drawing of the day - " deck of cards "


rodecker_transform, originally uploaded by prodecker.

I have been recently trying to consolidate my belongings. I want to have less and have it organized. It has been a 4-year process thus far, but I am finally making some progress (even though I never ever thought it would take over 4-years!)

Anyway, because of my "digging deep" into forgotten realms of Paul, I am now finding drawings (here and there) that were misplaced by my disorganization syndrome.

This drawing is one of those lost works that I am speaking of.

It comes from a much bigger piece. I decided to cut this section out because I thought it was out of place in regards to the rest of the work.

Back in my -Undergrad and Grad- days I would deconstruct and reconstruct my drawings by cutting them up and taping them back together (in different formations / sometimes with different drawings / etc). I did this for many reasons that I will not get into now. But one the main reasons for this -deconstruct/reconstruct- was to keep my art/drawings from ending.

I do not start a drawing to finish it. Instead, I start a drawing to never finish it. Both the "finish" and the "never finish" are difficult to achieve, and one is not better than the other. Currently, I am just focused on learning how to keep a drawing from finishing.

The materials used in this drawing: Rapidograph (.20 Technical pen), Watercolor, Sharpies, Arches watercolor paper.

Although I do not think it is my greatest drawing ever, I do like how it looks like a "card" of some sort. I remember being inspired by this drawing into thinking about creating my own personal set of "Cards of Paul", Or a faux tarot deck or "Art poker cards", or something like that.

I find the upper-right hand corner of this drawing perfect some kind of element that would help push this "card" idea. So you see, this drawing has really only just begun!

The interesting thing about your art blog is how we get a taste of your philosophy and approach to art along with the art itself.

I find the drawing interesting, and you're right - it really can pass for a card. The colors blend quite smoothly into each other as well. It's kind of hard to say anything else about it, since it's a part of a bigger whole; the perspective is really nice, though the feet are strangely placed and kinda don't line up together, but that's alright. Interesting piece.
Well I like to be a triple threat!...haha

No seriously, I appreciate your thoughts in this regard. I tend to write (like I speak) so it's a very conversational writing syle. Thus it would make sense that you noticed what you did, because that is how I tend to communicate with people.

I find the drawing interesting in how it is very different from what I have been doing for quite awhile. I'd like to do a series of drawings about this drawings scale. However, at this point, it would be awhile before I could get to it.

It's always a matter of time.

Thanks for your comment on my post.
