Politely being rude to financial big wigs since 1991
The Bruxist Collective's take on Art and (as Alfred Jarry might put it) P'finance.
A numerically dyslexic artist (and reluctant consumer) shares his dearth of financial wisdom and resulting frustrations with his Bank Manager. Read personal letters from the elusive Art to his even more elusive Bank Manager. See a comic rendition of a Day In The Life Of The Bouncy Banker. Art struggles to make sense of the senseless as the Authorities of Finance wobble but never quite fall down. Full of hot air they float above it all! When they bounce it is with impunity! Why are there no Remorseful Bankers? Can Art and Finance ever coexist? Do you have a Blue Chip on your shoulder? When bankers get together they talk about Art. When artists get together they talk about money. Oscar Wilde
For Depression Art, letters to the bank manager, and an artist's current obsession with the World Financial Maelstrom click on The Art of the Bouncy Banker. For experimental short stories, picture writings, comics, Art encounters and commentary, paintings, drawings and sculptures in cardboard, foamcore, hotglue, staples and newspaper go to the Bruxist Manifesto. Also painting with found hardware store paint of dubious origin and toxicity, burning lines into wood, and etching in virtual stone my current, usually oblique thoughts on the state of the planet. For even more comics and a brazenly defeatist view of this planet go to THE WORLD IN DISARRAY.

ART FOR BARTER
In my ongoing efforts to work around our flawed economic system I hereby begin offering my own ORIGINAL ART in exchange for various goods and/or services.
I also offer PRODUCT EDITIONS. These are priced but also available for barter. Be aware that I am making this up as I go wary as I am of entering the world of "monetized blogs". Art for Art/Art for Things/Art for Services/
CURRENT ART FOR BARTER: Unemployed Angel-acrylic on paper-11"x 14"
Current Wants: recycled wood panels, Art (always), working turntable (with amps), car , wagon, carpentry work, airmiles-enough for me to take the family to England.
