Garbage IN, Garbage OUT

A name is just a name

We’re all the same from whence we came

From a sprouting bud to shiny toy

It is all but a fleeting joy

Seasons changes, mind’s erased

Nature desires a new taste

mesmerizing round about

Garbage in and garbage out

“Garbage In Garbage Out.” 16″x20″ acrylic on canvas.

Where wild things go

“Wild Things Go”. 24″x36″. acrylic on stretched canvas.

Wild Things Go

She stepped out into the moonlight

To shower in its glow

But she could feel somebody watching

And retreated into the forest

Where all the wild things go

Keep Your Feet Off The Ground


Keep Your Feet Off The Ground

step left

step right

keep the balance with your feet

flap flap flap

till it lifts you off your seat

you don’t know

and I don’t know

so we both go with the flow

this thing will only fly

when we learn to let go

After returning to Germany, he would soon leave again, this time to America to escape the kaisers military draft. He first went to New York City before settling in Chicago to start the Eugene Dietzgen Drafting Company.  He was heavily influenced by one of is fathers favorite philosophers, Karl Marx.

A friend of mine’s grandfather worked at the company and I was asked to make a painting for his daughter. It’s located in Lincoln Park near DePaul.

MIKE’S BIKES

img_0849Finished the gas tank for the new bike Mike is building (You don’t know Mike? You should. He builds bikes.)  Inspired by the movie “Hardware” and the Public Image Limited song, “This Is What You Want, This Is What You Get”.  Some how a burning city landscape seemed fitting. Looking to do something on the rear fender next.
