I was being nice with the title of this blog post.

For this blog, I’ve more or less stayed away from politics, except for the webcomic Shitty Mickey and occasional mentions of Occupy Wall Street. That was way back when, however. In late 2016, it’s a whole other matter. What 2017 will bring is very unnerving.

Getting to the point, I’m not happy with the current president-elect. I think he’s unfit for office, and a very dangerous man. The last thing you need to read is yet another blog offering up political opinions. So I’ll let the below image speak for itself.

I was aiming for tacky, lewd and orange. Oh, and the hashtag I got from Instagram. So thanks Instagram.

Who knows what 2017 will bring. Perhaps the electoral college will change their votes, or he will get impeached. Pence, his VP is actually worse, but Pence is also a career politician – also less likely to press that red nuclear button. Following Pence is Paul Ryan. Basically we’re doomed.

Never have I been so grateful to live in a blue state in all my life.

In general, 2016 has been a wretched year. For me personally, it’s been kind. On an international level, not so much. What’s worse is for all the nonsense news we hear such as Kayne West meeting up with Trump, Aleppo was being bombed. Hell, I even surprised myself by shedding a tear for Mohammad Alaa Jaleel. He’s better known as “The cat man of Aleppo.” If you don’t know who he is, you should. A fellow cat lover who risked his life to help care of all the stray and abandoned cats in war torn East Aleppo. He has everything to lose and nothing to gain by taking care of these animals, but he has something that’s becoming increasingly rare today – compassion. If anyone deserves the Noble Peace Prize, it’s him.

Enough of my soap box. I’ve made greeting cards out of that repulsive image that resembles Cheetos man. I’m NOT going to be selling these cards at every future event. If I decide to, i’ll be very selective as to where. Regardless, these will be available on demand. If you want this card, you can send $3.00 to PayPal. Some of the proceeds from this card will be donated to charity. Just haven’t decided which one as of yet. Maybe it’ll be a feminist organization, an LGBT group, or for Standing Rock, or towards the Cat Man of Aleppo. As long as it’s a reputable charity. We’ll see how many are actually sold. Regardless. Buy a card for someone you loathe.

#trumpsucksballs greeting card. Dec. 2016.

For the past month, I’ve been passing this wall inside the Union Square subway station in NYC. Here’s some of the photos I’ve taken. I also added to this Post-It wall. Some of the Post-It notes are now being archived.

You can kinda tell which ones I did. And yeah…I did the testicles one too.

  2016 has been an overwhelming year. It’s enough to make anyone misanthropic. So before I go, I’ll leave you with this meme. Cause if you’re going to be misanthropic, make sure it’s everyone equally.

Truth

Here’s a candid blog post for you.

In my life, out of everyone I’ve met, only two or three have been completely honest. Honest with themselves, and with others. My mother was the most honest person I knew. She couldn’t lie even if she wanted to.

Well, except for one thing. She was lying to herself about how happy she was with my father.

Anyway. Due to this, I now realize I was never prepared to deal with chronic liars, or manipulators. Everything I learned in this department, was learned the hard way. I’m still learning. Being vulnerable is a dangerous place to be.

So why am I bringing this up? Recently someone asked “Do you believe everything that you’re told?” Not necessarily. I don’t believe the media. I don’t believe politicians. Hell, I don’t even believe the MTA will be running on time. You see, I’m actually quite cynical, except when it comes to matters of the heart. Playing with someone’s emotions is one of the cruelest things you can do. Nonetheless it happens every second of the day. It’s almost accepted now, as a means of survival. That’s the scariest part. As well as the saddest. Humanity is a beast. Thus the older one gets, the more illusions crumble. 

The person who had asked me that question was a chronic liar himself. The trickster is not always the funniest.

Had this phone conversation the other night. Something he said had really disturbed me.

I’m not going to reveal my age, but let’s just say that if I had wanted a child, time is running out. Got to thinking about how fast life goes by, and with that, it hit me unexpectedly hard. Strangely, I started to ponder…what it would like to be a mother. Then I got depressed about how much was wasted in relationships that went nowhere, etc. You see, life is too short after all.

I began drawing this personal piece. Decided to call it ‘Mother’ for now, although ‘Mother Destruction’ fits better. It also came to mind cause Mother Destruction is also a name of a Neofolk/Electronica band. The dystopian elements were added after listening to Sopor Aeternus during the afternoon. Not music to play where you’re feeling particularly moody, but it proved to be a good influence on this drawing :

Summer 2012 is almost over. Quite an interesting past few months. Actually, quite an interesting year. Well, for me anyway.

Speaking candidly, I feel as if I’m at some sort of crossroad, or crossroads. Whatever decisions I make won’t be easy, and could possibly effect many others around me.

Although I semi-joke about being misanthropic, deep down inside I don’t wish people any ill will.

I often wonder about where I’m going with my schooling, my art, politics in general, etc. Observing other people, I start to worry. It seems for every step forward, we also take a step backward. Fear of change? Sheep mentality? Who knows? All I know is that if Mitt Romney gets elected as president, the US will be going to hell in a hand basket. Obama wasn’t my first choice either, but right now it’s definitely a battle between the lesser of the two evils.

Anyway…what I did manage is to get my work exhibited a few times. Back in June, I was invited by someone to take part in the Bushwick Open Studios weekend. However, after the first night, my instincts started to kick in. Saturday afternoon I pulled my artwork down, and it was just in the nick of time. Afterwards, I had my ink drawings and paintings shown at a local place, The Hi-5 in Ridgewood, Queens. Luckily, that was more successful.

In addition, I contributed artwork for some horror comic book anthology, which should be released this Fall. Possibly October. Soon word came down that my request regarding a professional pass for the New York Comic Con 2012 was accepted.

Mostly though, I was exhausted, taking a much needed break. Spent most nights putting about on Facebook, painting while simultaneously checking out all the cat memes on my news feed.

Some good came out of it though. Made some friendships, with one being a (hopefully) deep connecting one. This friendship is what I’m eluding to, when I speak about being on some sort of crossroads. Who knows?

Whatever the outcome, eventually I have to grow up…somewhat.

Forgot what I had named this piece. Space Stripper? Anyway, this was shown at the Space Art Porn show at the Hi-5. August 201

UPDATE Sept.19th, 2012: The Space Stripper painting seen in the above photo has been sold. If you’re interested in purchasing my other work, please contact me via email. Witchipoo@witchesbrewpress.net
