You may bury my body

So my old evil spirit
Can catch a Greyhound bus and ride

There are moments when I want to scream or die. I paint instead.

DO YOU NOW ANY OF THESE ARTISTS (I know who 9 is) ?!!?!?

IF SO, COULD YOU TELL ME/GET THEM TO CONTACT ME?

Their work is being sold on etsy on these cases. 

The third one is mine, and - yes, this does feel rude, if you see what I mean.

Reblogging to spread the word for the fellow artists…

A quick reminder that I’m alive and kicking, if you see what I mean here.

Side note: I’ve got nearly impossible schedule until July, 24th, at the very least. So I do apologize for being a seldom seen kid these days… T_T

Well, since I’m being on hiatus for a while (being half-eaten by everyday routine isn’t fun, but it works for me), I feel like it’s time to share the project I’ve been working on a few weeks ago. A friend of mine, Clare Costa, asked me to develop a cover art for her new detective novel, and I was really excited to do that. Here’s the result: the book is available here.

The funny part was that I didn’t want to use any known reference for the pose, so I had to ask my boss to let me use his hands as reference… and he did, which just proves that full-time office job also contains a great team of people that forgive me for being weirder than average.

Hopefully I’ll return soon with some new art, because I’ve got about nineteen or twenty items on my “to paint” list, and I can’t wait to make those ideas real.)))

Hiatus: in more words than one.

For all you out there: in case you didn’t know - you are too kind and generous.
You know, people accuse me of not having time for them.
Well, they don’t literally accuse me, they just make hints when I decline their offers or explain why I cannot do this or that. They say or write something like, “Oh, that’s OK - it’s just unfortunate that you don’t have time for that”. Some of my friends who I deal with on, um… painting basis are aware of my usual schedule, and I’m insanely grateful for that; they know that when I say that I cannot do something, that doesn’t mean I don’t have time. That means I’ve got no physical possibility to do that (e.g. somebody asks if they could have a print of some of my old fanart in 24 hours, while I moved the files to another HDD which I physically removed from my ‘art PC’ a long while ago, and it is literally impossible to dig it out of my storage on time just because it’s inside one of the boxes on one of the shelves and I have no clue where to start digging).
I’m writing this all for you to remember: you are the sweetest people.
Nobody here accused me of being inattentive or ignorant just because I had no chance to keep my blog updated for a rather long while. For those whom may concern: I’m fine. I’m just half-eaten by lack of sleep and amount of work. And yeah, some art news will follow as soon as I get enough sleep.

Thank you so much, dear friends.
Love,
EO.

For those who know I like interesting faces: here’s the one you should remember. He’s Amir Arison, by the way, remember the name.

For those who know I like a good story about a small character: that’s the one stories can be told about.

For those who know I like weird theories: oh.

Just watch NBC’s “The Blacklist” (in case you haven’t just for the sake of dark plots and James Spader alone). If you did, just… damn! There’s so much potential about this character, starting with his possibly dark side (because how on Earth does one interact with Red Reddington without getting high on adrenaline, or how does one just steal $ 5,000,000 in two minutes without being a PRACTISED expert in hacking, or how does one all at once get calm and respectful despite the second after being threatened with a loaded gun by a notorious murderer?..) and ending with sci-fi ideas, like him being a cyborg or something.

The obvious thing is: YES, I totally love painting people like him.
And I cannot miss the chance to muse on the sci-fi theory, just for the fun of it))

  1. IndieWire: So a few months ago, Titus Welliver told me about how you and he were roommates and attended NYU together...
  2. Clark Gregg: I saw your Tweet! You'll get no good stories from me! [Laughs.]
  3. IndieWire: Aw, c'mon, man!
  4. Clark Gregg: All right, all right! [Laughs.] Okay, so Titus was really fun. He's always been a larger-than-life character. I remember being shocked to learn that he was my age, because he just seemed so much more experienced when I met him in college. He seemed to have some... I don't know, some mysterious paramilitary background! And he was an almost professional darts player, and he would go to this bar called the Kettle of Fish, which was famous because (Jack) Kerouac and all his crew used to hang out there. Titus could be seen there on a first-name basis with all of these crusty bartenders, dominating the dart board and never paying for a drink. We all wanted to be Titus.
  5. IndieWire: I feel like your next script is sitting right in front of you.
  6. Clark Gregg: Really! "Titus: The '80s in New York." I remember he bailed me out. A girl dumped me savagely and kicked me out of her apartment -- which she probably was wise to do --and I had nowhere to go, and Titus took me into his loft and kind of just left me. He was one of the first people I knew who really studied film, and he had a VCR and tapes, and he kind of just sat me down in front of the whole Scorsese and Coppola collections.
