Latest Painting - “Maya”
“My life has been long, and believing that life loves the liver of it, I have dared to try many things, sometimes trembling, but daring, still.”
Civil rights activist, author, poet and hero to many - The beautiful and extraordinarily charismatic Maya Angelou returned to the stars today - I’ve been inspired to paint a small tribute piece - and It’s my pleasure to donate the painting to the "Please Touch Museum" in Philadelphia - Enriching the Lives of Children by Creating Learning Opportunities Through Play and Art.
Please feel free to download this high res image of the finished painting for your personal use.
[EDIT: I’ve had a couple of people accuse me of using her passing as an excuse to promote my own “artistic endeavors”. I sincerely hope that there aren’t folk that actually believe this. The painting is being donated to a children’s museum in Philadelphia, and I’ve made a high res file available as a free download for those wishing to print it for themselves. I didn’t brand the art with watermarks, it doesn’t link back to any site, or any store (my default tumblr settings post my website details, which I have removed on this post) - I didn’t even sign the painting with my full name, as I felt it would take away from the portrait of such a charismatic and important lady.
I truly hope it’s understood that I didn’t paint this portrait for monetary gain , or otherwise - If this is what you construe from this act of expressing my thanks to Maya and the people that already miss her, then I suggest you perhaps examine your own values.
I’m just sorry I had to type this.]

We proudly present our latest music collection, RIFFTRAX SINGS.
Yes, Bill Corbett, Mike Nelson and I have slipped on the fishing sweaters, broken out the banjo, rosined up the fiddle and tuned up the bow once again to bring you a harvest of songs and melodies we feel will touch your very pants.
Hearts. I meant “hearts.” I know I said “pants” but I meant “hearts.”
Okay, technically I wrote “pants” but we’re getting off track here.
These songs include rich traditional folk melodies mixed with the “hip” sounds of today. Songs about the things that really matter in our lives - voodoo, drinking, James Bond, kilt-wearing, dinosaurs, car chases, and, of course, ripping out the heart of the one you love and eating it while you watch them die.
All collected here for just for you. And others. So enjoy, tap your toes, dance, and know that these simple songs go out to you directly from our pants.
That’s not justice. If this country wants to move in that direction, then perhaps progressives nationally should reorganize into a “religion.” Sounds like a pretty cool perk: organize politically without the pesky IRS, and enshrine a bunch of political beliefs into a discriminatory legal code. But somehow I don’t think the Supreme Court would go for that. “Religious freedom” only goes in one direction: whatever misogynistic conservative men want.
