Went to a talk yesterday at the ICA...James Jean and Tara McPherson, totally sold out. Man he is aight I guess. Whatever. The talk was only half an hour though and I wanted to buy a signed copy of PR3, but he was only selling a teacup and saucer, which I almost bought for like a buck three eighty and I took nothing to sign, which was lame. So I had to cop some Fables and he did his thing in my sketchbook and his hair is mad shiny and long...like Lui Kang, but with paints.

Pencils for 1 of an open series of commissions of dead famous people. I started in pencil but I do wan to paint them expressionist like, but I don't think it'll work so, I'm going to pencil them and then do some acrylic washes and things, maybe a bit of gesso who knows. I'm doing them on Fabriano Artistico because if I'm going to paint or colour it'll take it well. I'm keeping them simple for now because I'm scared to do anything else for now, tight schedule says so. I started with James Dean because he was the coolest one out of all of them and if I was a girl...aw yeah.
