For his unique aesthetic and personal style. Bret Easton Ellis
For when I want to have a little fun =]
His satires are HILARIOUS. American Psycho is brilliant. And Glamorama is basically the novel form of Zoolander.So.... yeah. I love these men for their innovation. Don't misinterpret me; I don't want to be anything like them. I want to be as innovative as they are someday; but I want to create my own styles that is unlike theirs or anybody elses.
....And for those of you who don't know, I want to be a filmmaker when I grow up. And I WILL be interning with Wes Anderson someday =]
That is all.

But that's okay. I guess I just have a lot of new stuff today (?)
Okay. So. Here I have a new self-portrait, done in charcoal, using planar analysis and hatching.
The full-size picture is quite blurry, but you get the idea.
Also, SO MUCH PORTRAITURE, ALEX! WHAT THE CRAP, MAN?!
Anyway. The face looks really tight in real life. If you ever want to see it live, I can show you :)
I'd love to hear what you think!
And just in case you didn't know; you CAN comment on blogs even if you don't have a blogspot account thinger. So... You should leave me comments :) Yay!

This second image, obviously, is not a work of mine. Yesterday, I saw a lecture from a furnituremaker named Jack Larimore. He works in wood and makes really organic pieces--- it's not my style, but it was so interesting to hear his perception of art and his thinking process were intriguing to me. He talked a lot about his inspiration from nature, and how he gets most of his inspiration from looking at the material rather than drafting, although he doesn't limit himself to any certain approach toward creation. I also liked what he had to say about furniture as a medium; he said he prefers furniture rather than sculpture because it interacts in an individuals life and really impacts life in general. He also discussed art as the process rather than the product (a crucial debate in the art world) and made some very interesting points.
You can check out his portfolio here: http://www.jacklarimore.com/portfolio/tables/03_wldrf_bfft.html
