The good folks at John Wiley & Sons, an esteemed Australian publisher, have seen fit to include an illustration from my GLAM WARP book in RETROSPECTIVE, their latest 11th grade History textbook! The art is used to illustrate a chapter on nuclear testing in the Pacific islands-- It even includes a sidebar question in which students can expound on the "message" of the artist-- What a wacky world!

I'm delighted to be showing over a dozen new paintings on stretched canvas at Seattle's TIGERTAIL bar and Pan-Asian eatery-- The show will be called EMBLEMA PSYCHOPATHIA and will have a 2 month run from March 4 through May 4-- TIGERTAIL was founded in late 2007 by my pals Carl Carlson, who ran Seattle lowbrow gallery VOX POPULI, and Tim Hayes, ex-proprietor of FALLOUT RECORDS-- Their new bar is very swank yet comfy and located at 704 NW 65th Street, in Seattle's comfy Ballard neighborhood--
