Sick day drawings while ~my man~ is out of town.

HEY GUYS! anyone remember my FACES I HAVE KISSED project that i began last month? well i do. here are a few more of them that i have been working on. i’m experimenting with using handwritten text (my preferred method) instead of typed text for my ~dirty little secret~ section. it might work better, i guess?
also i am pretty sure i have some followers who are also college buddies that know these faces and oh no i wonder if people can recognize these dudes yeti have 3 more nasty dude-faces to go before i try to turn this into a book for people to buy and use to take a good long look at my personal life. i’m kind of debating adding more, though. so far i’m only including faces i have kissed more than once and that i kinda liked or whatever. i’m not sure if that’s unnecessarily discriminatory. maybe it would be interesting to mix in faces of people who i kissed casually (drunkenly), some of whom i don’t even remember well. i guess i’d have fewer anecdotes that way. but they’re still faces i’ve kissed for some reason, right?

i stayed up unnecessarily late last night to make these things. i have one glass of wine and i start channeling PostSecret, i guess.

weddings are weird, facebook is weird, and i am especially weird for dwelling on my courtesy messages for so long. this is based on ~real events~ where i sat, began typing, and immediately backspaced for about ten minutes trying to say “best wishes” to a new bride. (after the first one, i couldn’t even try again, and just shamefully examined the next several brides’ photos.)
'best wishes' or 'congratulations' (sorry, emily) feels like a flat thing to say, but all my further thoughts on the matter are kind of unsharable. if there's no way to be cheeky (and weddings don't exactly invite cheekiness), facebook is useless to me. why can't i just give newlyweds a $15 iTunes gift card to show them i care, facebook?

maybe this gets easier closer to thirty. i stayed up unnecessarily late last night to make these things. i have one glass of wine and i start channeling PostSecret, i guess.

and dadplants part 2! i thought this one was lovely without color. i’ve just been throwing these physically-inked pages into Photoshop and fartin’ around, coloring with my mouse (which feels so neanderthal now that i have a tablet). it works sometimes, i suppose.

Dadplants part 1! More stuff from the plant diary. I went all coloring book on this one. it is garish but joyful.

i’m keeping a little plant diary this summer! here are the first two pages of Very Important Plants from childhood onward. these two pages feature plants i associate with my sister Armida and me. (i hope my notes are legible!)i never really reflected on the importance i assign to plants and knowing their names - i have a fondness for them that is old and comforting and still very alive. i didn’t realize not every kid liked to flip through field guides to trees and insects and memorize leaf shapes, but lately i’m finding a little point of pride in knowing the different parts of the landscape— and a curiosity to learn even more. i’m keeping a little plant diary this summer! here are the first two pages of Very Important Plants from childhood onward. these two pages feature plants i associate with my sister Armida and me.

so! i’ve begun a portrait project concerning all the people i’ve kissed, ever. it’s a weird exercise in looking with scrutiny at relationships i’ve mostly forgotten about (or even tried to forget), in gaining objectivity towards faces i found attractive at one time, and, incidentally, in remembering how good, bad, and somehow significant each person has been and continues to be.plus, i mean, it’s weird to look at all of ‘em lined up like this.

so here we go. i’m going in chronological order. i will probably upload another 3 (?) photosets, and then hopefully turn this into a little book?the biggest thing i’m trying to decide upon is the caption for each person. i think i want to keep the faces anonymous, and i kind of like the series of “fun facts.” i also considered including a quote from the first time I kissed these faces, although some quotes are far better than others. idk. do the portraits carry enough weight without any commentary?? so! i’ve begun a portrait project concerning all the people i’ve kissed, ever. it’s a weird exercise in looking with scrutiny at relationships i’ve mostly forgotten about (or even tried to forget), in gaining objectivity towards faces i found attractive at one time, and, incidentally, in remembering how good, bad, and somehow significant each person has been and continues to be.plus, i mean, it’s weird to look at all of ‘em lined up like this.

This is how I feel writing a cover letter for an illustration job.
