I am pretty much in love with him now. And those riot posters crack me up. Temporary Eye Sore is my fav though.

Caroline said...

Oh good stuff! Let's Riot...no Let's Vote! *snicker*

I've said it before... but why not repeat myself? I am amazed at the cool shit you find. You've got a talent.

Brooke said...

I have a friend who drinks and always yells, "Let's start a riot!" I think he needs that series.

I'd never heard of Scott King before, but I love all of this - just brilliant.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Good man, great art. 'Let's talk about Me' could be the common bloggers mantra, no? (Not you, sweetie, you only feature high-brow art!)

Fragrant Liar said...

Reminiscent of the '60s.

Phoenix said...

Love it. Very tongue-in-cheek, go-fuck-yourself politically kind of messages. I dig it, highly.

I hope you are doing better with everything and I'm still thinking of you. Let me know if you need anything, okay? I've lost several cats in my life and it doesn't get easier but I do start to really remember how precious the time I had with each one was.

I like how every piece is like a fifteen-second sound bite. Which is the concentration span of my generation.
