“Dancer’s Poetry” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • Powdered graphite with denatured alcohol and charcoal pencil on paper. About the muse that inspires beauty. The poetry a dancer expresses through movement of their body rather than words.
”Trippy Cat” 🎨 by Dan Victor • Drawing with watercolor pencils. I used my friend’s cat Buddy as a reference.
“Snaggle Tooth” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • How would you like to get ahold of those things? This cat would have to go to a far away place. A face only a mother could love. It’s whats inside that counts.
Ugly is a description people personify rather than to describe ugly behavior, rational thought should prevail. Ugly deeds. An ugly day.
It still sounds cruel to describe mundane things as ugly. It should be reserved for the kind of cruelty that may treat this unattractive person poorly because of the way they look.
“Agro Beak” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • They can get nasty, especially seagulls at the beach that want your sandwich. This is that kind of bird that is safe at a distance, but up close would get spooked. A larger, bouncer-sized bird. Big bird. This bird also has teeth, not just a beak.
Would birds be more aggressive if they had teeth?
“Manic State” ✍🏼 by Dan Victor • It’s a frantic and scary place to be. Even though it feels good at the time, it ultimately leads down the road to confrontation and self-sabotaging behavior.
I feel like this gives a fairly accurate job of conveying the actual state of mind of this side that the bipolar swings. Head going in a million different directions. Moving quickly, sometimes going in circles. Pressured speech, rapid cycling and paranoid.
