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."

Puckish humor


The photo of this impromptu "art installation" I made at Cafe 1923 was such a hit on Facebook I decided to post it here, what the heck.

Detroit is never having to say you're sorry


Happy New Year, TMWJ fans. The first entry for 2015 is actually old news, but over on the Metro Times blog they've posted the brochure boosting the Motor City that I illustrated last year for the Detroit Bus Co., called "We're Not Sorry." If you didn't come across a hard copy while out and about town, now you can take a peek!
