red teeth and the Jernigan skull


     With this guy I think I was remembering a little of what I accomplished way back when with Jernigan’s skull.  The similarities being mainly the fuzzy seams between the bones of the skull and, I guess, the profile orientation.

     I was going to mention there was about ten years between this guy and the Jernigan skull.  Then I began thinking about whether or not I’ve made ten years worth of progress.  Now I’m sitting here wondering if I really care about the answer to that question.

    • Good point. Definite words to consider for any artist. Although, I’m not sure I get much from any one piece in particular. It’s more like I start to suffer if I stop creating. Lately my art feels more like a monkey on my back than therapy. But if I’m at least tinkering around with it in one way or another I generally feel better. The trick for me is sustaining activity, as I tend to get easily demotivated.

  1. HUGGS on the demotivation. I feel ya. Trying to build a better loco – motive on my end for that reason. I just wish there were more hours in the day or at least my time management skills were better. Too many ideas and not enough time. I’ve kind set my workspace / studio up so that I’m trapped into action. If I’m at my desks I have no choice but to be making the art. I’ve worked hard at minimizing distractions and variables in my work space so that my focus when I sit down is always about the art.

    I also understand the monkey on your back aspect as well. Sometimes the muse can be a bit daemonic.

    btw – I have to keep retyping things because I keep getting lost in the cool orange and black background you’ve got going on (as of 110913). It is very pleasing and eye stealing.

    • Trapped into action. That’s an interesting way to put it. I may have to experiment with that, as it seems like a much more pragmatic approach than my idealistic conditions of being well-rested, well-fed and recently boned in order to be sufficiently composed and motivated to produce the artstuffs.

      Thanks on the background! If you didn’t catch it the first time around, here’s the original drawing if you’d like to take a closer look.

  2. I tried to go the well rested route, but I felt like I was constantly chasing my tail and never getting to the work, so I got a little ruthless with myself. It sucks many times, but I feel like for the first time in my life I’m getting things done artistically. I’m a capricorn though – we like a steep cliff to climb. That and over time I’ve realized that I work better within a structure.

    As to well composed, some of my best works have come from me sitting down to draw because I’m at my wits end and all I have left is the art.

    After looking at the <a href="http://fuzzyskeletonian.com/2012/10/boney-background/"background original, here’s an idea/challenge – A Fuzzy Skeletonian Alphabet. :-) I haven’t seen all of your work here so if you’ve done an alphabet already, please ignore me.
