And So It Goes
More of "T. Scot Bottom & the Rockabilly Funhouse" live at Gabe's back in 1982. It's almost like we are there. This time it's a cool medley of "Boys"--The Beatles KA rocker and Carl Perkins "Blue Suede Shoes".
Shake it don't break it has to do with my new approach to the holidays. Get the bang, while avoiding the old painful pitfalls. Treasure meaningful traditions, but shit-can all the implosive, unpleasant or duty laden duds.
Today's artwork is another example of Scot's graphic experimentation. The line work for this piece was done with a red Sharpie marker. The truth is I'm a little sick about all the time Scot spent drawing with those Sharpie markers. It used to say right on the marker, "Not for letter writing." I guess they took that message off once they realized no one ever wrote letters any more.
Check out the subtlties of these washes. Check out this blue wash. Take about "blue suede'!
