So here's the thing that's been gnawing at me, pretty much since you first started posting here. Perfect example in the last pic you posted - that texture you're using on the hills at the horizon. Either it's something tilable, in which case - how the actual fuck do you tile something like that? Or else it's hand drawn,in which case - what the actual fuck, are you even human?

Oh I hadn’t even thought of that! Good interpretation!  :fnord: I just connected the dots between Leary’s riddle and the title of the book “What Does WoMan Want?” (Which this was drawn as the cover for)

Put me out my misery, I need to know?

Oh certainly! And thx for noticing! All the line work patterning is indeed done by hand, it’s borderline pathological tbh, but it certainly spruces up my otherwise middling cartooning  :fnord:

I got my start making mini comix on copy machines in the early 2ks, which were absolutely awful at producing any sort of greytone, so I developed a bunch of pen & ink patterns/textures so I cd keep my forms distinct, and the style just kinda carried over when I made the switch to color & digital.

I toyed around w/ making texture templates & fill patterns, but it doesn’t quite look the same as when it’s developed organically. It’s a long way to go for such a small difference, but I kinda can’t help myself!

Enjoying these very much, Ty!

Merci beaucoup, LuciferX!  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

I think the hand-drawn textures add a lot to the quality and distinctiveness of your work. It's very unique.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

I remember Ellis writing a blog series in part on Jack Kirby's screaming robot head, is this a reference?
Is that why you won't let it see you, why you can't bear the gaze? Because you've done terrible things.
Then there are the transgressions you never even knew you committed, those are the worst because those you can never forget, all you can do is suspect.

Yes indeed! From the "Do Anything" blog series

Quote
I have the head of Jack Kirby in my office.
I built it myself. Which means, this being the late-postmodern 21st Century, I stole it from someone else and then tinkered with it until it became a transformative work. What I actually did was steal the Hanson Robotics-designed android head of Philip K Dick off an airplane, resculpted the front and filled its brain with the work of, interviews with and anecdotes about Jack Kirby…

Also the "Science Fiction Condition" bit comes from Ellis' excellent speech Improving Reality

Quote
"To be a futurist, in pursuit of improving reality, is not to have your face continually turned upstream, waiting for the future to come. To improve reality is to clearly see where you are, and then wonder how to make that better.
 
Act like you live in the Science Fiction Condition. Act like you can do magic and hold séances for the future and build a brightness control for the sky.
 
Act like you live in a place where you could walk into space if you wanted. Think big. And then make it better."

Wow, is that for real? hahahah

I read The Android Head of Phillip K Dick, which documents the creation of the Philip K Dick robot and how its head was stolen / lost during a flight.

I'm sure Ellis is teasing, but that's a great reference.  :p

Oh that's great! I had no idea that bit had any basis in reality :fnord:

I just watched a video of the PKD android talking, fantastically weird!
