    We have been working on an an Instagram page that follows the US Presidential Election. Started at 500 days out, we have 85 days to go (we hope).…

    We made some non-partisan yard signs. One side you can write on with dry erase, other side you can leave as is:

    Still have some left if anyone would like one.

    Stupid wee thing, almost literally - a ~35mm diameter sticker for prints.

    Disregard alignment, I've had a couple.

    Otherwise, any thoughts? Other than, "you want a crit on a throwaway 2p sticker? What the fuck has become of QBN?!"

    • I'll tell you one thing. For now on, I won't bend.CyBrainX
    • Maybe have the BEND text reflect the bent line above? It bothers my eye that it doesn't progress the same way the other elements do!

      ; )
    • A biit late - had 10k of these printed last week :)Nairn
    • Yes, bend the BEND!grafician
    • Ended up going with two - English and an international one, which just has the one bent line, with anime-style exasperation lines at the kinks.Nairn
    • How about re-writing the copy to something like, 'Please, No benders'?Chimp

    Finally, today, I finished my quarantine project. I began with this in May 2020.

    I had photographed a cheesy photo last year and had the idea to turn it into a so-called diamond painting, then frame it and photograph it hanging on a wall.

    A diamond painting basically is a sticky paper where you glue thousands of small plastic diamonds on. The paper says where to glue which color, so it is all about patience, only.

    But it requires a lot of patience. I glued more or less 32,000 pieces to finish this 40x50cm artwork. This took me around 100 hours in total.

    Was it worth it? Certainly not. But I remembered the QBN quote 'Never don't give up' and so I finished this off.

    I would like to point out that the woman originally had nothing between her legs. Nothing red, I mean. The diamond painting has 33 colors (why 33, I wondered) and either they have no skin tones in their plastic palette or they produced this as 'safe for work' (= censored my uploaded photo). I still finished it and will see if I can tweak the colors when photographing the framed version.

    Very satisfied this is finally away from our dining table.

      I suspect not well.
    • ..unless, I suppose, if this is your wife?

      Can I wank to this?

    For sted (thanks for really pushing me to show some work and give inspiration) for mono's constant ignorant hate. My latest piece called STED + MONO, LOVE CHANGES ALL.

    Disclaimer: for sake of identities i'm not going to say which one is sted and which one is mono. leave that for the imagination

    • A homoerotic sketch? Says a lot about how your idiotic mind works. You’re not only an idiot, you’re a bigoted asshole too.monospaced
    • And your drawing skills are almost as bad as your writing. How embarrassingmonospaced
    • wow mono you are such a bigot. use such terms as homoerotic when its all just love.deathboy
    • #homoeroticlovematte... #sted+mono-foreverdeathboy

    • Mono go back to being the lowest ring on the ladder of your frat. If you could achieve that heightdeathboy
    • Have you ever noticed your insult never describe me. Be hard to imagine some one agreeing the insults you assert apply. They appear to be more projectionsdeathboy
    • Clearly you have issues with self esteem. The stereotypical jock trying to project authority as his father does over himdeathboy
    • But my guess not a jock. Never been anything really. No talents to hang a hat on. Hence the money aspects. Authority and projecting an idea I'm poor for authorideathboy
    • Be more like Stef he's far more interesting most of the timedeathboy
    • You think your insult describes me? Fucking idiot. That describes you perfectly. You won't find anyone here that disagrees. Prove me wrong, fucktard moron.doublespaced
    • Oh, and I'm not a jock. I'm a total dad bod nice guy who would never pick a fight with anyone, and thinks that's idiotic. Frat? Look who's insecure. Little bitcdoublespaced

    Right. Born to die, 3D is a fuck.

    Since moving over to 3ds Max / Corona Render at work about a year ago and with it all the madness and death Autodesk products bring, there was absolutely no choice but to stab Cinema 4D in the neck and end any type of recreational 3D at home. It couldn't be done.

    Instead, I poured my depressed ape brain into 2D work and digital painting - trying my hand at concept art and futuristic fuckery. All ending in pure misery. But through an unlikely combination of banal Swedish residential architecture, John Berkey, and Robert McGinnis' paintings of tits and ass I stumbled, like some drunken Irishman, into a process and technique that has resulted in a prolonged thrust of inspiration and a satisfying flow of work that has proved to be my most rewarding and enjoyable since fuck knows when.

    Like, I can't even recall the last time I was genuinely content and pleased with my creative endevours. Maybe the first time I managed to do decent eyeliner. I dunno.

    There is no deep, cosmic, exploration. No profound flannel about the human condition and A-R-T. The gig is simple.

    The nuts and bolts of it is me taking pictures of buildings then recreating parts of them in Photoshop using a couple of brushes, some weird colours, and my extended SUNN O))) playlist built from Scandinavian live bootlegs and album releases.

    I will now push the BROADCAST! button and hope that the links show correctly.

    Not really work, more of a lockdown project to get me away from my screen. I've been working on this oil painting for about 6 weeks. I've always loved the work of Pieter Claesz, particularly his 'ontbijtjes' still lifes. So I decided to do a still life with objects I had laying around in that style. When life gives you lemons...…

    Not recent work.
    I'd guess this scraper-board is about 23 years old, did it when I had some art talent. Found it over the weekend in a box full of memories. It's now sitting on one of our shelves in livingroom. I might grab a frame for it.
