BOTTOM LINE AMERICA, I NEED A DVR OR SOMETHING...Tonight was the first "Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage" segment on Late Night with Conan O'Brien since I got my 26" Toshiba HDTV (26HL37) in late April (it's only 720p, but nothing in that size at the Merivale Road Future Shop was full 1080i/1080p HD). Since I got it, I haven't been able to hook my ancient Panasonic VCR into my television properly, or, technically, I can, but the cable connection refuses to hook up to the VCR anymore, so I have to hook it directly into the TV. As a result, I wasn't able to tape the "Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage" bit (something about a white, ball-shaped mushroom Pierre found on his lawn), and I'll have to wait until I can find a clip of it online to write a transcript.
If I'm writing a new blog entry anyway, you might as well look at some of my recent drawings (click on them to get to the Flickr page where you can see the full-size version).
A Ferrari Testarossa drawn in oil pastels:
The Camaro Concept car that played Bumblebee in the Michael Bay Transformers movie at the Woodward Dream Cruise drawn in oil pastels.
A Ferrari F430 Berlinetta drawn in oil pastels.
Incidentally, I spotted the exact same F430 the other day, and I love the car, but it was rather badly parked across two parking spots.
And, finally, a Ferrari 360 Modena Spider drawn in Prismacolor coloured pencils.
I'm hoping that I can get some art-related job (maybe even study to be a graphic designer just like Pierre Bernard), or, even better, sell my own artwork for cash. I'm looking into ways that I can do that, but I have to be wary of scam art selling sites. I actually have a DeviantArt page where you could buy prints (not that I've made a cent off that yet), but I don't think it's a serious venue to sell the originals.
