Aloha From My Studio, Coffee, Jazz, Great Company........for an early morning review of my latest intention of application, the few supplies, I have scrounged up from others similar journey & path. I try to convince myself as late that I live in poverty as a sacrifice in some unholy arrangement with the universe. (or mufti-verse, like my existence) Some people get it! Yes, I Loved Women, and procreated with numerous Beautiful, Intelligent, Compassionate, Loving, & Caring, Oversexed, Alcoholic & Drug Dependent Bitches. I am a European Descendant of “Gypsy's, Travelers, & Thieves”. I live on the Ocean at Reeds Bay Resort Hotel in Hilo, Hawaii. My studio faces a building with a sliver of view of the ocean at Reeds Bay. I have a Beach Park next door and a 40 acre Japanese Garden a few blocks away. A shower, kitchenette, Connectivity, and refrigerator with a microwave make it possible to be Creative and complete Projects. I try to work in some aspect each day, even if I am moving around to different Islands. So, this is my home base that I never could afford. The base cost exceeds my budget, so I try not to think about it and the bills, threats, and constant e-mail and phone harassment have subsided means I am a normal person that is “BUSY”.

If you spent millions during your life, would you be considered a millionaire, if it was unpaid credit and items accepted and never paid for??? The SCAM is a New York and L.A. Trait for Survival. I Laugh at the Folly and comic relief it brings to watch others lose their money and possessions and really get shook up..........when they have no compassion for others. The Crime Boss getting Scammed or The Banker, Police Chief, Mayor, or Boss getting caught up in a Scandal. Headlines are made for that. Now, I have worked Long & Hard, but remained celibate in this 21st Century. I wouldn't have been able to share the Recession with anyone. The pain and loss that occurred when I became Blind and needed corrective surgery that I could not afford, and all family, friends, and society cast me aside. The V.A. Gave me a stipend and eventually an Operation that allowed me to see sufficiently, with lens replacement Surgery. It's a Miracle. I created a few hundred Images in the medium of Oil/Canvas that Represent “Pidgin X-Press” My New School of Art. I Created it with a Project Image at the stroke of midnight 1/1/2000 that followed with 66 Large Format Images in the medium of Oil/Canvas that took a year to dry. (cure) Since, I expected rejection from Art Society I contacted them and as usual there wasn't any Interest. Perfect..........If I was a Controlled Minion of Art Societies, my Existence would be unnecessary. I am the Spark that lit the Fire in some cases a “Pyromaniac on the Internet” sparking Controversy over Grave Social & Political Issues....... I have been Banned from over 40 sites and censored as many times as an “Art Spammer”.

Paint, Paint, Paint......Rejection, Insult to Integrity, Disownment, Laughing Stock, Arrest, & Confinement, Assassination Attempts, Death Threats, Drug Ingestion Supplied by Big Brother & Home Delivery Systems paid in full by U.S. Taxpayers. Opiate Therapy to ease the constant pain mixed-up with some Herbal preparations to form a daily cocktail just so I can “Live” a NORML Life...... My latest Images are, “Uncounterfeiterable”. Layers & Layers with unusual tools to create textures & patterns unreproducible even by Myself. I am Safe & Cozy in My Studio where my poverty is loss of family contact and support. God Bless Them because they are just Human.

My Art Career started as a youth of 7 years of age in the community of West Allis, Wisconsin where I was attending school at Washington Elementary on 64th and Lapham Street. The District had a juried Art Show for every child in the elementary category and I took home the Blue Ribbon for my oil/painting of the Washington Monument measuring 3ft X 20in. I was Artdicted ever since. I have always used my creative abilities to support myself in a manner of wealth and pleasure afforded a few.
At 62 years of age I am one of the most proliferate Artists ever in the history of Hawaii. I presently, have hundreds of Images, in my possession and continue to be creative everyday. I managed to survive my trekking experiences, in 54 countries ,and spread my work around the World, thru the support of gracious benefactors, that paid for my Images, with money, and trades, for goods and services. I look back on the constant state of affairs, with my financial ability to mismanage, and am stupefied, as to how it all works. I was in Tibet and didn’t have supplies, but a local approached me with a wooden box, full of supplies from Germany, some other Trekker left. It contained pigments, brushes, knives, linseed and stand oil with a few large tubes of White and a few squares of canvas that had been covered with “Old School” Gesso, that consisted of French Rabbit skin glue. Because of my Luck, I was able to complete 3 mountainous images when the flowers were in bloom and negotiate them into enough currency and transportation to India, in the Beach Community of Goa. Art, was my Salvation this entire Life, and my Mistress. I t allowed me to avoid hard Labor and strenuous activity. I have always been spoiled and lived a life of luxury for no other reason than Art. Now, I have no Gallery or even get out to try and sell my Images and still manage too, every so often. I also trade and barter and have acquired numerous costly items like my Mercedes-Benz, and a Nikon Camera with a 30mm to 130mm telescoping lens, plus vacations all expense’s paid at a Resort called Paniolo Greens for 10 days. I owe this all to God’s Gift and my continued application of Oil/Canvas.
My travels into primitive areas with indigenous people has always been a Great Influence on me and I always tried to reciprocate their generosity with a fair exchange of knowledge and goods I brought and decided to leave, like my Images. This is a Magnificent Existence and an unbelievable journey as I continue to Create “Original” Images in the medium of Oil/Canvas.
My personal Life is Private because I am not successful in Relationships. I believe it is an additional disability to the others I have, that allows me a pension with a 100% rating from the Veterans Administration and HUD’s voucher program that pays half the rent, and the $76 worth of food stamps granted because of my financial status in “Paradise”. I live in a Resort Hotel Studio, with a Kitchenette, on the Ocean, in Reeds Bay, and we have a Laundromat, and a pool. We have a 30 acre Park, that is the largest Japanese Garden outside of Japan. It is my front yard, and the ocean is my backyard, where I can swim with the giant turtles, and occasional dolphins, with whales offshore, in the winter season. I am working on my tan and surfing on the web with my free connectivity. ALOHA

Hey guys, here are some Hong Kong street art shots from my trip last month. The work there has a great sense of humor and is chock full of odd lil creatures. These were shot in the Lan Kwai Fong district on Hong Kong island which was kind of a cross between San Francisco and the NYC’s Lower East Side.

well shit. banksy says it's easier to get forgiveness than permission. but in brooklyn it's really not very hard to get permission either. saves going in and out of the clink. that's how i've been doing it.

Well lets chat about street art-How many of you feel its a pretty dangerous occupation to have.? I'm getting to old to be in and out of the clink but every time i get back out on the street I'm ready to create again.
