I’ve been listening to Daniel Johnston the last few days and watched the documentary on him. One thing I noticed was how Johnston’s influence on rock bands and visual artists, the independent and low-fi artists, is all around. But I also wasn’t prepared for how his music gut punches you right in the feels. I knew some of his songs but still, I think Johnston can & will make pretty much anyone cry. Anyway this is my tribute to this absolute legend.

a rework of a drawing from last year. I've spent a lot of time trying to make pictures from muscle memory, but now I'm re-doing some old pictures. I like the dark shadows and the diagonal motion in this one, and the circular light area around the figure. The darker the shadows, the brighter the lights appear
how to create art? was there ever a more anguished question, seemingly with no answer? well maybe just put fish in an unusual setting idk
I've been into synths lately, I must have watched a million videos, read dozens of reviews, lists, etc. I think I found 'the one' a Prophet Rev 2.
it can be difficult to find the element that makes a picture come together. subject matter alone isn't always enough, I must find a manner of approaching it, a new color, a new material, or something which I find out in the process.
