I've decided to quit Postwaste, at least in its current form. The daily format of this blog and the formal feeling it's taken on have led me to stray from my original intention, which was simply to sketch. Instead, I find myself trying to circumvent the fundamentals of drawing and get right to the flashy bits. This blog has been a great exercise in concepts like color, values, and rendering, but ultimately I need to spend more time on the basics.

For the foreseeable future I'll be sticking to anatomical studies and drawing from life. I want to build a strong foundation in traditional media, which is something I've always neglected in favor of a digital approach.

I expect I'll still post here from time to time. For now, though, so long! Thanks for following my little experiment.



Two Hundred Sixty-Three

No post today due to personal matter; try to make it up soon.


Two Hundred Sixty-Two

Lately I've been listening to an album called Moon Colony Bloodbath. It's a collaborative work between the Mountain Goats and John Vanderslice which tells the tale of a man employed by a secret organ harvesting operation on the moon and his descent into madness. My last three entries here have been based off the songs from this album, and there'll be three more coming up. Here we see Bobby Beausoleil out in the desert past the LA County line, burying a canister in the middle of the night.
