Ok, Zoomer

Last winter, the Hamilton Gallery presented the Bearing Witness show online, not knowing how/when the pandemic was going to resolve.

Lucky for all, it will be in person this summer! I had submitted Pestilence Rides Out for the digital show. I’ve been collecting my thoughts and objects regarding this time in our lives, and decided to make another piece for the in person exhibit.

I’ve watched my daughters finish their respective school careers online. I’ve worked remotely for over a year. And attended many meetings on Webex, Google Meet, and Zoom.

A lot of these characters kept me company and/or otherwise occupied throughout the pandemic. I take my mask off to them, my good friends.

Two Feet and More

I’ve been dying to show these giant drawings in public. So, when I saw the call for entry, I jumped in with… both feet!

Two Feet and More is a show at the Towson Art Collective of works 2′ and larger. It seemed doubly fitting that my work is larger than 2′, and is of 2 feet!

This is quality Dad humor, folks.

Each is approximately 3′ x 3′.

P.S. I was told this is “funny sexy.”

Anatomy of a Crime Scene

Anatomy of a Crime Scene, no. 11.

Perhaps this story will be familiar to you. A good egg, probably minding his own business, when trouble suddenly strikes under a bird-free sky. It happens all too often anymore.

When will this end? Will they ever catch those responsible?

Tony Soprano is more of a Tenor

It’s true.
