Eye 94

Eye 94 is an art brut tribute to the hot rod art of the 1960's, AND a critique of the carcinogenic car culture that is shortening the human race's life span on this planet. It is seven pages of photocopied art on green paper with hand printed covers on orange construction paper. Available now for $5 postage paid (or an interesting trade). E-mail me at to order.

Two More Word Possums

The Word Possums are three color relief prints, with "spontaneous" registration. Every Word Possum has something unique to say. These prints grew out of the collaborative book project "Work Posems"; drawings by yours truly and poems by John E, to be published by Shattered Wig Press in 2007.
