Took things easy today - art-wise, anyway. Partly due to the fact that I've been working since 3, partly due to this cold I've been fighting for almost a week, so I can't get out of bed until about noon.
So basically that means I haven't been multitasking art projects for myself (my daily post, larger art works, and my comic). As much as 'taking it easy' sounds fine, in my head I just keep thinking I need to continue working and I'm falling behind.
Not enough hours in the day really.
Need to kick this cold first though.

Sincerely Yours: Green
At huSH Art you can find a comparison of this with an old self portrait of mine.

So I spent my morning at a funeral.
This is an image of my cousin looking down at the grave of his twin daughters. He and his wife had been trying for a long time to get pregnant, they did, and then they lost the them six months in.
I don't know what the ethics of taking a photograph at a funeral is, but I saw this moment and decided I wanted to draw it. I felt rude taking the photo, which I guess I was.
I suppose people want to only remember the good times, no one wants photographs reminding them of the hard things they had to go through. Except, I find that this would be something I'd want to remember. I'd want to remember that for one brief hour, I was a parent to two little girls, as much as it hurt to be so. And from what I saw, there was a lot of hurt.
My dad used to tell me the worst thing a parent can go through is burying their children. I don't believe he was wrong.

Have a lot more to mention today than usual.
1 - www.hushart.com
2 - With little build up, but hopefully much follow through. Today is the first day of Daily Drawing. I'll be drawing something and posting every day, ideally for a year, hopefully at least through the summer, realistically... well, who knows.
Tell your friends.
3 - This image specifically, I worked on here and there this past week. I finished it today just in time to post it as the first image. I think this band is amazing and I had the pleasure of seeing them live not long ago, so I was inspired to do a little free form painting of them. They're called Manchester Orchestra, whom you should check out before you even finish this sentence.
Wow, you fail.
P.S. Most of the following drawings definitely won't be this finished.
