A mazing calendar for next year. The one called 2014. I guess you either get it. Or you don’t.

 

Just because time is linear by measure does not automatically make it coherent to perception. As such there are no ‘bad’ or ‘good’ days. The days are just what you decide to make of them and if you don’t, somebody else probably will. Either way: all your days are numbered and if you’d like a highres pdf of this/these, hit me with an email in the comments. Have a nice day.2014

It is well known that when you do anything, unless you understand its actual circumstances, its nature and its relations to other things, you will not know the laws governing it, or know how to do it, or be able to do it well.

“The right foot” has been put down. Onward we go at a steady pace. The soundtrack alternates between Emily Wells, Savages, Steven Reich and some Deftones

↓ “The right foot” (800 x 495) is finished. Good riddance to that and fare well. It was nice to get you out of my mouth.

“Art is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. There lies its immense value. For what it seeks is to disturb monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine.”

Oscar Wilde,
“The Soul of a Man Under Socialism” (1891)

The demise of a culture.

I used to be more Danish than half of my genes actually call for.

That included all the modesty, the charms, offs and quirks that came with being part of a populace barely big enough to form two teams to play sports.

The high degree of extrovert tolerance and integrity of yonder times is far gone and the above is my testimonial.

Eight boards in progress including a finished “Nine for a Kiss”. That one has had its title amended.

↓  “Damages / Nine for a Kiss” (700 x 425) is finished.
The Danish name for the Magpie (Pica Pica) is “Skade” which means injury or damage. Superstition has many names and in this case it comes with a lovely plumage.

↓ “The right foot” (800 x 495) So this is getting close to the finish line. Those red things are myelin sheaths. They wrap around and insulate your axons. Sometimes they get damaged and the current gets fucked. Loss of bandwidth ensues etc.800x495800x495800x495

You might still see a penis there. Good. Nothing like Cowper’s fluid hn?

“Drive” is done. One is almost there, another one has been deflowered, my foot has come down oversized and another 2 are in priming stages. Work progresses as Bowie sings about a hollow tree and Ari Hoenig plays in 5/8th’s.
