So this week I’m trying out new pens.

I wanted to do an ersatz Cubist work to see if that much ink would curl the paper (it didn’t), and I chose to copy a pose from one of Alfred Cheny Johnston‘s infamous nude photos of girls from the Ziegfield Follies.

It’s Cubism, so you can’t really make out any of the good parts. This was basically an exercise in hand stamina and pen control, as I slowly get used to making real world art again.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon presents eight hours of Psychedeclic Shack starting at 7 AM. At 3 PM we are expecting to bring you a brand-new episode of Prognosis. Herman Linte promises us a new two-hour thrill ride of great progressive music, but as we write this we do not yet have the show in our hands, nor do we have a playlist. We do however, have faith than Herman will come through for us.

You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

Also, some time after noon today you can expect the first entry in The 2019 PopCult Gift Guide. We’ll be making a big deal out of that for most of the month.
