West Coast


Pencil, paper and paint. Pretty traditional media there.


Some arrogant West-Coast rapper from the 90's. With a mullet.
Does anyone recognise him ? Ice something or other.

No. But he looks a bit like me in the morning when I've Been over-heating.

Krimo said...

Ice T... A fairly decent actor nowadays.
Great stuff, Ché!

Crabtree said...

Il lui manque un je ne sais quoi... ??

A si le chapeau !

PI said...

I've seen that little moue on Jimi's lips I fancy.
I can't do accents.

IBM - I've re-edited the picture. It was hurting my eyes too, it should look less sunburnt now.

Krimo - Thanks for the info.
I'm thinking Othello, Ice-T as a famous rapper, with Kate Winslet as his trophy white 'ho Desdemone, and Anthony Hopkins as Iago, his manager.

Crabtree - il lui manque aussi la diablesse pneumatique, le veston-toile-de-latex et les dents de vampire.
Je parie que quand il est a la maison, tranquille, il regarde des rediffusions d'"Apostrophes" en sirotant une tisane.

PI - If you can imitate a cow, you can pronounce it fine.
Even Mick couldn't moue like Jimi.
On the other hand, Jimi could never have graduated from the LSE.

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Neither did Mick. He dropped out before finals. I was lucky enough to work there for a while and saw on his file (or what's left of it) a letter from his tutor to the Dean dated 1963, saying "Jagger tells me he wants to abandon his studies to be some kind of performing artiste .... harrumph ... of course the boy will regret it, but he seems to have his mind made up ... harrumph harrumph ... " On the next page is a news clipping saying "Superstar Jagger once student at LSE".

That is only barely recognizable as Ice-T by the way. For a start he's not red.

Ché l'écossais said...

Mmh.
But did you know that that tutor later went on to manage the ENTIRE financial services arm of Barclays (East Sussex) 1965-1971 ?

See, if you work hard, you CAN achieve your dreams.*

It's the accents on paper - as it were - I can't do - by mouth I'm OK. I know there is a way if I root amongst the drop down menus, but I'm lazy.

Ché l'écossais said...

Oh right, I get it!
Actually it's pretty simple PI, just hold down the alt key and press 130 on the keypad = é
alt + 135 = ç
alt + æ
etcetera.

Here's the extended ascii table :

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

But there's no é in moue. It rhymes with poo, not with roué.

Pat, You can also shortcut to the French keyboard by doing shift + alt, the little box down in the bottom right hand corner should shift from EN to FR. Do it again to shift back. Then you have to type out the full keyboard lower and upper case to see what the keys represent on the FR keyboard.

Don't ask a techie, he'll always give you the long way round.

Kim Ayres said...

Doesn't matter what I press with the alt key, I don't get anything. Do you need a fancy keyboard for it?

Jimmy Bastard said...

I'm impressed indeed with your artwork sir! It was a field I would very much liked to have explored.

Bravo.

PI said...

Thanks Che and Daphne. I think that's why I don't bother but I'll copy and paste and give it a go.

Ché l'écossais said...

Kim - that's wierd. Shambled 'round the 'net a bit, can't see what the problem would be.
An intriguing problem.

Jimmy - cheers!
I hear you're a bit of an expressionist yourself, though razors and faces are not tools I've ever worked with myself.
Think I might have seen some of your work displayed 'round Glasgow, last time I was there.

PI - happy to be of assistance - but whatever you do, don't follow Dafftneys advice.
Installing the french keyboard and methodically hitting 300 keys to memorise what they do is some new definition of the word "shortcut" I was hitherto not aware of.

I'm loving your artwork Mr Scots.. and I'm now very confused about the French keyboard thing...
