STP's BLOG 11/20/12 "Chronic Art"
This morning we wound up talking about a talented artist in town named Cliff Maynard. Not only is an amazing tattoo artist at my buddy (and my tattoo artist) Tony Mitchell’s Tattoo shop in Port Orchard – Tony’s Tried & True Tattoo (www.tonystriedandtrue.com), but he is also a “chronic artist”. What does that mean…seriously, you have to check this out! Cliff makes art from burnt/used roach paper. He takes all of these little pieces of paper and glues them together to make some insanely awesome artwork. He has been featured in High Times magazine for what he does…check out this Jimi Hendrix piece that he made:
We were we wondering if he colors any of the paper, but after going to his site, www.chronic-art.com , I learned that he doesn’t…the coloring is from the variety of color tones that the paper makes from being smoked. Talk about recycling! Wow…here is a pic of the process to make these roach paper mosaics:
A recent survey was done on the big BURNING QUESTION of Thanksgiving:
What are you most thankful for this year? The top answer was family, and health came in second. God came in third, and friends came in fourth.
They also asked what Thanksgiving food is a must-have? Turkey was rated the most "must-have" food. Stuffing came in second, mashed potatoes were third, pie was fourth, and yams or sweet potatoes were fifth.
Based on this…finish this sentence: “I am thankful for _____.” Here are the texts we got:
