Just so you, know my main aim in starting this blog, was to start creating more art, and then to share it with anyone that's interested. I already have a deviantART site for my completed work, which I beg you to explore first, if you're not already familiar with my stuff (http://ryshu.deviantart.com). The particular piece featured here doesn't quite exhibit the high level of quality that I would aspire to exhibit for my opening post, but the point is to showcase my output here, even if it's a little rough or a bit off. Besides I've learned over the years that everyone's tastes are different, and things that don't work for me may, completely intrigue somebody else.
"So Many Birds"
This is a sketch book drawing that I've been working on for a few days on and off. The medium is pencil, marker and black pen on brown paper. There wasn't a big concept here but I wanted to remind myself that when I get down, I need to remember that there's still so many birds. You figure it out from there.
On top of possessing a deep affection for visual art, I'm also a sucker for music. In fact, music is engaged in a very tight race for "My Favorite Thing in the World" with my chihuahua Doby. Sorry Doby, if you happen to be reading this. Anyhow, I'm gonna feature a song for each blog post I make, that I think YOU should go check out, and then buy if you like. If you are unaware, much of today's music can be listened to, in full, for free on MySpace. And just so you know, the song may have everything, or nothing at all to do with the rest of the blog.
Today's feature song:
"Joey" by Concrete Blonde. from the album - "Bloodletting" 1990
There was a time, a long, long while ago that I liked this song. I'm not even sure exactly when that was, but really, it doesn't matter. The truth is, this is just one of those trancedental songs that either works for you real good, or not at all. For me, it's real good.
