Digital Art: King’s Lead Hat

Dark alley (dark alley) black star
Four turkeys in a big black car
The road is shiny (bright shine) the wheels slide
Four turkeys for a dangerous ride
The lacquer crackles (black tar) the engines roar
A ship was turning broadside to the shore
Splish splash I was raking in the cash
The biology of purpose keeps my nose above the surface (OOH)

Brian Eno 1977

Hullaba Lulu: One Million Years B-Lulu

Teagan Geneviene and I collaborated on a ‘Lulu’ story for Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo.

My part was making illustrations and a video; for that, I took a break from social media.

Thanks to Sue for being the inspiration for this collaboration with Teagan.

I’m honored to share a guest spot on Sue’s blog.

I learn when I take on a project like this, and it’s fun to illustrate a character as surreal as ‘Lulu’.

It took three shoots to figure out how to stage Tom Driberg’s capture

I want the graphics to reflect the spirit of Teagan’s story.

I hope I’ve done that with this video.

Each One Teach One: The KGB Spies Who Invented Fake News

Please watch this recent video from the New York Times.

If you find it informative please share it.

Each one teach one.

 

The saying “Each one teach one” is an African proverb that originated in America during slavery times. Slaves were seen as chattel and therefore denied an education so when one slave learned to read or write, it became his duty to teach someone else.

 

Knowledge is power
