This is a robotic green humming bird. It is a tiny flying robot that buzzes around robot flowers drinking their robot nectar.
This is a giant resin pop art statue. It belongs in front of a billion dollar corporate headquarters in downtown Atlanta. It represents the childlike wonder and joy of dollar store consumerism. As a kid nothing was more fun or thrilling than going to a dollar store on a hot summer morning and walking out with a cool dayglow toy. It was magic. This is an altar to that feeling. It is about the joy and beauty of buying cheap and magical stuff that is made of petroleum products. It is also a doff of the cap to our reptoid overlords and ancestors who made it all possible.
This is an illustration of a cute gray kitty with a bell collar around his neck. I love kitties. They are domesticated but they have a wild streak inside them. It is cool to watch their predator instincts kick in when they are hunting a tiny bug or lizard. They go into a hyper cute ninja mode that is a remnant of their lion ancestors. Bells are like a kitty alarm system to protect our songbird buddies from being eaten. This is one of my favorite animals.
This is a brown rooster with four legs. He was grown in a lab at KFC so that The Colonel can harvest more drumsticks per chicken. I used to have a stuffed chicken that I carried around with me as a kid. His name was Bok Bok.
I love kitties. Part of their charm is that they love you but they are never all-in. They sit with their back to you. They wont let you pet them unless they are in the mood. If you pet them too much they may bite you. They throw up on your floor from time to time and they poop like there is no tomorrow so you spend a good deal of your time scooping poop. This cat’s name is Sandy. She ate some crayons and now she is vomiting a spectrum of wax.
This is a green fish with teeth being fed kitties instead of fish food. His name is Charles the Green. Green means he isn’t experienced. He isn’t quite sure if kitties are real or part of a simulated reality being pulled over his eyes by a mischievous deity. He is pondering the caloric content of sweet fish food kitties and wondering if he should wait for his lexapro withdrawal to finish up before having dinner.
Adam and Eve, according to the creation myth of the Abrahamic religions, were the first man and woman. They are central to the belief that humanity is in essence a single family, with everyone descended from a single pair of original ancestors. It also provides the basis for the doctrines of the fall of man and original sin that are important beliefs in Christianity, although not held in Judaism or Islam.
I love Biblical imagery. It is so surrealistic and creepy. The bible is beautiful and its stories are like regions in our brain installed by Western culture to guide us through the world. But many parts of it are little more than trolling. It is a collection of memes from the 6th Century BCE used to torment and prod. Teehee girls are responsible for original sin. God made them spontaneously bleed as punishment. Umad? Yeah umad.
This is a Dodo. His name is Michael Tennant. He walks around the forest with no fear and no marketable skills. He is unable to function in the world. Nature is harsh and unforgiving and his brain is soft like a puppy’s belly. Michael is the last of his species and he is unable to understand the significance of extinction.
This is a unicorn puking a rainbow. It is one of the internet’s oldest memes. Though I support the LGBT community it has nothing to do with gay rights. It was originally coined to reference the gaudy dayglo and pez colors splashed on packages in Japanese culture. “Yo that rack of Japanese candy looks like a unicorn puked on it.” It succinctly represents how I feel about all consumerism. It is gaudy, garish, loud, obnoxious and it burns a little when it comes back up after a bender. I love internet culture – it is world culture.
I love cardinals. I used to watch them endlessly. Their beauty is gaudy in a world that rewards drab colors that would let them blend in to hide from predators. They are like a bloodred beacon against a snowy background – it is the most amazing contrast in winter. It is cool to think that they were designed to be this beautiful by female cardinals over thousands of years. They are tufted finches that eat seeds. Their beak is a neon orange wedge designed for tough seeds.
This is an Eastern Bluebird illustration. They used to come to bird houses in my grandma’s backyard. You could sit and watch them work constantly to build a nest and then feed their young. They would work as a team – tirelessly. I once found a dead male under a feeder in the coldest part of Winter. Turns out that they can actually freeze to death. It must be brutal to survive in the wild as a tiny bird.
I love birds so much. It is cool how they were sculpted by evolution to ride the wind like some sort of scifi machine. It also made them beautiful – with graceful shapes that reflect their purpose. Male songbirds have the most bright and beautiful coloration – chosen by female birds – for no other purpose than beauty. It is crushing that people have built giant skyscrapers that that kill millions of songbirds a year – as they fly into them blindly. I hope we can figure out a way to save them.
