It is finally time for Vinyl Thoughts show 9! This year’s theme is Saturday Mornings. The only thing I think about when it comes to the term, “Saturday Mornings,” are Saturday Mornings & cartoons! Saturday mornings in the 1990s!

Saturday mornings for myself at a young age consisted of me running to the living room, turning on the television early in the morning. I would color, paint, and play with my toys while Saturday morning cartoons came on. Only the best of cartoon shows played on Saturdays. Back then there were no DVRs so you had to watch the shows when it came on or you missed it. Anything you needed to do outside ow watching cartoons happened during commercial breaks.

Enter a kid Dr. Apples: A 1/6th customizes Blythe doll, replaying my childhood. 1990s era, he is planted to the television. His room has been handcrafted with all the nostalgic things that made the 90s so great. There are too many to pick out.  He has everything he needs to enjoy his day -or until the cartoons are over then it’s time to play the Super Nintendo. What a spoiled brat! Enjoy this moment kid Dr. Apples. Pour yourself as much AppleJacks as you desire. Being a kid in this era was a joy.

About the artist: Welcome to the wonderful world of Dr. Apples! His assistant is Apples (the artist). She does his busy work. Apples has been a professional artist for over 10 years in various mixed media forms. In 2018, she created the Dr. Apples franchise to bring awareness to the African American Underground culture.


This piece will be featured in the Vinyl Thoughts art show 9: Saturday Mornings, for ONE night, at Printed Threads,  200 South Fwy, Fort Worth, TX 76104 – Saturday, September 18, 2021 AT 7 PM EDT – 11 PM EDT. FREE ADMISSIONS!  When you stop by, tell them Dr. Apples sent you. And don’t forget to tell them what your fav Saturday morning cartoon was.

Jcorp x 1xRun x LISA Project - 2021 Pride print project to benefit LISA & True Colors United ! ! !

Commemorating 52 years since the Stonewall rebellion, I'm joining a lineup of leading artists curated by @lisaprojectnyc to celebrate PRIDE all year round. Based on my mural, "Don't Be Afraid of The World Where We Meet" is a signed & numbered screen print about Utena & Anthy from "Revolutionary Girl Utena". 
Click the link here to purchase:
The works will go live on Thursday (tomorrow), August 26 at 12pm EDT

"I'm so proud and beyond grateful to be part of NYC Pride x LISA Project's World Pride Murals at Welling Court Mural Projects 2019 — it’s such an honor to have a chance to celebrate how far we’ve come together through 50 years since Stonewall, as well as engage in important conversations that will continue to propel us forward. "
"I’ve decided to dedicate this mural to a seminal historical work in Queer anime: Revolutionary Girl Utena. Released in 1997, this series explores complex themes that were hugely ahead of its time: non-binary gender identification, challenging normative understanding of sexual orientations, surviving domestic violence, and empowerment through growth and acceptance. The love story of Utena and Anthy was a hugely influential part of my childhood, and I hope it can continue to inspire moments of growth for all of us!"

“Re-Logic has been an amazing partner for this line of figures, providing an incredible level of detail and feedback at every step of the process to ensure these characters are 100% true to the game,” said Skyland Arts CEO Wes Harris. “We’re big gamers at Skyland Arts and this has been a dream project to bring to fruition! I can’t wait to see these high quality figures showing up on coffee tables, desks, and in Zoom backgrounds.”

The Terraria Wave 1A figures are in production and available for pre-order now. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched today to collect these pre-orders at $20 per figure or $60 for a 3-pack. A limited quantity of Early Bird 3-packs is currently available for $55. Pre-ordering through Kickstarter is the only way to guarantee delivery of these figures. 

Terraria Wave 1A Figures are expected to ship worldwide to pre-order customers by the end of November.

However, one of them, Xólotl, Quetzalcóatl's twin brother, refused to take part in the ritual and decided to flee. To hide from Ehécatl, the wind god in charge of the sacrifice, he used his abilities as a nahualli to hide among cornfields and magueys, but he was discovered each time. Finally, he took his last form in the lakes as an axolotl, where he was captured and killed as a tribute to humanity.

The day has come for Axolotl, the water monster that embodies the god, to wake up and claim the offering for his sacrifice along with the other Latin American Kaijus.
