Let the impure ink you drip
Drop with the blood of your
In this world
Let your sharp tip
Slash through the layers
Of your bourgeois hypocrisy
Write and awaken!
Can’t you hear
Tears dripping down the “motherland”
Where dissidents are Silenced
Into the void
Of echoless mountains
Wake up from your slumber of ages
Can’t you see the trail of bodies, bones and dust
Left through your ageless sleepwalking?
Write if you feel like it
Draw if you feel like it
Dance like a brush
Ruptured in joy
Allow your ink-tears flow
Into those coarse sheets of paper
Let words rise and fall and flood
Yes let it flood so new seeds can be sown
In the coming Spring!
Perhaps during these ‘troubled’ times it’s alright to make fun of whatever that comes to mind with my amateur cartooning skills. I ain’t no pro cartoonist but that doesn’t stop me from having some fun and making fun of people and events. Enjoy! It is much necessary to go out and use that inner compassion to help make the world a better place for all of us but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying life with all its flaws and stupidity and beauty.

This oil sketch was developed through an exercise with a white deer cardboard statue. I thought that instead painting the statue as it was, I would use colors to give life to this deer head statue. What if this deer had feelings? I remembered the paintings of Franz Marc, German expressionist, who made the famous painting “Fate of the Animals”. Here is a link to that painting. http://www.franzmarc.org/images/paintings/fate-of-the-animals.jpg
