being more greedy kills the skull and the bones 322

made from the bones of an entire deer, a dog skull found on the beach, a broken and fake chupacabra hand, beads, Chinese coins, a deer figurine, a porcelain angel figurine, a broken dinner plate and assorted bones from smaller animals.

this is 12" tall and aprox 13" in diameter.

started in roseburg oregon and completed on the beach, seaview washington.
I used the bones because it's what was available... it's what I found on my walks... like the drift wood I used in earlier pieces.





























being more greedy is a concept I'll be explaining in full for an upcoming book we're putting out... the book revolves around our year long road trip. ( http://www.ayearatthewheel.com ) let's just say, to be more greedy, some times you have to sacrifice and or go beyond doing the 'right' thing to make the pendulum swing YOUR way... and in the microwave, micro blog culture in which we live, sacrifice seems a dirty word, or at least something to avoid at all cost... give up the bigger goal for a bunch of smaller ones, ones you can get on sale at wal-mart... give up meaningful for meaning less.

My Photo
Name:

over 20 years of refusing the invites of the educated, celebrity and ruling classes, preferring instead the excitement of upper low class, poverty, petty crime and violence.

It's not the wine and cheese I hate, it's the boring, void of anything lives the rich and privileged scurry thru like the walking dead on meth - most of the rich think their cultured simply by consuming - culture can't be bought, it must be lived.

I was truly meant to live on the side of a hill, growing my own tomatoes, basil and garlic in peace with my soul mate and dog.
