Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla

I made this as a gift for a friend. These two were friends, I’m told.

These were gifts, too, documented here for posterity. The first is for podcaster, Rob Lee, with whom I had a nice conversation about a month ago. I’m not sure how to link to a podcast, but Rob is Baltimore’s biggest fan, highlighting her artists, makers and great people. Check out The Truth in the Art.

Sadie was a sweet old girl who went over the rainbow bridge after enjoying one last cheese burger. Rest well, Sadie. You are missed!

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.

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?
