Maybe You can Owe Me



For the third exercise, I listened to "Maybe You Can Owe Me" by Architecture in Helsinki. If you do nothing else with your life today - go and download this song of of iTunes. It is simply awesome. I thought it might be fun to look for one object in the mess of scribbles - and I was kind of hungry at the time. Skipped breakfast today, and toast came to mind. This song drifted off at the end, and it had me drawing much lighter, looser connected lines. It was a pleasant ride.

Oh man! Adulterous aliens and breakfast breads! This was a pure treat!! It's fascinating that your eyes-closed-shut drawings are all so similiar in style. Very cool and the color themes really add to these as well.

The purple bread is a great theme. I envy you guys that can see things in your scribbles. I literally say at my desk for an hour or so looking at all my doodles and turning the pages all different ways trying to forcefully see something.

I noticed that my scribbles didn't really changed depending on the song either. The timing and rate at which I made the scribbles did, but the streams of lines and marks pretty much stayed the same.

I forced the shapes in on the Toast one. I predecided what I wanted to do on that one. The Alien was obviously there to me. And the smile faces, I think you can make them out in the original.

I drew all of these on the Wacom since I didn't have access to a scanner away from home. On the Family Man scribble, I opened my eyes to see that I had accidently opened a window to open a file - so I didn't get a full song's worth of line. I let the lines flow naturally, but I agree, they looked very similar in each one. Some song parts had me drawing little bits on a beat, and then as instruments came in, the line would lengthen, usually drawing up for high notes and down for low notes.

Great job, as usual. I love how colorful the doodles are and how you chose to pull certain elements out of the canvas rather than try to make a cohesive picture.
