Wes Wilson

Wes Wilson, one of the original psychedelic rock poster artists in the late 1960s, died on January 24, 2020.

I had one of his posters when I was a teenager in the 1960s. I didn’t take good care of it and ultimately threw it out. Fortunately, I got another copy a few years ago at Wolfgang’s Vault online and framed it. See art for sale at the Vault here.

I had a postcard of this poster.

Trump lies update 1/20/20

He lies more than ever.

Trump takes advantage of the fact that if the media keeps accusing him of lying, he and his supporters will say they’re biased. The media understates what a liar Trump is in order to appear balanced and fair. It took most of the media years to call him a liar. They used much wimpier terms instead of stating the truth. Nobody will confront Trump and call him a liar to his face. Trump wins on this one.

100% correct!
