Riding Through The Fire & Taking The Blame Away From Those Who Deserve It

December 17, 2015
   Found a failed board this morning and since I am on deadline and should be working on something else, I just had to work on this new/old piece.

 Daily Whip Out: "All Around Him The Forest Popped
 And Crackled but Mickey Free Kept On Riding."

   And here was what I was supposed to be working on:

 Daily Whip Out: Rene Secretan #9"

   Gay Mathis commented that on my previous effort Rene looked too old. He's supposed to be a 16-year-old Paris punk. I like this expression because he seems a little freaked out by what he has just done and is still trying to look tough, but perhaps he has more dread than bravado.

Daily Whip Out: "Rene Secretan #10"

   Is he shocked? Mortified? Angry? Hard to say since his face is obliterated, just like Rene Secretan's tracks. Did he accidentally shoot Vincent van Gogh? I believe so. Vincent said a very telling thing to his brother before he died:

"Do not cry. I did it for the good of everybody."
—Vincent van Gogh

  1. I love that Mickey Free painting. The green with the fire effects is striking. And the Rene #9 is the best. He looks like he's saying, "oh shit, what did I do?"
