Hola Mercado, espero que te hayas mejorado. Toma bastante água, vitamina C y jugo de naranja, água de coco también ayuda. Me alegro que te haya gustado "the m.o.f.&.t.b.d.l".

Hola Mercado. Gracias por el contacto, pero no entendi tu recado: por que no dejo preguntas? por que no me olvido?..... te agradeceria que fueras mas explícito.

Thank you for your comment, short and right to the point.  Your paintings

inspire me to use more bold color, broad strokes and get moving along in 

the process.  Stagnation be gone!

Dos Pichones is water color & blue color-pencil on paper; done by Colombian Master Santiago Martinez Delgado

It was an illustration for the vida magazine. It is rare to find as most of his works are murals and the rest are in museums. I am looking for treasures made by him when he went to art school in Chicago in the late 20's early 1930's and from the time he lived at Taliesin with Frank Lloyd Wright. I have a Collection interested in his work.

How is The merchant mercado. Das Illuminati is a Lizard Conspiracy that YOU Perpetuate with Your PARANOIA, and since You Believe the Worst of Me, I will Help Substanciate Your greatest Fears. I AM "THE ILLUMINATED ONE!" I arrived on this Planet 60,000 years ago to complete The First Art Show Ever. The grunts and farts of the Neandrathal Audience led to a Group Orgy, that was impregnated with Artistic Genetic Modification, leading to The Birth of All Future Artists including You.

damn it, you make me want to actually post artwork here or a poem or two, the stuff I don't-wouldn't dare post anywhere else...

this is the last time I will be honest...

P.S. i am sure about your usage of words...nicely done

At 12:08pm on February 15, 2012, L. Warren said…

in all seriousness I will try not to lie ("try")...I don't want to post work that doesn't have a the right voice to post up here and I live in fear of posting things that might piss people off too much, no guts no glory-same old verbiage, but still I have clients that count on my civility and I sold my soul to making money with my art to sustain a living so for now I bite inches from my tongue and the lying becomes a game....I am assuming of course, you are calling me out on the fact that I promised two years ago that I would post artwork here and HAVEN'T yet....or are you not blind?

hey mercado, send some more of your crayon art on paper and i will wipe my ass with it, and then sell it, because my crap gives it value. I matted and framed a few images of yours, with reference to your unmitigated stance as a psychotic "Idiot Savant", with Homosexual tendencies, scribbling as fast as you can, Images of your HOMO-Land, and all of its many deranged personalities. I will send you another OIL-PAINTING, worth thousands of dollars so you can mutilate, and destroy as you did the other one.

Anatomical kaleidoscopy

Immagini tratte da uno studio di parti anatomiche, elaborate in maniera caleidoscopica. Risultato: non particolarmente esaltante...pur nella sua originalità.
