Some studio work

I continue to dig through the archives… Here’s a type of work I did in school but really haven’t done since. Working in a studio is a lot of fun, it’s a totally different type of workflow. The models hated working with me, I would give them very little direction. I usually found the best …

We have met the enemy and he is us…

Along with Doonsbury and Peanuts, Pogo is the definition of comic art. Walt Kelly was a master political satirist and artist. His strip, Pogo, ran for 3 or 4 decades and was perhaps the pinnacle of the comic art form. He is especially famous for his take on the dealings of the House Un-American activities …

My favorite negative ad.

Despite everyone’s supposed dislike of negative ads, they can be instructive. My current favorite one is from the RNC. In it, they detail how in bed Obama was with both Fannie and Freddie. It talks about how he supported them and how this whole financial collapse is due to people like him. Of course the …

More scans

I’ve dug up some things from years past. These haven’t seen the light of day in quite a while. There’s some I took in Ithaca, some in Binghamton, one in Cheektowaga, and one I took near DC. You can see them here.

Job stuff

I’ve been looking around and trying to figure out what I want to do. I had mentioned before that I’d like to go to Turkey in the spring. I’ll do that too, unless of course I can find a job that I like before then… Starting a regular life has some appeal, but it has …

Great, now Syria….

Bush is only in power for a little longer, did he have to go and piss off Syria? There are already a lot of countries that won’t allow Americans in because of our foreign policy, is Syria going to be next? How on earth am I going to get to Damascus now? What? There was …

New Apple laptops

My father got a new laptop the other day. He has FINALLY gotten a Mac, now all I need to do is get mom switched over and I’ll have my computer troubleshooting life taken care of… Anyway, I moaned and groaned a bit about the new macbooks because they dropped the firewire port off of …

Are churches "feminine?"

I was chatting with my friend Dana last night and I mentioned that I was going to start going to a book club in an Episcopal church. She said, “Good, we need more men.” By “we” she meant the Episcopal church. I’m not going to become one BTW. I’ve never felt right being in church …

Another ridiculous Obama ad

I just saw another Obama campaign ad talking about jobs shipped overseas. This one laments that workers in the Carolinas the sewed the American flag had their jobs sent overseas. They lost not only their jobs, but their “dignity” as well. Where to start? OK, first of all, those people were either going to lose …
