Halloween Pumpkin Carving: The Matches edition!
10/30/09 at 05:40 PM by Cue the Sun
Ah man, I love carving pumpkins. Probably the best part of halloween for me (I'm not really one for costumes... I suck, I know.)

I did my first music-related pumpkin last year (I attempted Bayside's "Shudder" and half failed...) and I decided to try my hand at a different one. So here ya go: my Decomposer pumpkin!

teehee it's so adorable! 8D

When I'm older I'm going to buy 10 pumpkins and spend an entire day basking in the lovely smell of pumpkin innards. Toasted pumpkin seeds anyone? Mmm.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

A tribute to The Matches
09/05/09 at 08:27 PM by Cue the Sun
I took into consideration their tagline: "A band as weird as you are." as I started painting this.

It's a combination of sponge painting, finger/hand/arm painting, thread-covered-in-black-paint painting, and smudging-paint-with-a-ruler painting and regular brush painting. It's been very fun. I've gotten black paint all over the wall behind my easel, and everything within splatter-range. Am I going to be in deep shit when my dad finds out? Yes. Do I care? ....yes. But oh well. I don't think I've ever had so much fun painting anything, ever.

I don't know if this is done or not. I like how simple it is, but I sort of feel like I could take it further? As a painting, I think it would be done. But as a tribute painting, I think I may need to add more. I wanted to get some of your favorite lyrics from any of the three Matches albums because I wanted to include some text but I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to put. And how about Matches-related imagery? Any symbols/pictures that you strongly relate to The Matches? Help me out?

Of all the videos of The Matches' last show, none of them broke my heart like this one

Jon is awesome. That is all.

I'm d-d-decomposing

New pens in action! What a glorious work-in-progress!!

Just ink for now. Will be mixed media, eventually. I love working on larger pieces (this one's 14"x17".) It makes me feel like I'm 100x better than I actually am. I'm not really sure why.

Yay for requests that are super fun to draw and allow for some artistic freedom!

I'm on my 6th cup of coffee today. Someone confiscate my coffeemaker, please.
