Is the Art Market a Scam?
In 2005, a Salvator Mundi believed a replica was auctioned off from the property of Baton Rouge industrialist Basil Clovis Hendry Sr. at the St. Charles Gallery auction house in New Orleans. It had been highly overpainted to the degree of looking like a replica, and was characterised as “a wreck, dark and depressing” before restoration. The picture was purchased for $1,175 by a group of art dealers. The team thought there was a chance that this low-quality piece may be Leonardo’s long-lost original.
A Day in the Life
I had gotten up from where I sat and walked to the small kitchen to pour myself a cup of coffee. The craft fair had a start time of 10:00am and the clock in the hall told me it was only 9:30. Yes, I had time for another cup of coffee.

The beauty in graffiti's artform
Years ago graffiti was viewed as an illegal activity and condemned as malicious destruction of property. It was seen as mere vandalism by the wayward wanton youth who was a waster of time and was also a scourge on society. We never stopped to think that it was the youth trying to express themselves in the only way that they had available to them. That they found and saw beauty in the freeform of expression giving their voices an outlet and substantive value. Beauty is everywhere. One just has to look hard enough.
I'm a Bubblehead
You see them everywhere now. Stickers on cars, laptops, water bottles, and everywhere in between. You see people with awesome, yet random fandom t-shirts. You see what looks to be merch from your favorite show, but can’t find it on any official website. You see great retro art that imitates the styles of the 70s and 80s. And always wonder, why can I get that?
A New Voice
Sometimes a voice wants to find itself without looking in the mirror. I was like that once. I felt like my voice had been stolen from me– a few times, in fact– because I refused to look at it in the mirror or acknowledge its semi-tragic existence.

Peering through the handprint-plastered windows, I tried to adopt the voices I saw around me because I refused to look at how broken mine was.
