Lips. Cast. Hat. Drawings on his pants. Everything about this photo…
…Heart’s goin’ all ‘flippity-flop’. ghhhhhhh…
AND YOU, TYLER. GOOD LORD I LOVE YOU FOR YOUR GOOFYNESS.
Got a lot of prelim rough pencil draft ideas for the next in the series of Golfwang sketches I’ve been doing. …I usually illustrate a couplet or a few bars of a track that really gets my visual imagination churning my brain up with excitement.
NVM! …I totally thought of EXACTLY what I’m going to do. Sweetfuck! I love it when the idea just comes in all snappy and figures itself out for me. Did a rough prelim, feel super stoked to bring it to follow through cuz I have that great feeling that it’s going to look like exactly what I have in my head…! Swag.
…I’ll give you ONE hint…
“I like cheese.”

I CUT MY WRISTS AND PLAY PIANO CUZ I’M SO DEPRESSED…
Tron Cat Bastard, by Nursehella/Danielle Prokop 03/12
Another in my Golfwangsketch series. It’s my Tron Cat again this time… when I was thinking about this one I had this image in my mind listening to Bastard, right - it’s just sort of how Tyler’s launching into his “monologue-rap”….
This is what the devil plays before he goes to sleep
Some food for thought some food for death, go ‘head and fuckin’ eat
My father’s dead well I don’t know, we’ll never fuckin’ meet
I cut my wrists and play piano cause I’m so depressed
Somebody call the pastor, this bastard is so possessed
This meetin’ just begun, nigga I’m Satan’s son
…Bastard is one of my very favorite OF tracks. I relate to it a lot I suppose… the same way that I kinda figure when you start talking to therapists there’s this feeling they either are going to disbelieve you, or take what you say way too literally… or how much of what’s true you actually tell them because (like in the Tron Cat track) you got this feeling that at the end they’re gonna be all “…WHAT THE FUCK??” lol…fuckin’ had experience with all that, I suppose. This is the best therapy of all to me — making art. Of any kind. When I’m drawing or rapping or playing guitar. Be your own therapist, your inspirations are your therapy.
Anyhow, this is about 15 hours of work (not consecutive) over the course of a month. Hand drawn, did the rough pencils in my sketchbook. Outline with Faber Castel Pitt Pens(waterproof), first inking with statedtler fineliners (non-waterproof) using water to blend, repeat process. Combine layers of water color with pilot fineliner black ink pen, water to blend. Repeat process. 0.5 tip paintbrush + white acrylic paint thinned to a gouache to highlight, final outline with pitt pens again. Slight fix in photoshop from where the page ripped at the bottom… I seriously need a sketchbook with thicker paper. That’s on the agenda for today…
Next idea I have is a sketch using the lyrics from ANALOG for inspiration… meet me by the lake….
This Kid Hopped Out Of The Car As We Were Skating Down Some Random Street From Fitzroy. I Greeted Him Like I Would Greet Anyone Else, With A Sup Dude And A Head Nod Indicating That This Was Really Awkward For Me. As He Started Talking, I Noticed His Voice Started Cracking And Sounded Milky As If He Was Mumbling A Shitty Song. He Passed His Phone To His Sister Who Took The Photo. As I Put My Arm Around Him For The Photo I Felt His Heart Beat Threw His Shoulder. I Looked At Him, His Eyes Started To Water Up. I Told Him ‘Dude, Dont Do This, Its Gonna Make It Awkward As Shit’ But The Time I Could Finish The Sentence, The Photo Was Taken. He Told Me RADICALS Was His Favorite Song And Stood In Shock Until His Mom Told Him It Was Time To Dip. I Gave Him Like 3 High 5’s And Dipped. That Shit Was Awkward As Fuck….I Dont Know If It’s Because He Started Crying And Shit, Or If It Was Because I, Tyler, Meant Something To A Complete Stranger. Either Way, Melbourne Is The Shit! ( fuck i forgot this niggas name, i told you i would post this photo, but i forgot your name nigga so, here) Sorry For Clogging GW With This Shit.
Fucking beautiful. This shit made ME almost want to cry. Damn… Tyler, you’re awesome. Fucking real. Thank you.
…my interpretation of Wolf Haley, I guess - I’ve put some concept pics up before. This one’s the counterpart to my Tron Cat character drawing who wears a similar mask (cat instead of wolf, obvs) and almost identical outfit, different colors. I’m not a HUUUUGE fan of this piece, I never intended it to get so much detailing - it was originally just kind of a concept doodle that took off. About 10 hours on this, all in total? Wanted to try one of my Golfwangsketches in a more monochrome color palette so I only used 3 colors here - I kinda like the results, accenting the blue vans and shits like that…
Anyhow, I used - staedtler fineliner red black and ocean blue, faber castel pitt pens waterproof, watercolor paints and white acrylic for accenting, pilot fineliner black smudged with water to shade.
…Somebody Tell Satan That I want My Fucking Swag Back.
Fucked with a shirt from some mall-store to make it a Tron Cat shirt…this was before I saw OF last year, I was waiting to cop a shirt since I’m not able to do net-shopping. So I made my own.

THIS IS SICK !
… i get real hyped when i see that peeps dig this, i wasn’t expecting that. thought i’d blog it again, cuz i’m just about ready to submit a couple new ones. sometimes i REALLY MISS THE ORIGINAL of this drawing…fuckin labor of love!!!! like 20 hours! i only finished the same day of the OF show in vancouver where i gave it to Tyler. but DAMN, fuck that….giving it away as a present felt SUPER RAD — i’m so glad i didn’t cop out and get insecure! GO 2012! FUCK YOUR INSECURITIES AND BE AWESOME FOREVER!
EVERYTHING IS BETTER NOW.
