But Reagan was a Great Leader, and if only he were the Eternal President of the United States of America, we would all be so much better off!

I sometimes wonder if that's not what some of the modern conservatives think. The jackasses who put up the massive Reagan portrait at my university's Randian-Reaganite publication probably feel that way.

I wonder myself and I feel ashamed for admitting this but... i have a cousin that's named after Reagan. Does this help describe the fragging conservatown I'm working with lol
I don't regret burning my bridges. I regret that some people weren't on those bridges when I burned them.

It's in every family. Didn't Chris Rock say that the people you hate the most will end up in your family?

I used to think that I am an artist, but as it turns out, I am only the art's version of a macktivist (mackartist?)

I really like that. The colors you picked are great.

Whoa, that's pretty cool. Are they just collages in general or do you do a lot of political ones, too?

Whoever said it, it makes sense. In my case they make up my entire family.

Not everything has a political message attached, it risks reducing art to demagogery.

Uh, wrong thread?

I agree if you add that "not everything need have a political message attached".

This is my favourite painting in Hull's Ferens, Ulysses and the Sirens. Click on it for more detail. Probably NSFW. Such intensity, the oarsmen barely resisting tempation...excellent!

I realize this thread has been long dead, but I really did not want to start an entirely new thread dedicated to resident artists. I graduated from a small art school 2 years ago and have just been working so that I can keep funding my art and hopefully one day make it my full time job.

Just recently started customizing vinyl figures. I was working on a series dedicated to historical revolutionaries. This is the Lenin figure I did.
