I’m gonna level with ya – I haven’t really been drawing as much as I’d like to for awhile now, getting caught up in writing or doing video editing instead. Â It’s not cool, I know, and it’s probably your fault in some way, but that’s not a thing I want to get hung up on, yeah? Â
It’s not like I fear I’ll get worse at drawing if I don’t keep it going continually, but you sure as hell don’t get better when you’re not doing it at all. Â Actually, that’s not really true…sometimes I’ll sit down at my drum set after a few months of just using it to hang stuff on and find that I don’t suck quite AS much as I did when last I wailed on the thing. Â Still, you don’t want to neglect a thing for too long when you remember it’s actually fun so why the hell aren’t you doing it?
This is the story of how I decided to have a bit of fun while using Adobe Illustrator for a thing I don’t often use it for: Â Actually drawing in. Â I’d tell you to buckle up for the ride but I’ve already driven railroad spikes through your crotches like in Serpent and the Rainbow, and whole you’re screaming like Bill Pullman with a cock full of iron I’m pushing you into the fascinating hell that is the creation of ‘It Came from the House of Pies’.
