Wearin' O' the Green

I know by now, everyone who is celebrating St. Patrick's day is starting to slump into a Guinness and green beer pile of celebration, so this drawing may seem a tad late. 

But that's because I've been pretty darned sick the last couple of days (as in on again off again fevery chills), so, yeah...  I actually drew this up whilst bed resting and doodling along in my sketchbook.  When I was feeling better, I scanned it and digitally colored it.  And I like it! 

I think it's the first time I've ever posted something that style wise looks more like what most of my sketchbooks look like. Meaning, it's pencil, and very liney and simple.

Although my sketchbooks are hardly ever colored, and they generally contain far more, um... 'bizarre' drawings than this sweet little clover laden lady here. Far more bizarre, or far more cutesy, depending on my mood. 

I hope everyone had a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm glad I got to feel better enough to slouch out of bed to make a post.  Yay! Let's hope I'm all better in time for the Craftster SXSW day show on Friday, and the family wedding out of town Saturday (and the other one the Saturday after this one... everyone's gettin' hitched!).

This is a call to everyone to please step outside the right vs. left paradigm. While there are important issues worth debating within this paradigm, all of them will be moot if we do not focus on a much greater issue outside this paradigm. Thomas Jefferson warned of wealth concentrating to such an extent that it threatened the state. Nowadays the media has taught us all very well to ridicule anyone who talks of central banks usurping the power of government. Well now I suppose the media will have to laugh at themselves, as many outlets from Newsweek to the Financial Times of London are openly discussing the creation of a "bank of the world" that will control economic policies of every nation. I invite you to watch this video, which details how this is currently taking place. While it focuses on our current officials' cooperation with these plans, it steps out of the typical political paradigm by highlighting the cooperation of both parties. Please do not look to politicians to protect us. Only we can protect us. And our first step must be to reach out to police and military. Without their cooperation, the global elite won't have the muscle to exercise their will of oppression. Please share this oath-keepers blog with them.
