Handsome Pete by Trainwrekcomics Handsome Pete by Trainwrekcomics
Ok sooooo.....here's another eye rapeing piece for your display.

I was inspired by a few pics of Frankenstein's creature esp. :iconoperative274:'s more mechanical version. Now I know this is pretty much hypocritical after my WHTC journal entry, but if you'll hear me out, I will explain the situation.

True someone else did inspire this piece, but it also comes, like Torvulf before him, from some of my earlier designs, primarily the hunchback motiff. Also, and more importantly, the name alone gives a hint as to my true machinations.

See, it's a double-reference, to not only the simpson's character of the same name, but to his creation, since I see him as the discarded love child of science and industry. Hence, the name "Pete" is kind of a spelled out version of "P.T." or "Product Testing". P.T. Pee-Tee. Pete.

See? It IS creative after all!

Thank you for commenting on my pic! It's always great to hear from you!

But I'm sorry it had to be under such sad circumstances. It's no fun having to do that, and if you still need a shoulder to cry on or a friendly ear to jaw to, don't hesitate to resonate!

Really! :)

It's also just a damn fine drawing, Ben. How've you been?

Hey, good to hear from you, dude! How've you been?

Me, I've moved from NM back to TX, and have been whiling the days away until I get back to school, and by extension, some sort of routine. I'm also thinking about being a film director in addition to being a comic book creator (mostly because I'm a control freak, and don't want people messing too much with my ideas, esp. if they're my comic ideas)!

Really? A damn fine drawing? My mind...is confused. Please understand that another thing I'm going through is the fact I'm starting to doubt my art. See, there are so many, many MANY artists on here that could literally draw circles and ellipses around me that I really do wonder what people see in my drawings. It's not a knock against you or anyone else, it's just that...well, I'm amateur at best. At my most negative...well there's a reason I chose TRAINWREKcomics as my URL on here.

Well, yeah, I still think it's a damn fine drawing. I usually leave aside my extensive art education when I look at the work of others. Even the most thoroughly knowledgeable art critic or historian looks at each new work in a sort of "Duhhhhhh" way; they just LOOKING, absorbing, trying to find if it resonates with them or not. (Musicians are the same way) THEN they'll get out their book-learnin and if in a pissy mood, slash a good artist to ribbons and will give lavish praise to the most unimaginative specimens living tofday. It's been what.....2 years? 3 years? since I added you; I added you then because I simply like your work. Some days I can give cogent, even intelligent reasons as to why I like something, other days I'm not up to that sort of thing.

At that same time, it's good to recognize just how good and / or how bad one really is as an artist. I'm an amateur as well; have been an amateur musician for most of my life (and have gotten two standing ovations in 40+ years of playing). For me art is kind of like sex and love. We seek to have sex (even if it's with ourselves) because we're driven by our hormones. We like love because it makes us feel good to be loved when we're not worrying about whether he / she really means it when they say it, or worrying if they're cheating, or gave me / you an STD....love's nice. That's why I do art and music.

Little story: my daughter, now 35, was with me one night while her mother was at school. She was standing on a kitchen chair doing something while I went about the kitchen doing dishes and filling the garbage can with Stuff. It finally occured to me that she had been in one spot for quite a while. She was ten months old at the time, and kids that age don't stop running around unless they've fallen asleep, been bit by a rattler etc. I looked: she had a scrap of paper that was about 5" by 5" and on it she had drawn very simple faces, recognizable as such. I was awestruck. When she was finished (took over 45 minutes) she ran to me and gave it to me and was full of "look look!: so I really looked and she explained the whole picture. That was Mom, that one with the beard was me, her Aunt was a large circle standing with her big mouth open and yelling, even one of the dogs was in that picture. When she had finished explaining her drawing to me, I asked her why she drew it and she said, "Oh Daddy! You know why! I had to do it." Probably she got that right for 99% of us.

I...eh....uh.....

I'm....speechless. I honestly have no words to describe this kind, uplifting comment. I'm just...dumbfounded. Everything you said on here is, for the most part, true. I especially love the story of your daughter, because it's stories like that that not only make me feel warm and fuzzy, but also remind me of the truly important things. And to be honest, it also makes me feel....great....to know that someone of your artistic and aesthetic education finds my stuff...well..."damn fine". Of course, it'll still be some time before I can gain the level of confidence that most artists have, but this is a step in the right direction.

Thank you good sir. Thank you! :hug:

Really! Seriously? Thank you for your kind words, though, truth be told, I'm still not used to people complimenting my work.
