Have you heard the new top secret smart watch Apple is working on will give you real-time health status updates?
A few weeks ago marked the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death, which I believe is the “official” beginning to Gen Xers midlife crisis.
I don’t see any peers driving around with convertables and trophy wives. Maybe Generation X is handling the midlife transition better than our predecessors, or maybe we are just too cool to care (or at least act like it).
Anyway, here’s some detail images.
Download Free Print: Pete Seeger’s Banjo
Pete Seeger will always remain one of my personal heroes. It’s not his political activism that necessarily draws me to him, but rather how much he valued the things in life that really matter; how he truly believed you can change the world by getting people to sing together. I admire his commitment to working people and human rights, but it is his 70-year marriage that places him above others who I respect, into a special group of those I aspire to be.
Every time I hear him speak he manages to say something so wise it moves me instantly and stays with me permanently.
I once heard him say the happiest people he’s met are those who are hurting in some way.
At the time I was hurting pretty bad, and it was incredibly moving to hear someone else who understood how on earth I could be so completely happy.
New illustration for an article on what level we can or should forgive artists known to have taken advantage of young girls.
I have been totally excited at the prospective release of J.D. Salinger’s unpublished works, but then I learned of his relationship with 14-year-old Jean Miller.
What should our position as fellow artists be toward those among us who are guilty of violent, exploitative, oppressive behavior toward teens? Should we boycott Roman Polanski? What if all the accusations against Woody Allen are true?
Or must we find a way to separate the man from the art? To appreciate and enjoy a film without regard to the character of its creator?
A few editorial illustrations I’ve done recently, including an illustration on making connections at the holiday office party; the recent “Right to Work” vote that passed in Michigan; and one humorous illustration for Thanksgiving & pumpkin pie.
