H’eye all! Tonight I’m your host for a most thrilling announcement event! Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even is using 2 of Resa’s One-Eye drawings to adorn his custom made guitars.
Resa did this One-Eye drawing with Tim and his guitars in mind. It is the first time anyone has seen it, except Tim, myself & Boogapony.
Here is a slideshow of 10 other One-Eyes Resa has done.
Yes, there is 1 ~ One-Eye missing from the slideshow, and here it is!
Tim personally picked this blue One-Eye from Resa’s collection.
There will be much deliberation amongst the Art Gowns Models, as to how we would like to present these & possibly more guitars on Art Gowns. While we are waiting to hear from all of the Art Gowns Models, my totally hip cousin, Boogapony, would like to say a few words.
Peace & love everyone! I’m fresh off a Jimi Hendrix tribute post over on Art Gowns & as you know, if it rocks, I’m in! I asked Tim about who some of his fave guitar players are. Here is my pick, of Tim’s faves; Barry Gibbons from ZZ Top.
Back to you, AGM Holly!
Thank you, Boogapony! Not only is Barry Gibbons an ace guitar player, but the song gave me time to change Art Gowns, hair & make-up. I like the feel of the gauntlets for all this rockin’ out! Eric Clapton is another fave guitarist of Tim’s, so here’s my choice for Tim!
It will be a few months until the guitars are 100%.
Nonetheless, if you are interested in buying one of these guitars for $800.00, you can reserve one now! Contact Tim Price at email@example.com.

Resa’s new One-Eye ~ Should she fill in the Eye?
I became very confused when I found this illustration of Frida Kahlo in the street.
You see, she’s wearing a daft punk t-shirt, and has tattoos. Did she have tattoos? I don’t think so!
What’s a daft punk? There was no shop or restaurant nearby, that was named daft punk. Good thing, because how dare they use her image to promote themselves!
Turns out daft punk is a band. Also, turns out that the piece is by an artist named Fabian Ciraolo. He does illustrations that mash up old and new pop culture. I’m not sure what I think, but I am provoked.

House of Heart has a really lovely post up right now. If you like Frida, check it out!! Frida Kahlo and Nicholas Muray
Also, you will find at the end of a most informative post, a stunning poem by; Holly Rene Hunter.
This doorway mural was painted during the onset of the lockdown.
Hi! Here I am first time out socially, in 12 weeks. It was great to see 2 family members.
I’ve decided to grow out my grey hair. That thing in the centre of my chest is a bottle of hand sanitizer on a lanyard. I wear OS men’s shirts as a form of PPE. I hand painted my mask.
I’ve been reading more than usual. Check out my Art Gowns review of 5 of Shehanne Moore’s Historical Romance novels, by clicking on the book cover below!
I can’t get enough of gowns, especially in a romantic historic setting . I can’t get enough of street art.
There must be a correlation?
I also enjoyed reading Mike Steeden’s The Blue-Eyed Cat
Let me know what you’ve enjoyed reading during your time on hold!

Here’s a promo for Mike Steeden’s new book; The Snow White Tigress. It was made by George, over at Zoolon Hub If you are a writer, and would like a promo made with original music, check him out! Very reasonable prices.
I’m staying home, mostly. I’ve got a myriad of creative projects on the go & 2 cats to boss me around.
“That old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.”
“The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.”
“The more there are riots, the more repressive action will take place, and the more we face the danger of a right-wing takeover and eventually a fascist society.”
“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.”
“It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.”
“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
“Mankind must put and end to war or war will put an end to mankind.””
“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Not sure who painted MLK Jr. but the Zianna Oliphant art is signed:
“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”
More art from Toronto’s Graffiti Alley’s artists’ peaceful protest.
The straw that broke the camel’s back.
There is LOTS of writing in the alley. I couldn’t capture it all. Sometimes the lane was too, narrow. Also, there was a portrait of MLK JR. coming up & I was running out of battery.
James Baldwin – “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
Smaller bits from the alley.
