I'm currently suffering from a deadly case of CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME (every artists nightmare, I swear...+ it was because I was working on the stencil for the OTIS T-SHIRT CONTEST 3 hours straight... Cutting patterns into illustration board is not easy :( ) which is effecting my drawing abilities BADLY. It's PAINFUL to draw anything with pens!!
"No Rabu You"
Mixed Media on illustration board

I'm not a fan of Yoshitomo Nara's work, but for this piece, his pouty, angry looking girls became a source of my inspiration.
I also think he's pretty gangsta for being locked up in jail in NYC for 2 days for doodling on a wall.
The topic of my visual marathon is BODY MODIFICATION. This entails piercings, tattoos, scarification, branding, suspension, amputation, and the like.
I started using my Hitec-C pens (amazing for details and thin lines!) and doodling around... This week I'm going to primarily concentrate on random thoughts and blabbering that comes up in my mind...
