Quatros - collect them all


half opened

half closed

drawing - painting

classical - romantic

particle - wave

mass - force

some people row

some people drift

in my dreams

I can fly

What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning.… Continue

Return of Quizzicals

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

Bear with me on this - it rambles. A scientist, in 1900, took some chicken wire and a board and made a maze to test the smarts of his lab rats. You've seen a thousand cartoons on this with every variation. Sooner or later some have humans in the rat race. But this is no science question. The scientist based his maze - it was an exact copy - on a formal garden, that was indeed for humans. Name the garden.

IS,… Continue

Set of Self Portraits

Dear Musea Readers,

Self Portraits

Decades of drawing and painting have given me the ability to draw and paint out of thin air – that is I can make it up and it looks fairly real. OK so far. But I notice that when I do a male figure, it seems to always turn into someone that looks a lot like me. Here is a set of self portraits.…

Box of Art (Why Mass Market Paintings - pt 2)

Box of Art (Why Mass Market Paintings, Part 2)

Part of Postmod Art, or the revolution in painting, is the mass production of paintings or gliclees” on canvas. They can be made so exact that you could line up 4 copies and the original on the wall – all of them in the same frame – and no one could tell which is the original.

Let painting join the other mass marketed arts: lit/books, film/dvd, music/records. Then it too will become as popular as books, films and… Continue

Full of ideas (and actually WORKING on some of them!)

I am full of ideas for zines right now. I'm writing them all down to make sure I won't lose any of them.

And I am working on my first ever zine. It will be about my weekly four to five hour train rides. I'm almost done with the text but I'll need to take some photos this weekend.

I've never been so close to actually completing a zine. Pretty exciting :)

Junk Drawer Workshop

Junk Drawer held the first ever Junk Drawer Workshop.  It took place at CHIPRC, the Chicago Publishers Resource Center.

I talked a little about the history of the Junk Drawer zine.

Then we passed around a junk drawer stocked full of pre-selected odds & ends, and everybody found something of interest and wrote about it.  People brought in their own junk drawer objects too, so there was a bit of…

I got hold of a scanner and wanted to post up the first issue for everybody. I made it with the idea in mind that our audience for this issue would be geared towards people in our community who have never heard of zine's, punk rock, diy or any of that. Especially kids an teens that we…

When I read about people critisizing punk rock, I think it sounds pretty unfair. I'm too old to be a punk rocker now, but I still do comics for punks, and know a few punks. A lot of the people you read talking shit about how stupid punk rockers are, they have college degrees and shit. That's not really fair for somebody that's all edumuhcated to pick on people that are stupid like me. I just got my G.E.D, and it was really hard! I've only been using a computer for like 5 years. I don't want…
