Preview the the book..... ENJOY ART FOREVER … hotography

My latest collaboration has long been overdue but has finally matured into
a working model for future photographers and artists alike.
A great friend and photographer/artist from the United Kingdom and
I have finally teamed up to produce our carbon footprint of art and photography.

The well known and respected Cheirodon and his work is well documented
in illustrating and complementing my own style of work that it was just a
matter of time before "minds across the ocean" finally
worked in harmony, proving such cooperation from different cultures and
lifestyles is more than possible.

Our first book is out on Blurb and is 130-pages packed with visionary works,
many of which have never been released before and forms the backbone of our
global assault on cooperation between likeminded people.
Our future carbon footprint is available today for tomorrow's artisans.

Contents include 130-pages, 70-images and around
16,000 text words that is fully indexed.

M A N I K  : The Armies Of The Night album is out.
One from the many reviews (
By Sarah Ferguson
The latest release from Josh Wink and King Britt's Ovum imprint launches with airs of street wisdom via samples from 1979 cult film The Warriors. Songs such as "My Hood ― Armies of the Night" and "We're From Coney" link to that cult flick about NYC's underground gang world, while Manik's mid-tempo deep house with breaks acts as a solid audio root structure for the inner city vibe sprouting throughout. The Queens, NY native has a strong ability to create emotion from sound, as demonstrated by "Don't Stop Don't Run," a tense track opening with a wavering siren, then moving into a motion of drum noises and vocals saying "not to stop, not to run and not to hide." Beautiful transitions exist amongst the songs. Hype vocals and jazz horns decorate steady urban beats on "Nightfall," while deep house synth rhythms spread warmth amongst the soulful vocals on "Lose My Mind," "Delorean Soho" and "Talk To You." Manik extends devotion to the streets via an urban sound sophistication that's equal parts deep and funky.

Quote from the Dalai Lama. Something to learn:
My other painting that was under construction, titled
Modes Of Perception had to be changed to title: Hot 'n Cold

Titled: The Rooster                  (40x30)
This image of Rooster symbolizes of freedom and the brave and proud fight against enemies,
and intruders of the 'territory' of place, time and mindset.
The strong red colors are the symbol of the constant revolution in the heart of the young
mixed with the hot color patches that only can be found in the joy of flawless tropical fun.
The abstract lineage of the feather valves is a reminder of a trumpetlike instrument
that will sound out loud and will call upon for the March of Happiness to celebrate
the victory of life in every circumstances.
The Rooster guards over love, family and freedom of the mind.

If you are looking for a TF session you must have recommendation
from a reputable photographer/artist besides fitting into one of my
projects that are under development.

I am not interested in the line up of boobs but rather and most definitely
in characters with brain.

I am obviously very modest and very beautiful and very brilliant and....
I..I.....I am a very excellent artist, one of the very best in the East. Really.
ohhh  whatever...
I am passionate and enthusiastic towards all kind of art.
I respect my peers and my fellow artists and all who are truly into creativity.
In good days, I even able to respect almost all the human beings.... (though always yield to animals...dogs..)

Good luck, and God blessssss..

If all goes well..... and we will meet at the first time
please dont feel overshadowed by my utter beauty,
.....please just dress casual for the event.

The very last painting of the BlueTulip series,
The Forbidden Dance to The Gods

I dont believe that creating art or expressing thoughts have to be tasteful.
The meaning of tasteful always different
in every society and in every era.
So don't be bothered with the pressure being "tasteful" by your present surroundings. Change it if you wish.
(Can you imagine having miniskirts in the Victorian era?
...or ..Is there a thong under the burka?... I don't think so.
If yes there is a thong, well, it would just prove how schyzophrenic the situation is...)
We all know equally what is good and what is bad to not hurt others existence. Live and let live.
It is called the manner of behavior of living side by side in a society.
But "taste" is sooo personal... be who you can be, with your own tastebuds.

" He is a man of great common sense and good taste,
        meaning thereby a man
        without originality or moral courage" 
      ( George Bernard Shaw )

RULE #1 :
Don't say you care, 'cause then I tend to take you seriously.
..and I know you don't give a damn.
Just lie to me that you love my art and therefore you love me,
and tell me how brilliant I am smile))
blah blah blah.... and then we are okay.
See...I make it easy for you.

Oh well, I am a generous man.  Seriously. smile

Sometimes I dont like Uncle Jamie...   ...but why do you hate Uncle Sam?

This painting is titled: MY LIFE . Its a visual autobiography.
It is a pen drawing/painting that took years to do.
This work includes elements and memories
from my life..., happenings, history, love affairs , family, etc. 
If you ever care, I am in the left lower corner of the painting, photographing YOU, look.
And right there nearby there is an old alley entrance, and as you can see,
I am having my first kiss...standing at the door....right there.
Ahhhh......that girl was climbing on me... very accurate illustration there.
You might find moments from the historics and nasty politics of Europe,
things and events and artists that had influence on me...
There you can find friends, grandparents, even important dates
like Oct 13.......or June 23...etc.
It's all meaningful and quite interesting..... at least it is for me.
So I figured, I will share it.

It's a triptych, i.e 3 paintings in meaningful correlation.
(The triptych form was popular as altar piece in Medieval times, painted on wooden panels.
This is an altarpiece of my life and of the special ones who are part of it.
This work is done on 3 huge canvasses placed side by side)

IMPORTANT (repeating again)

"It is good taste, and good taste alone,
that possesses the power to sterilize
and is always the first handicap
               to any creative functioning"

I finished my Blue Tulip Series that consist of 7 paintings.
This painting is:
The Purgatory Of Dancing Alone
(from the BlueTulip series)
The entire sum of existence is the magic
of being needed by just one other person.

(Quote from a Chinese Fortune Cookie)
Well, most of you dont care about all the details
of crap..of how artists deal with creation, dont feel bad.
Life is short, and then we die.

However to the one who does really care:
Your unconditional support makes
my art happen.
Your influence on Modern American Art
are noted in the chapters written about me.
You know I'm talking about you...
It's too bad you afraid to leave a tag.
No TF unless I offer because I imagine that you
would fit in my projects somehow...

This painting is titled: Waiting. (It's is about the state of
being alone and being exploited by a crushing society, but
still not giving up hope, waiting for a better future.)

Canadian Memories:

November 2008  Loose Canon Gallery Party
Hamilton,Ontario, Canada
Closing event of the HDL photography exhibition.
That beautiful one in the middle is me, surrounded by
Stephanie, Maria, Julie Christine, Anne, Elizabeth, Jennifer.
The HamiltonDreamLaunch (HDL for short)
held in the outskirts of Toronto
was about to bring some
new gems to the colorful cultural
events of the area.
A series of glamour sessions were
offered for interested Canadian models
while the show was on.
The event also intended to bring attention
to the hidden beauty of 'next door' women
and to encourage all the
people to achive their dreams.
The first HDL was an absolute success,
gathered many art lovers
and reached out to a wide range
of people, professionals and
amateurs as well. We all made many
many new friends and we built
a loving, caring circle for each other.
The HDL was covered by the media
and that fact put the event
and it's participants into
higher professional level.
Thank you to all the models
and all the people
for their helping hands.

Model and web designer Jennifer (MM # 537118 ), one from the HDL line
became the owner of Kushlife... a Canadian fashion and apparel company
in Toronto. She is a vibrant, perfect , amazing fashion person...born to rule the world.


Alane Deviare

One of the most upcoming model from HDL is Kristin Paxton (MM#596123)
She became quite successful participating in many venues today.
My very first model from MMayhem, who introduced me to ModelMayhem
named ThatModelJackie was an absolutely reliable model. Unfortunately she retired for good.

From the long line up of models I highly
recommend the most amazing person
from the South, Florida based Betty Jo
(MM# 544974). Her style and attitude
will bring only success to each photograph
taken in a session. She has an extraordinary
personality and a non stop working style .
Betty Jo
WARNING: Stay aways ModelMayhem#2798358 titled "Legalcutie"
(real name Patricia Bowers ) because she is not a model but flake AND a thief)
She stole $160 from me. If you need details please contact me.

I always look for new faces and for new characters. I am constantly
expanding my portfolio and always working on some projects.

...and NO, I do not sell, show or publish any of  the images I created
without the permission of the participants.

I don't like people who are ignorant and flake.
I don't like the "mass of people" because I did find that
whenever many people gathered, they could have been easily misguided
by one of their loud ones ( Nero, Hitler,  Stalin, Mao, Yoko......
okay, okay...I was joking about Yoko....
I respect the individual in every living creature.

Within my ability I always try to help my
models to achieve their goals and help them to climb to the top.

HOWEVER: If I don't know you and you
haven't taken the time to contact me
in some way don't send FRIEND REQUEST,
I will DELETE the request anyway...

....And please don't tag saying only
"Thank you"...or 
" Thank you for your comment, you are also beautiful.."
...send a postcard instead.
If you want to boost my ego with "meaningful" thoughts, like
"You are the best" ,
or " Your work is phenomenal"
or " I am soo much in love with you
that I want to marry you".....
These would be all welcome because
these are tag worthy thoughts...   lol...... wink)

...or just send a check or money order
to your favorite charity, me.
(and to all: if you leave comments on the pictures that I did for
models, it will show appreciation and acknowledgment for their
great work, they deserve it)
