Doodle, crayon on paper table cloth, 4 by 7 inches, 2009
This is, without a doubt, the worst drawing I have ever put on this site. On Thursday night I went to Pauline's Pizza in San Francisco. I like it there because the food is good and they let you draw on the tables (you can see previous examples here and here). Throughout the meal, I aimlessly drew a face and then a head. My drawing began to look a little like a troll doll, so I tried to make it into a real troll, but it was too late, the crayon marks wouldn't obey. I ended up with a freakish man-child that is completely unpleasant to look at.
I came home and tried to make the drawing look better by employing some Photoshop trickery. I placed the little guy into traditional troll habitats to see if it would help, but no luck, it is still terrible art.
I've gotten into the habit of putting everything I create directly onto this site, no matter the quality or time invested. Maybe this isn't a good idea.
From now on, this is as bad as I will let the artwork get. To achieve this new quality standard and still keep the site afloat, we'll all have to work a little harder. If you have some art hidden under your bed or if you know someone with interesting art that they haven't shown, steal it or scan it and send it to email@example.com. Please remember, the art must be nicer looking than this nightmarish crayon troll baby.
UPDATE: I just tried to make the troll cool by adding sunglasses and a thumbs-up, but it still stinks. I give up. (It actually looks a lot like Kim Jong Il.)
UPDATE 2: Oh my god. What if I've completely run out of ideas?
