Pie in the sky

For a summer solstice event at Hamtramck art space Popps Packing, a music/performance/art show inspired by both Sun Ra and Carl Sagan, I took a quote of Sagan's from the original "Cosmos" series to its literal conclusion. I baked four apple pies, decorated them with the quote, and wrote and printed a '70s-style recipe card for Apple Pie a la Sagan. Here's a photo of the resulting "art/pie piece," along with the recipe - cut out and keep! (Or contact me about getting your own hard copy, ready for your recipe index file.)

Pounce on this!

So glad to finally be able to share this illustration, the cover art for the upcoming book “The Deeds of Pounce” by my pal Benjamin Wachs — a tale of goblins adventuring through San Francisco! Pick up your copy via the publisher, Beating Windward Press.

Film history humor

Another swipe at the administration via Photoshop collage. I admit this was inspired at first by Karen Pence's hairdo, but the rest fell into place, as things often do with parody pieces like this. It helps if you know the poster to the 1986 Jonathan Demme movie first, of course.

Art history humor...

I channeled my inner John Heartfield, and hijacked Domenico Ghirlandaio's famous painting, to come up with this bit of obscure political commentary...

Speaking of art history, here's an illustration I did for the in-house volunteer docent scheduling web page at the Detroit Institute of Arts. When in Detroit, be sure to visit the Detroit Industry murals by Diego Rivera. If you're really lucky, I'll be there to tell you all about them!
