mind expanding nonsense

What the heck.  It’s Saint Patrick’s day today, and although I didn’t plan on posting today, The wife has Irish music blasting, green stuff all over the house, and a corned-beef brisket in the refrigerator.  So here’s some stuff I did on the Eve before Saint Paddy’s Day.

Now with Daylight savings going full blast, it doesn’t get dark here in Southern California till after 7:30 p.m.  So you don’t need the lights on till later (is that the savings part?).  But when it does get dark, ya gotta turn on the lights.  But again, if you’re really into a drawing, ya don’t want to get off your fat ass, just to turn on the lights; you could loose artist momentum.  So you just sit there in the dark and finish drawing.  Thing of it is, most of my stuff looks really good in the dark.

Finally!  We’re getting a good storm system through my half of California.   That means rain, and a good deep drink for the garden and fruit trees.  It’s about time; had zippo in January and February.

Dave Hole is an Australian blues guitar player, who is gaining in popularity here in the States after Chicago based Alligator Records signed him.  Dave is noted for his stratospheric guitar solos, and playing slide guitar with his ‘bottle-neck’ over the top of the guitar neck.  I was right up there in the stratosphere with him when I drew that one.

So Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to one and all!  Is 10 a.m. too early to slurp down a Guinness?

  1. Protestant and Italian here. Columbus Day.

  2. Don’t know where you get all these amazing ideas from hansi. You should wok for Walt Disney 🙂

    • Most of it is just drawing into lines/forms as they appear. Try it sometime with your nudes, ya might like it.


  3. Happy Saint Paddy’s day, Hansi. Love the drawings.

  4. Well, you were busy while Wifey went green. I’m always reminded of this day when others mention it. Otherwise, I don’t think of it. Anyway, cool drawings, even in the dark. You’re pretty good at optical illusions.

    The closest I got to green yesterday was pulling dandelions out of my yard. I do enjoy a Guinness, though – once in a while. Waiting for Rain is a wonderful piece of art.

    • Thanks…and we actually did get some rain ! Looks like I’ll be pulling dandelions soon too. [Or is that too soon?]


  6. How about your poor old Norwegian Dad? Those Germans just overwhelm everything.

  7. Our half of California is soaked also. Got into SFO on Wednesday and drove the 100 miles home in the rain. And it’s been raining (snowing just up the hill in Placerville) ever since. Not complaining though.

  8. Ok … Even though you can’t become Irish for a day, how was the corn beef brisket? Meanwhile, we enjoyed the green spaghetti! Oh yes – loved the drawings.

  9. hang on, i’ll just go and turn out the lights …… nope still don’t understand 😉
