Zeezrom's real Goddess...

(I don't think my zeezrom portrait turned out that well, so here's a little something to make up for it.)

Blixa,

This warmed my heart.

You make a good point about my real Goddess. It would certainly explain her long absences when I've been praying to her in the past couple of months. Duh! She's been on the Monster tour!

I have more to say about this but I think people are getting tired of it.

Blixa, I think you're cheating. You're using a sophisticated drawing program with some sort of stylus, not Microsoft Paint and a mouse.

Scott parts his hair the other way. But I like it.

No sexual frustration during your mission celibacy?

I'm using my mouse which is why my hand cramps up half way through anything I try to draw. And I'm just using the bundled faux photoshop software that comes with Canon cameras along with a shareware drawing program. I would really rather have drawn things by hand using pen and ink and watercolour, but I don't have a scanner either.

I didn't start out with John Paul in mind, but he took over when I added the glasses. I actually started using photos of Walter Benjamin as a reference point, but discarded that idea when I realized what I'd drawn could have doubled for Trotsky. And just wouldn't be right.

I have to admit that there have been some really good "art" exhibits on this thread. I think Doctor Scratch, Dr. Shades, and Blixa deserve particular praise. I don't subscribe to Doctor Scratch's underlying messages, but his illustrations are very well done! They made me laugh because they are so well done. Maybe you should become a cartoonist, Doctor Scratch.

I heartily agree; Dr. Scratch truly has a gift. I've busted up laughing over every one of his cartoons. AND I DON'T LAUGH EASILY!

At least four things are apparent from Scratch's offerings here:

1. He has some artistic ability. (To the suggestion, above, that he become a cartoonist, I would respond that he's already been one for at least five years.)

2 He's paying no attention to the "rules" of the thread, which is supposed to be dedicated to depictions of MDB posters.

3. He's expressing precisely the same personal hostilities, employing the same themes and directed at the same people, to which he's grimly dedicated the past half decade of his life. (It's difficult not to think, albeit on a much lower level, of T. S. Eliot's famous comment about the novelist Henry James, that "He had a mind so fine that no idea could violate it.")

4. The difference in spirit and tone between Scratch's personally insulting cartoons and Blixa's affectionate ones could hardly be clearer.

I know that as a Classicist I should be a huge fan of Eliot, and I do respect his work, but I was always more of a Dylan Thomas kind of guy.

Gee, thanks, Dr. P.

Yeah... I've never had much interest in "rules."

Please correct me if I'm wrong... But wasn't Eliot speaking to James's neglect of the "real," working class? Eliot was a Modernist, after all, and James (at least part of his output) predated that.... Eliot's poetry (especially something like The Wasteland) speaks to the segments of society that James's fiction would almost automatically have ignored. Thus, your criticism here seems rather like complaining that Toni Morrison "has a mind so Black that no Whiteness could violate it," or that Raymond Carver "had a mind so Trailer Trash that no Sophistication could violate it."

Maybe you need to come up with a more productive cliché?

Quote:

Oh, I'll readily acknowledge Blixa's vastly superior technical skill. That's obvious at a glance. (Shades's, too.) These two are far more technically able than I am. All I can say (and I'm just guessing here) is that crudity occasionally has its charms.

But feel free to contribute, Dan! Let go of your grim humorlessness.

Let me just say here that I am in deep awe of all of the drawing participants in this thread.

I have an appreciation for art, but can't draw my way out of a paper bag.

WELL DONE, ALL!!!!!!

I am overjoyed to see Scratch and DCP engaging in healthy debate once again. Finally, MDB is back in business!

I'm not seeing any pictures here.

Do you need some ideas? How about depicting Scratch as some sort of stalker-like character with a facial expression suggesting malevolent intentions?
