Well, I’m up late as usual , researching old ideas that will inspire me, and put me on course for
new ground breaking ideas in furniture design . I ran across the piece above and was amazed !
Such a fine example of Mid-Century Post Industrial American Provincial Revivalist furniture .
I will probably purchase this piece and tweak an almost perfect design , just a little , for the design to be
truly uniquely mine …...after a fashion …...genre , so to speak …..etc. etc. I’m really excited
about it . I can hardly imagine on improving on the proportions that are so exquisite . I will probably
send some specs to Old Novice and have him run some algorithms on this beauty and send me some
improved drawings . But more on that later , as time allows . First sweet and
sour sauce of a visual nature , before I return to the furniture topic . The ‘sweet ’ being Digital Pop
Art ( pretty self explanatory) and the’ sour’ portion consisting of Modern Surrealist (surreal , i.e.
truth-beyond- reality ) mixture . This is just an exercise that is useful for any artist to keep his
‘edge’ ,as you will see .No ’ Luminosity ’ needed . So here is some sweet and sour. . It may go well
with your dumplings and then again..??

1. One cup Ishida sauce

2. One cup Deisel

3. Mix thoroughly and chill

When is enjoyment inappropriate ? I appreciated the ‘artoons’, and being a fan of the surreal, I can understand your limiting your view, but not mine please , as with moment, the diversion sparks the process ! We need an occasional break from the pens and wondrous new old plane discoveries at markets d’fleas. Cest’ non un lecture !

interesting view of society.

Nothing inappropriate in my opinion. just different way of expression.
