What happened to Instant Elixir Cures All?

This site’s former title, “Instant Elixir Cures All,” is now the publishing imprint for an upcoming series of art books. I will keep you posted on developments via my Blog.

What changed with the 2019 redesign?

The new design aims for accessibility and a fresh look for the new works I am developing. I think you’ll find it easier to navigate and use.

Why do you need a FAQ page?

As a creative professional, I’m kind of a weirdo. One of the most common complaints I get from galleries is that my work is hard to classify. It crosses a lot of genres and is about a lot of topics. I thought this page might help people figure me out.

Who is asking these questions?

Hopefully, you all. These first questions popped up during the redesign, but I’m sure they won’t be the only ones. If you have any questions, please send them to me via my Contact page. I will try to answer them all, and if appropriate, I’ll add them to this page.

Reading your blog, you seem awfully opinionated. Is your work political?

(Cops a dramatic pose.) The making of Art is inherently a Political Action!

Seriously, I admit to being distinctly opinionated, and certain of my opinions about how people relate to the world are expressed in my work. You can read about it on my About page, but I’ll let you parse out the details yourselves. I express more opinions in my Blog, and even more to my long-suffering friends and relatives.

How come you have no social media buttons on this site? Don’t you want to be popular?

This is where we trip over one of my opinions. The Economist magazine recently released their predictions for 2019, including the rise of “slow social” media as a response to the many security and misinformation scandals we’ve all seen. “Slow social” refers to making sharing less automatic in order to slow the pace of viral messaging. Apparently, hitting the Share button is bad for our social health, and taking those few extra seconds to copy/paste a URL into a post is enough to let cooler heads prevail. I don’t know if that’s true, but I like the idea. So I will be very grateful if you like my work enough to share it with your social network – manually, please.
