Dandelion Gum

So a few years back I heard a song called " Sun Lips " by Black Moth Super Rainbow.
I downloaded thier album, and soon after got hooked. Exploring the evolution of the whole feeling and emotion these sounds brought.
Let's start at square one.
A mysterious persona named "Tobacco" started making noises.
First, as far as I know, was The Allegheny White Fish Tapes.
Which was a ghetto-blasted obscure slew of songs. 
About eating butterflies,  blue seahorses, braided cellophane, and sunburned faces.
Songs that gonna git you brainwashed into doing the " Dead Cowboy Dance "
After that a band of satanic, stomping caterpillars crawled out of the sewers of Pittsburgh
They created melodies for a color spectrum, songs about being magnectic, black rainboe beats, and a beautiful flower child in 256 colors.
That era soon passed. 
Later, in the year 2003 Tobacco, The Seven Fields of Aphelion, Father Hummingbird, Iffernaut, and Power Pill Fist combined their powers to form Black Moth Super Rainbow.
 Their first album, was Falling Through A Field, Soon followed by Start A People.
Next came Dandelion Gum. Which was a masterpiece.
After came Eating Us.
Which personally wasn't my favorite.
Tobacco himself even didn't really like that album.
Tobacco, after Dandelion Gum went solo and released a LP called " Fucked Up Friends" along with a "Fucked Up Friends" vhs/dvd
After that he realeased " Maniac Meat " and also a secret cd-r called " Mystic Thickness " and the " Fucked Up Friends 2 " vhs/dvd.

Theres much more mystery than what's been talked about. I just now decided I'm going to constantly edit this post until it is a megapost. So until next time...

Caterpillar Sarcophagai

'Bout damn time.
It's taken me a very long time to create all those characters.
Well, I'll go into some character background I guess.
If you can see that witch in like the center right.
She's The Wax Witch, a candle sits atop her head, ever burning.
She live's in a cottage called The Crater's Inn, where she shelteres weary travelers and also takes care of an orphan.
She brews stews of mixed blueberries ( to brainwash ), slugs ( to satisfy ), a pinch of algea ( for the aroma ), a clump of sabertooth fur ( to inFURiate), and a pitcher of  peacock saliva ( to hypnotize).

More soon.

New clusterfuck of characters. Soon to be watercoloured. Also a high res scan coming soon.

I once had a dream that I washed up onto the shore of a small island. There was a building of pillars in the center. I walked around the building and there was a massive blue ear hanging from a chain. A large cougar of some kind guarded it. He immediately sees me and lunges. I run to the ear and scramble up. I'm now on a platform, on the second story of the building. A gap lies infront of me, with a blue torso also hanging from a chain. I leap off the ledge and grab onto the statue. I swing to the other side. A bookshelf is directly ahead of me. I walk towards it and suddenly a trap door opens and a fall inside.

I once had a dream where I was riding a really old orange bike through a huge neghiborhood. Two boys chased me on their bikes. I swerved through the streets and came to the slope of a hill. I stuck my foot out and slammed it into the ground turning myself to follow the side of the hill. The boys flew past and into the  belly of the hill. I rode to a house in the distance. Throwing down my bike, I walk inside and find a mail bag with my sketchbook inside. I grab it and go into the bathroom and look in the mirror. Suddenly my teeth begin to fall out and I scramble to pick them up off the floor. After a moment I walk outside and it is night. I look at the sky, in a flash of lucidity, point and say " sun....sun...sun...." the sun comes up.

Past Works

So I was going to seperate my works in posts from early, to most recent but I got a tad bit lazy seeing that its five in the morning. Until I stop being lazy, I'm going to have to link you over to my imgur

Pretty soon here I'll start posting stories from my dream diary I've kept over the last year or so.

I am now going to sleep.

A little about me

Alright, so a little about myself.
I'm Dylan, I was born and raised in Edmond, Oklahoma.
My dad was a painter, my uncle was an illustrator.
Through luck of the gene pool I aquired a little of both their talents.
Sadly though neither of them persued their arts.
Soon I'll be going to college for fine arts, graphic design, and illustration.
I have a lot of old work to show, which will be in my next post.
I have a lot of ideas that will be talked about, along with sketches and such.
I have a lot of my family's artwork that I will be showing because its just a shame eyes have not seen them.
I will have a lot of new work being constantly posted.
Finally, I will post about other things of interest, including politics, other artists, music, video games, and pretty much anything else I find relevent or interesting.
I'm obsessed with subtly psychedellic children's books and movies, and cereal boxes with mazes, mystery and adventure on the back.
There's much more I could say about myself but I'll leave that for other posts.
