[Maise's_Gallery_of_Bad_Fan_Art: First_Exhibition]

Okay, so I realize that I'm basically stealing my own thunder by posting on top of myself. However, ladies and Gabes, I am just too fucking excited to bring this to you after a lot of anticipation and procrastination.

It was probably a few months ago when I realized that, as a fansite, WTC seemed to be...missing a little something. I couldn't quite pinpoint what it was. We had pictures of Trent to drool over, philosophical discussions and profane arguments, poetry and fanfiction, concert reviews, a book club, cover songs--but I realized that the one thing we have not brought to the NINternet is embarrassing fan art.

And I think it's about time.

I fully hope and expect that all of you will send me submissions. Just send your pictures of your paintings and sculptures and needlepoint and other arts and crafts projects to me at tragicmaise@yahoo.com, and perhaps you too will be featured in future exhibitions of the Gallery of Bad Fan Art. But for now, I figured that I would kick things off by showing you a few of my terrible drawings. It's a small gallery right now, but I plan to add more in the future. For this collection, I used the back of scrap pieces of paper at work and a black Bic pen, the only writing utensil I could locate at home. I set up my scanner at home just for this project.

I should probably point out that I CAN'T DRAW TO SAVE MY GODDAMN LIFE. But that doesn't stop me from expressing my love for Trent Reznor in the visual medium. In fact, I realized today that I wasn't particularly good at drawing entire bodies, but fortunately there are lots of pictures of Trent from the shoulders up.

So without further ado, I bring you the very first exhibition in Maise's Gallery of Bad Fan Art:

I think you draw slightly better than I do, actually. I have no Photoshop skills and I can barely draw a straight line, so I don't know if I'll be contributing anytime soon. Unless, of course, silly captions and haiku count. I rock the 5-7-5 right.

Not bad Maise. I couldn't even draw that well. I tend to just draw stick people with a big head

Hey, y'all...I realize the menu options on the photo album are pretty fuct right now...I'm working on it...

Posted by: maise | Aug 19, 2006 7:54:16 PM

Okay, temporary fuctness has been fixed...enjoy!

Posted by: maise | Aug 19, 2006 7:56:57 PM

I love, Love, LOVE the drawings Maise! You're a fucking rockstar I tell ya. BTW...check your inbox. I've got a couple of bad attempts myself. I can't wait to see what everyone does!

Hurry as fast as your little artistic/non-artistic fingers will fly people!

Posted by: Iris | Aug 19, 2006 11:20:53 PM

Oh Maise. I love you so much more than I love Gabriel. I love you nearly as much as I love Trent, but without the desire to ride you hard and put you away wet, of course.

And, I think you draw beautifully... for a dog... with no opposable thumbs.

Needless to say, I'm working on a few masterpieces for you.

Love the pictures! I once commissioned someone to do the T shirt art for a friend of mine stick figure style.

Here's my picture of Trent if he was playing Disco rock star....

Oh yeah everybody!
Ps: I so hope that rocked everyone's socks off. btw....I'm technotarded so I probably didn't make with the working so good skills.

YOu get the jizz of it.... (points up)

Posted by: Prism | Aug 20, 2006 12:10:44 AM

Prism...help me out here. What am I supposed to be seeing? Is this one of those things you gotta be looking at sideways and with your eyes crossed to get?

=(

Posted by: Iris | Aug 20, 2006 12:18:22 AM

I'm so excited that you guys are working on submissions for me!

Iris, the top line is the guy's head, the second line his torso, and the third line his legs. He's doing that John Travolta/"Saturday Night Fever" move.

Posted by: maise | Aug 20, 2006 12:20:55 AM

Ahhh...I see it now! Too cute!

Posted by: Iris | Aug 20, 2006 12:22:25 AM

Yeah total saturday night fever thing. I just can't get it to line up properly in posts without the ....'s before hand. Just imagine it without the ...'s

Thanks, Jane!

Posted by: maise | Aug 22, 2006 8:48:55 AM

Jane, I can't help but notice that the index finger on that is abnormally long, but you've done much better than I with the ASCII art. And I echo the sentiment.

Posted by: emerald527 | Aug 22, 2006 9:35:31 AM

Oh I get it now…it’s a devil hand sign. Jesus Christ I’m slow on the uptake with punctuation pictures. I thought it was an upper torso shot of someone waving their arms in the air and just a little bit of a misshapen head.

Posted by: Iris | Aug 22, 2006 10:19:05 AM

Dude, it's le mano cornuda! THE HORNED HAND!

Posted by: Jane | Aug 22, 2006 10:53:07 AM

Jane, that was awesome. There are even elements of shading, for Christ's sake. Was it Escher that said the human hand is the hardest thing to draw? And that was with a fricking pen, not keys on a keyboard.

You rule!

Posted by: JR | Aug 22, 2006 10:55:38 AM

Great job Jane. I could not even attempt to do punctuation type drawings! ROCK ON!

You guys are the shit. Every single one of yas.

Posted by: Muskles | Aug 23, 2006 5:11:03 AM

Rock on, Iris.

Posted by: Jane | Aug 23, 2006 5:13:57 AM

Cue the Bjork cause it's oh so quiet...shh...shh!

Iris, your NIN logo rocks! Never in a million years could I figure out how to make that work.
