Pre-computer Art: Dictators Beware

Chiang Kai-shek gets spoofed.
Over the past six months, I've digitalized some scrapbooks and photo albums. When I don't have any good, current material I dip into the archive and see what has stood the test of time.

I've always enjoyed the heroic posturing of strongman leaders as expressed in postage stamps, but only when I haven't had to suffer their imperial edicts. I don't think I'll ever take delight in doing any art with Trump as the subject, some situations are just too nightmarish to begin with.

The above stamps were from the 1960s and show a robust Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek giving a speech.

Dictator Stoke!

  5. Unfortunately there are just some all-too-common nutrients that we simply don't get enough of. And they're absolutely critical to optimal health and wellness. Especially as we age.
    Here I sifted through the supplements that are available on the market and boiled them down to three that can have the best effect for us.
