We kick off this rocky primary election week with something that many a young person’s mind turns to at this time of year….wieners! Our art this week is “Burnt Weenies,” a digital painting of a close look at nascent hotdoggery a-roastin’ on whatever it is that they call those metal rotating thingies. You can almost imagine pressing your nose against the glass before you realize that it’s scalding hot and you probably shouldn’t have done that. This edition of Monday Morning Art is dedicated to the late Frank Zappa, who once titled an album “Burnt Weenie Sandwich.” Twenty years and a couple of months ago I had the privilege of seeing Mr. Zappa perform in Pittsburgh. Later this month, Zappa’s former sideman, Ike Willis, will bring his Zappa Tribute to The Empty Glass. They should serve wieners that night, in honor of the event.
As is the norm, clickedy-click the image for a larger version. The internet gods willing, you can cruise over to the Monday Morning Art Cafepress store and purchase this image on a variety of garments and fine trinketry. Also, all of the artwork for Emily will be available from the PopCult Cafepress store at least through the end of summer. All proceeds will go to Emily. I’m also working on hooking up with a local gallery to sell prints of this work, again with all the proceeds going to my friend Emily and her family.
