I realized yesterday that morbid bunnies had become a growing trend in artwork and tagging. Morbid bunnies seem like the best idea because they are complete oxymorons that can be cute and brutal at the same time, which are two concepts everybody wants to convey at the same time. As a result, cute and cuddly bunnies are everywhere I look, doing vulgar things like eating flesh and jumping around in super space rocket suits in the stencils on the sidewalk. Because of this, last night I decided it was time to make a new tag. One that didn't remind me of Burlington. One that could go on things other than bulldozers. And one that wasn't mass produced in every other person's artwork in the city. And because I decided on my next tattoo being a lion of sorts, the lion in dozer stance has become my new icon and tag. I can draw it in under thirty seconds but I'm picking up some oak tag today anyway to make it a sidewalk stencil. If only I could exert all this time and energy into my homework...



Also, if all goes to plan, within the next couple months I'll have a spot in a gallery in the Mission where Bob knows the people in charge. I'm hoping to compile series' of pages from my books into five or six pieces, and I'm hoping people will drink a lot of wine and get really drunk and belligerently tell me my art rules.

Now tell me: Is that not the absolute best smile you have ever seen captured in a photograph? No other picture I've ever seen properly depicts the pure happiness and excitement behind the image and causing such a moment. He is smiling so outrageously that it almost doesn't look like him at all. I always thought it was hard to catch a trip on mushrooms in words, but here Nate has done it in one single picture that is undoubtedly worth a thousand. *Sigh* I recommend mushrooms in San Francisco to everyone.
