“BetweentheWEEN’nHaLLo” Brooch

by David LaPlantz ·

Between the “Ween” and the “Hallo” life gets really, really scary. And, don’t forget the mid-term elections follows the “Ween” and with all of the usual and unusual tricks and treats the Pols have in mind, the Fall so far, shapes up to be a very scary time. Oh yes, don’t forget ebola in the mix. What a caldron of frights are being stirred and shaken…

“PointingWithemptyCartoonBubbles” Broocho.

by David LaPlantz ·

“What’s the point?” the cartoon characters said to each other. “We are so limited by what the cartoonist allows us to say and talk about.” I wish, just once, we could wrestle away that ink pen and get to ink in how we feel about the strip and the silly activities he daily plans for us!”

Much like real life, we all hafta grab the ink pen and draw in what we really wanna say to humanity. Grab the pen now…

“OvalSchmoval” Broocho

by David LaPlantz ·

The opening that bled the white allowed the viewers to contemplate upon the small element emerging from the darker (side) background. In a purely philosophical manner of contemplation, what emerges also descends and therein lies the lie. Then again, maybe the truth…

“Lookin’4Amour” Broocho

by David LaPlantz ·

The eyes gazed across the romantic horizon and wondered out loud. The heart cried out and hoped someone might hear and respond. The same adventure goes on day after day and night after night. Is it possible the matching synchronism will be clearly obvious, so two people will see how right they are for each other?

“IWonderedAllDay” Broocho

by David LaPlantz ·

 

After the other day, I wondered all day long about the percentage of chances of something more developing. As world events unfold, life looks more fragile and delicate. What happens next just might be up to the stars, the idiots, the brave, the smart and the individual who draws the short straw.

“EditedEdges3Whole” Broocho

by David LaPlantz ·

In the quest for newer solutions, it was time to eliminate. What you can’t see adds or subtracts in curious ways. You get to fill in the blanks and come up with your own visual conclusions. Like life, what you see is not always what you really see? What? Educate – eliminate  - alienate…

“ThreadsWarpWeft” Brooch

by David LaPlantz ·

Within the slender thread that holds our sanity together there resides a resilience and strength that transcends our human understanding. Be careful to feed the fertilizer that continues to strengthen our resolve and stick-to-itiveness to never give up in the face of often, overwhelming circumstances.
