In Trondheim by Nippip
In Trondheim
This is a drawing I did a while back, it's from one of my favourite places in my home town, Trondheim. What I'm drawing at the moment seems to be taking some time so I thought I'd upload this mean while. It's a scan and without blowing my own trumpet I wouldn't say it does the thing justice. The reason why I like this bridge so much is that I always get the sense of walking into a Victorian novel when I approach it.  Its right in the centre of town with one of the central cities most traced roads running over it yet it feels completely cut off from the modern world and very few people pass under it. That is because it doesn't led to anywhere in particular, apart from an hotel and some really weird shops, that on can't reach more quickly by going over it.  Therefore those who do take that route have made the active decision to do so and departed from the main road just for the experience of that bridge.  (Or they might be staying at the ugly hotel, but if I bring that up it'll lose all its poetry. Trondheim has got lots of these old fashioned locked off places in the city centre and that's what I love about my city, I will always feel at home here, or so I like reckon.

Rik Mayall Presents -Briefest Encounter by Nippip
Rik Mayall Presents -Briefest Encounter
This is a recreation in pastel of a screenshot from The episode of "Rik Mayall Presents" called "Briefest Encounter" by far my favourite episode, creepily delicious and also the funniest of the lot, but in a dark twisted way. It instantly made me want to draw from it, or rather paint, thing is I'm too lazy for painting ... Pastel is the go between.  Anyhoo ... The cinematography is amazing this shot's got a real Joseph Wright feel to it. 

It was a bitch to make, I had to re do most of it after I finished as I realised I'd have to fix the proportions, it's still slightly of, but I'm not going to spent more time on it. 

Materials: Oil pastel as a base with dry pastel for colour and shading for the most part. There is also some black and brick coloured charcoal.

Bernard -Back Books by Nippip
Bernard -Back Books
I really wanted to do something in charcoal and I was re-watching Black Books so this happened. There is some white pastel in it as well I like they way they translate digitally, very photo friendly materials as they don't reflect. I love Black Books I have been watching a lot of Graham Linehans other work recently and it's not nearly as good. It is just fine, not bad I just can't say that I like his writing that much his set-up and characters often feels uninspired, not uninspired trough and trough, jest a bit, meh. There is noting actually wrong with it though, just not my cuppa. Black Books in brilliant though and it's only co written with Graham Linehan, and only for the first series, Dylan Moran, whom I love, is the main writer it was his idea.  I knew Dylan Moran from stand-up long before I knew that Black Books even existed. For anyone who likes Black Books I'd recommend watching him, he is shockingly like Bernard, at times.

When he's happy looks insane -Bottom by Nippip
When he's happy looks insane -Bottom
I was inspiered to make this when listening to Even Flow by Pearl Jam. The song is really about homeless people but one lyric reads "He can't help when he's happy looks insane" which is just all to descriptive of Richie. This loony face is from the episode culture, but not an exact screen-cap.

I went for an almost cartoon like madness, I'm trying to think of improvements so if anyone's got any thoughts I'm happy to hear them. 

The materials used are: Ink in different colours, both watered out and applied with pencil and, normally, with quill. There is also a combination of oil pastel and dry pastel, mainly dry on the face, and charcoal.

He’s not is the bottom line here. I don’t know what to feel on a day like this. When I look at the whirlwind my life has been since he died I'm left thinking that I would be someone else were it not for that fact. I also think that I like the me I am lot better than the me I would have been if the death of Rik hadn't stirred my soul and made me re-evaluate  myself. In this past year I have laughed and cried more than ever before. The most important thing though is that I have learnt to gamble and just go for it and hurl myself in to the world. It’s ok not to be perfect it’s even ok to be a complete and utter tit as long as you know you are and as long as you accept and love that about yourself and don’t blame others for having those same deficiencies.  It’s ok to be happy, I'm almost always happy in a world where lots of people are depressed and there is nothing wrong with that It’s effing marvellous. Kindness is important and being humble in your own way is a virtue, I think I had forgotten that. I will never forget it now.  All men are equal and therefore no one can ever be your genuine superior.  Equality, opportunity, wisdom, freedom, love.  Thank you Rik I will never be the same.  I will have myself a fucking good life better than I would if you still had yours weirdly. I never knew you but I miss you and my heart goes out to your family and friends, Ade in particular. He doesn't seem to be doing too well, but what would I know. I've got me now and thank you for that.

I will be uploading loads of Rik Mayall stuff as soon  as I've got my Photoshop back so just clench your buttocks people. 

  • Mood: Sympathy
  • Reading: The Rik Mayall Bigger Than Hitler Better than ...
  • Watching: Bottom, Accident
