Holy Shit, My Desk…

What the hell have I been doing?

I spent my precious writing time tonight designing some new logos. I like the one in the middle.

 

 

The Green Man, art, and nature…

one of the characters i’m working on is an exploration of the mythologies and imagery surrounding The Green Man archetype…

tonight, i was astounded by the work of Andy Goldsworthy while watching the 2001documentary Rivers and Tides…

if you’re not already familiar, he uses materials existing on location to create wondrous outdoor installations…his work strikes me as an embodiment of the Green Man ethos…a beautiful expression of the joy and folly of life in the face of immutable forces…

desparately seeking…inspiration…

it’s 3:45…i’m sitting at my desk drinking a beer and trying to find a way to end my day on a good note… i woke up this morning…yesterday morning…in a poor mood…i had to go to work on what was supposed to be my day off…strike one…

next, i find out that the one radio station that made me excited to turn on the radio has folded and become…ugh, how to describe this without promoting it in any way…it’s now a station who’s airtime is bought and paid for, in its entirety by a major local strip club…so there are no commercials, just sad little teases to promote the club…and the name…well, they’ve named themselves after the most prominant feature on the on the show club dance floor…i’ll let you figure it out…the music is not all bad…just mostly bad…it’s exactly what you would expect to hear in a strip club…just subtract the writhing naked flesh and the overpriced drinks and you can make the inside of your car as soulless and depressing as closing time on a slow night…strike two…

have you ever worked for someone who wants to impress you how much smarter they are than you, but they’re actually not…strike three…

so here i am, trying to prevent my day from being an entire waste…let’s try this…


Wind und Welle by Franz von Stuck…another pre WWII German painter has captured my imagination…here, it seems Stuck has personified the interplay between wind and the sea and turned it into something beyond wonderful…

yes, that’ll do…
