Art Show Opening

I wanna thank everyone who came to check out the show, and extra thanks to those who stayed a while, and super duper thanks to those of you who bought pieces!

Less thanks are due to the woman who called me a misogynist and came up with the sickest possible interpretations of my work. As an example she claimed in all seriousness and without a sense of humour that supposedly the ghost from the cover of Space Jet #5 is shaped like a phallus and he's going to rape the woman.

My very large window piece. It was the first to sell!
The show still had people hanging out as late as 2am. A good night.

The show was great, Mike! Congratulations again.

Too bad about that silly woman. Your work is probably the most innocent in the whole Jem gallery. I don't know what her problem was.

That kind of thing scares the bejeezus out of me. I have no idea how I'd react.

Cool!

But I think it is "plaid shirt with paisley tie:)"Hope it went well- it sounds like it did.

uggh- art school all over.
Sounds like she has issues.

Yeah it's phallic; and positioned behind the woman; and yes she is caught off-guard/ surprised

but it's only part of a story-
I can't tell what is going to happen next. For me- my mind goes to Scooby Doo; for others rape, America or The Indianapolis Colts:)

Nice work in the show Mick.
I can't believe some woman called you a misogynist.
You should have just replied, "That's right! I do free Mi-sauges as well. Wanna back rub, baby."
