This week’s word at Monday Artday was a difficult one…. “envision“. I really thought about this one for a long time. Envision is a pretty abstract word. It brings forth thoughts of visionaries like Thomas Edison or Walt Disney. It envokes thinkers like DaVinci and Plato. Great men. Men with ideas and concepts far beyond their times.
Then I thought, “What do lazy people envision?”
A “tip of the hat” for style inspiration to R. Crumb and jimmyjanesays.
Two illustrators whose penwork I admire.
I envision being a lazy person one day. Does that count? Great idea!!!
I’d tip my hat to you, but I haven’t got a hat!
Boom Boom Boom Boom Boom
Let my inspiration flow
in token lines suggesting rhythm
that will not forsake me
till my tale is told and done
Inspiration, move me brightly
light the song with sense and color,
hold away despair
More than this I will not ask
faced with mysteries dark and vast
statements just seem vain at last
some rise, some fall, some climb
to get to Terrapin
So, where exactly did you find your inspiration for a Lazy person????? Let me think……
I shouldnt be in the same sentence as R Crumb, but thanks.
So this is what men who call into sports talk radio stations look like.
Hey man, you rock my world, that was great and I didn’t even notice the R Crumb influence until you noticed it but sick!
Just thought I’d throw that out there.
I went from back to front with your stuff by the way, so this might see a little weird to comment on this specifically…..keep it up
