“Welcome to Hell”

Ukraine angst has been foremost in my mind of late, so I did more art relating to the war. This is a grade-schooler in any town – Ukraine as the Russians switch tactics from decapitation to the senseless slaughter of civilians. The war needs to stop. #stoprussia

Ukrainian Girl in Field

The war in Ukraine is omnipresent in my thoughts; mostly for its humanitarian and global consequences. Although, I am and always will be a supporter of the Russian people, their culture, and language, I side with Ukraine in this pointless conflict. I pray that all the civilians and soldiers on both sides (because soldiers inContinue reading “Ukrainian Girl in Field”

Aware

This #digitalart started as a #doodle but because I watch so many saddening #crime shows, it became about #domesticviolenceawareness For the victim, listen, don’t judge, and offer meaningful help. And for gods sake, if you see something say something, like, to 911. #EndViolence

Nature Finds a Way

She’ll survive us all. She’s the strongest woman we know, she’s nature. Climate change? She’s survived it. High CO2? Easy. Humans, not so much. But she just may have mercy on us when we’ve wiped ourselves off the face of the planet. Here? A post-human photoshoot. We took her trees, her resources, her valuables, butContinue reading “Nature Finds a Way”

A Passing of the Quiet

For a few brief moments, there was peace as the battle faded into the distance, she looked around the remains of the building, which had once housed happy children of any town USA, before politics, demagoguery, and all-around hatred, driven home by media sensationalism caused an unrepairable rift in the country. She thought of thoseContinue reading “A Passing of the Quiet”

Butterfly on a Wheel

This digital art (because what else would it be) started because I was listening to the song of the same name by the Mission UK, off their Carved in Sand Album. Extrapolating from there, I looked up the idiom, butterfly on a wheel, and found that it originated from Alexander Pope’s 1735 poem “Epistle toContinue reading “Butterfly on a Wheel”

Who Will Survive America?

This digital artwork originated while I was listening to Amiri Baraka’s “Who Will Survive America?” Although the song originated in the heights of the 1960’s Black Power movement and kind of has race-war overtones, the heart of it is that only those who are not racist will survive the country. P.s. the dude is anContinue reading “Who Will Survive America?”

Abandoned America

A digital painting for our times. The subject can be anyone in modern America, a veteran, someone with PTSD like a victim of sexual assault, someone financially ruined by medical bills or loss of a job, or a victim of mental health issues or addiction. Homelessness is not discriminatory, it can affect anyone with redContinue reading “Abandoned America”

Dreams of the 99 Percent

As we head towards a dystopian future where the rich 1% keep the rest of us (the 99%) fighting each other over political and social ideals, while they cart-off the peoples resources under the guise of public service – oh, wait, it’s already happening. Uh, okay then. I decided to get a little more grittyContinue reading “Dreams of the 99 Percent”
