Wendie Wytch Says...


... Have a Gloomy Halloween, one shrouded with despair, dustings of melancholy and dollops morbidity!


May your most cherished material possession break - beyond repair!


See ya at midnight in the blackest corner of the forest!

Vote Selfishly!


Put yourself first! Vote Green Party!


Vote in favor of clean air and water, vote in favor of your health care, vote in favor of marrying anyone of your choice, vote against sending your kids to war, vote against your taxes being wasted on the endless war machine, vote against big money and big, mean multi-national corporations.


(BTW, here in New York State, the Dem and the GOP candidates for governor are adamantly pro-hydro-fracking, neither are concerned about your welfare. So, fug 'em! Hard and runnin'!)


No, Howie Hawkins and company won't win, but a strong Green showing cannot hurt, can only help. It'd be terrific if the Green Party became a force to contend with in NYS and the USA, just like in some European countries. But in order for that to happen we have to vote selfishly, as if our very lives depended on it.

Rethinking Schools



Rethinking Schools, a progressive education magazine art directed by Patrick J.B. Flynn, has been a steady client these past several years.

Pat's famous for giving his illustrators free reign, and it's always a pleasure to be given material of substance to work with.

Here is a recent job for Rethinking Schools about a young teacher being dropped in to his new role as an inner city educator..

Today's Wall Street Journal...


This is an illustration I did for today's WSJ, the topic being the recharging of electric cars. (Overnight has lower rates.)

A Negative Guy...


This year I've been working for Jeffrey Weinberg's Water Row Press. They're the tiny publisher of big names: Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Charles Plymell, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Charles Burns, Gary Panter, Mark Beyer, R. Crumb, Charles Bukowski, Allen Ginsberg, et al.

Among other things, I've done a few differently colored versions of this little beatnik for them. He pops up here and there: a logo, on a mug, in a promotional piece, on a T-shirt.
