print of the month: year of the thing

this month i made something half-way useful: a calendar. a zodiac calendar. 2 color silkscreen on yellow paper. 15.5 inches wide and 23 inches tall. suitable for framing, thumbtacking, or rolling up and hiding in your closet for 20 years until your child finds it and hangs it in their dorm room with black lights shining upon it, finally releasing years of hidden mojo. Edition of 50, signed and numbered. $25 shipping included, paypal: nb_russell (at) if you order today i can ship tomorrow for a new year's delivery. i am better at shipping quicker now, having worked out some kinks from last month.

thanks again to all the subscribers and patrons. i appreciate each and every one of you and also love you.

wanna be guaranteed to take part in next month's print? send me your shirt size.
thanks again,
your buddy

rad dude association

i was in home economics class in 7th grade with my friend joe. we took a written test about food and joe knew he would fail. so he filled in funny answers to questions. such as:

q: how long should one cook fish?
a: until it's done

q: what does RDA stand for?
a: rad dude association

i have nothing knew to post as i have several buns in the oven. but if there was rad dude association, these guys would be on the board of supervisors. their art was their life and their life was art. top to bottom: antonio frasconi, ray johnson (photo by bill wilson), and harry partch.
