You know, it’s ‘sluggish days’ that lack motivation like today that give productive days worth waiting for. It seems like if my computer didn’t magically turn off corrupting a file, then accidently saving over an important file must be around the corner. This weekend did not go in my favor whatsoever. However, I must let it go and say that it is ok.
Coffee is sitting in the kitchen because I know how I work; I must make progress in my checklist for my weekly projects list. If I don’t get what I feel is ‘a good days of work’ done, then sleep with come hard tonight. Unfortunately, my priority is to finish texturing the Cache Project, but that is far from reality. I have however, finished a Henri Matisse style painting of a character I’ve been developing since I left the Zoo. She’s yet given a name, but to me, she’s known as Caricature Character.
Originally a caricature almost created by accident, I managed to draw CC while hustling for a sale on one of the Zoos slow days. She brought me controversy and in return I promise her fame. Orange hair, smoking a beatnick cigarette with a hearted green outfit, the once infamous caricature now holds more of a foreign-esque appealing look. I’ve given CC a mere 4 strands of gray hair, with a goth-like, latte sipping outfit to appear intellectual, artistic, and somewhat mysterious.
Here I present a painting I’ve created of the most updated version of Caricature Character inspired in a Matisse style.
