Ashley Wood Is Up To No Good

January 11th, 2006 by dru

Ashley Wood. I’ve been a fan of this illustrator/designer from down under for a few years now. He is a three-time Spectrum Award winner and a two-time Communication Arts winner. You may know him by his work at Popbot or Bambaland but recently he just started up his own blog (who hasn’t?). It’s not much right now, but it is interesting to get some insight into the mind and process of an amazing artist. Though he works mainly in oils, his philosophy is that people react simply to the drawings under it.

    One of Traficant’s paintings on “prison board” a.k.a. carboard is selling on eBay right now for $540 with 4 days left. That’s wack. This man has been a career criminal turned broke pimp prison celebrity painter and I’ll bet that painting sells for over $1000.

    Any betters out there? Actually, can any one loan me $541 to place a bid?

    This is a neat website. But I’m not sure what you do-what is it that you do? What is Coloriot?
    Anyway, I’m unhappy that you do not support Mr. Traficant and his work. Thanks for putting a link up of my site!

    This is my personal website. Nothing more or less. I just put up things I find that are interesting on the web and some personal work. As far as Mr. Traficant goes, I think I’m just a product of local Ohio media. I don’t hate him personally and to tell you the truth I’d love to have one of James Traficant’s paintings. I just think he’s an interesting man.

    The “career criminal” was a cheap shot and has no basis in fact.

    The truth is that Traficant–like David Irving, Ernst Zundel, Germar Rudolph, etal.–defied the Zionist lobby and proved that the bandit state of Israel had falsely imprisoned Cleveland auto worker John Demjanjuk.

    Traficant and his team of investigators had discovered exculpatory evidence–found in a dumpster behind the DOJ’s OSI office– exonerating Demjanjuk of being the fictious “Ivan the Terrible” of holocaust lore.

    And better yet, HMS Czar, Michael Chertoff, was one of those responsible for the destruction of that evidence.

    The Israeli government admitted that the OSI evidence was fraudulent, and Traficant was allowed to go to Israel and accept Demjanjuk’s release from prison.

    Name one other Congressman that would put his life and freedom on line for a constituent.

    BTW, during the so-called “ethics committee” hearings broadcast over C-SPAN, Traficant would stand and raise his right hand and request that Hefley and Berman require that all members testifying before the committee
    swear an oath to the truthfullness of their testimony. He was always refuse by Berman/Hefley, at one point threatening Traficant with removal from the committee room if he continued to ask that the oath be required.

    Traficant had also drafted legislation–passed into law– limiting the powers of the IRS in seizing taxpayer assets.

    Hey Scot with only one ‘t’…. This isn’t a political forum, I’m sorry if you haven’t realized that.

    BTW, that painting sold for 2K. If that isn’t robbery I don’t know what is. Lighten up.
