Before and Laughter




March 15, 2007

So I'm living in the bedroom from my high school days. Paper wasn't enough for me, so I took a black marker and paint to my bedroom walls, splashing poems and quotes and cartoons and scenes from the Bible all over the place. The walls have since been painted over with white house paint, but you can faintly see what was there. It's like a cloud of fog over my high school creations...


I'm liking watercolours more and more since I've finished "the Blizzard of Oz". I've messed around with them a little bit in the past and have a few plans for future projects using watercolours. Below is a watercolour painting on canvas that I painted for Dad.


Also in high school I got into some work by Jean Michel Basquiat. A year or two ago I painted these portraits of the artist at work.

DOOOOD! you have the coolest mom. She lets you draw on the walls? All my mom let me do was let me wear my spiderman costume to the store. I had no idea what a ninja you are.

I wish I would have taken more photos. There was so much on the ceiling and in the closet and on my bookcases and behind the bed...
Mom didn't know what I was doing until it was too late.
