A few years ago, I was awarded a Professional Development Course for artists. Part of the homework was to write an Artist Statement. I worked and worked; polishing an eliminating, until I only had the kernel that was “me.” When I read it out; I was told: “That’s what everyone would say.”
I got tired of being known as just “Doug,” or “Oh, him,” or “If he’s coming; I’m not going,” and decided to remake my image — “Doug the Beloved” [the guy who used to be just “him.”] I was just about to announce this, when there was a Pandemic and the bar was closed — why does this sort of thing always happen to me?

Teach your child toilet cleanliness with this washable vinyl book of factory farm "poop-up" scenes. Each scene portrays a different potty training cleanliness issue with admonitions in large print such as: Antibiotic-resistant bacteria lagoon — "Wash hands" and Manure spill — "Wipe yourself"
The book's colorful graphics explain both industrial farming and potty training in child-friendly terms. The "poop-ups" are fun and some are plain hilarious!
