Hurricane Nancy: Animals and Free Speech

How is your year shaping up?

A new year is off and running with its inevitable highs and lows. “Here’s to life being good, despite it all!” answers artist Hurricane Nancy. Add to that a couple of new works to consider this time around, with accompanying commentary by the artist . . .

#439: I am an animal lover.

“My cat Sweetheart was adopted when he was young and feral. If I disrespect him, he will bite me. ‘Yikes,’ my friends say, ‘get a nice docile indoor cat.’ But I have come to see from him that animals, and even people, will bite if they are mistreated.”

#440: Penalty for speaking freely.

“Free and open speech to help us get an honest look at living ideas won’t hurt anything, even if some idiots believe that it does!”

Hurricane Nancy: LION and SNAKE DANCE

Art by Hurricane Nancy. Color by Henry Chamberlain

Hurricane Nancy offers us a portrait of a Lion and a clown. Does the Lion have something to do with the Year of the Tiger? Or is the Lion just waiting for the rest of the trio, the Unicorn and the Bear? On another track, think of this: We have three twos in this year! But it gets better come February the 22nd. On that date, you’ll have the 22nd day of the 2nd month of the year 2022, and on a Tuesday, for a true Twosday! Maybe the clown atop the lion is a nod to the magic and wonderment in the air.

And then we also have a Snake Dance. When it comes to snakes, we all have our own feelings towards these slithery reptiles. Snakes can strike fear or excite the sensual. Indeed, a snake runs the gamut and symbolizes death, rebirth, change, and sexuality. The whole spectrum of life! And, once again, I took the liberty of adding a splash of color. Hope you like it.
