"9:30 P.M., And I'm Already in Bed!" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

in Alien Art Hivelast month

I'm old. I'm GRANDPA old...and that's saying something. When I was 19 with a purple mohawk sleeping on people's floors, jumping barbed wire fences to crash my skateboard in emptied water towers, and passing out at rave parties, the likelihood that I'd make it to 30 was pretty low. Now, I'm pushing 50...and I'm in bed at 9:30!

Happy that Hive is back! It felt weird not wrIting a "goodnight" post last night (technically, I posted a short thing to Tweeeter, but it just wasn't the same. )

NFT Showroom is also back, which is awesome. I didn't realize how often I checked in there---until I tried to and was met with an animated gear graphic (which was clever), but no new artwork to look at! My life felt weird...emptier... But it's BACK now, so all is well!

Meanwhile I've continued working on art, like this ABSTRACT PIECE:

[Digital drawing.]

And this odd, deformed skeletal creature:

[Ink on notebook page with digital embellishments and color.]

And THIS piece, which I previewed as a "work in progress" on Twitter last night:

[Ink on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color.]

So I haven't just been laying there snoozing! Nope. I've been drawing between naps and coffee breaks and shots of whiskey... Ha! (Technically, I've only had one glass of whiskey---St. Brendans Irish Cream---in the last few months, and that was tonight, but I have a "bad grandpa" image to uphold, so don't go around telling folks that I don't drink very often! It would scar my rep!!!)

The OTHER thing that I've been working on is my HALLOWEEN PIRATE RADIO SHOW!!! I spent several hours today crawling thru tunes, finding sample snippets, and making a road map for what I HOPE will be a very entertaining show!!! (Tentacles crossed!!!)

Alright, I'm signing off! Got books to read and anxieties to explore in my dreams! Later!!!
