Illustrators, take my advice. Don't overdo your stuff. Don't make it too smooth. Leave some roughness and dirt at the edges. Let it dance on your paper, digital canvas or whatever... I made this illo in under 2 minutes for a magazine. And the reason was I only had 2 minutes to spare.
And the second part to that project. I think they will be two acrylic pieces. 5x7in but I'll make up for the size on details... Beginning of the stories. Both silent. And hopefully will be up for sale locally. Haven't made up the courage to actually finish and put them up. We shall see. Also, once finished I'll come up with the price... But how much should I ask? Ugh.
After a long and excruciating war, on March 26, 1971, Bangladesh gained independence from Pakistan. The gruesome details of this war is often overlooked by people. Over 3 million Bangladeshis died trying to preserve our beautiful country. Many professors and intellects were collected and buried alive in mass graves and women were brutally raped by Pakistani soldiers. I am extremely grateful for my ancestors who fought in the war so bravely to conserve our freedom and culture. .
This piece is to commemorate the many badass & resilient women that fought alongside their brothers. .
I, I, I, I don't wanna get close
I haven't been the same since I loved that hoe
I haven't been the same since I lost my bro
I say I'm gonna change when I know I won't
I get high, I love to smoke
She gon' lie like I'm a joke
I don’t plan these sketchbook pages, for the most part, and even if I do, they come out how they come out. One of the prime sources of anxiety in my life is uncertainty. Will things be ok? What did they think? How long will I live? What to eat for dinner? A lot of unknowns and a lot of decisions. But the truth is that most things are uncertain - even the operation of our physical universe is based wholly on uncertainty. So why not roll with it? Relax into it? Why not own it? . . . Uncertainty. Own it. 5” x 5”, neocolor 2 crayons and Posca.
