ok…i guess i need to write something about what that dude….who’s running against my pal kent smith for state representative, ….what that dude has been spouting off about my art work. the book that kent and i put together has some pretty strong art, thank you dude, but dude jerks his knee, he’s a knee jerker. through out the book, please god save us, and mostly in the republican party chapter, i incorporated a symbol i drew from two of the most powerful symbols mankind has come up with…a cross and a swastika. dude, the knee jerker, goes off on how it’s a swastika and the book is anti-Semitic where in truth, and if dude could read, it is described as a crosstika. a crosstika represents the marriage of church and state, that’s it. now as far as the knee jerker goes, if he really and truly can’t read, then could he be competent holding elective office? wait, i guess one can, W was in for 8 years.

#1 the blueprint to a wahoo..these are my rendition of Wahoo printed on actual blueprints from the Jacobs Field. this print works like the “suicide note” prints I and II do, it’s a signed edition print and each is consistent because the Wahoo is the same on each sheet, at the same time they’re unique because no one blueprint page is the same…win, win. a signed and number limited edition print, while still being a unique piece of art.
