Conservatives Can’t be Creative

In the words of my friend and partner at Liberatchik, Christopher Cook, “Human liberty and natural rights are an unstoppable force: as long as there are humans, we will yearn for liberty. A movement [to express this yearning] is building now, and art will be a part of it. The statists can delay it, but they cannot stop it.

Getting Ready for CPAC 2013

The list of speakers and bloggers is more promising this year than it has been in the past, but I continue to be disappointed by their lack of interest in cultural matters. I will reserve judgment on that point for now and let you know what I think from the event….

Effigy #1984

…The level of hatred and overwhelming anger exhibited by these people reminded me of the Two Minutes Hate in George Orwell’s novel 1984, so I set to work making a visual representation of the phenomenon. I have personally had conversations with people who broke down and screamed “Bush is a fascist” when the discussion didn’t go their way….
