Another one

I have nothing to say.
This is quick sketch I did tonight, no particular reason, and pretty generic.
I am amazed at the fact that I actually do bits almost every day, and regardless of the quality, I think it is a positive sign.
I hope I pick up, because this is fun.

Cheers to all,

PS, It just felt as this is not enough art to justify a post, so I am adding a quick Captain America Parody sketch I did at lunchtime today

Time waster

No rant this time.
Just a quick paint.
It is one of those that start enthusiastically, but end up quite bad.
It was inspired by that old story about simple little rose opening woman's heart.
Rose, off course, being a metaphor for diamonds, cars expensive jewelry, cash gifts, hours of begging, making a tool of oneself etc

Eh, the memories...

I hope the art is not too disappointing and some of you will still come back for more, once my skill returns in any shape or form.

Coming of Age

Reading my previous rumbling, I have realized that to some people it could be somewhat offensive.
Since some of those people might be people I respect and like very much I would like to apologize if I may have offended them. If I only could, I would remove every word but it is not to be.
I also realized that some people might take seriously what I say, even though it is said with that east European, Borat-esque accent everyone loves and laughs at. Even people at my work often mock my way of words. And we all laugh, and I keep on swallowing the rage and making black lists at home for that special moment which may never come.
Ah, if you could only hear me in person.
Anyhow, please, NevER take me seriously on this here forum, or even in life.
*Excluded is the situation when I may start clutching my chest and, through my -quickly turning blue- lips, using the last ounces of my strength, start whispering those very important words:" Please.. someone call the ambulance..."
Then, please, do not laugh and do not repeat my words with that thick accent, just call the fucking Ambulance as I might be having a heart attack!
And now to the title of my post.
My son had his 18th birthday about a month ago (fuck, I am old!), got his provisional driver's license, and tomorrow it is his graduation, all night party.
it would be all sweet, and not much to do with me, if he did not come to me tonight at 11 pm and ask me to give him a haircut.
Many years ago I have purchased some cheap clippers and in a mix of unfulfilled childhood dreams of becoming a village barber and my tight ass penny pinching personality, started giving my children haircuts.
Many years and many failed attempts later, I am still as bad at cutting hair as I was that first time when I sat my child on a chair in the bathroom.
Long story short- he is not talking to me right now, and a wise advice to you all: bald patch can not be fixed by trying to disguise it as a cool, star shaped head ornament nor can it be offset by trying to do a similar, poorly judged and a few centimeters offset bald patch on the other side of the head.
But, the hair will grow, harsh words will be forgotten and all will be as it was before :)

And now the art. I did these 2 tonight, even though I was supposed to do something else (sorry Antonio, My friend).
One of them I like, the other I hate. Guess which is which.

Cheers to you all,

First post in November

And they Call it "Mo-vember" A month in which men grow mustache to raise awareness of prostate cancer.
"Raising awareness" is this awesome thing people do when they feel there's problem they can not do anything about. They prance arround and look silly for a period of time and then they say to themselves: I did a great job, everyone is aware now!
Nothing is fixed, nothing is better, but everyone is aware!
And it is the first fucking thing that comes to my mind when I see upper lip facial hair on some dude: fuck, there's this part of your body you can get cancer in. Much like most other parts of your body you can get cancer in.
And most guys choose to go with that handle bar mustache, unfortunately also commonly known as "cocksucker" mustache.
There's usually only 3 reasons for someone to grow such facial hair:
1- you are retired porn industry star
2-you like to suck on penis
3-you are really, really tough guy, so tough that no one dares to relate you to reason number 2

But come November, confusion ensues. Normal people start growing infamous facial hairdos.
You do not know what to think any more. You think there's either vintage porn convention in town, a gay festival is about to start, or the whole city got conquered by some biker gang.

I think it is just that people like to get silly, but are a bit shy about it. And then someone comes up with some awareness cause and everyone starts using it as an excuse to do what they always dreamed about but never dared to try (I mean growing mustache, not sucking on stuff).
The one awareness initiative I could consider joining is the one where people cut a hole in the crotch area of their pants and walk around with their left testicle exposed. It could be to raise awareness of boldness, or some sort of small, near extinct reptiles or female body hair, I do not care what awareness it is raising, as long as it involves testicle exposure, I am in.

Anyhow, I think I have overloaded on sugar. You see, We have this water cooler in the house, and it has a 15 liter bottle on top and we re-fill it every week. But no one remembered to do it today. I can not drink tap water, plumbing in our house is 25 years old and tap water smells like something crawled in the pipe and died.
And it is really hot today. So I found this old 2 liter bottle of Fanta in the fridge, with most of the bubbles long gone, and have drunk most of it, with the intention to finish the rest once I am done with this post. And it is making me feel weird.
Anyhow, before I offend someone, I am chucking in some lame rough and quick sketches, done mostly on the train and in breef breaks at work. I am working on some nicer stuff I hope to share soon.

Cheers to all,
