Big Scary Canvas – Part II

I worked on my “Big Scary Canvas” over the past week, and I’m posting my progress, which I will do each week until the canvas has been conquered. In each post, I’ll talk a bit about the creative process – my creative process. Keep in mind: I DID NOT GO TO ART SCHOOL. My background [...]

Big Scary Canvas

I’m taking on an ambitious new art project. It’s ambitious for me because it involves filling a canvas that’s three feet wide and four feet tall. I’m accustomed to drawing cartoons on very small pieces of paper, which these days measure six inches by seven.

Anna, however, [...]

Puerto Rican Day Parade with Scary Corrections Vehicle Fleet

The photos posted below are from my little camera, and the tart comments that accompany each [...]

Skull Shoes- Photo by Greg Strid


I saw these stylish, yet ghoulish shoes sitting on the curb just north of Jersey Avenue on Columbus in Jersey City the other night. It looks as if the owner did not discard them, instead it seems as if she was plucked right out of them. (Maybe Satan called her back home for a family [...]
