Life Without…

Life without art, life without love …is nothing.  Another collaborative sketch between me and Scottish artist Sean Fleming, done while I was traveling. This one I’m now adding color to and will post another pic when it’s done.  I love the push and pull of working together on a piece. Looking forward to doing more.

I’ve been seeing quite a bit of Marilyn on the news-stands lately..  It’s the 50th anniversary of her death.  Since she was on my mind, I did these sketches in bed the other night.  I kinda like them, but I have this masochistic tendency to draw in pen without sketching things out in pencil first, forcing myself to live with/work with my mistakes.  I like to think it’s a small act of bravery, and not just psychological torture.  It’s good to learn to let go.  I’ve heard Jesse Reno say something to this effect many times: how can you be brave in life, if you can’t even take a risk on a piece of paper?  So true.

Marilyn Monroe was one of my biggest childhood idols.  She, and Juliet Capulet (of Romeo and Juliet).  Yes, I idolized two suicidal women…  And Darth Vader.  I really wasn’t a dark child though, I swear!  Perhaps it was their headstrong-ness…

I loved watching Marilyn’s films on late-night t.v. with my grandmother, while eating popcorn doused in butter, and hard candies.  We both adored her.  Marilyn was funny, talented and smart.  And a deep and thoughtful person, who didn’t want to be dehumanized by fame.

What’s not to love?
