Ricardo Bloch: Huckleberry Dick

Huckleberry Dick began as a collage work by Ricardo Bloch in 1995, and has now been published as a facsimile of the original, in a limited-edition of 250 copies, printed by Lalande Digital Art Press.

Copies are available directly from the author for only 15€ plus shipping.

Using the classic glue and scissors technique, during an obsessive spell in a cabin by Lake Superior in the summer of 1995, Ricardo blended Classics Illustrated adaptations of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick. Starting with page one, and using two copies of each comic book, Ricardo advanced page by page until the climactic page 48. Images and/or fragments of text were cut and pasted to create a seemingly seamless hybrid story. The task was facilitated, or in fact made possible, because both Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick are first person narratives that recount tales of personal discovery, of boats and water, and of a friendship with a man of color.

It may not completely surprise those that have read the books, that the coupling of the two stories has brought to light the subliminal homoerotic themes underlying their narratives.

Sarah Palin, Baby!

Sarah Palin. Our next Vice President? Not pregnant here, that's for sure. She's going to be a grandmother? Holy wow! Talk about Store Front Windows! As it turns out, this photo is a fake. See here for the inside story on fake Sarah Palin photos (there's a fake one of her posing in a bikini and holding a rifle).

HEY KIDS! NOW that you're here, CLICK HERE to enjoy my music video (for drilling for dollars, babe, Sarah Palin).
