Splotchy Artist

From a psychological standpoint, let's step back and wonder what it means when an artist decides to make one monster per day and display such curdled remnants of the brain on a blog entitled Stefan G. Bucher's Daily Monster. Surely this is indicative of a kind of "letting go". Being able to present your inner demons in a public might be a sort of catharsis... that is, if the monsters weren't so cute at the end.

I've been linking to a lot of artists just doing their thing lately. This one I like if only because Mr. Bucher uses a range of different pen and inks, which I find particularly interesting. Go wild.

What I love about this guy's work - he actually starts each Monster by spilling a blob of black ink on the paper and then uses a straw to "blow" a mess of ink - which he then uses as the basis for the monster.

Oh good. I'm glad you explained that. The process seems to have been sped up in the video and I couldn't figure out how he got those cool splotches. A straw never came to mind as the answer. Well called.
