It seems Netflix didn’t want me to do anything but imagine Kevin Spacey as a cat this weekend, and this was the result. I’d vote for him. Or clean his litter box. Whichever he required.

 

Now stop looking at cats on the Internet and go watch season 3 of House of Cards. You won’t be sorry.

Last week Idaho made news on the webs and in my morning coffee when local Rep. Vito Barbieri (R) took time out of a hearing to discuss which hole or holes leads to the vagina in the human female anatomy, whether or not women could just swallow a pill with a camera in it to diagnose a legitimate pregnancy or a lack of Jesus in the heart.  Once educated on the matter I’m sure moved on to more important matters like finding out which entrances to the House he should be using during business hours, honestly I’m not sure, but I love the idea of him sitting there playing with one of those little cameras, wondering not where it had been, but where it could go. Bravo, Idaho, forward thinking like that is what keeps political progress and science swiftly moving forward equitably in the colon of America. Or vagina. Whichever.

Anyway, thanks goes out to Vito for helping me pick which two US State Senators to draw next for my Politicians as Cats series. I owe you one, Vito, just let me know how I can pay you back, just as long as it doesn’t involve doing anything medical in your state.

Woody Guthrie as a cat in honor of pineapple infused This Machine beer release tomorrow

Woody Guthrie - pineapple infused This Machine IPA, THURSDAY February 26th, 5pm, Oak & Ore
Woody Guthrie – pineapple infused This Machine IPA, THURSDAY February 26th, 5pm, Oak & Ore

 

 

Oak & Ore is a new and amazing place to get your temperature controlled draft beer fix, it’s rustic, clean, industrial, and modern all the same time, and if that isn’t enough to entice you, tomorrow the Marshall Brewing team will be showing off a keg of a pineapple infused version of This Machine IPA, an incredible beer I was lucky enough to sample This Machine, named for the iconic Woody Guthrie guitar with that very message printed on its face. The beer is by far the best IPA I’ve ever had, so I’m extremely excited to try the limited pineapple infused version, lovingly called Pineapple Express, tomorrow at Oak & Ore in Oklahoma City’s Plaza District. Beer starts pouring at 5pm, get there fast if you want to keep your glass, supplies are limited.

I hope the people over at Marshall Brewing like my take on their beer and Woody, and I hope you liked it too.

Politicians as Cats – New York edition (with extry kitty, Governor Cuomew!)

Well, as part of an exercise to increase my stylus-foo I have found myself looking at NY politicians specifically to turn into cats, on my tiny phone screen, with an ultimate goal of producing all US Senators into feline figureheads. To finish off the Senators I did a bit of research, starting with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. I prefer to use the political equivalent of glamor shots, usually of the politicians standing in front of a clearly fake library, but in the top of my Google search was a photo so picturesque, so enchanting I had to use the Internet’s most beautiful cat sensation as inspiration. It came out beautifully, I’d like to think. I certainly wouldn’t read over her legislation for spelling errors. 

As for Schumer and Cuomo I simply grabbed my stylus, closed my eyes, meditated on the American flag while The Boss played softly in the next room and their digital paintings just happened, like the sum total of dead relocated homeless artists used my hand as a vessel. God bless New York, may its picket fence feline kings and queens roam free and fed for lives to come.

Politicians as Cats: State Senator Tummies Avella (NY-D)

Wrote legislation banning babies and machetes

 

I’ve been teaching myself to use a stylus and digital paint techniques, and what better way to do that is there than after painting the Senators (State Senators, local politicians, heck, sometimes even Governors) one at a time, as they make the news? None that I can think of, but when I do I’ll do that, instead.

 

Recently New York has seen a string of machete attacks, two that I can find in public records in the last year. Queens politician and state Senator Tony Avella is of the opinion that machetes should be banned, due to this horrific upturn in Vietnam era weaponry based attacks, which brings to light a few lingering questions, like – How will lawn service experts cut through the thicks of jungle in the Queens suburbs? Does a brisket sabre qualify as a machete, and if so, how will this legislation deal with the need for smaller buns where businesses serve sliced brisket now that they have to use butter knives to cut BBQ? And most importantly, as long as we are banning physical attack types one at a time, and not just assault or murder overall, are there plans in place to legislate against making any more movies based on toys from my childhood? I’m starting to take that shit personally. Whatever happens, I hope Senator Tony continues his epic and time critical battles against out-of-date arms and county squirrel massacres*.

Politicians as Cats: Senator Mitch McConnell (KY-R)

It appears back in October a boat owned by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was found to be hiding 90 pounds of cocaine, just enough to kick off his 73rd birthday today, February 20th. I sure hope they were able to find a secondary sources, which seems likely, considering the people he knows at work.

 

It’s not a new tradition in the American political realm to get caught smuggling, Roosevelt’s grandfather smuggle opium into China, Joe Kennedy supposedly smuggled rum in alumni events, which seems a little like smuggling xanax into Lindsay Lohan. The point is, Mitch is in good company and I’m sure that whatever party favors he plans on handing out tonight they will be in plentiful supply, tax free, and might possibly come with an official Senatorial straw.

So for my birthday today I thought I’d give the good people of the Internet and my friends a gift, instead of begging for shots of whiskey made in more northern states at the Red Dog (a beginners and retiree stripper’s strip club that serves a nice burger here in Okc).  I’m working on a series that exhibits the U. S. Senators as cats, so for my birthday I will give you a preview with my home state’s offerings, Jim Inhofe and James Lankford, with bonus* district representative, Sally Kern and Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin (added by request).  If you enjoy this keep an eye out, I’ll be posting more state senators throughout the year.

Anthony Pego in the gazette, Dec 2014

 

I was lucky enough to be included in an Oklahoma Gazette feature on local Native artists in their December 17th 2014 issue. Kory Oswald did an amazing job, the piece was fascinating, and he went above and beyond by including a video showing a short interview on YouTube. The link is below. Be sure to keep an eye our for Kory’s future work, written or in video format, and thank you to the Gazette for thinking of me!

Cat in a Fish Suit

I painted this for my sweet teaching gig at Wine & Palette, here in Okc. I definitely absorbed as much Van Gough as I could when I was an avid oil painter in my twenties, but I feel like that cat represents my inner foodie, the selfish part that wants a perfect burger to exist in Okc, but instead finds himself dressed up in a fish suit, again, forced to eat Fancy Feast or ice cream shared off the spoon of a crying, lonely middle aged woman in pajamas. Not that there’s anything wrong with pajamas, ice cream,  or middle aged women without cats.  I guess I’m just saying that neither should involve a fish suit. Or don’t trust a fish burger.  Whichever means more to you. Just please, someone in Oklahoma City metro make a burger that doesn’t taste like a crazy cat lady made it.
