The theme selected for week one-eighty-four of Operation Graphite will be: Insomnia.


There are plenty of reasons why one might not be able to get a good nights sleep. Really, when you think about it, I’m amazed anyone is able to fall asleep at night. Rising oceans, the impending robot uprising, carnivorous pack hunting squirrels, the economic recession, regular unemployment, the oligarchy, dust mites, that constant tapping on your window in the middle of the night, did I do my homework / did I prepare for tomorrow’s meeting? North Korea, the Satan worshipers next door, where red food coloring comes from, the slowly creeping realization that you will never accomplish anything and you will amount to nothing more than a bland mindless consumer… oh and this.

I have my own source of insomnia, or will have more of it. My wife is pregnant and our second son is due any… minute… now. This will, 1) throw the first child into a jealousy spiral, 2) keep everyone in the house up for the next few months.

We will see if I am still able to keep up with this whole drawing blog thing. Unbearable mediocrity, thats another thing that keeps me up at night.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Insomnia.

All art work is due 9 P.M. PST on Friday, 9.11.15. Submissions will be published the weekend of 9.12.15
