Evolution , Devolution or Stagnation


Evolution , Devolution or Stagnation

Your guess as good as mine .
Has B . Obama done anything for Equality in the Racial front ?
Has he done any good work for natives and blacks in USA and abroad ?
Has his presidency managed to turn 
The Tide , towards a more inclusive society in USA and abroad 
Has he left anything for the masses to account for a Democratic gov 
Well , Yes u might say 
The health policy , the famous "Obama care " , but again is a drop in the ocean and an underhanded gift to the private  corporate health industry .
If a politician is to be measured by something , 
This should be his actions and their results in Real politix Whome and what ideas did they Gabor 
Who gains , who loses  as a result of implementing policy .
Who gained and who lost from Obama's presidency .-

Newtown Last Night

Most of a drawing I did last night - it's from an A2 drawing - a pain to scan properly on an A4 machine, so there's a few bits missing - this is from 3 scans and you need four at least for the whole page-  and I also didn't pay too much attention to exact alignment - fiddly small rotations are required and there's no paper edge to use as reference - 2 of the actual scans are below


Dendy SGK!

Girls out at night

Paige who sat down to get some of her woes out of her system with the drawing I did as she wrote me some poetry

Neville's court

Around the round table in the back yard at the Record Crate in Glebe (@crateglebe)  - it's round in the sense that a rectangle approximates an oval. 

That's the back of Neville's head, with Iris to his right and the others names I don't remember

I painted an outer space ceiling with quasars for Neville in the bar a while ago. He's got an idea to paint the 27 club as the last supper with a 2 headed Buckley Jesus, father and son, on a wall out the back, once some construction work is done. I'm not sure how many last suppers I want to put my name to - what about a Round Table group with Janis Joplin as King Arthur?
