Week two-thirty-one of Operation Graphite – theme: Work.

Shock - Pick Axe

As I fill out my unemployment forms, it certainly adds a depressing closure to this weeks Grey OP, or is it Gray Op – I really don’t know. Everyone says enjoy your time off, as if it is a vacation. It is just like a vacation though, but one where you are haunted minute by minute about your impending financial disaster, where feelings of inadequacy, worthlessness and absolute dread wash over you like El Nino waves against the CA coast circa 1997. Yeah, its a fucking blast. But going to work, that’s almost as bad.

Work, get it? cause after Friday there won’t be any. Yes, once again I will be joining the Unemployed. Working in entertainment means it is a pretty common thing, that still doesn’t make it feel better. I could have had this theme be about the lack of work, or the waves of crippling depression and feeling of absolute worthlessness that are associated with job hunts by those with few skills, but why dwell on all that negativity? I spend enough time regretting all my life choices already. No, lets think about getting to work, building shit, or whatever the hell you do to pay for your insanely high rent.

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

All art work is due 9 P.M. PST on Friday, 8.12.16. Submissions will be published the weekend of 8.13.16

Week one-eleven of Operation Graphite – theme: Weird Coworker.

Shock - Sea Shanties

I’m not saying your weird coworker is unlikeable, I’m not saying that weird is bad, but that one guy (or girl) at work is a wee bit strange. Maybe the workplace is better for it.

Shock – That guy who is obsessed with Sea Shanties

The theme selected for week one-eleven of Operation Graphite will be: Weird Coworker.

We’ve all had them, those odd coworkers that ether disrupt, or make our job bearable. They might be weird, odd, crazy, quirky, or just plain silly. Maybe you endure them, maybe you pick on them, maybe you encourage them, or maybe you are the Weird Coworker? At someplace so awful like work, why on Earth would you want to act normal?

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

All art work is due on Thursday, 4.17.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday, 4.18.13
