This is such a whimsical character and is so full of personality. The idea of a Halloween cheerleader is original and I don't think I'v...



Just one unremarkable week of
Ghostbusting, dog walking and painting in black.
Pizza with anchovies and Lo Mein, too.
Napping in between dreams of green snake infested
hotels, not much reading but that's
just as well.
In the city of Townville a small boy died.
Townville, where demons walk in the form
of adolescent boys with a fetish for firearms,
Townville, where Blossom and Buttercup failed
to arrive to save the day
or a little boy in a coma.
Did he dream?
In those four days, he lived out his life
in a Superman costume then,
returned to Krypton.
All this happened in a week,
Just one unremarkable week.


Blackbirdmotel's Profile Picture
Karen A. Carter
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
The idea of mortality is fascinating to me as an artist. The making of art is a way of preserving a moment in history. It is believed that the first work of art was a single handprint in iron oxide ochre, the ancient symbol of life and blood. In spite of our desire to connect with our ancient ancestors, they remain alien and distant. The only real link is through mythology.
