Film history humor (Political Collage, Part 2)

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!

Some photos

Brodhead Armory, Detroit

All shot with my aging iPhone. I need to drag out the DSLR again soon, but it's not quite as handy.

My brother-in-law down by the Detroit River, on an improvised chair made from
a burned shopping cart, two planks, and a piece of styrofoam. (Appropriate,
since he's known for making music with found objects — "junk funk."
