fuck I’m on a roll with the journal entries this feels good i love getting it all out  it feels fucking good. more figure drawings I jazzed up with journal drawings most of my pages don’t really feel satisfy in till my page has journal text.I drew this in los angles . All I want to do is draw ,my friends in LA get bored because thats all I want to do.  thats all I’m really interested in .finding the next page in my book  its so exhilarating. this is a story when that goes very kinda bad. I’m bored in los angles I don’t know any one there any more except for justin my best friend. yet he was busy with his day job at papa john’s pizzzzzzza.I used meet up .com to find a drawing thing at this bar called “SLUR” in lincoln heights

I have never been more sketched out in my life. I should have know better but I was fuckin bored man I COULD HAVE BEEN FUCKIN DEAD.  the side walk was littered with empty  cigarette boxes ,six pack rings ,condoms , broken syringes  it was an industrial wear house area and my spider tingles were tripping the fuck out. its was the kind of place where light disappears and no one hears cries for help. the fences of the bar was made of sheets or random metal with generous amounts of razor wire . the bar looked like a prison.I had to be fucking nuts to stick around . so chilled on the corner trying to figure out another drawing opportunity  when a battered car of los angles finest pulls up next to me and asks me what the fuck am i doing here?

 the officer ask me if Im a part of the aryan brother hood………..

what?!!! he pointed at my boots with RED laces…

you know what those mean around here

apparently red laces mean I spilled blood for the nazi cause. 

I told him no of course not. Im hispanic

then he asked me if I was white

already told him i was hispanic…….. 

he told me to switch out the laces  and get out of here.

 I dipped the fuck out the aryan brother hood is hardcore and I didn’t want to fuck with any of that shit.

I went to holly wood thats what all the bored people in La do i was surprised the meet up ad seemed really legit it looked like a good time. really tamed fuckin nazi have to ruin every thing I just like red.red is my favorite color…well more Burgundy but there sister colors

I chilled in the rusty mullet bar drinking pbr.  what I learned in holly wood almost all bars suck and are expensive and that tuesday is a boring night for holly wood and i regretted wasting my money. I was hoping justin would meet up with me but he didn’t want to waste his money wise choice…….. I’ve seen more lively people in  zombie movies. I went to bar sinister in holly wood I use to know someone that worked there I wanted to see what it was like…..bar sinister only happens on saturdays  what i experienced was just bar…… whatever I had a lot of  room to draw. no one was there I drew the candles that were there burning in to a congealed mass of wax . the crowd consisted of only six people

four of  them  were the next band to play. I heard alot of cool alice in chain covers they weren’t amazing…. I met a nice lady forget what the fuck her names was  she had a lovely  girl friend with a old lady name like gretta or some thing. they were wonderful conversationalist in till they started making out…………. I sat the on a flaky leather couch  drawing angry drunk faces around my figure drawings.. while make out drool sloshed on my pageS I thought of my girlfriend elly.I even though this night was complete bogus and I have kisszzzzy stainz gently drizled on my favorite Burgundy jeans she would have loved it.

had my second day at peet’s coffee it was fucking awesome i’m caffeinated on life baby!!!!

page from my sketch book  has a drawing of my father in it. he is currently disabled he  fell out of a tree during a job. he was a carpenter so now he’s pretty much  out of work for life. I have been telling him for years that he is pushing  his body too hard  he would tell me he doesn’t know any thing else “i’ve worked hard my whole life tiger I’m a tough jimmy jack Nebraskan”

my dad has a colorful vocabulary, these are model sketches i jazzed up with  journal sketches . in this page I was with my father at the social security  center,we were seeing if I qualified for grant benefits because of my fathers disability. My brother was already accepted and got a grant for $10,000 plus $450 a month till he turns 19. june 7 was his 18th so he still has a lot of money coming his way. Turns out  I didn’t qualify i was too old when my dads benefits kicked in. the drawing below my father is of the social security worker  that basically told me I get nothing. I was disappointed I could have really used that money. It would have made life a lot easier. I wasn’t any worse off so I shrugged it off. my dad exploded like a rabid baboon….. I tried to calm him down but he is a thick headed Nebraskan and he doesn’t listen to anyone. the woman called security to escort us out I made my dad go quietly.My brother is very lucky and guess who’s going to paris for his first year at usc film school with all that cheddar.if I said I’m not green with envy it would be a lie.my brother and I never really got along we tolerate each other now but we’re basically strangers . I learned more about him than I ever knew from his drunken girlfriends at his birthday  a couple weeks ago. they say he  has been working on a movie inspired by me so maybe he just being tough and actually admires me in some weird distant way. he’s  a mystery to me and now that he is leaving I fear we will only grow farther apart. he’s  got a couple more months left hopefully I can makes them count. gives me a reason togo to europe though lots of thing to draw and possible memories to treasure  greed isn’t a family value …………….I’ll get over it i’m tough like my father and I don’t need that money I’ll find a way some how

Ive been experimenting a lot with chiseled ink brushes  this drawing is kinda weak but i think technique can be pushed into some thing really awesome.
I was angry when I drew this I like it I feel better now that its on the page and out of my thoughts :)
chisel brush is defiantly a new favorite
