Politics and getting out tough stains

infomercial picture

So. . .maybe it is just me but it seems like things have changed. We used to listen to political leaders for speeches that were inspiring, well written, and profound. They were things that school children would later have to memorize in some public speaking class.

Now. . .it kind of reminds me late night infomercials. Every candidate, no matter what party or level of office could, at any point in time, pull out a rotisserie or box of stain busting laundry powder and I would not be surprised at all. I actually would find it oddly comforting because then at least I would know what all the shouting was about. Hell, everyone wants their wash to come out cleaner and their chicken to be roasted to perfection.

Now?

Its just kind of up in the air why everyone on all sides is so angry. At least the other way we get cleaner clothes and a good meal out of it. . .

Vampish – Pastel on 8 ply art board

An older piece. . .I have always loved this one though. Pastel on art board that was treated with acrylic ground for texture. Was one of the first pieces I did that ground on and when I got done I realized I had actually sanded my finger prints off. LOl I had no idea it would be that course but it does allow a lot of layering of colors.

Steam Punk Font

Theme Punk Themed Font Set

I created a steam punk themed PNG font I sell on Etsy. I don’t know why but I have always been fascinated with the Steam Punk type of artwork. Its like a metaphor for life really. . .everything really is a machine. Our bodies. . .the bird flying by. . .that leaf. . . all machines in one way or another and the idea that things could be built out of watch parts. . .that is just too cool for words. It may not be “true” steam punk to zealots but. . .I like it.
