James Ulmer: Many Faces
You guys like sketchbooks, right?
I used posemaniac poses, a great source of poses by computer models. It also lets you turn the model for different angle perspectives.
Seriously? Amazing resource!
I think 2 and 4 are super-duper important. (And 5, duh.)
Totally applicable to my life, and my new year’s resolution to make a graphic novel this year.
Steve Lambert: Drawings for 3 Rooms in Your Home #1
Whenever asked, “How long did it take you to make this?” I always respond, “My whole life up to that moment.” And it’s true.
I never liked the idea that someone could just buy my work. I develop ideas forever, then struggle with finding a way to execute them that makes sense, often traversing through several iterations. And then someone writes a check and that’s the end. What?
I work too hard on this stuff. Simply paying for it and hanging it on a wall is too easy. I don’t want anything I do becoming another inanimate object that decorates someone’s home. I want more. I want ramifications!
So I came up with this. This feels more like a real transaction. Yes, you get to own something I made, but you also accept some responsibility. Put this on your wall and you have to be more honest as a result. It’s more than just an image, it becomes a point of interaction with everyone who comes into your home. It’s simple ink on paper, but wherever it hangs, there’re social implications.
It’s not for everyone.
