HELP!! The_Cap and I are imprisoned in the lair of THE EVIL LORD CONDOR and forced (until we are summoned by the inevitable pillow of slumber ) to play:
>>>>>>>>>>>> THE CAP GAME <<<<<<<<<<<<
Guess the song artist and get 1 point.
Points carried over if song unidentified.
Monthly winners get some postcards and a small drawing (my choice) sent to them anywhere in the world. Good luck :)
Thank you to the generous and talented Benon at:
Thanks to all the givers for sharing your time and playing along. If people like what I am doing I will do it more.
Email is on my site:
Jag är här för en bra tid, inte på länge.
Saya di sini untuk waktu yang baik, bukan untuk waktu yang lama.
Я хорошо провел время здесь, не надолго.
Pasé un buen rato aquí, no por mucho tiempo.
ਮੈਂ ਇਥੇ ਇੱਕ ਚੰਗੇ ਸਮੇਂ ਲਈ ਹਾਂ, ਜ਼ਿਆਦਾ ਸਮੇਂ ਲਈ ਨਹੀਂ.
Tukaj sem že lep čas, ne dolgo.
Ich bin zu ihm gekommen, um eine gute Zeit zu haben, aber ich werde nicht lange hier sein.
أنا هنا لأحصل على وقت جيد ، ليس لفترة طويلة.
Momentu onak egitera etorri naiz, ez denbora luzez.
ഞാൻ ഇവിടെ ഒരു നല്ല സമയമാണ്, വളരെക്കാലമല്ല.
Sono qui per un bel momento, non molto tempo.
म यहाँ छु एक राम्रो समय को लागी, लामो समय को लागी होइन।
Jestem tu przez dobry czas, nie długo.
나는 오랫동안이 아니라 좋은 시간을 보내고 있습니다.
Je suis ici pour un bon moment, pas pour longtemps.
من برای یک زمان خوب اینجا هستم ، نه مدت طولانی.
Uzun zamandır değil, iyi bir zaman için buradayım.
Dumating ako dito upang magkaroon ng isang magandang oras, hindi para sa isang mahabang panahon.
כאן לזמן טוב, לא הרבה זמן.
Her til en god tid, ikke så lenge.
Почувствувам да се забавувам, но нема да бидам тука многу долго време
Apha ixesha elifanelekileyo, hayi ixesha elide.
ଏଠାରେ ଏକ ଭଲ ସମୟ, ଦୀର୍ଘ ସମୟ ନୁହେଁ |
Hapa kwa wakati mzuri, sio muda mrefu.
Ήρθα εδώ για να περάσω καλά, όχι για πολύ καιρό.
دلته په ښه وخت کې ، ډیر اوږد ندي.
मैं अच्छा समय बिता रहा हूं, बहुत लंबा समय नहीं है।
Here for a good time, not a long time.
DRAWING COMMISSIONS - I am not really here for that. I am into drawing my own stuff and sharing music. BUTI know some will ask me, so I made it easy:
There are 2 prices: $40 for a drawing less than 30 minutes / $80 for more than 30 minutes.
Email me an etransfer OR for streamlabs hit the above button OR paypal to
Sorry no lemon donos for drawing requests.
This stuff is strange. Intended to be experienced as sound sculptures. Preferably as a whole and in sequential order.
The_Cap has nothing to do with it.
Weird abstract video mashups.
Only God can judge :)
Here is a place to tack on a FAQ because I don't want to make another header that says FAQ. Pretty obvious that between drawing and running the CAP GAME there is not a lot of time to answer questions like these:
HOW OFTEN DO YOU STREAM? Random.
WHERE? Lord Condor's evil lair. No, really I am in Vancouver BC Canada. I am from California and Alberta and lived and worked all over the world.
WHATS WITH THE CAP? I bought a hoodie a few years ago for fun and wore it on stream a few times last year and got the nick name The_Cap by Dlive streamer Mgigity who was rocking the Spidey mask. I then started to use the streaming gear for some other projects. I thought I would put it all away. Then some cap game players on the
stream expressed interest in playing a bit more on the week nights so I thought, as it's inventor, I could do a cap game now and then after Benon's much more professional show :)
IS THE CAP YOUR FAVOURITE COMIC CHARACTER? Not really. Millers Dark Knight is still so revolutionary his Hard Boiled series with Geoff Darrow was comic perfection. Silver Surfer would be the collest powers but his story is pretty tragic. The Cap was the first Jack Kirby comic I owned at about 3 years old. He is such a ridiculous piece of american propaganda that he needs to be deconstructed in every way. Also his alter ego is a comic book illustrator. Hmmmm.
DID YOU EVER DO COMICS? Yes. I have been hired to do comics. I have done sequential narrative projects and storyboards for animation and films. generally most of my drawings are a kind of comic books with out the books :)
AGE? Borderline Boomer. Not yet fossilized.
MARRIED GANG? Yes. She is sleeping. Yet another reason for airplane mode. "It's about the music man."
WHEN DID YOU BEGIN DRAWING? The womb. I moved a lot when I was a kid and practiced a lot with comics etc. My mom was a gifted painter encouraging realism and impressionism. Dad was sheetmetal biker turned me onto Crumb, Griffin, Williams etc. I got into skateboard graphics before working as a tattoo artist and later multimedia (remember CD ROMS?). After stint in art school I got caught up doing murals and general freelancing.
HOW DID YOU START GETTING WORK? I got a lot of work through "exposure" kind of gigs. Its sucks but you gotta do it. I took the largest ones I could find. Networked. This was before instagram so you actually had to go out on the scene to hustle. Get cards out people. Sell posters and zines and framed photo copies on the street. Post cards are even better. Put your earnings back into the biz. Take that sketchbook out and draw in it. Get it seen. Find projects which will be seen by the most eye balls. Advice is to tread cautiously and ALWAYS ask for some sort of compensation. Art does not come from nowhere like ALL non-artists tend to believe. It is the physical representation of our souls. You are a source of that power and your need other resources to power that power and those resources cost. Also you owe it to all artists to get paid as much as you can get. So get that paper son.
ARE YOU A "PRO" ARTIST? Been getting paid for doing projects since my first trade for a drawing of Mike Vernon of the Calgary Flames for some Hot Tamales about 30 years ago in grade school. I have been paying the rent from selling my skills since summer 2006. Does that make me a pro? Maybe. A pro at working hard to hardly work. I could be more ambitious or greedy but I like the sweet spot I got. Difficult profession to categorize.. I sell some drawings and work on projects that take months to plan so streaming is a FUN way to share the stuff I do.
HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT MUSIC? I was a grunge/metal bassist for a decade in my younger times and had an avant garde jazz DJ cousin whose collection helped me navigate the vast collection of the Bibliotheque de Nationale in Montreal, QC.
WHERE IS THE MUSIC COMING FROM? My Spotify. I set up a system to arbitrarily generate music mixes based on over 200 Spotify mixes from my paid account. Covers a pretty wide array but I have consciously steered it into recognizable mainstream content to improve the cap game. Am I allowed? Well I have not found the actual word NO in the literature. Just don't narc me out. SHOOSH Benny!!!
HOW CAN I GET BETTER AT DRAWING?
The short answers:
1) Practice at least a half hour everyday.
2) Learn to accept mistakes as the most integral part of the process. Create as many mistakes as you can possibly make. It will teach you what your more accurate drawing looks like.
3) Destroy ALL value judgements. Just because its an Idea does not make it a good idea. Start by actually asking yourself what "better"means to you.
There is more to it than that but you will have to find that out.
DO YOU DRAW EVERYDAY? When I was younger and hungry to improve, yes I did draw everyday. It always came to me automatically. I was drawn to drawing. Now I draw when I feel like it. I will turn down a project even if the offer is good. If you ignore warnings with a client it will turn into a mess. Just like when you ignore things that do not work in a drawing and don't pay attention to details and the mistakes it will become a mess. If you ignore red flags the project becomes a mess that burns even more resources to recover. That applies to your own creative brain. If you get push back there is always a reason. Most problems are the result in logic being betrayed. Again I go into it more in the PDF.
1) Be kind.
2) Don't eat what you can't see.
3) Don't take advice from some boomer cosplayer doodling in the middle of the night.
