Stay tuned for more in progress pics!

FOX 'News' Fakes it...Again.

FOXNews 'mistakenly' airs last years campaign footage to show the size of the crowds created by the Sarah Palin book tour. Oddly the script was written to suit the 'wrong' footage. Also the footage manages to hide the enough of the McCain/Palin campaign signs. FOX later apologized for getting caught in another mistake.

FOXNews also aired wrong footage a few weeks ago, showing a much larger crowd at a Michael Bachmann event, than were actually in attendance.

They watched in anger as the pious crowd brutalized the young men while shouting vulgarities and invoking the Almighty. It was obvious that over the centuries
the people's devotion had been perverted into this bloodlust. And they had finally had enough.

Once they saw the ropes being strung up they broke their edict, showing themselves. They could no longer wait until death had come to do their task, they would end these
atrocities now. As they descended from above, like birds of prey, some swooped the tortured youths from the clutches of their persecutors, carrying them off to safety, while
others turned their attention to the fleeing mob.

The original is on consignment with the Lyman-Eyer Gallery. While available for purchase, it will remain with the gallery for my 2010 solo exhibit in July. Limited edition Gallery and Studio prints as well as open edition Portfolio prints are available for purchase at the Special First Day Price through Midnight ET tomorrow.

on the drawing board: fine feathered friends

This is something new for me: feathers! Studying them I notice that they are ordered chaos, a perfect pattern in disarray. This is one of those times where I let the medium have a little more freedom. As long as the result looks realistically like feathers, I'm happy, rather than making sure each feather is detailed and just so.

AMA: DADT and Gay Marriage Bans are Bad Medicine

HOUSTON - The American Medical Association has agreed to join efforts to repeal the military's don't-ask-don't-tell policy.

The Chicago-based AMA also voted to declare that gay marriage bans contribute to health disparities for gay couples and their children.

The nation's largest doctors' group adopted both gay-rights policies at its interim policy meeting Tuesday in Houston.

The AMA says the don't-ask-don't-tell law creates an ethical dilemma for gay service members and the doctors who treat them.

The other measure declares that marriage bans leave gays vulnerable to being excluded from health care benefits, including health insurance and family and medical leave rights. The new AMA policy stops short of opposing the bans.

on the drawing board: flight of fancy

I was browsing through my copy of Titans, the art of Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, and got the idea to blend that dynamic superhero vibe to an idea I was formulating for my next piece.

When people ask me where I get my inspiration, there is no simpler answer other than 'anywhere & everywhere'. Along with inspiration from Titans, the influences for this piece also include the HBO miniseries Angles in America, and primarily the atrocities carried out against gay men in countries like Iran and Iraq. I can't imagine anything more horrifying to god (if one exists) or a religious person than their religion perpetuating violence or instigating prejudice against others.

Best of America: Pastel Artists

I am included in the upcoming (December) release of the book "Best of America: Pastel Artists II". It's very cool to be acknowledged in the bigger art circle, outside the niche of gay themed art & erotica. I even got a spot on the back cover.

Maine Voters Strip Away Rights of fellow Americans

Tuesday, voters in Maine threw the American creed "liberty and justice for all" into the firepit when a slim majority determined who has rights and who doesn't. Apparently equality in America is a dead concept and prejudice and religious beliefs of the majority trump everything in the 'land of the free'. Whose rights shall they go after next? the blacks? the Hispanics? the Jews? the Catholics? Yours? To everyone who voted down the rights of the minority you are traitors. To go against the ideal that we are all created equal, that we all have the rights to life, liberty and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS is so anti American you don't deserve to live in this country and enjoy the rights and protections you have.

On the bright side, the vote was very close and as those older 'narrow minded' voters (you know the ones, they still use the n-word or 'col'erds') will pass on in the next few years and take their hatefulness into hell with them.

Am I being too harsh? Eh, deal with it.
