Death and Taxes: 2008It's been quite a ride.
After several months in production, Death and Taxes: 2008 is finally released...
Death and Taxes is a representational poster of the federal discretionary budget; the amount of money that is spent at the discretion of your elected representatives in Congress. Basically, your federal income taxes. The data is from the President's budget request for 2008. It will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress by October 1st to begin the fiscal year.
The poster provides a uniquely revealing look at our national priorities, that fluctuate yearly, according to the wishes of the President, the power of Congress, and the will of the people. If you pay taxes, then you have paid for a small part of everything in the poster.
The poster has been purchased by directors in the pentagon, members of Congress, professors, CEO's and everyday tax payers all over the world!

Artists are Underpricing Themselves
For a very long time, society has conditioned us to believe that everything has to be dirt cheap, art is also included as being perceived as a cheap product and that artists should be treated as cheap commodities. It is a sad reality that many artists have to face when they want to make a career out of their profession, but that doesnt mean we should accept this conditioning, if an artist wishes to price their work high, then they should have every right to. Not only does it take decades for an artist to hone their skills, it takes days, months or even years to finish one piece of work depending on the artistic profession, an artist should be able to get their money's worth for
