    Clever use of the Surprise emoticon. Oh wait, isn't that the Blowjob emoticon? Art imitates life, did you notice the look on your face in the photo?

    Cool stuff, you have some talent there my friend.

    I do not have any photographs of my works on hand at the moment for most of them are in storage, but I did managed to dig up some of my earlier concept sketches and limestone pieces.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read:

    So Scoob, what were you thinking about when you snapped those pics?

    Sharing?

    Those weren't pre-taken photographs, I just took a couple of snapshots with my phone camera from one of my journals I had laying around, and it had a couple of badly taken and old photographs pasted in them (as you've probably guesses from the molds on one of them). The sketches were conceptual drafts of pieces I did not produce into real pieces of works.

    Let me rephrase..... what were you thinking when you posted those images here?

    If you meant my intentions; sharing. With the hopes that other members will do so.

    They do?

    Well, there have been instances when pattern recognition results in pareidolic phenomena in audiences, or it could have been a direct result of badly taken photographs back in the day when the limestone pieces were shot. Oddly enough, this would be the first phallic recognition from a male audience. I've had females audiences who felt some of my works being highly suggestive of lady parts.

    #2 does look rather phallic.

    Nothing pareidolic about that, a blind man could see it. Photos 3 to 5 however, appear to be photos 1 & 2's eventual destination.

    Ok...what has two thumbs, and is now officially a professional artist......THIS GUY! My electrical outlet painting above sold, and I did another one of just one big outlet, and it sold to the same lady. Apparently she was really into electricity. They sold for $165 and $95. It was right on time...since I won't get my first paycheck from my new job for 2 to 3 weeks.

    Hurray for art!!!

    Lady parts was the first thing that popped into my mind when I looked at that last image. Your sculptures and sketches are sweet though!

    The "like" function for this website is all outta whack and I want to give props, so here goes: Just wanted to say I'm happy for you Mac. Not sure if you have, given that I don't know you very well, but you totally should have looked into art as a supplement or even a career a long time ago (if you hadn't) because you have some serious talent. And I know what I'm talking about because I went to an art museum once... So I am qualified or whatever.

    Congratulations.

    A little friendly advise on the days ahead if you are pursuing this line of profession on a long term basis. Do not allow yourself fall into a self-induced philosophical debate of high vs low art when producing new works. The surest way of hindering the creation process is when we are overly concerned about identifying the differences between craft vs art, and other similar concerns; such as the Dada movement during the early nineteenth century. The nature of which still applies to this day in the study of aesthetics if one has not been through that process. It took three years or so to resolve mine after which I've found other interests to purse.

    Good luck.

    Thank you for the compliment.

    They are leftovers from a series that are now in a private collection sold roughly fifteen years ago. I've donated the rest and kept a few choice pieces for sentimental reasons.

    I made this because I wanted something different to ride. The frame, gas tank, rear suspension, front end and seat were all designed and made by me.

    From time to time I do a little bit of restoration work. It hardly qualifies as art though.
    I like the electrical outlets, they remind me a bit of Warhol's posters.
