Well, at least there’s nothing creepy about this holiday.

For one more week, the paintings from my ongoing series Disappointed People Holding on to Guardrails will be available as 24”x36” (original painting size) prints for the price of $58.*
After that, prices will be going up due to costs, time, and energy.
*Why $58 and not $60?  Well, let me tell you! Because that two-dollar difference between $58 and $60 seeks to make the “Oh, well-that’s-only $50…” vs. the “Oh, but-that’s-almost $100…”  perceived overall price (to the average 1980’s consumer mind) seem less costly and more affordable, even if only sub-consciously (and, these days, barely, nakedly, and cynically so!) — So exactly in the same way the the oft-ridiculed but apparently still marginally effective “ONLY $9.99!” or “$39.99!” or “$99.99!” or “ONLY $9,999,999.99!” chants of TV infomercials, or your basic broccoli produce, or whatever product-pricing has worked on consumers’ unconscious brains for years!  But better! In that the only difference is I’m being somewhat (again, barely) less ridiculous and insulting to the consumers’ intelligence by dropping it by two whole dollars as opposed to one cent, so really, if you think about it, just more of a cynical asshole, but not as smart.**
**Although, to be fair, a cynical asshole who is saving you A WHOLE 2 DOLLARS!!!!! (before shipping).  
All of that said, the costs and time going into these prints have proven to be much more demanding than I initially expected, so the price of these depressing prints of paintings depicting a lonely New York City populated by quietly desperate people managing to continue being quietly desperate people for yet another day (!) will be increasing after one more week.
So get them while you still can if you feel like it!

colbert-fan asked: How would you feel if your album cover became a meme called "Sad Face Man"? lol, I was showing my friend Victory in Defeat on Spotify, and (right in the middle of Hand to Reach For), she said, "I bet we could make that album cover a meme that describes sadness. His face & even the bird look sad! When someone in a meme comic gets sad, their face could become that face." I doubt that could ever work as a meme (or catch on), but memes r supposed to be funny because of the almost-stupid simplicity..

Dear sir,

It would be hilarious to see if my face is meme worthy. If your looking for my blessing, you have it.
