Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".

Cosmic Theatre Book Prototype
I'm going to be taking a class in making books by hand. It's taught by Sibyl Rubottom at her studio print shop, Bay Park Press, an artist's co-op. My goal is to create a prototype for my Cosmic Theatre book, plus I'm just interested in some of the more creative aspects of book creation. This will give me a chance to actually hold a physical copy of my work in my hands and feel how it reads. I'm working on doing some supplementary art and writing to flesh out the book as a whole, adding things like "About the Author" and "Foreword" pages. Just those little extras that help introduce the book to the reader instead of having them go in cold. Sibyl also teaches classes at the Athenaeum in La Jolla. Maybe you know her Marty?
