More Grease Cuck Art

I like designing CD or album covers for music that might never get made. This is my latest idea for a concept album, "Get your elk on." 

For those who don't live in Portland, the elk statue was the site of many BLM protests in 2020. The elk was eventually taken down by the city and a post-modern hell-elk took its place. Now the hell-elk has also been removed.

I'm well suited for designing punk images as fine line work, delicate shading -- basically artistic nuance of any kind -- is impossible for me.

This lack of traditional training doesn't deter me from enjoying my fanciful pursuits.

Gump on the stimulus bill

 Again we see the GOP as a post-policy party, voting against anything the Democrats support.

This Is How I Feel

I’m in a class about Jews of the Mideast and North Africa. The above is a still from an Egyptian film from 1949. I haven’t seen it.

I imagine a befuddled father overwhelmed at how the modern world has subverted his expectations. This is me.

Sometimes art is timeless.

Blithe Optimism: COVID Continues to Recede


Multnomah County is now in the lightest shade of the NYT color map – whooo!

Average daily cases is down to 43, which is a 5.3 cases per 100K of population.

Combined with the good vaccine news, I’d like to think this summer will be more social than the last. A guy can always dream.

Shooting positive post-pandemic vibrations out into the universe.

Photo Opp

 Sometimes the desire to take a photo overwhelms other consideration.
