Oodles of Doodles from The Way Back Machine

I found an old sketchbook of mine from around 15 or so years ago and thought I would share where me noggin was at that time. A little back story: I was working graveyard shift at West Knox News in Knoxville, which is a “bookstore” which also sells “novelties” and “marital aids” and “foot long plastic wienies”. And lots and lots of  wippits…or whippits..or Whipits..not sure of the proper spelling on that…I was also heavy into collecting action figures and other manly toys. I was single and had figured out how to breathe beer instead of normal air. I had no phone of any kind, just a pager with an elaborate series of codes . I lived in  an apartment the size of a walk-in closet: i could literally open the fridge and from my bed while washing my hands in the “bathroom” sink. It was cozy and quaint and had curb side recycling, aka “bums picking up my beer cans i left on the porch”……ANYWHO, this is some of my “art” work from back then…Warning: titties!!!

and i didn’t get tacos yesterday , sorry

Japanese Blockprints up for Auction!

http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/10615126_group-of-6-japanese-colored-woodblock-prints

 

These lovely works of art make were found at a rummage sale and purchased for 110 Amurican dollars. My silent partner and I researched them thoroughly and finally decided to send them to auction at Case Antiques in Knoxville, TN. The quality of these prints is amazing: the colors are crisp and bright, the woman on the boat is particularly nice , i think. And the two smaller prints, which are matted are almost 60’s style, especially the figures in front of the temples. They almost remind me of a classic Chuck Jones cartoon, in the most sincerely flattering manner. They are part of an auction of almost 900 pieces ranging from Anna Catherine Wiley to Evidence use in the case of  James Earl Ray. I plan on attending the auction in person, if they will let po’folk in, where i will sit on my hands and make no gestures of any kind. Our woodblock prints already have 5 bids in , although i’m not totally sure how the silent bid thing works, but I assume having bids before the auction starts is probably a good thing. Check it out and pass it on, if’n you would…>
