Started out as Acer saccharinum but quickly acquired features from additional, unrelated species.
Perhaps many of you are familiar with my spirograph-style geometry pieces, specifically this one from 2009 or these more recent doodles. I never did get around to having a big art attack with them until now, changing the features a little bit to create something that looks like it’s going to suck you in. Bright, vibrant colors will eventually fill the layers of the void but I like how it looks in monochrome, with just the background colored. Stayed turned for the complete work.

Found this extraordinary piece of humanity lying on someone’s front lawn this afternoon off of King Street in Stoney Creek. I certainly hope whoever was meant to receive this did.
In case you can’t read it (click for hi-res!) I have taken the liberty to translate it into a cleaner version of the same language:
“I call upon the spirit of the snake. I call upon the primal and healing forces you carry. I call on your intuition and heightened senses. Help me remain pressed close to the present, so I might experience this existence directly. Make me aware of stability and open to change. Sensual and fertile spirit, I ask of you for transformation. Help me shed that which I have outgrown. Clear my eyes so that I might slide free of the past and into a newly formed now. Coil your power, speed, and precision within me, so that I might harmonize with the invisible and swallow whole the wisdom I seek.“
For any of you who do not know what this is, you have your work cut out for you this evening. Spiritualized first album Lazer Guided Melodies is a highly recommended auditory experience that can be enjoyed through repeated listenings over regulated intervals.* Merry Christmas Robert Nagy. May I forever be haunted by not testing the font size properly before starting to paint on the letters.
Throughout my time at Fleming college, I have contributed several articles to an independent magazine distributed at the campus. All of the articles are written by students for students. Ontop of contributed botanically inquisitive articles and poetry, I decided to leave a lasting impression on the very last issue to be published by designing a new logo for the cover.
Below is a link to the article that I wrote in the magazine. Since this is art-time and not story-time, I will leave it at your discretion if you would enjoy reading it. It is entitled Outside the Hops and explores the hops plant and it’s relationship with people, examining it’s significance as a medicinal herb, it’s taxonomy and it’s importance within the history of brewing.

I haven’t written anything in a while, except this strange collection, in response to a rather unsual and remarkably significant evening.
“Excuse me, but you ruined my outfit. Please get a room, I was laughing so hard I spilled beer all over my pants.”
Disposable plastic cups
Dispose of each-other?
Although the evening took me over, despite the chemistry within my blood, don’t forget what I told you. Because for a night you took me over, and I mean everything that I said.
Inspired by the sudden flux of posts by all the lovely members of this fun-time-collective, I decided to start posting some art-icles that I have made throughout my academic career here in Lindsay (A location, not a person, that is just rude)
Attending an educational institution results in a remarkably strong increase in creative energy, at least for me, likely because I am pretty much over stimulated all the time and am forced hitherto produce art. Good thing for this good blog. Click for Hi-Res!
Questions for the viewers (answer in comments if desired)
1. What is happening to nature on the side of the art where digital man is holding his digital phone?
2. How is nature oriented? Is it positioned correctly, turned on it’s side or upside down?
3. Those stupid scrambly blackberry squares that now thoroughly saturate magazines are amazing for art. This is not a question, just a statement.
