SISSYDUDE WORK IN PROGRESS: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRESS IN THE WORLD

IMG_4090

If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to lately and why I’m mostly posting naked men and not as much eclectic retro/ vintage stuff as I used too… well, it’s because I’m actually busy using my mind and making my own art. I’m being analog! Thought I’d share this work in progress. I’ve been slowly working on it for like 8 months (with 1 year or more of procrastination). It’s called “The Most Beautiful Dress In The World.” I’m loving how it’s evolving so far. I’m working with a ton of beautiful vintage items like Victorian/ Edwardian lace, 1920’s beadwork, 20th Century feathers, silk flowers, velvets, Christmas decorations etc. So lucky to work with such beautiful pieces courtesy of my boss man and friend Juul Haalmeyer.

I kinda know what the piece is all about but I won’t share my thoughts until it’s finished. I’m also working on 10 (on #7 as we speak) vintage Valentine candy box collages for 10X10, a photographic group show in Toronto (during Pride Week). I’m really busy being creative… and it feels so GREAT.

If you’re interested in what I’m up to and want to see pics of me and Sebby (((daily))) just follow me on Instagram @sissydude. XXXO J

CREATIVE MISSTEP: “THE FORCE IS GOING BACK TO SLEEP”

 

jswtumblrSTARWARSARIZONA

“Who are you?”
“An Arizona “America… Fuck Yeah/ STAR WARS!” can design.”

Sunday has been a weird day of spending too much time on Photoshop and making this fucking monster. I had so much fun making the Poe Dameron collage last night so I thought I’d take a stab at another. Milner’s Blog had a heap of Force Awakens character pngs… huge downloadable files and just waiting to be played with.

So, I decided I would use some of the same elements as I did for “Poe” and get every character in there… with a focus on Rey. It was just one of those days where nothing was really coming together but I pushed myself through and kept on going. I knew I wanted to add sticky gold stars, vintage roses and ferns (no clue why) and vintage Star Wars bubblegum card stickers…

I had a bad feeling about it from the start. Kinda glad I kept doing it though and the results (for me) are pretty hilarious.

So if Disney & Arizona need to decorate a can of 99 cent BB-8 Berry Blast sugar water… HERE IS THE PERFECT IMAGE JUST FOR THEM!


POE DAMERON collage @ SISSYDUDE ART & ILLUSTRATION…

A little Star Wars geekin’ tonight w/ hottie Oscar “Poe Dameron” Isaac… made a digital collage (it’s been a while). Cathartic vintage flowers and shit!!!

You can check out my art @ JOHN SISSYDUDE ART & ILLUSTRATION via FACEBOOK & TUMBLR.


HEY, BTW… I’M ON INSTAGRAM! @SISSYDUDE

Screen Shot 2015-10-24 at 10.23.01 PM

I joined Instagram a few years ago and only posted 3 shots. I didn’t touch it again until April when I started sharing pics of my NYC trip. Now I’m hooked. If you want to know what I do with my days this is were to go. It’s not “SUPER EXCITING” and there aren’t any cocks or hairy holes! It’s just me and my cat Sebastian… pictures of things I collect and my @frombehind series of photos. Check it out! XXXO J

in my room… it’s all in the details.

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.56.11 PMHey look… it’s baby ME!!!

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.44.38 PMSo, my new kitty Sebastian is the sweetest thing ever… and he’s a total monster too! Love him. My recently deceased loves Kiki & Joe never broke things… and I have a lot of breakable things. I broke more than they ever did. Sebastian loves to jump on anything… anytime… all the time. Lamps have fallen (the ones you see here), scarves and curtains ripped, ceramic pig (and other ceramics) broke to bits. So, after a couple of months living together he seems to be calming down slightly. During this time I’ve been moving things around in the bedroom. Changing things up a bit. I got rid of my headboard and foot board that I’ve had for like 20 years. My bed is now on the ground like it was when I was a teen. I’m kind of loving it. I think Sebastian and I have found our groove together. So let me take you on an “intimate” tour of my bedroom (Sebastian’s playroom) …

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.44.52 PMThese bellhop looking studs are nailed to the bedroom door. Welcome!

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.47.10 PMMy hat with a vintage World’s Fair scarf adorn the lampshade. Sebastian likes to pull these off with his claws or teeth!

JOHN SISSYDUDE WEBSTER ART & ILLUSTRATION! NOW on TUMBLR & FACEBOOK!

opc3

For those who care… I have started a Tumblr & Facebook group for my ART & ILLUSTRATION. I found that after a few years with my own artist website… nobody was visiting! So I removed the site and simply went to Tumblr & Facebook, places people are always present… where they share things. Please join the groups if you like my artistic stuff (and tell your art director friends)! XO

lost in my bedroom (beware… sissydude’s dirty bits)

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 9.14.33 PM

I’m so lost lately… working odd jobs… applying for “real” jobs (and not getting any of them) and really wanting a creative life more than anything. No job and no money isn’t a very good mix on your self esteem. I feel very un-dateable at the moment (is that even a word?). And I’m turning the BIG FIVE OH on August 28th!

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 9.15.15 PM

I’ve never felt that attractive and frequently think I’m not. This afternoon I felt kinda HOT… but alone. So I took these snaps. I used to snap myself a lot during the Sissydude Tumblr years and then I just stopped… cold. I always thought if you’re gonna post other guys naked all the time then it’s only fair you do it too. So here you go… enjoy or turn away. XO

Inspired by HBO’s ‘GIRLS’ : GIRLS VALENTINE’S DAY CARDS!!! NINE MORE!!!

hannah3

I absolutely LOVE HBO’s GIRLS… and since it will soon be that dreaded Valentine’s Day, I decided this year to make cute Victorian-like cards of Hannah & the gang. I’ve made six eight Seventeen! I think the juxtaposition of quotes from the show and all the flowers, lace and hearts makes for some very eccentric Valentines! THERE ARE MORE! CHECK OUT THIS POST to see the FIRST 8 DESIGNS.
