I Detest Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

Possibly the only musical artist of whom I can honestly say this.  But because you visit infection by light mostly for the honesty, I thought you should know.  It just seemed important.


"I Am the Man Who Pans For Gold, But Without a Pan, and There Was Never Any Gold"

Pencil, pen and lipstick on cocktail napkin, 5 x 5 inches, 3/14/15, Gainsbourg, Greenwood, Seattle.

It is not impossible I have been drawing crosses for these several years only to arrive at this one.


(Untitled Original IBL Art)

Pencil, pen and crayon on cocktail napkin, 4.75 x 4.75 inches, 11/25/12, Seattle.

This had been sitting around for awhile and then the other day I looked at it for the millionth time and thought, you know, actually that one might be done.  Whatever that means.


"No No,Dear - This is the Dream, You're Still in the Cell"

Crayon, white-out, glue and torn propaganda from my mother on coaster, 3.5 x 3.5 inches, completed 4/19/15, Ould Triangle, Greenwood, Seattle.  (Though the "frame" on the coaster was completed on 12/15/12 at the Little Red Hen, Green Lake, Seattle, and I'd been waiting for something appropriate to put inside.)


"And the Sky Was All Violets"

Pen and colored pencil on coaster, 3.5 x 3.5 inches, 3/7/15, Greenwood, Seattle.
