24 September, 2023...

Sunday. Eyes are burning. Everyone has been sick, except for me. Did I finally catch it??? Who knows. Either way, (sick or not), it's time for ARTZ!!! (and a little time travel...)

"smote" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

smote (sep. 2023).png

[Felt pen and colored pencil on paper with digital embellishments and color tweaking.] Just an abstract but it seems pretty violent to me. In my freakish universe, only an uncaring, all powerful, blind, idiot god would have the ability to cause violence of this nature. Give me a chocolate milkshake, please... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


I have once again updated the MUSEUM OF POSTCARD ART site! There are now 160 different works of art to examine and enjoy, including THIS 100+ year old card (with a sad story...)

[Digital photograph taken with my phone.] A batch of living entities from our garden visually captured against a bluish tinged void. ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

P.S. - Have you ever seen the film, DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS?

"Some Sort of Insectoid" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

[Crayon and felt pen on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color exaggeration.] It came to me in a dream, and it left over a bowl of soggy grasshoppers... (We were both disgusted...) ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


"My Earliest Still Existing Internet Activity? (Perhaps) (23 aug. 2004)" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

my earliest still existing internet activity (perhaps) (23 aug. 2004).png

[Cropped screenshot of an ancient blog post...] I was calling myself BRAVE RAIDEEN at the time (a reference to a Shogun Warrior toy from the 1970s), and I started a blog called "Giant Space Robots in Therapy." The blog was created as a project for a course I was taking at a southwest Washington state university on "INTERACTIVE FICTION." I learned a lot in the course. Sadly, the instructor for the class, who was brilliant, is no longer amongst the living... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

"meh blah" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

[Felt pen and brush pen on badly water-damaged and slightly moldy paper.] Okay. I would normally make up a story here, but THIS time, I just want to talk about LIFE INSURANCE. You need it. Get some. Let people know what you want done with you remains and left-over junk. Do it. Thanks! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


"Ghost Tub" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

[Digital drawing created on my phone.] Nothing is better for the spirit than a good soak! Hot tub!!! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


"Becoming Minotaur" by RFY (Holy Fool)

[Sick (as in "unwell") selfie run through the MOSH machine!] It started slowly, a scratchy throat and a heaviness... After a few days, however, I realized what was happening....and there was nothing that I could do to stop it... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


"We Need to Talk About It" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

[Felt pen and crayon on notebook page with digital embellishments and color.] Monsters have problems, too. Mental health is important. Never forget that. Find someone to talk with... (Or be destroyed...) ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)


24 Sep. 2023... Yes, again...


I fear that I'll need to headache medicine. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!!
