Professor Falada. Ink drawing on a photograph by Susan Owen

Please meet Dr. Nicolai Falada, M.D., Ph. D., and professor of ancient forensic science at a small middle-western university.  He has taught there for 40 years and is highly respected by his colleagues, who tend nonetheless to give him a wide berth.  Dr. Falada has never married, lives alone and does not socialize.  Thirty years ago a group of fraternity boys, having partaken of some form of demon alcohol, decided to help themselves to a tour of the good doctor’s home.

There was, of course, an in-depth investigation into the disappearance, but nothing much ever came of it and since the young men tended to be somewhat unpredictable, it was presumed that they had decided to pursue ventures other than college, and any interest  faded and was eventually forgotten.

The professor has always kept his basement locked but since the ‘invasion’, he has invested in an alarm as well.  One cannot be too careful.

The Skosh books are taking form, more news and pictures soon. Posted by Susan.

Firewall by Dennis Kish

I’m still using this post as source material. We’re both busy with the book project and have discovered that bookbinding seems not as hard as it looks.

This may be beginners luck of course.

Update:Copy editing is harder than bookbinding.-Posted by Dennis

Coming soon…..

We’re working on this now, about to begin printing this week (7-10,) then on to the binding. We’re aiming for Christmas, and we’ll publish ordering information soon. -Posted by Dennis

Mad Cow, a digital painting by Dennis Kish

Last January in this post I showed you a new print and its source photograph.  Here is another image from the same source, I’ll post a few more in the days ahead. So far this crop of a totally boring sunset has yielded over a dozen images, made by re-arranging the information of the original.  As Principal Poop asked in  Don’t Crush That Dwarf, Hand me the Pliers “What is reality?” – Posted by Dennis

A Higgs boson……

…..materialized  at the Vatican and announced : “THE GAWD PARTICLE IS IN THE HOUSE!!!”

“Blasphemy! Heresy!”  Said the College of Cardinals, causing the acolytes to scatter in alarm.  Said the boson, “au contraire my scarlet minions, without me you have no mass.”  -Posted by Dennis
