Oh My God Look At These Stupid Drawings

Dear Artists,
This weekend I decided to take Saturday off to make a drawing. All my friends fled to the beach to luxuriate in the golden California weather while I sat inside doing laundry and thinking of what to draw. Which was fine by me because that’s actually my favorite thing in the world to do. I had a little bit of artist’s block, so I decided to go through some of my old sketchbooks to get ideas. And when I looked through those sketchbooks I came to a shocking conclusion. I am an actual crazy person. Below is the evidence.
I Hate My Life, 15″ x 20,” Silkscreen and Collage (2007)
Blue Jay In Yosemite, 7″ x 10,” Ink on PaperĀ (2001)
I’m Kate Moss I’m Pretty, 7″ x 10,” Ink on Paper (2001)
Uh Oh, 7″ x 10,” Ink on Paper (2001)
Legs, 7″ x 10,” Ink on Paper (2001)
Kids Of California, 7″ x 10,” Ink and collage (2001)
It’s Not What You Think, 7″ x 10,” Ink and Collage (2001)
Empty Buildings, 7″ x 10,” Ink and Collage (2001)
We’re Married, 7″ x 10,” Ink and Collage (2001)
I Just Want You To Be Happy, 20″ x 30,” Gouache and Graphite on Paper (2009)
This is what I made on Saturday. I’m not obsessed with it but it felt nice to make something. A word of advice: if you want to draw something but don’t know what you want to draw, just write “Los Angeles” on a piece of paper and paint it in with pink gouache. It will make you feel better.

So yeah, those are my drawings. I hope you liked them, hated them, or were indifferent to them. And I hope they inspire you to make your own lazily produced, semi-psychotic art.
Love,
Orlando
