mikolaj smolinski - birthday tort

My Mom used to make these
killer torts. Everybody should
have a tort on occasion as it is
a different kind of ceremony than
the cake.

A shield of sorts.

Mikolaj Smolinski - rescuer

Marijke Nap and I had this magazine of rescue gear we used
to laugh at in the studio. The character in this image is based
from one of the photos in the mag + he reminded me of my
cousin when he was in his twenties fronting a stash + mullet +
always listening to Rush all the time.

A bit of a Bueys reference again too. It fit the bill?

Mikolaj Smolinski - woodsist

Based on the woodsmen/hunters that rescue little red.
Its a play on "woodmen", to me. Sabina's images set the
scene. Also the name of one of my favored record labels
of recent.

Mikolaj Smolinski - Prince Georgian Dinner Jacket

From a series of works regarding
"ceremonial robes" as worn by different
practicing artists, bestowing upon them -
supernatural powers.

The title was coined by Keith Morrison.

good show.
