The top drawing is a combination of these shapes I once noticed in a old friend's notebook during class and I appropriated it (I circled the design and started drawing it on the inside of my left wrist; in retrospect I think that might have really pissed him off, which makes me sad. I saw it really as something that reminded me of my friendship with him-and also of the Dao, which also reminded me of him, too.); also of this design I noticed on a drum kit in another friend's living room yesterday afternoon. I thought it was totally perfect, except for this stupid dot in the center of the design.
The lower collage/painting is from the front page of the LA Times and a Target supplement. After I made it, I realized it was an imagining of a postcard I once received with a poem referencing the Dao.
