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: Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

We are ringing in a new year and coasting along a bit during the holidays, getting our bearings as we contemplate doing it all over again. What a treat to have Hurricane Nancy with us to share more of her work. This is what Nancy says about the above artwork: “If only life was this simple. I could dress up and be whatever I want for any occasion. Not get sick or worry about our future. Just dress up and decide to make a great holiday and bright future!”

And Nancy has this to say about the second artwork: “As I look around here I see lots of characters who play at making the Christmas season a real joy for all.”
