The Artistic Brainworm

...is one that absolutely -refuses- to allow you to go to sleep until you've sketched that tantalizingly fascinating pose on the PoseMania site, and done a chibi (super deformed Japanese overly cute style of drawing) caricature of Whisper in the Deep Shadows.

And it's 4am on a workday.

I really, really shouldn't encourage my mind to do that but over the years I've gotten accustomed, to paraphrase part of My Fair Lady.

That being said, since my brain isn't listening to me when I demand that it give me the rest of the two new songs I'm writing --wait, what am I talking about, my brain never listens to me -regardless-. This is going to worry me because June 30th, apparently there's a singer-songwriter recital and I'm going to be one of the singer-songwriters featured - just got asked this morning if I was interested.

So like a total numbskull I said SURE I am! Let me know! 1st of June Choral Festival performance, 11th August Acapella Festival competition, and Jakarta practices not withstanding...

La dee dum dum da. I'm a masochist, I am. I have absolute confirmation of that now.

While I beat my brain into some form of failed submission, here's this (very early) morning's work:


Study for Oracle kneeling, and if she looks like she's floating, she may very well be...


Random Pose of the Day on PoseMania. A lot shorter timewise than the above, which was about 15 minutes (and that's too long.) This was 5 or so, even with pencil outlines. Maybe a little less even!
