This was the cover to a report I did on the Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch. You know, the guy who paints people with fish heads. I’m not saying that he used fish heads to make his paintings. For example, he didn’t use a fish head as a brush. What I am trying to say is he paints pictures of fish-headed people. Circa 1999. This drawing was circa 1999 but the Hieronymus paintings were circa 1500.
Hey. Hello. I just sold a case of my ScribblePads to Walmart. The calm part of me is suppressing the other part of me who is jumping up and down and dancing around giggling like a little schoolgirl while wetting himself. I wake up each day and look for clues as to whether or not I am dreaming. If this is a dream, it is the longest dream I have ever had. Eight days, it has been. I haven’t tried pinching myself. I just did it and it hurt, so that is supposed to prove that I am not dreaming. I think I am holding my breath. It was just too easy. I don’t know for sure if they are out on the floor, yet. This picture was taken before I talked to the manager. I like to think that doing this gave me a little more positive juju. A little bit of magic. I also could have gotten arrested or fined. I think that when I talked to the manager the main thing I conveyed was that I just wanted a chance. Maybe those were the magic words. “I’m just asking for a chance.” That is what I said. This is only speculation, though. I am trying to stay calm because even though I got my product in Walmart, now it is a matter of my product flying off of the shelves if I am to claim success. If you are in the Fenton, MI area, stop by their Walmart and buy a couple. Cool. Yeah, cool. Stay cool.
PS…..I went to the Fenton Walmart to see if they were out on the floor, yet. They are not. I was told that it takes a little time to get registered in the Walmart vendor system.
Another great issue of the odd, the unusual, the peculiar, and the tragically hilarious. Stoopid! #4 delivers!

I mean, why can’t we harness the power of lightning? Or hurricanes and tornadoes? Just imagine the power generated by these natural phenomena. Let me emphasize NATURAL. Stuff that is going to happen anyways! Hey…we are already messing with solar, wind, and water power. This would just be one level up from that. If we can figure this out, eventually, we will also figure out how to make flying cars, probably.

I did a little more work on the AJ project. At first, I was just trying out different background colors. I was going to send this to Al and Gloria and let them decide which color they preferred. When I put them all together it looked quite charming. It reminded me of something Andy Warhol would have tried. I’ve decided to leave it as is. Art just happens, sometimes!
This is for my big brother, Albert, as he is recovering from a kidney transplant operation. This is a caricature of his dog, A.J. So listen to A.J. and get well soon!
This art was a simple pencil sketch of A.J.’s face and a very vague, unfinished outline of his body. I then scanned it into Photoshop and painted it.
If you are standing in a group of ten random people, one of those ten believes in lizard people, a worldwide pedophile ring, and a flat Earth. Could anyone predict that the National Enquirer would all of a sudden become serious journalism? I blame the movie “Men in Black”. In one scene, the character played by Tommy Lee Jones tells the character played by Will Smith, as they are looking through supermarket tabloids at the newsstand, “Best investigative reporting on the planet”. It was a movie, people! A MOVIE! A Fictional Story! Just as QAnon is fictional nonsense! Grow up, please! You are starting to frighten me!
