I’m going to lead a weekly Recumbent Ride for the local Prairie Cycle Club, so I drew some things for it:
Here’s the resultant flyer:
Above: Lexula, Goddess of Scrabble. Her right hand dispenses letter tiles – randomly, because she is blindfolded. Her left hand wields the CrosSword.
Below: Cryonysus, God of Whiney Man-Babies.
Neither of these are technicallyHundred Dollar Drawings, since I drew them for myself during a slow period. But they are of that genre, so I’m including them in the series.
I really like the spontaneity, freshness, and non-computery-ness of drawing tiny on paper. Lately I’ve been drawing little flipbooks, but even this “Ganesha Marimba” looks suspiciously like a conventional pencil test, in spite of being only a couple inches wide and drawn in ballpoint pen. So I upped my game and drew even smaller:
This is easier than drawing flipbooks because I can see everything at the same time, rather than only the one drawing previous. And it’s tiny! So full of lovely mistakes and life.
Next I plan to draw even tinier!
Technically not a Hundred Dollar Drawing.
From the Hundred Dollar Drawing page: “As always, if you have a special request, don’t want to follow the restrictions, want a regular commercial contract, etc., you must contact me and offer way more money, because $100 is crazy cheap. I’m not saying I’ll do it, but if I do, it will definitely cost more.”
