~TOXIC SLUDGE vs BRIAN CHIPPENDALE . . ?
CHIPPENDALE . . NAILS IT !!
TOXIC SLUDGE YELLOW – TAKES OVER FROM – RADIATION SICKNESS GREEN – AS THE ‘GO-TO’ COLOR OF THE MONTH !!!!
2 things made me speechless, this past mid-summer 2016.
the first was that awful, huge as in epic unbelievable, profoundly disturbing toxic gold mine EPA ‘spill’ er, . . ‘accident’.
and yeah, they should let me re-name, and up-date a couple of those sturdy crayon hues, in the CRAYOLA MULTI- PACK.
yep, time . . to re-boot CRAYOLA, unless urban Outfitters hasn’t already done it.
kids, our future leaders !! need to be able to express their – disgust !!
yep !! color me – disgusted !!
“dissolved iron is what turned the waste plume an alarming orange-yellow, a color familiar to old-time miners who called it “yellow boy.”

are we surprised ? not.
the NAVAJO NATION intends to sue the federal gov’t. good luck on that. let me know . . how it goes.
I”m definite not gonna hold my breath on that case – snaking its years long journey through court.
the jurors will probably al be be mutated, or half-robot by then, anyways.
no wonder I bury my head in comic books.
just as ‘green’ no longer stands for bio-heath, organic sprouts, or even, green light … means GO.
YELLOW no longer stands for the sun sun sunny side of the street.
it’s PUTRID YELLOW – all the way, now – baby.
I was waiting for an ‘art’ image to pop up – that spoke to the issue, when this ‘old’ piece by BRIAN CHIPPENDALE – hit the spot.
he wrote under the image: “I drew this thing years ago and it’s been hanging from a clothes-pin in my studio ever since, still cracks me up . . .”
the sad truth, it’s message is . . TIMELESS.
CHIPPENDALE, one of my most fave disaster, visionary collage / comic book artists, ever.
Cinders, has been a great, and early platform for his art, prints & collage ‘paintings’ & indie publications . . of which, yes I have several.
so, are we gonna have to start calling him . . ole ‘yellow boy’ Chippendale ? for sure !!
and plus, he takes great PIX, as in Instagram photos – bye the way.
