this is like a fucking livejournal entry, but i think its more iteresting if you hear the story about it.. okay, a few of my friends are in bands and theyre going on a minitour. so one of them asked me to make their band a tour flyer. there are 2 bands, she turned us into trees and H(E)LP (AKA humanity erased liberty and peace.. but no one says the whole thing anyway). basically i decided to paint a picture of she turned us into trees (because they didnt really have a logo) on a mini-canvas, or an acrylic pad (canvas textured paper, but a mini-canvas sounds cooler). they didnt have a logo, but they have this as their default picture so i decided to go off of that, but more detailed. pretty much i started off drawing it on the mini-canvas with pencil. then i realized i lost my painting palette, so i just used a photograph i took a long time ago for a photography assignment and used it as a painting palette. i didnt really care about it because it was a dumb picture and i only took it because i had nothing else better on that roll of film. BUT ANYWAYS.. i needed a guy to stand there, so i just used this picture on his myspace for a model http://l00075.myspace.com/00075/24/40/75620442_l.jpg i X'ed out his face because i didnt want to draw it. pretend its supposed to be artistic. i could probably come up with some explination, like it stands for the discontentment for human feelings and inappreciative-ness of people you suppposedly care for....... but i have no idea where they came up with the band name, so ill leave it as an X. my "alternative palette" by the time i was done. finished painting. i think it ended up looking like a french flag, which was not really what i was going for. final painting scanned. no flashy-ness. and H(E)LP already had a logo, so i just used that. the completed flyer. the end.
