Cutesy Mural Thing

Here is a little mural thing I made for Cooper's classroom. They've temporarily turned one of the corners of the room into a little shop area.

The Way Out

A few weeks ago I had one of those epic, powerful, symbol-drenched dreams that leaves it's footprints all over your psyche for a good long time. This (bad, lazy) drawing shows the last "scene" of the dream: I found myself in a big room filled with people selling and yelling about their different dogmas and "answers" to all the Big Questions. It was like a big bazaar-- loud, confusing, claustrophobic-- and I just wanted to get out of there. I think I said, in my exasperation, something like, "How do I get out of here?" And, that's when I looked over and saw this: A heart-shaped tunnel of brick in the wall, and outside the window I saw someone running away--Free!

Cool, eh? Love is the answer, I guess.

Fittest, Most Qualified

So, this is the archetypal American Man of Power. Sure, there are exceptions to the rule, but most of them look like this. I suppose I'll look like this in 30 years or so, so maybe I'll run for office-- or I'll stab enough backs and step on enough faces to get up that ladder my ownself! Sure, sure I will.
This drawing was inspired by J. Edgar Hoover. I drew it while I was watching the documentary The U.S. Vs. John Lennon over at
