THIS WEEK on The Martha Stewart Show, we take a look at an especially botched Ratatouille! God, were those vegetables chopped with a chainsaw? What is this, Cooking with Jason Voorhees? There's like half a bottle of thyme on that thing! Are we cooking or are we trying to OD on seasoning? Join us next week, where we'll hopefully be making something that doesn't actively degrade the sanctity of creation. This has been Hell's Kitchen. Don't under cook the risotto!

I'm going to use the time I have left this summer to try new media. This week, I tried actual brush and gouache, and got an entire set of brush pens. Not much else to say, it's "exploration".

This was actually an interesting exercise. These are rough drawings in pastel, 20 to 30 minutes each, based on descriptions from a random text generator. What this site did was basically cobble together a description from randomly generated information, things like body shape, anthropomorphic features, demeanor, etc. It's a nice exercise for the imagination. I now have rough color and lighting bases for at least 5 potential paintings.


  1. Love the look of the gouache and brush pen! Liking the creature creations as well, especially the first one! Great stuff Gary!

    1. Thanks Izzy! Hope you're having a FANTASTIC summer.
