The Astro Base can get filthy. by Doc-Hammer The Astro Base can get filthy. by Doc-Hammer
My other desk... The two easels behind the desk I posted before.

Things to be disgusted/amused by:
1. Free standing ashtray. That is smoking-related furniture people. And that is what I call "dedication".
2. The fact that I only use the ashtray some of the time. Look at the floor.
3. Yes, that is a Krazy Glue package down there.
4. 1967 Les Paul Custom.
5. The gray disk being cut off at the top of the screen is a pop-filter for a microphone. Probably still set up from a last minute Venture Bros. dialogue read.
6. There is an awl jammed into the left easel to stop it from swaying.
7. My favorite: the the ashtray from my other desktop picture is now broken on the floor. look between the free-standing-ashtray and the stool for one half of it.

It's not unlike reading a Highlights magazine in so much waiting room. What can you find?

Do you stretch your own canvases or are they hardboard with back supports?
It is great to see a skilled traditional painter these days.

My family and myself respect people who have passion and dedication towards smoking.
No Joke! My uncles coffee table ,big box of machine made ciggys. Offered out like so much Hard Candy to whoever wanders through.
Smoking is encouraged and nonsmokers are made to go outside at times if they complain. I usually get him ashtrays for x-mas.
I'm sure with your success and millions of celebrity friends you now have it doesn't look this way anymore (sadly).
I would clean ASTRO Base! anytime so long as I'm allowed to listen to as much Morrissey as I need at that given time.
Or Alison Moyet, solo.

That stool looks awfully uncomfortable. Doesn't it hurt your bum? Or is the pain relevant to art? Some artists are masochists like that, though, I'd be a bit surprised if you were one. Wouldn't be surprised if the Monarch was one, though.

I don't sit on it that much. I paint standing up for the most part. That stool ends up being a makeshift table.

seeing your work, and knowing you probably do it recreationally makes me want to throw in the towel with my work, which is pretty much trash in contrast.

oh well.

i think my trash is all i've got.

:icondoc-hammer:
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2009
Oh no, I don't do this recreationally. Yes, I also write, make music, and other stuff... But painting is not a hobby. I have dedicated many years of very intense study and thought into painting. It is absolutely central to my being. ya gotta trust me, I don't just "Toss these things off to relax." Painting is anything but relaxing to me. I care way too much about it for it to be a pleasant experience. It's gut wrenching...

supah-com Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2009
Phew!!!

I'm extremely relieved to know that.
Because your work - it's excellent - like master level excellent (from what I have seen).

I had two friends in art school, both of which were amazing painters. One left painting to pursue film and ended up as a tv camera man. The second ended up teaching yoga in korea.

I always felt a bit let down that they left painting behind. They were awesomely good. I guess people find their own way into this or out of that. But for me, I just always held my stuff as the best of what I can do - and have felt kinda low about myself when I'm doing anything else creative (design/knitting/etc.).

Ading Women? Agility of Ma? What do those posters say? That tool box looks like it's been there for ages, and lastly, what is that violet collar, belt, strap thing?

I feel like I'm violating you, it feels creepy, but kind of right.

:icondoc-hammer:
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2009
That says "The Fragility of Man", and it's from a huge poster I created that has How-To instructions for sewing a pocket onto your abdomen. The other one says "Trading Women", it was a poster I made for the documentary of the same name. The toolbox is a paint box. It's beyond filthy, mainly with it's contents all smeared on its exterior. And the blue strap is what the US postal service uses to lash things together. I have a friend that's a postman... He never rings twice, by the way. Anything else?

That took me forever to figure out that you meant the right "side", not the right "corner". I'm looking in ever corner for florescent lights as if they were Waldo... But I see what you were referring to now. And you are partially correct. Those are tubes that once contained florescent bulbs, now being repurposed as poster tubes... Good eye!

The little one is a kind of a study. It's like a paint get-to-know-you. Helps me solidify coloring and someone's unique facial anatomy. Then I do a larger one, and use what I have learned. The little one is always worked to full completion. So it's not a sketch. It really is just a small painting done before a larger one of the same subject.

Oh my, I've seen this place on the venture bros. special features! :D

I love that free-stander, it makes me feel all fuzzy inside...I dunno why, it looks so nostalgic and ancient, frozen in time perhaps, a testament to the addiction that envelops millions and kills them just the same.
Its friggin beautiful.

I also spy a guitar.
Do you play?

Heh, speedsuits. Oh my, too funny.
