In Mod We Trust (updated)

A tribute to Wiggo and his remarkable, historical feat. Never really thought I'd see the like.

I watched an interview on YouTube of this fine musician, and did a sketch of him. Musical polyglot and restless musical inquirer, Bob "I'm having trouble to tell the difference between how Britney Spears' music sounds and how tanks sound going to Baghdad" Brozman.

More Fish.

Two new 'Price of Fish' canvases.

Hopefully to be for sale at the Found Gallery, Dunbar, soon.

Collected Works

At present there are five more 'Price of Fish' canvases in the studio* in varying stages of completion and I started wondering what they would all look like together. 

I think this is all of them, including the dredger that kicked the whole idea off. A pleasing number of these are sold and dispersed across the country, and it's still an odd feeling to know that I might never see them again but someone somewhere is seeing them - and hopefully, enjoying them - every day. 

It's an idea I don't seem to be getting tired of; it's really hit a nerve with me, and, it would seem, other people too.

To each according to his clogged residue, from each according to a very reasonable range of service charges.
