Kids at War, Artists at Peace

February 28, 2020
   Finding some great photos of Mexican Revolution art reference for my latest project. How about this stunner, posted by Samuel K. Dolan:

Kids at War: Mexican Revolution

   According to Sam, this came out of the scrapbook of John R. Peavey at The University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley. I've asked for a high res of this, for a feature we want to do on kids at war.

   Meanwhile in the campfire glow arena. . .

Daily Whip Out: "Pendejos In Firelight 2"

   Thanks to my good friend, Mort Mortensen, I was reminded of an earlier attempt at black blocks of design. Sometimes I forget how good I am and have to rediscover my strengths. That may sound cocky, but it's actually more of a dementia related confession.

Daily Whip Out: "Bandito Smirk"

   Like so many others, I am trying to find peace with myself in terms of my artistic efforts. Not easy to do because we are constantly fighting against our own deficiencies. 

"Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide."
