Compost by Conrad Stryker

My first professionally accepted piece of illustration. Pretty psyched, I am.

View it here

Crayons, sharpie marker, and graphite on white sketch paper. (Yes, I used a box of Crayolas for this. I guess that makes me a seven year old.) Slightly brightened in GIMP.

“Waste Not, Want Not,” as the old saying goes …

    Congrats! Super usage of primary tools to make this a successful artwork, but Ewww!! :))

  • ‘Eew’? Really? Come on, it’s a natural bodily function. What’s so gross?

    Just messin’ with ya. That’s half the reason I picked this subject. I’ve got a soft spot for ‘dick and fart jokes,’ so to speak.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Gotta loooooooov this…especially the crayola part. doesn’t it give you a kick to use cheap tools?

  • Glad ya ‘loooooooov this’, QK.

    Sure does give me a kick to use cheap tools. Then again, it’s really a matter of necessary and, by that very same coin, I’m one of those ‘everything and the kitchen sink’ type of cats. Like Lennon said, " … give me a tuba, I’ll bring you something out of it."

    Wish I could show you this series I’m working on right now using ‘found’ materials, but it’s far too early to let the cat out of the bag on that one. There are some legal issues I’ve got to work out before I can go around displaying these things. (The material, itself, being illegal to possess or sell in most countries … "wink, wink, nudge nudge, say no more … ")

    …. whoever wrote probably believed women never ever fart either. I love the colourful detail in this picture.

    For most of us (all male, most of females and some of the rest) anything concerning females is good. The comments to your work are a good proof of this. And just to make it esasy, compare the numbers of comments to photos of naked women with those who are not. I like women in general but I refuse to lose my mind just because they are naked.
    Your work is different. Sheakespeare would have said:
    A shit with any other name would smell the same? Or not? That is the question. I like your sense of humour.

    Houses and cars are quite expensive and not everybody is able to buy it. But, <a href=" loans</a> are invented to support different people in such situations.
