Easter Island

I dislike Easter most of all. It's a purely religious holiday that's been foisted on us by the dominant Christian majority. There is zero proof that anyone has ever been risen from the dead after three days, and no just because your Bible says it's so that doesn't make it true. It's on a different day every year and the food associated with is is crappy. When people wish me a happy Easter I tell them I don't celebrate it.

Fuck corporate co-opting


No Pepsi, you don't get to co-opt protest.  And no, I'm not giving a cop a fucking thing at the next demonstration I go to.

Apropos of what we're dealing with

Stopping for awhile

This family emergency with Sparky's folks is just too much for us all to handle right now.  This blog is on indefinite hiatus for the foreseeable future until we get this shit under control.

I've had enough

We've bent over backwards to help Sparky's folks get through a rough patch but they're both acting like selfish paranoid little bitches.  Her dad lost all the toes on his left foot due to diabetic complications and he's lucky that that was all he lost.  Now that he's in the clear you'd think he and his wife would let up and let us get back to some semblance of normalcy but but no.  They want all of us at their beck and call and after over a month of dealing with this, I'm over it.  They driving us all nuts and he's driving his ADHD afflicted wife to an even earlier grave with his crazy demands.

More progress

Looks so much better with only a partial face on his lower leg.  Lot more work to go, but I'm heading in the right direction.  This one really feels like me, like I'm finally free to do what I think is best and not be trapped by any negative thinking or trying to copy anyone else.

Work in progress

I like a lot of what I've done so far but the whole face on the bottom right might not survive the final cut.

The things we do for love

Some dude who wanted to get laid again said, "Your hairdo looks great honey!  No, really, it does!  I love it."

Our current foreign policy in a nutshell

"Germany owes us billions for helping to defend them."
"Nein."
"Germany owes us nine billion for defending them."

What do you think of Trump's first budget?

"Defense contractors aren't going to make record profits if we don't reign in reckless spending."

"If it takes money from Negroes, I'm happy."

"I'll be dead soon so I don't give a shit."

"I'm kind of worried about this thing on my jacket.  It's been growing pretty fast and it's attained sentience." 

"I used to be a woman."

"My first name is Joyce as well."

"It cuts money to PBS, NPR, arts organizations, meals on wheels, Head Start, and government based scientific research, so I'm pretty sure Jesus would be fine with it. Now, I'm horny, where the bitches be at?"

Work in progress

This one is called 'Hey mouse ears!' In the late 1960's we still lived in the projects in Detroit and some young black teens loved getting a rise out of my dad.  He'd get livid when they shouted "Hey mouse ears!" at him while he walked through the neighborhood with his head down. This is my homage to that time in my life, those young black men, and to my dad, who would probably not like this work since it made fun of him in a round about way, but fuck it, he always wanted his kids to be artists.

The light at the end of the tunnel

Maybe next week I'll get back to semi regular blogging.  Still dealing with a family emergency.

Marisol Escobar









Escobar was a Venezuelan artist born in France.  She was lumped in with artists identified as members of the pop art movement artists but she outlasted almost all of them, she passed away in 2016.  She created colorful wooden sculptures that played with and riffed off the human form.  Her art is extremely accessible and very striking.  To me some of her figures recall the moai on Easter Island.
