A solo is like a meditation on the song. You find a piece of filigree and then try to play something in total empathy with everything else that’s going on. You can get quite spiritual about soloing. It’s almost like channeling. It’s not there one moment, but then all of a sudden it is. I’m sure anyone who’s creative has had that moment. That point where it just sparks.

The Dialectic of Detroit Oil on Board 3 panels (42x108) (132x108) (42x108) The Auto Industry has been a titanic force in South East Michigan: shaping and re-shaping life over the past century. The ongoing struggle for control over the industry and the wealth it has produced has produced huge consequences for the people of Detroit and Michigan as a whole. Competition between profits and shareholders on the one side and workers and communities on the other has become a defining feature of our region. While the big three have “modernized” and now again enjoy vast profits, their resurgence has become increasingly disconnected from the people who helped build the industry. Through the auto industry and its workers a way of life was built, and now the same industry has become instrumental in destroying that way of life. Without solidarity and resistance, the workers will be consumed and abandoned by the very system and industry they serve.
Just a concept on what Sugilite’s room might look like, this was going to be for a really cool YouTube channel but I drizzed that up– but this was still fun to do, I took a few cues from Garnet and amethyst’s rooms!
Molly McIntire dressed as a TF2 Medic. I chose BLU because she is in a roleplaying storyline of mine, and within this story, she is very close to Milo, the little BLU Medic. I did, however print an uncolored copy which I will colour her in the RED variation as well.
