This is what student artwork looks like

These are all from about the same period (1977-1981) when I was a student at the University of Washington School of Art...

A good look at what student artwork looks like... explorative... right?All over the place... reacting to assignments, to teachers, to fellow students...

Most of these were sold right after they were graded, as I used to sell my artwork at the Pike Place Market in Seattle... also between 1977-1981.

My youngest daughter on stage...

Talking about entertainment... a peeps of mine who lives in NYC, was sitting in a booth in a fancy Manhattan hangout, and he overheard a couple of dudes in the booth behind his discussing a talk show for Hillary Clinton.

He says that the suits were talking as though they were in the final stages of the deal, rather than as an "idea."

Interesting.... right???
