Nouar-Hot_Diggity_Dog

Nouar’s edible world of art is round and colorful,  childlike, anthropomorphic and cannibalistic. Also, it makes me laugh.

Prolific artist Martin Wittfooth uses animals and human artifacts to create moody paintings which inspire a feeling of emptiness and desolation, worlds of decay where cranky, suspicious, or indifferent chimeras roam though 20th century ruins. Shown above: “Sandcastles in the Tide”.

In general I prefer not to bother readers of this blog with personal entries: the artwork I post is far more interesting than anything happening in my life, and twitter is a much better place to find out what people had for lunch. That said, I’ve been absent from the blog so often that an explanation (or at least some BS excuse) seems in order. Also, I’ve gotten some emails wondering if my obsession for dangerous fish finally took me down.

That is, however, not the case. I’m fine-ish. I’ve just been slaving away in my not-so-dank arbitrage cave, obsessing about numbers and algorithms until my head cries our for sweet liquid relief, coffee or beer or what can you bring me? I tend towards the lazy, simple life, so I build these extrodinarily complicated tools to save me from thinking and effort. Problem is, creating those tools isn’t so simple. The savings from my labor saving devices are supposed to pan out in the long run, but everyone knows what happens in the long run.

At any rate I feel ready to emerge from my coding-cave and step back in the world of color and image. Hopefully my devices are now are ready to be left to their own devices, we shall see.
