Shit, Shinola, and Sandpaper – 30″ x 40″ x 2.5″ - mixed media and screenprint on canvas (a TMNK + Destroy Rebuild Collabo!)

In other words, life is not always a box of cherries. Sometimes we all have to deal with unnecessary crap (and our share of crappy people). You just got to do your best to keep it mov’n – forward. Believe me, I know it can be rough at times. In fact,  there is always going to be a certain amount of bullshit to deal with in our life. That’s what makes persevering, overcoming, and arriving successfully at your destination so sweet.

Mr. Brainwash + TMNK the Collabo

How appropriate, the dude that “appropriates/borrows” get’s buffed by a nobody like me. (wink) What, you think I was gonna wait around and ASK him to do a collaboration wit me. GTFOH, sure we’re both streets artists, but he’s MR. BRAINWASH, and I’m….  Damn, if I only had a brain, I’d be somebody. LOL

They’re At It Again

I’m lucky to have the opportunity to collaborate with some of today’s leading contemporary artists, my favorite being my son. He proudly calls this one, Wedding Day.

I was honored that a talented writer suggest the use  of his stories/poems for a series of new paintings. The writer is Dion Pincus, and this the first of a series of collaborations between writer and artist.

PASTOR POSSUM -mixed media on masonite 18″ x24″

PASTOR POSSUM – by Dion Pincus
As Pastor Possum preached the seven seals to his rapt congregation,
the seven seals were seven meals, enough to stuff your face in;
the seven meals had seven courses, and each of them in the room
who’d join to table in Possum heaven, was guaranteed seven spoons.
 
But each spoon h ad seven spots, and dish detergent costs,
so each seventh day of each July each parishioner had to toss
in seven hundred dollars cash, in seven easy payments,
to the Pastor Possum Clean Spoon Fund.  No dough, no go.  Amen.
