BFA Show Dates! Yes!

Well folks, the time has come for me to talk once again of my BFA thesis show, which will officially premiere April 30th. A friday.

My junior year in college I wondered if I had lost my drive. If my sense of discipline had been vanquished by my swelling senioritis...

Now I know that not to be true. I work so hard these days that Mondays utterly astonish me. Because if it were Monday...then that would mean I must have, at some point, experienced some kind of weekend. Right?

Right. No. There are no weekends anymore. There hasn't been any since September of last semester, when I began working on my thesis.

For the longest time I wasn't sure if any of it was going to be rewarding, but upon finding the perfect dresser for my installation, I must admit that each new print feels like a major triumph. Even my shittiest work would look relevant in these drawers. I will probably include at least one print from freshman year, just to go full circle.

Eventually I'll update this post with the image I'll use on my postcard. I plan on having that done soon.
Sooner than later.
You betcha.

Now all that is left is elbow grease and paperwork. No more time for worrying.
It's go time.

Ok one more.

Two new things! A person! And a ROOM within an interior! Can it be? Gadzooks!
I really wished I showed up when you look for "Justin Hubbell" under google.
What is up with that?

A long time ago I got this pop up saying "WANT TO BECOME MORE VISIBLE? GET A GOOGLE PROFILE?"

And basically it was this thing where I would submit a picture and an address and all that jazz. I wasn't too comfortable with that idea so I tried to undo the process. I managed it, but doing so erased me completely from the search.

So now I have to recommend people search "sheeps pond" which is frankly embarrassing because the real name in Cape Cod is "Sheep Pond."

I always called it "Sheep's Pond" as a kid because I didn't know better. And while I could argue that that was what I was going for when I chose my blog name? it would still be kind of dumb of me. Which it was.

Oh well.
Oh well.

New ideas coming soon.

I like drawing interiors a lot. But I think it's time either to apply my love of them to my comics, or move on to some new practice.

I have fantasies of large paper. Making giant interiors.
Wouldn't THAT be fun.
Yes it would.

A mansion! Ooh la la.
But until then, I think it's time for something new to sink my teeth into.

I just LOVE fountain pens!

This interior obviously is kept by an inventor who does not mind clutter in the least.

...I really like toast, and toasters. It's hard not to draw them in everything I do.

Sinister Interior

Everyone has an attic, of some kind, where they torture themselves, or others.
I'm speaking metaphorically.

The drawing is literal. Not a good person, living here.

Has he gone mad??

In all seriousness...I can't seem to stop drawing what I am now constantly calling "interiors" (despite the face that I believe them to be more complex than that).

One woman remarked that I could probably sell these.
What do you think? Maybe?

Anyhow I've finally reconciled the background problem I was having.
I really enjoyed the interiors I made over break but I have to say the background distract me a little. It isn't a problem with everyone, in fact most enjoy the background. But I am a man of simplicity (false?) and I love how the latest one came out.

I did it on a pretty small piece of paper.
It took an hour and a half...roughly?

The photography is mine and I can't wait to use other mundane textures as backgrounds!
I also can't wait to incorporate my newfound fondness of interiors with my comics.
Haven't really had the time just yet...

I'm so busy with my last semester. But I run a tight ship!
