Cliff by 13shadesofblack Cliff by 13shadesofblack
Micron pen, markers, construction paper, and Post-it paper on cardboard.

Thoughts - A submission for "club-ugly". I was thinking substitute P.E. coach. Ugly must be as much in the eye of the beholder as beauty. This is one of my more popular drawings. I can't help but wonder if it would have been as well received without the color sections.

Thank you. I was going for some elaborate forms there. It worked out fairly well.

I don't know. I recently realized that all of my work is experimental and exploratory. It's difficult for me to continue a style, as I'm kind of all over the place in content and in application. Like, using post-it notes was a spur of the moment thing that ended up working out well, but I haven't done it since. I guess I don't know why. I've done "ugly" stuff, and I've done tons of other micron line drawings, but I guess I haven't used all the same elements together.

I kind of consider [link] to be in the same boat as the "Cliff" piece in style and content. Maybe it's not as similar as it is in my mind.

Thanks for commenting though. People don't ask me questions like that very often, so I don't really think back on a lot of these things. I'll try it out though and I'll get back to you. Thanks again

wow.. mindblowing. seriously. :worship:
fantastically imaginative, very original, great concept, well executed and fantastic use of media. there are a lot of people who mis-use cardboard but you've mixed it up with other things so well and created something great :)

I suppose beauty and ugliness are both in the eyes of the beholder. Thanks for everything. :handshake: :heart:

I like how it has large blocks of color yet fine detail, like the lines. The color choices were good too, but why you chose them is a mystery to me. :)

alllll the details are great, and very nice color placing.

i have some kind of love for all things done on cardboard, so there's an obvious bias.

but

the substitute gym teacher thing is totally sleazing on out of it, in an almost innocent way. substitute gym teachers could never really be sleazy in any official way, even on cardboard.

Good. I'm glad you thought of club ugly from looking at this. That raises my hopes a little that they'll accept it. When are you going to do your submission!?
