Another busy week in the land of the man with no plan and by the looks of things here I'll be winging it again, because I can.
If I counted properly after losing count several times but not giving up, this could potentially be post number seventy-nine coming out of me since this place became the place of mine.
That is not an important detail.
It's just a thumbnail. New though! So That makes it cool.
I don't really want to talk about That though.
Awhile ago it was winter here in the Canada. I arrived back on the scene feeling all good about getting into this @NoNamesLeftToUse The Writer/Artist Himself gig again.
Published an article on December 23 of last year after some encouraging words and a little push to do so by some people that care.
Somewhere in all that humorous mess of a ramble I mentioned upgrading some hardware meant to power some upgraded software that allows me to be The Artist Himself.
By now I'm certain at least ten of you fancy folks out there noticed I have a unique style.
Even the haters probably noticed that thumbnail in the feed and thought, "Oh fuck. There's that asshole again trying to be all cool with a word like That."
Can see me coming from a mile away and it's been that way since the day I showed up just to say, "Hey. This is how it's going to be, okay?"
I've been having trouble adjusting.
Just by looking at that piece I'm sure you're thinking, "WTF Nonames? That doesn't look anything like what you'd normally be doing."
I can explain!
I called that one: Mouse Stash
I'm sure just by looking at it once more, you can now see why. I didn't want to straight up call it a moustache but once you see it, you can't unsee it.
I didn't even mean to do that. To be truthful I was simply relearning how to use my software after upgrading which led to the unfortunate event of once again losing several years worth of brush settings and tweaks that help make up my unique style.
Once I noticed what I did though I was all like, "Fuck it. I'm in charge. That's art. Next!"
See the cute dolphin?
Due to recent events and some hypersensitivity running wild which led to some dude thinking he could cancel me by being a thief and a liar, I've decided to take some of the steps required to make my artwork pleasurable to all viewers at any given moment; so it doesn't happen again.
That piece is titled: Some Things Never Change
Can you already tell I've been working hard this week?
Making up for lost time I suppose. Still have two more to show you but since there's a chance I've already frightened a few people, I suppose now would be a good time to mention the survival food and supplements I'm selling so that you can survive the end of the world with me.
I don't plan on turning into one of those talking heads that makes reading news articles seem like the most exciting thing that ever happened to humanity. If it was my mission to inject fabricated chaos into this world to coincide with a bit of brainwashing, I'd simply show you this next image I produced:
Then say, "They've landed!"
But I'd much rather provide humanity with the potential of smiles and cool stuff to look at.
I named that one: Always on the Back of Your Mind
I'm sure several people noticed the humanoid appearance with a dash of potential alien in side profile form looking off to the right.
Those not familiar with my work and style would probably overlook the one facing the left. That one is on the back of the mind. Or is it the front?
That's called spin and I just felt like writing this portion to help tie everything together so it doesn't appear as if I'm only sitting here rambling about nothing.
Everything is spun nowadays and the world seems so dizzy. That is, of course, not the case, when one pays attention to the actual people of this planet. They're a lot different than these modern day products of news media.
I've always admired the people that don't come equipped with a script. Could never understand why so many choose to waste what they call "freedom of speech" on being a mouthpiece for the mainstream narrative or alternative spin.
The real people of this planet have so much more to say and I feel so damn fortunate to be able to slap this next image down:
Viewed all over the world.
In an instant.
I called that piece: Looking Forward
It's far more complex than the previous four I've shown off today. Several things are going on there; but I'm not sure I want to spoil it with an explanation.
I've included some optical illusions, again. For instance, looking at it from a distance, you might see someone wearing a colorful hood.
Another way to look is if you're inside of a dark cave, looking out and seeing the world.
It can also represent a fireball streaking across the night sky. Duck and cover, perhaps?
There's more, of course. Like so many other artworks I've produced over the years, the viewing experience will be unique to each individual.
Unrelated random sidenote:
For several years I would produce art, set it down here, and talk about other things; always thinking overly explaining would ruin the experience. Allowing room for the comment section to fill in the blanks.
I still feel that way but after watching how one individual can ruin and/or try to ruin so many lives by simply not being able to grasp the world around them...
Things may have changed.
I honestly did not think the world could produce something so careless/reckless. Learned a lot and I'm still blown away. Don't even know what to say, so...
