Entropy as Energy! (Chaos Cookies!) by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

Just another day! My goodness. We will decide later if this day was wasted or used to make us feel better! We'll see...


"Bear (27 Aug. 2022)" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


[Sharpie on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color.] "That doesn't look much like a bear," you say. "Neither do you!" I respond. As the "artist," if I call it a bear, it's a bear. If I call it a mosquito, it's a mosquito. (Unless I'm unreliable... Ut oh... Postmodern twist!) ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

I'm going to try something SIMPLE for this edition of #CHEAPTHRILLS for hungry collectors! I'm making 101 editions of this bear, and in a couple of days (when I get sick of him), I'll BURN the unclaimed editions. I'm just all ruthless like that. Enjoy!



From my Tweeterz page:
"Hey Happy Collectors! Never forget that you can visit an artist's page on Objkt.com and click the sort button to view their art from lowest price to highest! Personally, I have a TON of art for 2/3 of a #tezos (0.67) and under on secondary! Go see!!!"

"Bee in the Backyard" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

[Photograph of bee on some clover in our backyard taken with my phone.] Technically, I didn't make this bee (or the clover.) I guess that makes this "found art?" ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)



"Occult Experimentation (8-Bit Vers.)" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

occult experimentation (8-bit vers.).jpg

[Mechanical pencil, gel pen, and paint pen on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and moshing!] If you stare at this image for long enough, you will see the future! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)



"The Court of Public" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

the court of public.png

[Liner pen on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color.] It's all so confusing. POST-TRUTH POST-SUCKS. One of my greatest joys was having a good argument with folks who understood what they were talking about... Where have all those people gone??? Are they fading away??? If we cannot agree on a single point from which to START our discussion, then there is no discussion to be had. ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

P.S. - Yes. I'm one of those assholes who studied both semantics AND philosophy in college only to discover that these topics are no longer recognized by the masses as viable art forms... (Sad face.)



"High Kick" by RFY (HF) & FEH (TT)

[Felt pen on reclaimed cardboard (which was also a ripped up, previous drawing) with digital embellishments.] Felicity and I like to draw. (I think I like to draw more than she does, but she hasn't reach enlightenment, yet, either. If she DOES, she'll want to color more...) ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool) & Felicity Echo Hanson (Toddler Terror)



"Vascular Dementia" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

vascular dementia.gif

[Sharpie and liner pen on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color, moshed, and animated with a free app on my phone.] X-Ray vision goes wrong, and instead of seeing beneath the clothing, Spence saw all the way to the cardio-vascular system...which wasn't nearly as pervy... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


P.S. - "Creative commons is the WORD! (Not 'Grease.')"

"Negatron Particle" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

[Digital drawing created on my phone!] If you're sick of toxic positrontivity, meet my buddy, the Negatron Particle! Ironically, he's actually a pretty chill dude... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)



"Cornered" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


[Liner pen on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color.] This is an abstract piece. It has no specific meaning, but many non-specific meanings! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)



Watching a lot of Halloween videos with the little kid. (We're a bit late getting started this this year...) We like monsters!

Anyway... That's about it for this post! There is a long list of songs below, but I'm feeling too lazy to find video links for all of them... (Maybe next time...) Give them a listen, if you feel the urge!
