Chicago Exploring July 5-8, 2019 'Images of free speech' remembered

July 4, 2021, Images of free Speech: My Art Gallery of Alberta sketch study of Andy Warhol's 1973 Mao. Anti-Chinese communism propaganda spotted on downtown Edmonton kiosks. Sorry, but I won't post any photos of that street propaganda here. Tonight my researching wife Sarah is watching the old Firing Line PBS programs re Chairman Mao's legacy & Taiwan's quest for independence. I would personally like to see weapons of mass destruction turned into future plowshares for peace between Taiwan, the USA, and China.

I'm not really into style. I'm more into confidence or having something to say. Virgil Abloh.
Figures of speech, helped me remind the Alberta government who they work for, and that it is we the people they must respect in a free and open Democracy. June 2021, The Alberta government lifted the ban on my right to freely express my art on t-shirts I choose to wear anywhere inside the Alberta Legislature. Photos Wearing my O'Canada tee'

Sketch Studies while in Chicago
2021-07-07 More than 230 people were fatally shot in shootings over the Fourth of July weekend. 14 dead in Chicago, it's a bloody Warzone! 2 years July 7, 2019, my wife Sarah and I visited Chicago's art museums. 1 AM I went looking for some food as everything was closed inside the Sheraton Grand. (Sketch study)LOUD CRACK, 3 black men running while a 4th black man lay on the road twitching in a pool of blood. This all happened in front of our hotel.

Ironically the museum that hosted Virgil Abloh's figures of speech blocked me on Twitter...

If it quacks like a magpie, it must be...
