Strangers On A Train

“Strangers on the Subway” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • Drawing people quickly as I sit across from them on the train. This may have been on the PATH train, I remember living in the Jersey City loft I lived at. It was so far from the stop, about a mile and a half away.⁠

I dig the woman’s nose and the collar of the old man, how his beard come up over his shirt. Probably 2 separate times, but I like how I drew them next to each, as if they were sitting next to one another. Two people that had nothing to do with each other, in their own world.⁠

Tall Man With The Long Face

“Tall Guy’s Face” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • ⁠Looking like a minion of a super villain. Probably for comic relief, still a bad guy, but good natured.⁠

I look at what I draw after and decide what I made. I rarely plan out my art. It’s just about what makes sense. It’s supposed to be fun, so I have fun with it.⁠

Got My Mojo Hand

“Mojo Hand” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • ⁠a little bit of magic in those hands. Little circles had been showing up in my drawings, symbolizing a mystical quality. A summer drawing, the date is July 22.⁠

Magic, mojo, he discovered some new super power. An ability that gives him confidence. What do you think is going through his head?⁠

Watching From Afar

”From Afar” 🎨 by Dan Victor •⁠ Brushed ink and charcoal on paper. I feel like this is an overweight dude wearing a cape and top hat. He is watching someone passing-by from a distance. Like he is leaning over a railing.⁠

If Only We Swore Nothing

”Spore” 🎨 by Dan Victor •⁠ A watercolor painting that continued my exploration of abstracting organic matter. I went hard on this piece, partially because I wasn’t satisfied with less.⁠

This was made in the mid-2000s. I was still playing with putting words in my art. And if you follow my work, it is something you will see again. I had a tendency the go poetic. So Emo.⁠

No Place Like Home

”Home” 🎨 by Dan Victor •⁠ When I lived in San Diego, I tried to make it my home. Traveling⁠ to get home was always tough too. Even though I’m sitting, it takes a lot out of me to move distances. Not sure if our bodies need to adjust to being in a different place.⁠

I gave this one to my grandparents when they were still alive. Because I never felt more at home than when I was with them, at their house. I spent many summers and weekends there. When I lifeguarded, it was the pool by their house. I could walk there in 10 minutes.⁠

The poem –>

RIGHT AWAY THERE IS A SEVERE AMD INTENSE…
YES, THAT

Done with charcoal, ink and watercolor on paper. When they passed away, my parents sold their house. It was given back to me. It sat in their place for a long time, so maybe it soaked up some of their essence. I like to think so.⁠

What were your grandparents like?⁠

Chump Being Made A Fool

”Constant Differential Dream (Chump)” 🎨 by Dan Victor •⁠ Robot portal as if I was seeing out of someone else’s body the way ‘Being John Malkovich’ shows. But it also is another dimension. My inside control center, with a window looking out. Much like an in-prisoned passenger.⁠

Being John Malkovich is a 1999 American fantasy comedy-drama film directed by Spike Jonze and written by Charlie Kaufman, both making their feature film debut. The film stars John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, and Catherine Keener, with John Malkovich and Charlie Sheen as themselves. The film follows a puppeteer who finds a portal that leads into Malkovich’s mind. ⁠

The poem ->

NEVER BE ASHAMED OF WHAT I AM.⁠
BEAUTIFULLY TROUBLED, WORKING STEADY.⁠
SO CONFUSED. CONSTANT DIFFERENTIAL DREAM.⁠

Chump refers to what is going on outside the port and the inability to make sense it. Believing someone’s lies. Being manipulated. It does not compute.⁠

Pop-Pop and Ben Represent The Generations

“Pop-pop & Ben” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • ⁠My grandfather and nephew when he was still a baby. It was a present for my family on Christmas one year. I gave the original to my brother and prints to the rest, all framed.⁠

My Pop-pop was a huge part of my life and took such good care of me while I was growing up. He taught me how to play chess. He picked me up from the mall with my friends. Took me to go iceskating. We would go bowling. Gave me lifesavers and let me pick out a comic book when he picked up the Sunday paper.⁠

Ben

Bridging the gap between 3 generations. This is his great-grandson. My Pop died shortly after these photos were taken, so I made it more realistic to properly honor my relatives I loved so much. To remind me when I see his face, he loved us even more.⁠

The Best Times of Our Lives Have Not Yet Been Lived

”The Best Times of Our Lives Have Not Yet Been Lived” 🎨 by Dan Victor •⁠ mixed media using collage, pencil, watercolor and a fortune cookie. It has a cinema theme.⁠

2 movies are featured. ‘The Sound of Music‘ & ‘Trouble Every Day’. Using a newsprint program from The Kensington Theater. It was an old place showing classics, foreign & independent films, with an enormous screen.⁠

The Sound of Music was so cool to see on the big screen. The songs with the huge speakers were amazing.⁠

Trouble Every Day is a 2001 French erotic horror film directed by Claire Denis and written by Denis and Jean-Pol Fargeau. It stars Vincent Gallo, Tricia Vessey, Béatrice Dalle, Alex Descas and Marilu Marini. The film’s soundtrack is provided by Tindersticks.⁠

The art is about innocence lost, sexuality and how perverted it can turn over time. Time has a way of changing a person. But realizations can be made. So the best days are still to come. Striving to have the faith in that and ride it out.⁠

Once we fall, we recognize an obstacle before it can occur. We can always make changes.⁠
