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!

This is a rare treat for all of you nonpaying fans of Small Consolation. Once in a while, for promotional purposes, you will get an extra freebie. I really like this one.
