Intelligent Design

AFTER BREENING

Text says,
‘George Was Not Intelligently Designed!’

Although this is painted on another painting, this is a rare, completely original breen with no part of the former painting showing. The other day I was thinking about intelligent design, clearing my mind, trying to be open to it and seeing how it sat. And I realized, it could be true! Our whole universe could have been created in the test tubes of some super intelligent Alien race! In the Bible, God doesn’t seem too smart, just pretty angry most the time that people aren’t paying him enough attention, so it didn’t seem likely that he really created everything – but Aliens! Why not? Hell, we did it with the Genesis Project in an old Star Trek movie!

Text says, ‘George was not intelligently designed!’

However, the biggest argument against intelligent design is George, so I tried to come up here with a feasible explanation. It’s obvious his circuitry can’t handle the programming – his addiction to booze(bottles bobbing in his oil drum head) gave way to an addiction to religion(represented by fish). Our Alien creators stand by in dismay – God took on John Lithgow’s features because my wife was watching the Kinsey movie while I painted this. Most of the circuitry behind the text is of an actual lie detector, which obviously doesn’t work, and I’ve added some nonsensical symbols.

I smell t-shirt on this one.

John F. Jesus

‘John F. Jesus had better teeth than the other Jesus!’ acrylic on oil? on 27.5″X21.5″ on canvas including painted frame.

I’ve had this painting hanging around for awhile – no one wanted to pay the minimum for it when I first put it up for sale a year or 2 ago – Summer is usually a killer for my prices on Ebay, when the people who usually buy my art are getting enough sunshine to throw off their breen fever. Damn! But I rediscovered this painting when my buddy Fritz and I were goofing around and shot my mock commercial a month or so ago(He holds it up in the ad).

When I pulled it out, I noticed something that has bothered me for awhile – the bush genie looked much more like Ronald Reagan! So I just reworked him to resemble bush more, and gave him the requisite jesus hair and beard the other presidents have. America’s demon arch enemy is rubbing the lamp and bringing forth George, whom I’ve given a set of jackass ears for rising to the bait.

BEFORE AND AFTER

This is an industrial strength breen, and even more relevant now after the election than it was before considering the raging culture wars. And here we are on the front lines!

Mockingbird Sin

Text says, ‘It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird! But Angelcat doesn’t
care! + ‘Your cat loves you but would still eat you if it could!’

About About 28”X12” acrylic on paint by numbers on plywood. I picked
up these bad cats in the flea market and glued them to a piece of plywood
I found in the barn. It’s pretty much a complete paint over. You’ll
notice the ying yangy design, but let’s face it, cats are mostly bad,
even the good ones.

AFTER BREENING

Mrs. Breen and I brought a bunch of our stuff to Brimfield(largest fleamarket in this part of the country)last week to sell, and I brought along a couple of paintings including this one, hung them up and listened. Sometimes people would giggle and move on, others would gasp and say, “that’s just disgusting!” casting dirty looks.

But a few tried to buy the art, shocked when I threw a big number at them – “but it’s funny!”(so it should be cheap!) But I really just wanted people to see my art, and see them seeing it. A guy from Tufts came by and asked me to send him past show info, publications mentioning me, etc., for possibility of show consideration. Then Ken Brown, famous artist, cartoonist, illustrator, post card and wrapping paper maker, etc., came by and gave me an ego boost, saying he liked my art. A very nice guy! After Mrs. Breen found out who he was and started the appropriate gushing, I belatedly joined in and caused a minor breach of etiquette by forcing a breen upon him! Ahhhh! Brown’s trash has never looked so colorful!
