The Dead Among Us

Somehow I can't get this line out of my head. WE ARE THE DEAD.  I first cam across that line from the famous Orwell novel 1984, which takes place in a world where freedom is virtually outlawed and everyone lives under constant surveillance by seemingly invisible eyes.  The title refers to the year 1984, when… Continue reading The Dead Among Us

Red Tape: See, Hear, Speak

Continuing on my 'Red Tape' series, this one was pretty fun to do- See No Evil. Hear No Evil. Speak No Evil. I'm sure you've heard that expression many times.  Interestingly, this line originated as a proverb from the ancient Japanese culture in religion and philosophy, first appearing as pictoral maxim that appears in form… Continue reading Red Tape: See, Hear, Speak

T.@.L.L. My new identity

So as you know this site was titled "The Artist as Lisa Lee" from the beginning.  Over time I toyed around with ideas to change it or work up from the original.  I've had lots of different names, but I only kept it to myself because I wasn't so confident about them.  Then when I… Continue reading T.@.L.L.

New Look, Same old Me

As you can see, I've changed the look of my site.  Took out stuff I didn't like, added new ones, shuffled things around.  I've even got a new logo, see above.  That is now my official brand, and I hope to spread it around.  I'll tell you more about the logo another time. Have nice… Continue reading New Look, Same old Me

The Wolfing

And speaking of wolves... There is a werewolf in all of us. No, not a literal werewolf like you see in the cheesy B-horror movies where the full moon rises and someone grows hair and fangs and start rushing out on a bloody rampage across town.  However, it's the last part that's sad but true-… Continue reading The Wolfing

Random Thoughts : Hello Twitter

It's official: I've caught the Twitter Bug! From now on it's where I'll be recording my daily random rants that pop in my head.  It'll also be where I'll take quick note of new ideas that flash before my sight and before it fades away from my short-term memory bank.  At least its more convenient… Continue reading Random Thoughts : Hello Twitter

The Wolf on the Web

You know the familiar phrase "a wolf in sheep's clothing." Figuratively speaking it refers to an evildoer who disguises himself as a friend to deceive his prey.  Sometimes it's hard to see past its disguise, even if he's right next to you.  How much harder to spot it online, where the wolf can take on… Continue reading The Wolf on the Web

The Only One

This was a rather quick and simple piece I whipped up.  Not much planning (except for researching the symbols, yeah gotta keep it accurate), a pretty spontaneous moment.  I often work like that. "There can be only one..." - Highlander I know it's pretty corny to use that line, it's probably been overused to the… Continue reading The Only One

Like a Kid
