I AM A CREATOR OF THINGS AND A CAUSER OF TROBLE.
Sometimes, those two things collide visually in a format you can download, use, share, or simply stare at for extended periods of time and wonder where it all went wrong.
Something original every month.
Welcome back one and all.
Every month, I like to give something away. Typically, it will be an item that has been out of circulation for a while, and more often than not, it is an item that was created, never used and archived. Sometimes I just like to create something unique for all of you, simply for the joy of it.
This month's freebie is something a very personal: a family and self-portrait, one I wished could have happened differently. Ben Brown Sr., and I never, and I mean never, got along. Part of this was due to his being an abusive drug addict/alcoholic, a lazy, wife and children beating son-of-a-bitch. He was also an amazing and truly gifted artist. He disowned me in 1988 for being gay and HIV+, and sadly, he died on 22 October 2002, three weeks after his 60th birthday, of HIV and cancer.
When I reconnected with my family in 2011, I was told this news. No, this isn't justice, revenge or anything else as ugly as that. This was the only opportunity he and I ever had to listen to one of our mutual favorite artists and have a drink in peace. I have the box his ashes are contained in now, and am saving it to fulfill his wishes at a later date.

Love to you all.
