“America: Zero”

The finished product from yesterday’s post:

To start: no, I’m not for burning flags. It’s merely an image. 

Nitty-gritties: though initially envisioned as 100% acrylic paints, I ended up using oil pastels for a lot of what you see in the foreground. I kicked around a few names before settling on “America: Zero”, but most felt a bit too on the nose. 

Also, I’m aware that an elephant Trump wielding a torch amidst a crowd of horrified onlookers doesn’t scream “subtlety” like I initially shot for. I just really let this one become its own thing and I’m happy with that. 

I may put it up for sale if I can get a high quality scan for a print, but I’m not certain. 



A Vote For The Party…

I’ve been working on something new the last couple of days, and it’s something a lot different than the usual stuff. I’m taking a very blotchy, contrasty approach to the background here and hopefully that pays off when it’s completed. I’m also attempting something political- new territory when it comes to an art piece. I’ve beaten it to death on podcasts and comics- crudely, I might add, so hopefully this comes across with a hint of subtlety. 

Two days in and I don’t completely hate it yet, so with any luck this holds true through the finished product. I’d love to post it here and sell it if it looks decent. 


Blue Dogs Bonus #1: The Once Golden Door

It’s just a dopey rant, but I felt the need to put my thoughts about this to use somehow. After a good conversation with someone tonight, I feel more compelled now than ever to really speak up and try to counter balance this shit.

Keep fighting the good fight however possible- we are better than this.
