Managed to carve out some time to fiddle around at the art desk today. I’m rusty as hell, but still had some fun.

<p>“And now we are all scattered; and for many a long day lone-liness will sit over our roofs with brooding wings.

All line-work was originally done in graphite on paper, with digital inks and colors. </p><p>Hope ya’ll enjoy.</p><p><b>CEL </b></p>

“Big man, pig man
Ha, ha, charade you are”

Quick warm up sketch this morning while working on other projects. When doing portraiture, I find it’s often difficult to capture the subject as I see them, with my eyes, rather than how I view them, in my mind. In this case, I feel I’ve accurately captured the essence of the man, while keeping my own personal beliefs and philosophies at bay, ensuring a true and honest representation of the subject, his character, and persona.

Water soluble pastel & graphite on paper.

Never Spoken

The adrift and awakened mind
Restlessly surging forward into endless ether
In the nebulous grey, uncertainty reigns
And truth is subservient to the weighted voices
Which curdle and drone of prospects and profits and progress but reek positively of self-service and feverish greedy grabbing of land
This unbearable constant questioning with so little to show and so very little to ask
This miming of shape and form and familiar illusions to typecast and provide belonging
But never ownership for the future
And never hope, for many
As we bore more deeply into the entrenched to discover only what was written on the walls by those before us
But never looking upward, outward, inward for the truths known to each other
Never spoken

Words for the day by me, 2016.

Fresh Paint: PJ Harvey

Posted by Evan LaVere on Saturday, October 8, 2011 Under: Paintings
Well, here it is. Another Icon piece added to the pile. PJ Harvey, for those unawares.

I like to imagine that a century from now, an internet archeologist may manage to rifle past all the forums, mass media trailers, and trolling, and for a brief moment glimpse at my work and think, "Hey, this doesn't suck." Then, distracted by a sploosh from the depths of his bowels as a result of his quasi-space age futuristic Venti NonFat Mocha, he will move along.
