I enloyed the Pixar movie "CARS" as much as most but at some point the idea of living cars started to feel sort of creepy. Already we have cars that talk to us. Do we need this? I can see, some time in the future, how the kids that love "CARS" the movie might actually think they might want living organic cars and machines but I certainly hope they think it through first.

Wolverine is a character from the X-Men comic. He's part-man, part-animal, in a long tradition of characters such as, Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde, Tarzan, The Wolfman, etc, trapped in a struggle between bestial impulses and civil order. As a superhero working within a team this makes for an interesting social dynamic. He must work with others in an organization, while at the same time he's at his best when he goes berserk and attacks the enemy. He's basically a murderous psychopath barely under control. In a lot of ways so is James Bond, he just looks smoother, nobler and more refined. I think these characters allow us to cut-loose of our civilized selves in a safe and harmless way. In a story these characters are very appealing but would be awful people to know in real life.

I painted this for a sun themed school charity auction.
My nickname for it now is "Retarded Sunfish", because I accidentally coated the front of it with an acrylic retarding agent instead of varnish. I was working on two paintings at the same time and switching back and forth between materials. Whoops! It seems to have washed off okay.

Revision: I should have probably mentioned that a retarding agent slows the drying time for acrylic paints. This allows for more blending with acrylics as they are a fast drying paint. Using it accidentally as a varnish caused the painting to be perpetually sticky, hence the need to remove it.
