PHYSICAL GRAFFITI 2017

A new collection of work is coming down the pipe. Somewhat of a departure from the SNAKES AND EGGS Collage work I’ve been doing, these newer pieces are rooted in the ideas of writing, language, graffiti, and the postmodern practice of using a pre-existing image or material that carries a weight of signification that is altered or alters that which is applyied over it.

these are the first two in the series with many more completed and even more planned after that. Though they remain in a digital state, they were created with the intention to print.

check back or follow to see the new work as it comes out every week

THIS WAS THE HIGH SCHOOL I ATTENDED BACK IN 1942 …

ALL OF THE FLAT SCREEN HDTVs WERE BLACK & WHITE

BECAUSE EVERYTHING WAS BLACK &WHITE AND THERE WAS NO COLOR.

FISH CENTER LIVE PROPOGANDA


Fish Center Live is guilty of implied age discrimination and violating the OWBPA Civil Rights Act 0f 1990. By referring to a separate tank of saltwater fish as the “Junior League” they have instigated an emotionally charged smear campaign that has members of the (#prerecorded) live chat to declare their hatred and desire to remove all fish who are in the junior league.

The major mistake was to miscalculate the need for #divisions or #conferemces which would keep all fish at the same level without confusing new fans or insighting mob hostility through the (#prerecorded) live chat.

As it stands, the junior league is just a #simulacrum and #prerecorded at 1pm PST on the West Coast, while airing at 4pm on the Eastern Seaboard….

Its still the best dam show on any network anywhere …

Instructional Deconstructional Guitar w/Lawnmower performance

is an acoustic guitar considered appropriate for performing music with? if so, does the maker of that guitar have any stake in the definition of said music?

years ago when I was in the need for an acoustic guitar I knew that I had come far enough in my guitar playing that buying a cheaper acoustic guitar was really not going to be doing anybody any favors … including my wife, who completely understood the situation. there are plenty of guitars out there that run around $200-$300 that sound just fine. but there are fewer that are just under the $1000 mark that sound superb. in the right hands they can sound insanely good. there are even more guitars in the $2000 and up range, but for some reason they always feel like I’m playing a lush and solid piece of handcrafted furniture and there seems to be very little give on such guitars. what I ended up buying was a Martin DM .. Dreadnaught Mohogany .. simple. Tho this guitar is made in the USA (most guitar makers who were strictly US made have caved into demand and now make guitars in China or Mexico) and has all of what you expect from a Martin guitar, there are a few things it does not have – some of which I couldn’t tell what makes it different and some of which have been perhaps better than a huge solid glossy tank of wood that the higher priced Martins are. It was just under $1000 and came with a “satin finish” which felt more like “no finish” .. great for breaking in in a shorter period of time – within 3 years or so it’s really started to open up and I couldn’t be happier.

but this is not about my Martin.

Is a lawnmower considered appropriate for performing music with? if not, who the fuck are you to say what music is and isn’t? what if you combined the two? guitar and lawnmower?

Colourlovers Secret Habit

isn’t this just too cute?

One of the first interactive creative tools I found for my iMac in 2009 that was not software, but an all inclusive GUI for exploring the world of additive RGB color was colourlovers.com

it is incredibly cheesy, stupid, and a bore … but I am obsessed with color, so had no problem getting sucked into the whole thing. I just made this pallet from an image of mine in about 1/32nd the time it took to press this.

highly recommend this www for color and hue obsessed ppl

CUT UP VIDEO 

when my daughter was about a year and some years old, I took this video.

now, about 4 years later I have found a most appropriate way to consolidate it into a rather deprecating form, which should at least provide a sense of entertainment to some, while others may laugh and call it a genius adventure in neo-dadaism.


or fluxus art … but who cares at this point? it’s just kinda funny and maybe from an aesthetic point of view, it’s more of a piece of art than most of the pretentious garbage that’s incorrectly hash tagged and irresponsible for its own absence of meaning.
