Judith Again...

Sorry if you've seen this before, old-timers, but I'm reposting my "Judith" silkscreened mini-comic so it'll be easier to scroll thru when I link to it on Facebook for the "5 Day Art Challenge" meme that's going around. It'll be nicer this time, easier to read, trust me.

For the uninitiated, here's what I said in '06 when I first posted this:

"I first created this mini-comic version of the story of the apocryphal/Biblical heroine Judith a few years ago using the Print Gocco screenprinter. I printed 150 copies or so and hand-stitched the binding.

Judith was a favorite subject of 17th century painter Artemisia Gentileschi, whose Judiths, unlike those of her male contemporaries, actually looked capable of and predisposed to sawing a man's head off his shoulders. One of Artemisia's masterpieces is here in the Detroit Institute of Arts, a suspensful post-beheading Judith scene."


No need to apologize for the repost -- the more people see this, the better, because it's brilliant.

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.

Some photos

All shot with my aging iPhone. The DSLR is not quite as handy.

Somewhere in Time

...on page 58, actually, of the August 29, 2016 issue of Time magazine. That's where there's a small photo of the Little Library I painted, the one in front of the Hatch Art gallery! So that's a first.
