This week I went back to a rough digital sketch for one of the “Monster Faces” that I did in collaboration with my brother, Frank, back when I was participating in ArtMares. I think it dates back to 2008. It was basically a passport-type portrait of a Godzilla-type monster. I went back to that very rough sketch, and from that did a very small acrylic painting, trying a few different thinner techniques. Because it wasn’t dry enough to put in the scanner, I had to photograph it, and the resulting shadows on some of the colors make the digital version look more interesting than the real-world version.
Because of my MG limitations, I’m working smaller, and because it’s October, I’m doing spooky stuff, so that’s why you’re seeing this. I don’t consider it one of my favorites, to be honest.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you new episodes of Psychedelic Shack, and then at 3 PM a new edition of Herman Linte’s weekly showcase of the Progressive Rock of the past half-century, Prognosis. You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player elsewhere on this page. I don’t have a playlist for either of today’s new shows from our friends at Haversham. I probaby could have gotten playlists if I didn’t wait until after they were all out of the office to email them.
On Psychedelic Shack, Nigel Pye offers up an hour-long mixtape of Psychedelic Music that kicks off what Nigel tells me is “a cover of a cover of a classic tune.”
Psychedelic Shack can be heard every Monday at 2 PM, with replays Tuesday at 9 AM, Wednesday at 10 PM, Friday at 1 PM, and Saturday at 9 AM. Classic episodes can be heard Sunday at 9 AM as part of our Sunday Haversham Recording Institute collection.
On Prognosis, Herman Linte presents a two-hour live concert by Frank Zappa, recorded in the mid-1970s.
You can hear Prognosis on The AIR Monday at 3 PM, with replays Tuesday at 7 AM, Wednesday at 8 PM, Thursday at Noon, and Saturday at 10 AM. You can hear two classic episodes of the show Sunday at 2 PM.
Tonight at 8 PM you can hear an hour of classic stand-up from Bob Newhart on The Comedy Vault. Wednesday evening at 10 PM, we’ll have another new episode of The Comedy Vault.
Then, at 9 PM we bring you an overnight marathon of Nigel Pye’s Psychedelic Music showcase, Psychedelic Shack.
