experimental noise rock/ dream folk creature band~

my initial idea was to draw a stay at home hobo who had a campfire in his bedroom, and there were going to be little hobos having a campfire in his ‘head space’, but then i decided to draw a band of creatures with musical creatures in their head space…

but i am so in the mood for a campfire, and playing experimental or traditional folk songs. maybe even near the campfire light

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place
In the family of things.
"Wild Geese," Mary Oliver (via commovente)

internal designs or drawings without any creatures~

On my volcano grows the grass,
A meditative spot,
An area for a bird to choose
Would be the general thought.

How red the fire reeks below,
How insecure the sod—
Did I disclose, would populate
With awe my solitude  - Emily Dickinson

i watched a blue jay and a cardinal get along peacefully and eat bird feed underneath a crabapple tree. the tree and wind put me in a mood that made me feel light. it is very peaceful drawing at night listening to Gabriel Fauré, i tend to do drawings like those above when i listen to his music… this video of terrier puppies made me smile

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for. It doesn’t interest me how old you are, I want to know if you are willing to risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine. It doesn’t interest me where you live or how rich you are, I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and be sweet to the ones you love. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and truly like the company you keep in the empty moments of your life.

a little restaurant on top of head~

i really don’t like going more than a few days with out posting a cartoon, how does a week go by so fast or a geologic age for that matter?  i remember when i was a kid and reading that dinosaurs went extinct 65,000,000 years ago, so now i guess they went extinct at least over 65,000,020 years ago. it just seems like yesterday it was 65,000,000 years ago.

i am glad evolution equipped humans with the ability to draw cartoons, and to have the ability to think of the vastness of geologic time in contrast to the ephemeral nature of our human life. it is cool to be a part of something so very ancient & weird even just for a brief moment. i need to try out more restaurants, specifically there is a Tibetan restaurant in Northampton i want to try, i don’t want the nature of impermanence to pass me by without trying that…

"Nature is deep and, finally, as inscrutable as Being itself." Joseph Campbell

going beyond one’s self, and finding something innate within one’s self, and that can be had maybe through a good restaurant experience
