The Scene of the Crime

interior space drawn by Joel PriddyBeen hard at work, raisn' babies and drawin' pictures. I have several irons placed in the general vicinity of fire, right now, none of which I can talk about, but I'll share some of the visual tidbits when I can. This one, f'rinstance, would appear to be some sort of, uhm, interior space. In which things might occur. Like people walking in, and having conversations. Maybe they fix themselves a drink, and then sit down to read a magazine. Not even reading, really, just flipping through the pages, grazing the images. Then something—a color, the twist of a model's ankle, the sheen of shampoo-ad hair—inspires reverie of days long past: the petty embarrassments of high school, the first adolescent fumblings at love, the girl with the crooked tooth and green eyes that one never quite built up the nerve to approach. You know, exciting comics stuff like that.

How did you get to be such a bad ass, and where do I sign up? Really cool space Joel.

I learned it on the streets, man. Where else?

Thanks, April!

All is well on the home front. It's been a busy summer. I hope to show of its fruits, soon enough.

Hope all has been well on your end, too!

Is there an extra room in that place?

Joel Priddy said...

Yeah, but the rent is exorbitant, because every time you shift your point of view, I have to redraw it.

chrishaley said...

What if I just sleep a lot and don't look around too much?

Joel Priddy said...

If you promise to wear a blindfold whenever you're home, I think we could cut you a great deal!

Also, the entrance to this fabulous room may look an awful lot like the root cellar at my house.

Adam said...

Well, you know me.

I saw a nicely composed view of an empty room, and my heart went allll a-twitter.

Hope all's well you with you Priddy folks!

Steph said...

Well that's just so dang purdy, priddy! Haven't visited in a while and I'm glad to see I didn't miss too much--looking forward to the fruits of those labors!

Howdy Joel! This is Matt from your illustration class (Mathis misspelled) Here is a link to my blog. Alone you are invincible, together we can fight illness and orphans and Barnum and Bailey's Circus. You will do all of the work of course.
