A Peek Into The Future!

Here's a sketchbook assignment from my illustration class. We had to listen to a song and draw an image that fit the song. So, naturally, because I wanted to draw something violent, I popped in my Thrice album "Vheissu", and starting imagining real hard to track 3: "The Earth Will Shake". So, if you're feeling savvy, to get the full experience on this one, look up that song and listen to it as you gaze at my unfinished drawing. I also recommend girding your loins prior to listening to that Thrice song, because you might soil your drawers with so much awesomeness flooding your senses. Also, please listen to it at full volume and pretend you've been locked in solitary confinement awaiting your freedom that past ten years. Have fun!

Here's that same drawing, but live-traced in Adobe Illustrator to make it looked inked. When I actually ink it, I'll post that too! It needs clean up first.

It's Actually Happening!!!

Hello folks! That's right, Aaron Kapper is actually following through and starting a blog in order to display some of his slightly pretentious and inscrutably esoteric "artwork", talk about stupid bands he kinda likes (the aquabats, for example), mention comics he likes to read (persepolis anyone?), and hopefully succeed in wasting your time in increasingly elaborate, albeit amusing ways (let')!

All coyness aside, I'm excited to get this thing up and running! If you know me, I hope this blog will allow you to know me better by seeing the pictures I spend hours fretting about and occasionally working on, maybe peeking into my many unfinished sketchbooks, and hopefully not rejecting me as a friend because you think I am actually as weird as you always secretly thought I was. we go!
