I really like Mr. Mouse. Mr. Mouse and Mr. Crumb are 2 of my very favorites. I am an artist too, but spend so much time doing music, my girlfriend, working (photographer currently 48 hours per week). I would like to move in the Mouse direction, its all supreem stuff. I seem lots of influence (I cant recall the name of a Modern Artist from at least 80 years back, in many Art books, who does abstract, dinosaur type things, the name Max comes to mind? (but not Peter Max, whom I also like lots). I like the Zap type eyeball. I used to know this artis in the Yuba City/Marysville area who had a paiting with eyeballs, floating in mid air, and a hand touching one, which breaks, entitled "look but don't touch". I forgot his name. And I used to know Kris Karlson (I think she did your dancing turtles?, she made one for me, but insisted that she had to keep it when we parted, and I understood, but I liked it, wish I had it, but I understand, I cant part with my stuff http://archure.net/pecuous/art.html and I need to do more, to develop, except I am so busy, but I do lots of graphics to go with my music at my www.archure.net Just not enough hours, and I just might get some sleep tonight. And I saw this lady's profile here at dead.net, which links to her page (dont have the link handy, its in my mail) and she has this great Rat Dog poster for Oct of this year, just very psychadellic, and glad that people are not only still doing things like this, but to the extent of the poster, very very nice (don't know if it was Mouse). Anyway, MOUSE is one of my favorite artists, along with R Crumb, Renior, and Paul Klee, so that says alot of respect right there, and well deserved, job well done. Conisider me a MOUSE FAN. bigtime.

The artist I was thinking of in the note above (sorry about the typos, but you can figure it out, sorry) was ARTIST "ERNST" or something like that (I think). Max Ernst? But the main thing is MOUSE is up there with the very very best, not only in this time, but compared with the great artists of all time. Really like it, Inspires me, wish I had more time. Work Work Work, Music Music Music, Photos Photos Photos, Girlfriend Girlfriend, and I strated a painting of an Octopus a couple of years ago when I moved in here, it sits on the easle, and I have to get to work on it. (My grandfather, born with Uranus conjunct Saturn, and a top electrical engineer for Paramount, thought I should be an Artist with Saturn conjunct Neptune, and it makes more sense, as you don't have to rely on others like you do with musicians in a band. I do my music at www.archure.net but I am not in a band, cant be a one man band (or can I). But I do love (and do lots of graphics of) LOGO's and INSIGNIAS, and MOUSE does great ones, like the eyeball with Garcia logo, like it. Big FAN.
