24 june 2011

Strictly black and white; it's been an exhausting week.

And, of course, happy birthday to my favorite 1 year old.

Today's post is brought to you by the letter "M". As in Mavericks! Or, um Miami. Or as in "Man, there is a lot of schadenfreude being enjoyed in Ohio right now."

Here we see Yosemite's Avalanche Control Team in action. Also, I do believe my next band will be called "Avalanche Control Team." Of course, I've made that same joke previously about another thing I saw in the paper, but that very fact highlights a social benefit the daily paper provides that hardly ever gets mentioned: it is a reliable random band name generator. Let's use the June 10th paper (which is in front of me as I write this) as an example. A cursory glance reveals the following possible band names: Square Patterns, Pingpong, Fearful Turkey, Gingrich Rift, The Buscemi Code, The Shake Up, Dementia Therapy, Vernon and the Family, and the District Maps. That's just today's paper. I guess what I'm saying is that as long as newspapers are being printed, there's really no excuse for your band having a crappy name.

About a minute after I finished this one I thought of a much better composition of its pieces. Hindsight, of course, is the downside to having to crank out a drawing every day while trying to live the rest of your life as well. I guess I'll save that new and improved version for one of the paintings I'll do from these sketches, when I'm no longer doing these sketches every day.

I've had to draw some pretty reprehensible characters for this project thus far, but Nancy Garrido certainly ranks among the most vile. Between her and Ratko Mladic my recent Friday nights have been serious, difficult affairs. It's a weird transaction, to draw somebody who is utterly loathsome. At least in today's drawing I found some balance by drawing lovable local Vegas drunk Oscar Goodman. Brown pinstripes! That man is unflappable.
