THREE WEEKS POST OP!


Ugh...
I'm still taped up and sore where they surgeon sliced me open, its been almost a month now... When will this end?
I'm recovering but, still don't feel better..Sitting isn't comfy, standing gets rough after a long time, and lying down isn't any real prize either... I'm trying to keep positive (with drawings/painting/pints/episodes of the A-team/and my close friends, but feel myself slipping a little. Bumming out a little. I wanna run again, and lift, and be more active...but, with the medical stuff requiring me to take it easy I feel as thought I'm a little old before my time.

Well Enough of my B.S.
These are the actual drawings I did at Medical Center while I waited for the Surgeon to work on me. They called the night before to tell me when to report for Pre-Op, and they then told me to bring nothing other then the clothes on my back, and a case for my glasses....
No cash, no phone, no backpack,...nothing. I figure they probably have a problem with personal items walking off and rather then claim responsibility, it was smarter not to bring them...
But, no sketchbook? That's too much to ask. It's a waiting room, and a train ride downtown..I'm gonna be bored...
So I clipped some little cutlets of paper together with a binder clip, and grabbed a ballpoint pen, and my house keys, and I was out the door.
These are some of those drawings.

Hope you dig.

Man.
You could easily be the most talented illustrator in this city, I kid you not.
Have you even bothered to submit your work to illustration reps?

UM said...

Excellent work. And if Elliot says so, go for it.

I'll see about being a little more proactive with the promotion...

Gotta keep improving though, still so much to learn and draw...

all righty dude, weather is getting good, once you heal up some more we shall get you out and about, maybe some frisbee if nelson can promise not to shatter his spine this time-hard to be patient when you just want to get out and about but its worth it to make sure you dont wreck yourself before time.
Keep grinning

GOGOPEDRO said...

Thanks again guys..
Liam, yeah just down in the mouth...the road to recovery is just seems long when your on it I guess.
Gotta go see the doctors here in the coming weeks to square things away I guess.

Angela, Yep, I try to keep that pencil or pen moving as much as possible....its the only way I'm gonna get any better at this stuff.
