You’re Not Gonna Believe Who This Guy’s Dad Is…

Aaaaaaaanyway…

I was very serious about creating this image. I wanted to present J.C. with reverence and respect, with a personal truth but also with something very new. The same son of God, depicted in the same stylized and over-painted way we have seen him for generations yet with a new ethnicity. Hispanic is my update. I thought maybe it could sell in South America. My honest and uncensored depiction of Jesus would not be complete without a divine sensuality that heats a forbidden glowing layer of desire…like a glossy layer of clear love smeared over his lips, his watery eyes, over his whole beautiful face. The content of this art comes with your pondering stare – making it blurry in your mind as you gaze into it and beyond it’s few details. This is introspection, the individual’s unique third-eye point of view . I hoped to put all that on top of the half-man’s mortal masculinity that made this famous prophet, at least in this artist’s mind, quite hot.

A Three Piece Summer Salad Dressed Simply

…walks into a salad bar. Just Kidding.

It’s summer. Ideas are harder to find when you’re overheated and hungry.

Here’s one for you. In the words of Marlene Menard, the mid-eighties East Village chanteuse and star of Tom Rubnitz‘s video short masterpiece, Chicken Elaine, “et voila, it’s easy and fancy.”

Fennel, Blood Orange and Hazlenut Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 large fennel bulb, thoroughly washed
  • 2 blood oranges, sliced
  • 1/2 cup whole raw hazelnuts
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1–2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Cut fennel bulb in half and slice it super thin.

Supreme the oranges. (Supremeing an orange) If you are not concerned about the “ooh la la” you can peel them and slice then into thin discs. If you supremed them you can, take a full ballet style bow then cut them into bite sized pieces.

Toast the hazlenuts. Don’t roast ’em. Don’t burn ’em. Just toast ’em then chop ’em.

Dress everything with olive oil and lemon juice an sea salt.

Serve this alone or on top of some mildly flavored lettuce like one from the Butterhead family for example. Butterhead…relax!, it’s vegan.

Finito.

Hiding From the Heatwave

Heatwave. Feels like one “o”four and God bless this skater on Canal Street who chose to wear his/her – sorry – “their” long sleeve turtleneck with striped gauntlets and black jeans with combat boots. Dedication. They drank a cup of water and rode away into the sizzling sleaze of a busy Canal Street while I sat sweating and sucking down a large iced tea – (NO DONUT.)
