1994 Mead Animal Art

In 1994, Mead Corp. released a series of folders with some amazing animal art on them.
I have had them in a file cabinet since then and decided to show off the amazing artwork.


Deep Thoughts

I found this the other day.
It has some profound insight...Thought I'd share.

After a While

After a while

You learn the subtle differences between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn

That love doesn’t mean leaning, and company doesn’t mean security.

And you begin

To learn that kisses are not contracts, and presents are not promises.

And you begin

To accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open, with the grace of an

adult, not the grief of a child.

And you learn

To build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans.

After a while

You learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So plant your own garden

And decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn

That you really can endure . . .

That you really are strong . . .

And you really do have worth.

Not much to say...I guess I have been in a creative slump lately.
I am too preoccupied with the economy, crazy politicians, corrupt, everything is wearing on me.... and its not just rupublican conservatism that is feeling attacked...EVERYONE in America should be fuming at what is going on with the banks, bailouts, PORK barrel spending, tax increases...etc etc. I swear I'm not in America anymore.

But I am 100% American true blue and through. Even if our govt. is turning into a bunch of socialistic fascist commies. Makes me wanna scream....(see image....not my artwork...but is a good representation of pain)

Anyway, I am working on a new art piece to show my frustration with politics in America that I will post soon.
