"I’ve mentioned before, but I have a friend who endlessly poses for me so that I can practice figure drawing. Sometimes he’ll outright hold still and sometimes he’ll just move about doing something while I grab shots. This is one of the latter examples, where I just asked if he’d pick up his cat.
Anyway, it just made me laugh that this turned out to encapsulate the summer for me so far, because the full list of materials used to paint this are acrylic paint, coffee, marker, some kind of cheap children’s paint, vodka, and cigarette ash. I am nothing if not sentimental, lazy, and a bit disgusting—the horrid truth behind all artists, I would think. I also accidentally spilled coffee across the top right corner before I’d even begun painting. Story of my life right there."
