Tumblr: The Key & Peele Sketch

(Source: theblackrichardcurtis, via boiledleather)

My work doodle of Sailor Venus went astray at some point…
This was a fun painting done for my painting class, going to be teaching it in a couple of weeks.

I’ve got a notion about ASOIAF that hasn’t really come across any other commentary that I have seen. I think all these people who are obsessed with prophesy and who will be “the heads of the dragon” or Azor Ahai are very much missing one of the underlying themes of the novels: that there is no ultimate good and evil, only human agency and our moral judgments thereof as observers. Magic is just another natural force in this world that people bend to their own purposes. Divine inspiration is really just people thinking stuff based on what other people said, or insanity, or drug influence, or interference in the magical force field, or some other human manipulating them by magical means, not a real message from some real god. So those people who believe that Daenerys and Jon and Tyrion will climb on the dragons’ backs and burn away the Others, perhaps valiantly sacrificing themselves in the process, are probably mistaken. It’s too typical, too good vs. evil. I would view it as a narrative failure. It would make more sense to me if Jon dies and stays dead, Daenerys becomes a tyrant in her war against Aegon and the “usurpers,” and maybe by accident the Others get destroyed in the ensuing massacre, while the rest have their ideals shattered and then try to pick up the pieces out of the smoke and debris. And Tyrion’s dragon dreams, and the mystery of Jon’s parentage, and all the prophesies, will prove to be red herrings, or foreshadowing, but never actual clues as to the end of the story. There won’t be an easy summary of who did what and who was good and who saved everyone, otherwise it would not take two more books to write.

This is the most clear description of creativity I have ever heard. Really, really valuable.

Sketchbook doodles. Hair band guitarist, an old character, the Rose Knight from the Warlords & Sellswords illustration, and Sherlock Holmes from a still of the old Russian miniseries.

Dune

I succumbed to the siren song of Dune and was dashed upon its rocks like so many concept artists before me. If you’d like to know more about these designs, I’ve written up some descriptions here.

SAM SPRATT’s 2014 PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY
In short: Reblogs and Likes of this picture are each entries to have me paint a personalized portrait of you.
In slightly less short: Longtime followers are no stranger to these contests but for those new to this or me, I’m an illustrator (my work: www.samspratt.com ) who has worked with National Geographic, Janelle Monáe, Childish Gambino, FX, Game Informer, Angry Birds, Wall Street Journal, among others – creating album and magazine covers, advertisements, and posters – but a big part of me being able to do all that has been you sharing my work over the last 3 years. As my small way of paying that forward, I’d like to paint for one of you as I would for my clients, but ya know … for free. Maybe you want that regal portrait of you in a velvet smoking jacket to hang over your mantel, maybe one of your loved one, favorite character, or perhaps you just want me to paint you however I see fit (warning: this will 100% involve dinosaurs) – if you can think it, I’ll probably paint it – and I’ll work with you to make it something special.
As usual I’ll also be sending signed prints and haikus about your eyebrows to extra winners. The contest will stay open for about a week then I’ll randomly draw winners. You can enter on facebook and twitter for extra entries but be cool and don’t spam your followers.
