I do indeed mean to dump this blog and write only in my fab Tumblr, but searches keep leading this place.

The Marriage No. 9 and No. 16

The Marriage No. 9 and No. 16
This project is different from what I have made previously. In general I take something and spin it. The first element may be prescribed and second is not. 
But this is different because I take Carl and then I take Ana. And that’s it.
Recently my collages spun beauty and not without humor. Carl and Ana however are not really interested in either.

Long Goodbye

I am approaching the end of radio as I have known it. I wish I could just say good-bye, that it is done but I am getting some resistance.
My situation is not the same as when I commenced radio 12 years ago. There is not a lot of time and not enough space. But those things could be figured out. What I am really missing is patience. My day job (and I am grateful to have it) is absorbing all of that.

Also it has been brought to my attention in countless ways that I can be perceived as journalist first and artist second. That could be meant as a compliment but it doesn't work for me. And while journalism is something I chose, my life as an artist was not. As I stated before, I could not drink it out, smoke it out - it could not be kicked out or talked out - and plenty tried. There's no choice on that front, so I have to make it on others.

Urban Noize, Portland, Oregon, 1980

In 1980 Portland had a fanzine called Urban Noize. I was the art director.
Here you see the original collage and then how it was translated into the cover.

I would like to remind any readers that most of my postings are now on my Tumblr.

Richard Speer Review/ Yes, I covered Scars

Richard Speer says too many smart things for me to paraphrase; instead I provide the link and hope you read it all. But I do want to add to the comment about covering scars:

I have covered all kinds of scars. The most intense makeup/client I ever had was when a man brought his wife in for a makeup lesson... she had a huge sweeping port-wine stain on her face. He had never seen her without a ton of makeup. It's not like he was pro-makeup. He left us alone. She was crying as we took it off .... I kept saying "You know, we don't have to do this..." "No," she said," Let's keep at it." And then I showed her products and techniques she was unaware of. It was a healing and empowerment. She in fact became a repeat client, someone who had fun with her face instead of wiping it out.
