~JACKIE CASE . . don’t tread on MY CUPCAKE

Don’t tread on my cupcake, don’t even think about it.

time to lighten up, world.

though still thinking on . . “BIG EYES”.
the Margaret Keane story as told by Tim BURTON, posting – next !!
vive les femmes !!
turns out a woman was behind it all, from the get go. wouldn’t you just know it.
and don’t tell me those once re-viled and de-rided Big Eyes, don’t . . have legs !!
those Big Eyes just keep on going, esp even more so, in the Digital Computer Age.

for sure, when I see . . “everything is forgiven” ?? because here in NYC – apparently we don’t forget – the downed World Trade Towers, still showing up in our made-for-tourists – street art !!
a long decade . . after the fact.
and for sure, when I see international female world leaders photo-shopped out of national news coverage, because JE SUIS FEMME !!
I’m like, time . . to turn the record over, politics is so B-O-R-I-N-G.
red rover red rover, let the cutting edge ARTISTS . . come over !!

nothing like a little neo-hippie, sweet forest artistry to make a point – it’s a big world – out there, dudes. show some RESPECT for life. love, thought, and . . wisdom.
in a word: the future.

Australian artist JACKIE CASE, that means . . YOU !!
here’s to some well-drawn . . thinking.
not to mention: BIG EYES !!
welcome to NYC !!

JAN 14 – FEB 1, 2015

JACKIE CASE, ‘Don’t Even Think About It’, 2014. graphite on paper.
8-5/8 x 10-5/8 x 1-5/8 in.
talkin’ about: don’t tread on MY CUPCAKE – ALL YOU DAMN, DUMB DUDES of the so-called world !!
don’t even think about it.
talkin: strong fist in a very – pretty package !!

yes . . powerful messages, do come in small, sweet – packages.
ancient proverb. new age package.

and no, I would not classify this, if pushed – as ‘cartoon’ art per se, more along the lines of graphic illustration, which should not be considered . . demeaning at all. s-k-i-l-l-s.
it’s a big art world out there, and we don’t need to fight about ‘intangible’ boundaries, and definitions.
though, if you consider the work of ANDERS NILSEN, long considered a very acclaimed contemporary cartoonist, and graphic novelist, and if you factor in that the the works of JACKIE CASE pack a a strong, non-verbal ‘message’ . . then, guess what: yes, cartoon art – on the very uber, graphic, detailed realist range ?

and, of course: VIVE . . LES FEMMES !!
