it must just be the colours

in brilliant pepka-chrome.

 

the neck on the original was just too long. as much as i liked my original take on cat power's "moon pix" for what it was, i've increasingly felt like i needed to have another go at it.

 

i tried to slow down my sketching process. making it more deliberate gave me the kind of detail and feeling that's in this one and not in the first one. i didn't take the shortcut of using the same colours i did in the first. i sampled new colours for everything.

 

i used the first as a bit of a touchstone - what i liked and what i didn't allowed me to make one that i like better. i coloured it in the time i took me to listen all the way through "moon pix."

 

i listened to a lot of cannibal corpse to-day too. not necessarily germane, but whatever.

 

what is germane is that the braves have been on a ridiculously-intolerable nine game losing streak. i felt like if i could remake the cat power piece, it would let us score some runs.
