i am everyday sheeple

'i am everyday sheeple' ©2008 GregOakes.com

the month of november 2008
a strange one indeed
i watch the sheeple
consume out of want
not conscious enough
out of need
it's a master design
a marketing marvel
they get you where it counts
thin air produces money
which is anything but funny
as keeping up with the joneses mounts!

octobersketchscrapsorgy (soundskinkyiknow)


 'blocks of thought' ©2008 GregOakes.com

all of these years
before i was blinded
i translated
blocks of thought
whatever that means
to you my dear
take it or let it rot
it's far too heavy
for you to digest
so please don't
strain yourself
it's hard enough
for me to process
so WE are here
to help

anomalous trilogy

Green tea from China found to be contaminated with alarming levels of pesticides "...you should consider sourcing your green tea from somewhere other than China. Get it from an organic source, some place that doesn't spray it with pesticides. It's more expensive, of course, but it's also safer for your health."

BEASTS! Book 2 - Ogopogo

This was my submission for Fantagraphic's BEASTS! Book 2 (open call) . There was only room for one piece of art; unfortunately mine didn't make the cut, along with a couple hundred others. Fortunately not all hope was lost; someone had the idea to set up a gallery for those who suffered the same fate as I did. ;) Check it out... HOPEFUL BEASTS ! Please continue to enjoy my 'Ogopogo'!! ~go
