the heavy, heavy weight of an invisible anxiety
I got illustration attitude via Flickr, for doing this. I guess I am supposed to create something new with the illustration Friday topic in mind. I can't attribute the topic to something I have already done. I can't break the rules, and there are oh so many rules. I have never been good with rules, organization, or tags. Tags.....are stupid. As if a title and description isn't enough, we need more vocabulary. Oh, and the image has to be relevant to the topic by their standards, not mine.
I guess illustrators and artists are two totally different breeds. If I can't get through the eighteen plus projects currently rolling around in my head and on my desk, how I am going to do a piece of work revolving around one word, in only a few days?
Maybe an illustrator can do that, maybe I could do that in illustrator? Maybe I'm not an illustrator, and all of these illustrations I have done are just drawings. I could care less.
The illustration Friday topics are always so fucking cheesy and G-rated! Garden, plain, heavy, leap, soar, stitch, blanket. Illustration Friday is a wet-dream for unambitious graphic designers and illustrators of mediocre children's books.
If they ever decided to have grown up topics I would participate more often. These are several topics that would make it much easier for me to participate:
woman in trouble
I need to start my own subversive illustration Friday for grownup's with bad thoughts and horrible habits.
So, if you're reading this. I have used illustration Friday, broke the rules, and now I admit this is a meek attempt at luring people to my blog.
Let the hatin' begin, or the complete silence, perhaps.
