Andy


In the early 1980's, I was going to a movie in the afternoon. Andy Warhol and a friend were on the line in front of me to get their tickets. No one said a word or bugged him at all. That's what it was like in 1980's NYC. Not a camera phone in sight.

Bullhead


This drawing was done on-site at our pal's lake house. This catfish looking creature is called a bullhead. A deceased one washed up on the shore. I drew the houses from a kayak. These homes were not located near each other, I took creative license to move them around. So I had to paddle to find the ones I liked and then angle the kayak in the direction I wanted to draw each. The way I sketch is not so easy. Don't try this at home unless supervised by an adult.

Food


Have we lost touch with how our food is really grown? This city dweller has.

Making America Not So Great


The Trump administration is moving to reverse rules barring hunters on some public lands in Alaska from baiting brown bears with bacon and doughnuts and using spotlights to shoot mother black bears and cubs hibernating in their dens. The National Park Service issued a notice in May of its intent to amend regulations for sport hunting and trapping in national preserves. Under the proposed changes, hunters would also be allowed to hunt black bears with dogs, kill wolves and pups in their dens, and use motor boats to shoot swimming caribou. These and other hunting methods are condemned as cruel by wildlife protection advocates and famed illustrator, Tommy Kane. The only thing us vegans hunt for is ripe avocados at farmer's markets. I think the Trumps want to buy this painting of mine to hang in Mar-a-Largo.
