my mouth, brains still on. Nobody’s taken anything from me and unless they kill me dead they never could. I exist, I’ll keep existing. You can love it, I can love it, you can hate it, I can hate it, doesn’t matter, still here. Still gonna be here. Still enjoying it up, down, sideways, standing still. Still stilling.

Your move universe.

Dah Vinchy

Someone wrote a 1700 WORD POST in response to my Brain Pilots post which essentially states that I am a narcissistic leech who needs Christ. 1700 WORDS! In addition to being 100% accurate it’s probably the most glorious thing I’ve ever seen. It means my words have a response power ratio of 1910%. I’m basically Ashton Kutcher now.

AND, just in time for the post about me being a lazy bastard and my new fame I’ve completed my illustration about aiming high. I hope you enjoy it, but if you don’t please submit your thesis on why it sucks by May 30 for review.

Dreambending

Processed with VSCOcam with x1 preset

Today I woke up, and read my texts, emails, and messages like usual. The weird part is that I wasn’t awake. The weirder part is that I knew it.

Lately I’ve been waking up only half-way, and reading things that my subconscious is creating without my involvement on my phone. I don’t have to think of the things before I read it, they are already there just like they would be if I was awake. Sometimes it’s a message from family or friends, and sometimes it’s spam mail from an oil change place that doesn’t exist. I’ll just keep reading them like I would a normal message because as far as I’m concerned it’s all new information, even though I know I’m not awake. It’s like some kind of fake internet my mind created. I’ve read entire news stories and marketing pitches in this dream internet, sometimes I even think I learned something new. Who knows maybe I did.

I also tried making some kind of comprehensive life philosophy list today but that didn’t work out..

A really, really stupid phoenix.

There’s only one thing to do with a new notebook, and that’s fill the first page to the brim with complete crap.

What other way could there be to begin such an endless task….

Bac·ca·lau·re·ate

I’ve graduated! I wish someone had doubted me so I could tell them to suck it right now. Unfortunately I’m surrounded by loving and supportive people.

Needless to say my autobiography about overcoming hardships is not going well.

Cheers to the next chapter!

I’m… You’re… We’re insane.

HUMANmarked

Do you feel that? It’s the sound of everyone judging you. Like the low whine of a vacuum cleaner on the wrong floor setting. You can rest easy tonight though denizens. We’re all weirdos with stuff to hide. When your boss does find your anonymous cake blog you probably think he’ll never look at you the same way again, but more likely he’ll just say “Hey, I too enjoy a good cake.”

We’re all defendants in a courtroom with no jury. Being weird is the only state of existence. There’s no judge, just a hologram.

Sure maybe nothing’s ever quite as good as you pictured it in your head, but that’s a good thing. It’s like you’re in the Tour de France and your coach is barking strategies out a car window. You’ll never catch him, guys in a damn car, but at least you have something to chase. That stupid voice you’ll never catch up to might be annoying, but it’s on your team.

Play it cool, man.

awkward

Somehow doodling little fuzzy hats on my stick figures makes me feel warmer. It’s 0*F here in Idaho so naturally I drew this with gloves on, that’s why the lines look all janky, which according to WordPress is not a real word.

I have a history of awkward moments with retail employees. I don’t think we understand each other. I’d try correcting them “KEVIN… no.. KE-VIN”, but it wasn’t worth it. Evan is a fine name anyways and he apparently has great taste in coffee. I’ll just be Evan, that’s fine. “TO GO….. TO … GO…. OUT……… OUT” Okay I guess I’m eating here. At least the music is nice and I don’t have to wait until I get home. La-de-dah.

Oh well. If Ryan Gosling taught me anything in the movie Drive it’s that speaking up is totally uncool. If you need me Evan will be enjoying his hot water to stay.

Dreamsketching

dream1200

Last night I had a dream. No, not about the civil rights of my children. About boats! Fast boats. Boats so fast they can’t be controlled. Flying over bridges and crashing back down into the river below. Skimming across the surface of super highways lit like laser beams and sunlight. Racing almost into another dimension. Accelerating and accelerating until you can’t take it any more. You jump out, and watch your rocket boat crash into the side of a building.

I’ve seen this before. Over the years as I’ve begun tracking and sketching my dreams, a common theme has emerged: Speed and the inability to stop it. Whether I’m walking, biking, running, driving, snowboarding, flying, or boating, I can’t stop. Sometimes I want to stop, sometimes I try to stop, but I can’t stop. I can never stop.

I’ve asked doctors “Why can’t I ever stop in my dreams?” but they seem puzzled. I’ve asked mechanics if they can fix my brake lines but don’t understand when I point to my head.

I guess I’ll just keep moving.

I really wanted to make this into a finished comic, but like all humans I’m forced to prioritize… (Thanks Obama…)

Maybe later yeah?

My Obsession

ROAR

I’ve been drawing this ‘maw’ a lot. I count at least a couple as I scroll down my blog. It’s not that I really care about this image in particular, but the emotion. Ever since I started drawing I’ve wanted to create something that truly pushes the limit of intensity. Something where every hair in the image is screaming at you, as if it would break if pushed a little further. I feel like this emotion is the next step in art for me. It captures something I felt when I was a kid, when the world was mine for the taking.

Incoming

Promotional poster for myself. Took me forever to get the stars to show because of the ultra high resolution of the image. Maybe I’ll add some more details later but I’m new at this so it always takes me a little longer than the seasoned veterans. Thanks for looking! (Medium : CS5 / Intuos 5)

Generational Marketing

I was watching a presentation about generational marketing at Boise State University. I think I accurately summed it up in these notes I took.
