Draloowikem,(his real name spelled backwards) was the nom de plume of a close childhood friend of mine whose friendship I reestablished in recent years. Sadly, he died of a heart attack a couple of years ago on Christmas eve while creating a painting in his backyard using his new mode of painting by shooting paint filled condoms at a canvas with his paint cannon. This painting was from an earlier period when he used toothpicks to paint in oils on glass. He created some politically radical paintings that he turned into postcards and sent unsolicited to thousands of people around the world at great personal expense never asking for payment. He was one of most unusual free thinkers I have ever known. He entitled this painting “American Jihad”.

    This reminds me of the FREEMASONS (nice piece).

    BigK convinced me to change to Google Chrome, seems alot better and I seem to have spell check in the comments now.

    Yes, Freemasons except for that “Arbeit Macht Frei” part. Scary but cool.

    Although now that I think about it, maybe that was the point (I mean the “Arbeit Macht Frei” with the dollar sign etc.)

    Critics sometimes say ugly things about author Dan Brown but I have found his books entertaining and rather educational reads. I recently read “The Lost Symbol” that contains a lot of historical trivia about Washington D.C. and the Freemasons plus some cool tattoo ideas for those of you thinking of inking.

    Don’t tell my daughter. She can’t wait until she’s 18 to start covering herself with ink.
