Zombie Punks walk around Manhattan blasting Black Flag, Television and Wire on their boombox. They like to stand too close to people on the train and discuss Kant with their imaginary Mexican sidekick Paco.
This is a subject that I know pretty well – I have looked at it more than almost anything else. It is my hand holding a wacom stylus. People have the idea that computers draw for you. What they don’t understand is that drawing has nothing to do with your hand or the medium you use. Drawing is the process of developing the video-card between your ears and using it to project your ideas onto some visual medium. Drawing and painting with a piece of wood or an airbrush on dead trees is the same process as drawing with pixels of light on a screen. This is a wacom intuos 4 stylus – an old trusty warhorse of a peripheral. Cartoon hand wacom stylus. Vive La Pixels.
This is a green monster called Chris. He is a silly guy with a fondness of making fart noises with his mouth. He is happy and friendly if a little mischievous monster. This is a green monster sitting and sticking out his tongue.
Nyan cat is one of the first internet memes I remember. He is a sweet animated poptart kitty who flies through space on a rainbow. He also has a 10/10 soundtrack.
This is a green fish with red stripes. He is a happy peppermint Christmas fish. He comes out of hibernation around thanksgiving. He is so sweet that he flavors the water he swims in.
I am fascinated by microbes. The fact that tiny rna injecting critters float around in the air and exist only to sicken and sometimes kill us – is frightening. They are tiny monsters and eventually we will have another massive epidemic like the Spanish flu that sickened 1 in 10 people on the planet. Check out this TED talk about doom – including the dangers of the flu.
I love Halloween. It is the best time of year in Georgia. The weather is perfect. After a long hot miserable summer the coolness is amazing. Contrasts are magic. This is a Jack-o-lantern who has seen too many days. He is starting to rot and slowly dissolve but he is still chipper. He is starting to grow little gray fuzzy things on the inside and he is fascinated by each stage of his short life.
Fugazi the punk monster drives his hotrod race car with no muffler through his suburban neighborhood at night.
Philip Seymour Hoffman caricature. This guy seems to be in all of my favorite movies. He is easily one of the most talented and original actors working today. Though in no way for kids — his movie Happiness is one of the funniest and most moving movies ever made. RIP Mr Hoffman.
