I put a new piece of original art on canvas and some new prints in my shop. If you've read our books, you know that this PEAR art is really a self-portrait. Pears are usually the symbol I use for myself when I create art. I paired this pear with bold colors and drips to symbolize movement, chaos, and life. If you can be still in chaos, you win.
Today when I was at the grocery store buying more ice cream I could be one with, I saw something frightening~ the cover of Shape magazine. WTF? There were some young girls in line near me so I quickly turned the magazine over so no girls could be influenced into thinking that in order to look in shape you should starve yourself so much that your organs rebel and move to the outside of your body in search of food and nutrients. This woman (is she the "actress" from The Hills?) looks ill-seriously ill- and the words overlapping the skin covering her sticking out bones read DROP TEN POUNDS THIS MONTH. How sad. Even sadder is that there are more than ten people who thought this cover shot was a good idea. Dumb ASSES. I'm writing a letter to the powers that be at Shape, even though they requested a copy of Journal Revolution to review. If they think she looks like the picture of health, they won't like our book. We like food.
