Meet the Ambassadors

Some Aliens I drew just for fun.



Also, digging further into my past, I found these two drawings I did when I was about 3 and 5 years old, which struck me as weirdly similar...




Finally, the Melvins, one of my favorite bands, toured my town last week promoting their new album, which I actually like less than their previous more experimental ones. The concert was brilliant though. They also have a new video which you can watch on youtube. It was obviously done with a rather small budget but it's cool and it's got all the weird shit in it we love so dearly here on EBD:
Melvins - The Talking Horse

I love the Melvins too (though there recent stuff does not excite me much, alas.) The drawings from your 3 year old self are somewhat similar ...but your signature is eerily consistent....

Great weird characters, I had a similar experience in stumbling across art I made as a child that looked frighteningly similar to stuff I'd done recently. I think some of these ideas are in our brains from birth and we never stop drawing them.

Man, the similarity is amazing, FUFU!
I visited a freind a while back who I've known since 6th grade or so.She pulled out a drawing I'd done in 7th grade art class; It was a mans' head within a weird mutated looking mass, like the man had been sucked into it.The mans' mouth was open wide , like he's screaming. It was drawn in really crude, heavy black shapes that were meant to convey shadow effects.
I'd completely forgotten about the drawing of course- I was knocked out of joint by the realization that I'm essentially doing exactly the same thing 15 years later, regardless of whatever affectations I've picked up or what I think I'm doing at any given time..

I was heavily influenced in those 1,000 monster drawings I'm doing by a small book of drawings I'd made and stapled together which I'd found a few years back. I must have been around 5 or 6 when I'd made it. There were about 8 pages and each had a hideous looking creature of some kind. One I know for sure was my interpretation of the Masters of the Universe character, Grizzlor. It reminded me of my passion for drawing individual goddamn monsters, so I went to it.
