Inspired by the events from the US Presidential Election, I started on a comic strip.

Early in his campaigne, Donald Trump struck back at the New York Times over his hair.

They were obsolete.

I had to do something with my $20.00 work shirts.  They are high-quality oxford blouses that gave the illusion of one being in charge (at least the customers assumed I was in charge even though I was a part-time framer).

First I cut out the company’s logos and tag lines.

Then with leftover scraps of fabric and some fabric paint, I patched up the holes and changed the color of the shirts I did not care so much about.

I also ripped off the sleeves, for they didn’t fit well anyway.

To change the color on this one, I applied Seta-Soliel paint onto it and pinned on a paper stencil.

Why I left may day job – a work in progress

It has been nearly a year since I left my day job.

After working for nearly 14 years as a “Certified Framer,” and a “Framing Manager” at Michaels Stores, Inc., I have become physically and mentally incapable of doing the work and unmaintain pleasant demeanor.  My body has become nearly broken with chronic pain, herniated discs, and consistent gastrointestinal issues.  My mind became numb with depression.

I knew it was time to leave when I had the urge to toss a screaming child out into the parking lot.

This was generally how I look and feel.
