Art [Personal] - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Art [Personal]
I always feel weird posting a finished piece along with a doodle because I feel one gets overshadowed by the other, but since these both started off as doodles and I only took one a little bit further, I guess its okay.

"Into The Wind" - Mechanical Pencil

This started off as a doodle in my sketchbook that got bigger, and bigger, and bigger until it took over an entire page. There was lots of erasing and redrawing. Fortunately Mochi and Katze were there to smack me and tell me to leave it alone.

I might have this available at the MFF art show. I say "might", even though I fully intend to have it for sale, but I have an aversion to promising anything to being a "sure thing" when airline travel is involved. Maybe this windy wolf is conjuring up safe air for me to travel on? I hope so.


"Ass Up" - sketchbook doodle
Would have put the "Muttropolis" title on this one but its not really a comic so much as its just a doodle.

Skorzy and I have been taking a lot of mini-roadtrips together the past month and a half and I bring along my music. He doesn't always like or is as familiar with my musical tastes, but he tolerates it pretty well and we have some similar interests.

There's one song that Vantid and I would always make fun of whenever we were in the car and that's Baracuda's "Ass Up" but when you listen to the lyrics "Put your ass in the air, put your ass up in the air" It somewhat sounds like "Put GIRAFFES in the air, put GIRAFFES up in the air", so the altered lyrics stuck.

I forgot that Skorzy hadn't gotten the memo.

My friends hated it when I infected them with the "carry a laser gun" alternative lyrics to Mr. Mister's "Kyrie"...

Haha! Skorzy and I frequently debate on whether or not Jimmy Buffet stepped on a "pop top" or a "pop pop" in Margaritaville. Cuz while niether would really blow out a flip flop unless you really tried, both can be irritating on your feet. Pop pops are itchy (those little things on the ends of kelp) and pop tops will cut you, oldschool.

P always sang it, "stepped on a Pop Tart", and I wondered how THAT could possibly blow out a flip-flop!

HA! A friend of mine legitimately thought those /were/ the lyrics to the song ;)

Haha, I also always imagine happy giraffes prancing up in the air!

OH MY GOD THEY ACTUALLY MADE THAT? We totally came to that conclusion on our own, I am so amused that YTMND has it :D Although, not surprised.

Yeah I also heard it without knowing there was a ytmnd XD Karpour told me about that! Seriously though, somebody should make an animated flash out of it. Which probably already exists as well.

In Dutch the term for misheard lyrics is 'Mama appelsap' (mama applejuice', referring to what EVERYONE hears in Michael Jackson's Wanna be startin' somethin'. That's what you get if Dutch is your first language, especially if you don't speak English that well.
This is one of my favorites :D

Haha that's funny XD When Vantid and I listen to E Nomine (German and some Latin mixed in) we hear all sorts of things like "Oxy Money Pool Party", so I hear ya on the language barrier thing.

Wait, it's ass up in the air? The only version I've ever heard is "hands up in the air". Wow, I never knew the lyrics had been cleaned up for radio. I feel like I've been ripped off! :(
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 1st, 2010 05:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
They had a clean version? I've only heard this one!

I guess so! Ah well, I know of a few songs that were pg13'd for radio so this doesn't surprise me.

'Scuse me while I kiss this guy.

Bwaahaha I will never hear that song the same way again.

Also, love the expression on your singing-face in the sketch!

Oh! This wolf picture is so beautiful!!! :D I simply love it. However, I don't agree about that point: a doodle doesn't get overshadowed by a finished piece, they're always indipendent things to my eyes (just my personal opinion ;) ... Eheheh!

There's a bath room on the right.

Island of Seals!
Slow Motion Walter... Fire Engine Guy!

My sister and I thought that in the Wallflowers song "One Headlight" he sang "the incinerator/put it all together..." (not "me and Cinderella")

---- I love your comics! Such great expressions. And the fur on the wolf is fantastic! I love to see sketches and doodles and pencil art - thanks for posting! :)

"Shamu! In mysterious waaaays" Man I used to buy all those misheard lyrics books. I loved "funny" books as a kid (this of course was before the internet invented the Cheeseburger Network, it was mostly information at that point...useless, useless information!)

Hhahaa. Here's another fun video of people that interpret that song as you do. XD


PS: That sketch of you singing to it makes my face grin like crazy. XD
