If you want to experience the thrill of observing authentic Southern country folk in their natural habitat and eat some of their Southern fried seafood you should probably go to a restaurant called Claudette’s Kitchen and Southern Seafood in Byron, Georgia.

You get this view in line while he works his subtle magic in lard and super saturated fats on your fish. He is demonstrating for you how the term redneck came to be.

Pumpkin spice latte monster getting geeked up on caffeine and sugar. Orange pumpkin monsters like to walk around the Walmart toy section after they have had a Venti latte or two. They like to chatter their teeth and look at the keen packaging and spiffy design work and dream of one day having a room full of the latest toys to play with. They know they would get tired of them as soon as they load them into their car but they still like to entertain the idea of rows and rows of brightly colored toys.
The first monster I remember is Cookie Monster. Every kid has cookie monster in there lurking beneath the surface – waiting to spring forth and gobble your cookies. They live on and for cookies. They eat them until they get a tummy ache.
This is a green four eyed ogre called Charlie. He is an ugly fellow with a sweet disposition. He has 4 blue eyes and a shock of purple hair. He only wears underwear and he doesn’t change them for weeks on end. He isn’t comfortable in them until they are a crunchy yellowy brown. I love Weezer.They are a great mix of grunge and razor sharp pop rock. One of the coolest Radiohead covers ever is this take on Paranoid Android. Charlie loves them too.

The cool thing about digital art is that it is 100 percent clean and surgically precise. Compared to painting with liquid plastic on top of animal hair – it is as clean and ordered as the room Nasa keeps moon rocks in. Within a psd file – you have layers and layers of virtual labeled drawers of reality that you can open up and manipulate and change until you are happy. You virtually massage virtual points of light with microscopic detail. You have absolute control and the ability to pull up art from 3 years ago and add touches to it perfectly and then hit save and you have an iteration of a piece of reality from the past. It is like a crystalized time slice that you can hold up with a pair of tweezers and obsess over. This is an eastern bluebird that I painted at my grandmas house. It reminds me of eating cereal and watching them in Winter at 6am as they messily dump seeds out of the feeder and onto the ground so they can be more comfortable eating them. He reminds me of irrational anxiety and worrying about my grandma’s health. I took the butterfly out of his mouth and made some changes to his shape and to the wood he is perched on.
