    Run to the Hills > art'ing : FMF

    hi.

    Joined and figured I'd start a sketchbook.

    Most of my work is 2D mixed media: markers, spray paint, latex, acrylic, etc.
    Influences include: Caravaggio, Arthur Rackham, Gil Elvgren, Norman Rockwell, Kerry James Marshall, Donato Giancola, Larry Elmore, Banksy, math rock, cut n' paste punk flyers, graffiti, bourbon/rye...

    a Travis Millard quote:

    "Making art is a really lonely process. You spend alot of time by yourself, hunched over a desk. It's alot of solitary time and it can be a bit of a head trip.... I would sometimes get depressed and not know what I was going to do next.

    "Mel [note: Mel Kadel; artist / Travis's girlfriend] is a real stabilizer for me, keeping my head in a good place. She's good at saying, 'Let's take a walk for 10 minutes' - whereas if she didnt, I probably wouldnt take a walk for a week. We walk, and I come back invigorated"

    clipped quote in muh sketchbook:

    Glenn E. Friedman...

    "All of a sudden I'm looking at magazines and seeing photos that are out of focus, not composed, as if you just don't give a shit...
    Don't just capture the moment; you have to capture it in a way that's respected. Just like you do with art, you're interpreting things and speaking to people, but you're doing it articulately, you're doing it as a true master. That's the kind of art I respect, people who respect their own forms.

    You know Larry Clark, Terry Richardson, that aesthetic? It's zero. It's nothing, it's worthless. It tears down everything that every great photographer has tried to build.
    "

    I love Glenn's aesthetic and that he has the balls to actually give a clear and honest opinion.

    I like how you bring in cut paper to your artwork. ^_^

    I paste quotes I come across and like into my sketchbooks, too.

    related to the "low-brow / pop-surrealism" type art...

    "I think I was part of the second wave. Now we're into the third and fourth waves, and the thing has gotten really big, with lots of people now embracing it and collecting this kind of work. My biggest problem with the 'movement' now is that a lot of the work seems very derivative. People who are biting established styles are becoming successful very quickly. I think things have gotten a little watered down."

    -Eric White, 01/2008
