Newsstands in the 70’s as art school

October 8, 2010

For me, the 60’s was an introduction to illustration and solidifying a foundation for drawing. I was at the perfect age to get swept up in the pop culture of the time.

Niche Shows on TV Majors Struggle to Survive

May 4, 2009

The majors always build up ones hopes by greenlighting niche programs. They want that bunch of desertees to come back. But their profit margins are too high for these kind of shows. So, they usually die too soon and take our hopes of good television with them.

Hollywood Has Become Lazy Town

February 11, 2009

Then I saw Taken at the cinema and realized just how bad our entertainment values have slipped. We’re all in Lazy Town from that perspective. Taken offers nothing new. Not even a spin on traditional formulas.

GOP Reference Sheet

Perhaps the next time someone from the GOP wants to try to smear a political opponent they might want to consult this handy dandy chart. It’s illustrated in a way to make it easy for anyone to understand, even politicians.
