The guys know what I'm talkin' about...

So originally I had about a dozen different ideas for this piece. Each more hilarious and yet more inappropriate than the next. Finally I decided on this direction but sadly found that it was still incredibly inappropriate. So check the cropped image above and if no one else is around click here for the full version.


And Yet...

Sins are dumb.

I think it might be a sin to sit around and paint on a Friday night. I should be getting my party on or something... Whatever.

Copyright © 2009 Jesse Riggle
Um, so this is my painting. Which I painted tonight, on a Friday. It doesn't apply to the topic at all really. Which I guess is me being a contrary butt-face. But last I checked being a contrary butt-face is not technically a sin, though maybe I should call the pope to confirm. But, as I always say, 'If the pope is infallible, then so am I." So I don't need to ask him, because I say its not a sin, so its not a sin. OK? Perfect. Speaking of which, I couldn't do this for reals even if I wanted too. I am perfect and without sin, and no that's not vanity, see the previous statement about my infallibility. Look it up. And I also don't think being self delusional is a sin either. Not that I am self delusional, but if I was I'd be in the clear anyway.

It's little, on paper, and it's paint.

Sinning is so easy.

When I think about Sin, obviously I think of the 7 Deadly Sins. Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride.

And, in most modern cases, I think you can trace the cause of these Sins back to one thing: money.

i like to buy stuff, too.

I did this version at the beginning of the month and finished it quickly. But I was hoping to go back and do another version with hand-worked media. I still might, but I thought I'd post this before the month is up, to make sure I'm not tardy.

CMYKupid for realz...

...super naked baby squad! kicking ass and breaking hearts!...

Okay! Here it is. I'm getting kinda tired of clean vector work, plus I really liked my drawing so I tried to rework it back into the vector stuff. Hope you guys dig it!

Sweet! That's two for last month...now on to the March challenge.

greed, wrath, pride, gluttony.

four of seven isn't so bad.

OK, so I'm a little late. Forgive the roughness of the piece. I am at home using the mac which I hardly design on anymore. I'm on a PC 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. :( And my title isn't as clever as the others. AAAAND I just lost an hour out of my day thanks to daylight savings :(.

March's Super Awesome Art Challenge is...

So this month has really gotten away from me already. I originally had a different theme in mind but I thought I would throw you a bone and give you an easy one.

Time to go public! We've all got our flaws and we all battle with our own little personal demons. Whether it be lust, greed, malice or envy; this month's challenge is to illustrate your own personal worst inner demon. No need for background or any extra junk. This is merely a character study. So let the soul searching...er...drawing begin and next month I promise I'll be a little more on the ball. Maybe I need to draw my "slack-off" demon.

Good luck!

CMYKupid Challenge Complete...

Great job everyone...little bit of a slim turnout for this challenge but the submissions we got were still fantastic! Again everyone surprised the heck out of me with the direction they took their artwork. Looks like Sara and myself still have a little work to do...

I hope with the addition of a few extra days and all that Valentines Day mush out of the way we can get a larger participation for March.

As always, keep up the awesome work everyone.

Okay...ha ha ha ha...this isn't my final entry but I did this just for kicks. This is how I truly envision the mascot of love.

I do kind of like this piece though...

I'll be posting another piece soon.

cupid is a baby with it's butt showing. and since i wasn't feeling the butt-babies this month, this entry is a collaboratively morphed, but lovingly handled, symbol of mine and chris (hajny)'s affection.

true love.... true zombie love - that is what symbolizes my love for chris h. and vice versa (i'm sure).

we're in the process of making some wedding plans and thought this was a fitting way to unite our stuff .... (it started out as our save the date and snowballed into something else!)

i drew the faces and inked them and chris added the zombie hair.texture.faces.linework combination!
