“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

"HAVE FAITH..."_sketches


Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady, you know how I am
You know I can't let you slide through my hands

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you've decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom, but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let's do some living before we die

Wild horses couldn't drag me away

KAYAK_sketch


Follow me into the desert as thirsty as you are.
Crack a smile and cut your mouth and drown in alcohol.
‘Cause down below the truth is lying beneath the riverbed.
So quench yourself and drink the water that flows below her head.

CRASH_update


Heart crash. Hard drive crash. Personal life crash. Inner circle crash. Mental stability crash. Too many crashes this month, man. Too f*cking many.

My apologies for the lackluster frequency of updates. There are drawings on my drafting table, but none of them are fit nor allowed for upload - it's all part of a body of work that I'll end up talking about here later on. But for now those images are in the vault.


Until then, here are some rough sketches that never made it to the ink stage. I know, I know - they're really weak considering it's been a while since the last update (almost a month now? Yikes!). Again, my apologies, folks; things just keep getting in the way, yeah? Anyway, they're all on loose leaf paper because I can't maintain a sketchbook to save my life.

Also, I think this will be it for this year by way of new stuff. I've got to repair some of those crashes that I mentioned above and that's just going to take all of my time and effort. Ugh. So just in case we don't get to see each other before then - Happy Holidays, everyone. And have a very safe and glorious New Year.
