cracked out junk food.

I was having a homework party with my friend Caitlin tonight and instead of doing what I was supposed to be doing. I drew this thing, which started out tangentially related to this hamburger clock I am programming, but ended up being something frightful.

As an aaaaaartist, sometimes your work is outside of your control and it's meaning is something even you cannot grasp ... I know...BARF. Anyway, what I think is happening is that the pickle is smoking something illicit. It must be cold because he is wearing a beanie. The hot dog just took a bite out of a corn dog and is horrified to learn that corn dogs are just hot dogs on a stick wrapped in a cornbread-ish substance. Which reminds me of this podcast I heard recently that claimed that certain members of the Donner Party towards the end had the choice between eating wild dogs or fresh corpses and chose the latter because they preferred the taste. Yeah, I am not going to confirm that fact. I am just going to blindly spread it.

As you can see. I really need to use my time more wisely. But if you are looking for comics that are smart, funny, sweet, and a little fucked up, you should check out Hecka Drawings. They are fantastic and more people know about it.

Emails from a Mort

I love my dad. His name is Mort. He is like no other person. I am not being trite or hyperbolic. You really just need to meet him. He is fond of lots of things, like collecting Homies, writing books about what nomads like to wear, and finding the right pocket square to complement his cardigans. One of his favorite hobbies is emailing his friends and family pictures of things that he takes on his Blackberry. It is closest thing you can get to seeing into someone else's brain. Today I decided to blog all the pictures that he sends me today. He is remodeling his house and finding some weird shit, especially in my childhood bedroom. I will update through out the day.

subject: I miss you!

my response: "is that my comforter?"

My response: "come back to brooklyn and we can go say hi to her! "

If you really want an explanation for this....I will give it.

Terrible Ogre!

Monday afternoon I was scanning some sketches and come across these things in the front of my sketchbook. I drew them last summer when I was in Portland. They are of my friend Rachel, who is very pretty in real life and I am very fond of her. For some reason, every drawing I made just got less and less flattering. SORRY! I asked her permission to share these with you and she was gracious and gave her blessing.

I drew this one in the Planned Parenthood. It seemed like a Portland thing to do... sketching while watching people get free condoms.

So I tried again. This time over iced lattes and croissants on Division st. She just looks sad...

To be fair, I was drunk on a very strong Bloody Mary when I drew this. Yeah.

Just to prove that she isn't a hideous beast. Here is a portrait I did of her in 2008.
