Out Damned Trump!

I’m not gonna lie, writing a weekly blog about your own art is hard. What the hell do you write about without sounding narcissistic or self-indulgent?

Drawing Cartoons Isn’t that Damned Easy!

I’m not gonna lie, I love painting and drawing and visual art in general. Sure, some contemporary art can be challenging, baffling and, let’s face it, boring.

So I’m writing this on the morning that the world learned that Donald and Melania Trump have COVID-19.

Pop Culture and Oh Shit, Politics!

So as you dear reader(s) know, I make a lot of paintings based on popular culture. That is the aspect of culture that I suspect has had the most impact on contemporary human type beings.
