Hilda’s Bechdel Test Solution?on September 14, 2015 at 12:01 am
Well folks, some of you may remember me mentioning that things are in a little flux for me right now and unfortunately I will have to take yet another break from the comic. It’s a long story, but I’m kind of living between 2 cities right now and soon I’ll be in a third one for an artist’s residency. I’m not sure if I’ll have everything I need to make comics there, but if I do I’ll get back to it in a few weeks!
Otherwise as promised, here are a few of my oil paintings. These are what I’ve been spending most of my time on. This isn’t all of them, but it’s a good sample! As you can see I’ve been riffing off of the concept of the moon and maybe its not existing… It’s become a weird obsession! Thanks for sticking with me Primate Posse™!
You ARE a stinker!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the paintings!
Yes I am! And as a stinker, I must mention that you could own one of those paintings! If you can pay. 😉 ha ha. Thanks, Mark! I’m always fighting with myself about whether to focus on paintings (and other art) or comics. I think I like a big reason why I don’t focus on comics is that I don’t enjoy drawing small as much as large. Hmmmm…
I had aspirations of being a painter at some point, Chris. I got so enamored with the “painter” lifestyle and thought what a great life it would be to just paint and make a living. I do enjoy cartoons, too and it’s such a different way to express myself. You seem to really enjoy pushing the paint around, that’s for sure. If you can make income with it, go for it!
It would be great to make a living as a painter. But I have a buddy who’s doing very well and it’s high pressure, actually! So it would be just nice to sell enough to make a contribution while my sugar mama brings home the bacon!
I’d love to see your paintings, Mark! You’re a far better cartoonist than me, so I bet you’re a great painter too! 🙂
