build-up of stuff/Banking on Art

I have a strange way of saving money.
And, unlike a piggy-bank, I don't have to smash it in to cash it in.
Anybody wanna buy some art? Financing plans available

Above Beverage Artwork/High Fructose Coin Syrup

In Progress: a new exploration of Capitalistic Enterprise.
In a cutthroat corporate world, advertising is key. Their method: to Make money Take money.
Within my own twisted world, I've developed a different formula: to Make money Break money. It's counter-capitalistic in nature, yet the yield is impressive. My eventual goal is to create a comprehensive catalog of all our stuff.
No single object of the capitalist era has spread further than this one.

Most all recent warfare serves swiftly to pave the way for an influx of refreshment.
Teeth aside, it's a sweet, syrupy beverage, fizzy and tart.
How could we possibly imagine a world without this fantastic drink?!

the Gamble: Ace up my Sleeve

A little more than 10 weeks ago, I made a costly bet.
The collateral I put forth was one year of my life.
In exchange for this: the promise of artistic notoriety.
The prize: a chance to survive from the making of art alone.
My dream: to build a vehicle with which I could escape from the unfair parameters with which we are dealt.
The goal: achieving freedom from the supposedly inescapable requirement that one must work for somebody else.
Only making art: that's what I want to do.
It's the one thing I can imagine the world could want from me.
Bid now: Card #10

more bang for the buck/Double Dog Dare

Q: What could be better than a gun made from money?A: Another one!
These are never before seen pictures of a sculpture I made and sold in December.
While I was making it I cut a second set of parts to make an identical replica.
If you're interested in owning the second one please speak up.
I dare you.
