peeps with your graphic designs and arts stuff, please post your latest here, those threads are among my faves...i just started painting about 3 months ago, fun as fuck medium it is, here's some of my stuff its um, and abstract of trees, the cross pattern the roots and the organic shapes top and...ya. i have this tradition with one of my best friends, where for the last 8 or 9 years we have this tradition where we leave a gift on eachother's door step with a sort of joke gift/inside joke, and do not even ring eachother's door bell. we just leave it there for the other to absorb and with a card with an explanation of how the gift came about to be. this year i just learned about painting and we met up the day before this painting so i just painted the conversation we had. ok it made sense at the time and she loved it. this event had made my birthday and her birthday feel like new years day because of the anticipation. ^this is a visualization of my nieces in the future, they're about 1 years old right now, they are so goddamn cute. the vines of the flowers are the initials of their names. brown babies are adorable ^my first "abstract" i guess, its just about a metamorphosis i guess with what looks like a phoenix, cause this is the best fucking year of my life, i feel i've evolved so much and this reflects the change in my life...but really this painting is actually just trying to use all the paints that i poured on my canvas...like i mentioned i just started painting, so what i did in this case was put 2 reds, 2 blues, and 2 yellows and crimson and white and black, and i'm stingy with the paints cause i had no cash, so i wanted to make sure i use every drop on my pallette and put every drop on the canvas, haha pathetic, but i like how it turned out. i'm rereading what i typed and it sounds hippy, i want to barf flowers, i painted this in my painting course. they wanted u to paint flowers. so i painted flowres. teacher said she liked the "greens", and she had some suggestions for lighting purposes....but she was really great. basically my class was a bunch of seniors passing time haha, seriously, when i'm that old, that's what i want to be doing, attending classes. i couldnt related to any of them culturally, but through the paintings they painted, it was beautiful to witness things that exist in people that dont know they are aware of till later in life. some of the paintings were just...fuck..its like u can put some paint and a brush on some bum's hands that u walk by on the street or something and they have some profound images to communicate. this is why painting is like the most beautiful disciplines u can admire...it doesnt require rhythm like music, its just inate to every motherfucker another case of "use all the paints on the pallete u cheap brown motherfucker!" this one was obvious ^metropolis on mars ^my teacher just told us how to use the palette knife, and the techniques with it, and this was our exercise in class to utilize what she taught us. this was about my 3rd painting ever and i loved the process of it so godamn much, and it just made me want to keep doing it. i'm a modest dude, but i'm really proud of this one. she suggested the part of incorporating a tinge of purple into the white areas...that's something i never would have guessed on my own..and it was GOLD. people, ALWAYS RESPECT YOUR TEACHERS. THANKS MISS, FOR YOUR TEACHINGS, will remember your insight forever.

    New logo for my radio show/blog, I was going for that late 70's disco look. Used pencil crayons, then photoshop to give it a more airbrush look.
