Just for fun: a past collection of rough dootles/ automatic drawings by " M.A. Sheen"

I've been working on wrapping up several paintings & will be uploading them soon. I also have started "Eight" the third and last animation from the album Fur State by The Boxing Lesson. 

In the meantime, I thought I would share some very old, very rough, sometimes amusing (well to me anyway) and generally pretty neurotic seeds to a lot of later dreamscape style paintings.

  M.A. Sheen: rough dootles/automatic drawings from early/mid 20's

 The name M.A. Sheen has nothing to do with current Sheens in the media. My best friend used to call me The Machine. I would covertly make these kind of very rough, neurotic but fun doodles/stream of consciousness/ automatic drawings/ scrawlings, whatever you want to call them while pursuing infinitely more refined oil paintings from observation. So back then, I compiled the best of them in a folder with the pseudonym M.A. Sheen.

Earlier today a friend shared a picture of a peculiar fish tongue stealing parasite, which made me think of some of my past pics in the set. They were at the top of my storage chest so I thought I'd archive them, if only for my own amusement. Actually one is the basis of a more refined painting I'm finishing now.

  1. I still have my RARE and perhaps only other copy of M.A. SHEEN folder in the entire universe! It is mocha-java fueled brilliance!
