"Nonsense Fest" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

Today is Tuesday, although it wasn't Tuesday when I started this post (somewhere below.) I collage most of my current posts together over a couple o days. That's what makes them so nonsensical and scattered! Hooray! (It also makes them more like REAL LIFE which is a series of unconnected, random events.) So...just roll with it! That's how we do it!

"Hidden Inside the Nonsense" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

hidden inside the nonsense.png

[Felt pen, crayon, and gel pen on paper with digital embellishments and color.] Just makin' shit! And, cuz why not, I'm going to (just about) give this piece away. CHEAPTHRILLS! I'm making 23 editions of the image and letting them go for only 0.0023 tezos each! (Remarkable!) Enjoy, folks!!! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"Young and Foolish Then" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

young and foolish then.png

[Liner pen on notebook page, layered over moshed image, with digital embellishments and color.] As a youngster, I was only an amateur fool. I fooled for fun, without understanding the history and techniques of true FOOLERY. Now, however, I'm a Professional Fool with a degree in "HUMANITIES!" (The most foolish of all degrees!) I have to admit, though... I still fool for fun! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Weirdo)

[Liner pen on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments, color, and moshing!] It phased in, the dastardly fiend, and it stole my last sprinkled donut!!!! Dammit! Dang inter-dimension beings... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"Nonsense Poem (10 sep 22)" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

nonsense poem (10 sep 22).png

[Liner pen on notebook page with digital embellishments and color.] If we take away the DIRECT meaning of words and use them for sounds, we get a tone poem. I'm influenced by Dada poetry and other rhythmic, nonsensical writing. Fun to make. Fun to perform. (I should make a recording of some of my nonsense poems and release the performance as a work of cryptoart!) ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"Goblin Fighting Off a Nasty Curse" by RFY (HF) & FEH (TT)

goblin fighting off a nasty curse.jpg

[Felt pen, liner pen, and mechanical pencil on notebook page with minor digital embellishment.] This is another great collaboration between me and my three-year-old granddaughter. This time, I started the image, and she drew some strange energy swirling around the goblin (who was minding his own business when I drew him!) Great stuff! (I love her controlled chaos!) ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool) & Felicity Echo Hanson (Toddler Terror)

theater of cruelty.jpg

[Photograph of a shrunken head taken in Long Beach, Washington, USA. The photo was later cropped, moshed, and tweaked for flavor.] The audience was full of demons; the performers were us... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"Turtle Follows the Wrong Constellation" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

turtle follows the wrong constellation.png

[Felt pen, paint pen, and paper collage on reclaimed cardboard over pink cardstock with digital embellishments and color.] Silly turtle! That was a book on ASTROLOGY that you read, not ASTRONOMY! Now you'll never figure out how to navigate by the stars... (Didn't your horoscope say, "You will encounter difficulties today!" It knew! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"Abstract Crowd" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

abstract crowd.jpg

[Moshed photograph.] Even though this is clearly just a randomly generated, weird digital image, I looks to me like it shows a crowd at some kind of techno concert or event. I imagine pounding bass, strange electronic noises, sweeping lights, and just a hint of alien consciousness. Reminds me of my youth! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"Tempted (But Grumpy About It)" by RFY (HF) & FEH (TT)

tempted (but grumpy about it).png

[Felt pen, crayon, and gel pen on canvas panel with digital embellishments and color.] Felicity (my granddaughter) and I like making monsters... (Well... I like making them, anyway.) Here viewers can see the results of a recent collaborations between the two of us. (Felicity is THREE, by the way, so her art style is much more primal than mine. I love the energy... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool) & Felicity Echo Hanson (Toddler Terror)

"Figure (Of Contempt)" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

figure (of contempt).png

[Paint pen and colored pencil on paper with minor digital embellishments.] According Rene Gerard, human groups NEED scapegoat - someone to BLAME for anything and everything. Groups that have this type of figure form strong bonds and have unified goals and ideologies. (See VIOLENCE AND THE SACRED for more on Gerard's thought.) I feel that THIS figure that I've drawn could easily be declared a FOLK DEVIL by some groups - because he's different. (He's also two-dimensional, but that's not his fault.) Moral of the story: none. I just like to read and draw... Ha! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"Not What They Seem" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

not what they seem.png

[Felt pen, paper collage, sticker collage, and packing tape on hand-cut, printed paper with digital embellishments.] This was a postcard that I made (and mailed) to a friend of mine. I photographed the collage before mailing it, cuz I have archive fever! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

P.S. - Let's make this one an (almost) freebie! I'm making 23 editions of the cryptoart version available for only 0.0023 tezos each! Ready to grab??? Go!

[Colorfully printed paper covered in a black, wax-like layer, scratched with a wooden stick to created colorful designs - with minor digital embellishments and color tweaking.] My granddaughter, Felicity, and I worked on this one. I guess I've been in a Halloween mood lately! She tends to work in a more abstract vein... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool) & Felicity Echo Hanson (Toddler Terror)
