Knit Graffiti, skeletons, and crushed can art


"Peace Pole" photo by c.bayrak

Not much major artwork being done as our skeleton crew (jafagirls) are busy taking photographs for a postcard series, working on a grant, and preparing work for free art friday coming up this week. Here is one of the crushed can paintings I did for free art.

Who is Briana Sewage?

Briana Sewage is the female version of Brian Sewell. He earned the enmity of people in the Northeast of England after some of his comments regarding art in the North. You can hear him on a radio clip on the bbc news website (link is at the right). I'll let you draw your own conclusions about him, but I do believe he would be an excellent recipient of the booger award. If anyone isn't familiar with who he is, he is a British art critic who talks EVER so, EVER so posh and is often the target of comedy groups such as Dead Ringers.
Talking about Peace: number 13:00 Blair offers a peace road map to resolve the tom and jerry conflict.

thanks sarah. I don't know who has more fun with the skeleton, us or the public. She certainly gives people a good chuckle and brings out the puns and jokes.

Your commitment to building an art scene is an inspiration to us all. Plus your humor is catching. Your posts always leave me smiling.

I am an OIF veteran and I try to keep my feelings to myself since I want to keep my honarable discharge and I am in the IRR until Dec 2009, ........
like over 5 years wasn't enough, but if you get a bad discharge from the IRR, it supercedes your honorable from active duty and then you aren't eligible for VA, and all the other social programs, people take for granted like unemployemnt insurance, food stamps, medicare etc,
........and to think this if I had never served, it wouldn't make a difference,
they get you by the BALLS, LOL
but I do love America and its RIDICULOUSNESS
