Fat Drunk and Bipolar – Review – “A”

by Tony Shea December 14, 2014

Leatherwood Studios: Topeka’s 1980s Music Underground Resurfaces

by Ben Easher December 11, 2014

Mood Organ (Progression of 8 Panels)

by Tony Shea November 24, 2014

In the old days, when I was still painting on canvas with brushes, I would often paint over  an image numerous times, sometimes over a period of years, working through a number of progressions.
