Mander's Movie Madness!



Ok, so in between various creative outbursts, I managed to create a few stop animation films. It was fun. It was easy. Therefore, I will be doing it often. Make yourself my hero and visit the creative process you can't get enough of. I love you.

One Person in Two Bodies


I finished this 'badboy' last night! "One person in two bodies" was a phrase my friend and I often sang aloud when we were together! For years that was our mutual motto. Turns out we are actually two very different people, in two very different bodies. Thankfully. Otherwise, we are just plain crazy! And anyone who knows me well, knows that my estimated arrival in Crazy is post menopause. So gimme like 25 years! This painting is ode to old ways of being/co-existing, and to the relevance we obtain when we own our true independent selves! We are two people in two bodies!

Tastes like...



...art!

If you are desirous, and you always are, go eat my website. It seems to resemble a Skittle and Starburst waffle submerged in maple syrup, but it tastes more like sunflower seeds and lemonade.  You know you're all over this

Knotty Pine


Pine wood is brilliant. But for one reason only, finding Bears.
I was elated when I discovered this miniature Black Bear hidden within countless, shapeless pine knots. I celebrated this rare find well into the night, drinking beer after beer, progressing effortlessly into full fledged belligerence! Paying mad respect to the mighty beast, the Black Bear.

High Fashion


Sixth grade had it goin' on! And a few days ago, I located the proof that which supports this statement. This recently recovered photograph is festering with obvious reasons why one should invest in purple tights. Tights are indeed vicious harlots which OWN my soul and good sense!  I looked into this photo, FELT the energy, and have concluded that I am now a well-known fashion designer. I call this look from Manders Adolescent Collection, " Pending Insanity".

Im Not Listening!


I was on my way to the grocery store today, and I managed to snap out of oblivion just in time to spot a question mark stuck to the sidewalk. I was like, "Woaaaaah, Dude! What's it all mean, Man?!".  At the time it didn't mean jack! I tried to entertain the notion that it could be seen as a sign from the heavens. But as I stood, gazing questionably down at a crummy-wet sticker, nothing immediately resonated. I had no euphony. I was dead inside! Noooooooo, its wasn't all severe like that, dudes. But I wasn't impressed with the timing of this...elusive question. 

I went on with my day, buying artichokes, sampling "free" goodies at Berkeley Bowl, and eventually made my way back home. There I proceeded to stuff my face with snacks and continued perfecting the fine art of procrastination. Ahhhh, nothing like inaction to remind me that I SUCK! Comeon', I'm rad. I know it. 

It was a few hours later that I gave a crap about that question mark. I love him. And that is obnoxious. The question is, "What am I gonna do about it?". The answer is, "I duuuuuunno! Nothing?". That pesky little question mark stuck to the sidewalk  is Me, looking up at Me, waiting for an answer that may never come. Fuuuuuck that. Oh well, at least I have artichokes to munch on in the meantime
