Long needed update, sadly it's mostly doodles. I'm sure it's not really considered "Professional" to post doodles and bad sketches, but I feel like if I posted only "good" work, it would be like only putting attractive and high quality photos on facebook: Not really me. I have ugly days, I have goofy days, I have cell phone camera days. I have shitty, half-assed, messy drawings as well. I wish more artists would post their process, their ideas, their sketchbooks, their shitty drawings. I want to see both sides of your face, baby.

Canary in a coal mine.

"Life for an actual canary in a coal mine could be described in three words - short but meaningful. Early coal mines did not feature ventilation systems, so miners would routinely bring a caged canary into new coal seams. Canaries are especially sensitive to methane and carbon monoxide, which made them ideal for detecting any dangerous gas build-ups. As long as the canary in a coal mine kept singing, the miners knew their air supply was safe. A dead canary in a coal mine signalled an immediate evacuation.

Even as gas detection technology improved, some mining companies still relied on the 'canary in a coal mine' method well into the 20th century. Other animals were used occasionally, but only the canary had the ability to detect small concentrations of gas and react instinctively.

Today, the practice of using a canary in a coal mine has become part of coal mining lore, but the ideology behind it has become a popular expression. The phrase living like a canary in a coal mine often refers to serving as a warning to others. The actual canary in a coal mine had little control over its fate, but it continued to sing anyway. In one sense, living like a canary in a coal mine indicates a willingness to experience life's dangers without compromise."


"I sometimes wondered what the use of any of the arts was. The best thing I could come up with was what I call the canary in the coal mine
theory of the arts. This theory says that artists are useful to society
because they are so sensitive. They are super-sensitive. They keel over
like canaries in poison coal mines long before more robust types
realize that there is any danger whatsoever."

The tingle to draw is slowly returning, and I am dreading the next semester less and less. Next week is my vacation to Green Lake, where I usually spend most of the time watching sci-fi movies/motorcycle races and drawing/painting again. Expect posts within the next 2 weeks containing new pieces.

Drawings from the past week.
Even though I scanned these, the quality is poor. I'm still working on how I'll color/paint these, so when they are done, I'll post better images. At least they are better than cell phone pics.

I'm taking advantage of my new paid account features, and re-vamping this journal. I made all of my friends-only entries private because I am going to use the group system from now on. Also, I'm going through my friends list and deleting people I don't remember. I might delete someone on accident, if I do, let me know.
