Marvin lay on my desk, and all i had within arm's reach was a piece of Xerox paper to draw him on. Xerox paper is propably the worst thing to try watercolor on -- so i did. Pen, watercolor, ink, 10 minutes, which made the print in the back bleed through. Anyway, it's a quick Marvin.
Maybe because i feel as though the energy has been sucked out of me now that this school year is over, or maybe because i saw a beautiful Irish movie (John Carney's Once) about a "broken hearted hoover fixer sucker guy" making music, or probably because of Andrea Joseph's drawing, i felt like drawing my vacuum cleaner tonight.
Saw Le Pen's face in the news today. Something happened in France between April 2002 and now which made it impossible for him to be in the run-off of the presidential election. I wanted to add some blue, white and red to this but thought better of it -- i am tired of seeing the colors of the French flag associated with the National Front party. Pen in Moleskine.
