aurel schmidt.

Today was the busiest I've been in weeks. Though I still have time to blog! It is like when I do nothing all day I can't even find the motivation to blog, but when I go out and actually see living creatures besides my dogs, I feel like I can do anything!

Back to things that are actually interesting...

When trolling the internet for something thoroughly time wasting, I found the drawings of Aurel Schmidt. Lies. I found a picture of Aurel Schmidt and thought she looked like a kookier version of Chloe Sevigny, and my interest was peaked. So I looked her up and apparently she is this New York scenester. Who happens to be an awesome artist, in my humble opinion (I accidentally wrote onion the first time. Wow.).

Anyways her drawings are really intricate, yet someone they have a great texture to them. Many of them have a sort of sinister look to them, in the vein of the Chesire Cat. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about her shapes coming from objects (cigarette teeth, flower eyes, etc.). On one hand I think it is really cool how it is different up close. On the other, I feel like that is a little over done, and at this point, a little gimmicky. I don't know, what do you think? What would Cher think?






Aw, man. Oogie Boogie all the way.
