Nilges, “Chiaroscuro Study #2 for ‘Whether Peter’s Crazy Teacher Ka Yan Teaches Us Mathematics or Physical Education, She Admonishes Us, Teaching Us the Way of All Things'”, pen, pencil and Gimp modification for the green tone and white highlights, A4 Size 29 April 2012. Moral Rights asserted by the Artist.

Backstory: Peter’s Crazy Teacher was teaching us our Maths but was asked to teach a substitute class in Gym. So wow she shows up in her grubbies! Ai-Yah! The Principal was at his windows with binoculars and all the boys were like uuuunnngggggghhhhh! The Discipline Teacher approached her kindly at the end of the class and said that next time she has to wear full length sweat pants and a top!

We all did Jane Fonda and then we swam! Funnest gym class I have ever had! No competition for she seems to realize that competitions favor boys born in January and February, since they are the biggest!

We all love Ka Yan! Let’s make a Facebook page so she gets rehired!

Her black hair should frizz a bit for her Ancestors come from all over the world.

Her feet leave not the human stain
For the Dance reconciles the pain
And makes us whole again
In sunshine or in rain.

Peter’s Crazy Teacher #4: the Green Man Teaches Art in Prison

The Green Man Teaches Art in Prison

Men! Find the artist within, especially if you are under court supervision! It’s called sublimation and it is part of civilization. I know you think you are tough guys but where life is nasty brutish and short you won’t last a minute!

When drawing the naked female, behave yourself, and don’t worry about breasts. They are not circles, anyway, they are fatty triangles and just one more cancer risk made for feeding babies.

If you are one of those artists that gets the Line right the first time, knock yourself out: but most of us are like the British artist David Hockney. We can’t draw and must Find the Form using girlie swirly lines like my Mom did when she would draw us kids!

Art ain’t knowin’ how to draw! It’s your Daemon! It’s your Wound! Let it Bleed!

Edward G. Nilges, “Even When Peter’s Crazy Teacher Ka Yan Teaches Us Maths, She Admonishes Us As To the Way Of All Things”, pencil & ink on paper, A4 size, 20 April 2012. Moral rights asserted, so don’t get gay with me or you’ll regret it.

There are such subtle planes in her face and she tilts it so subtly.

Ka Yan #2: Peter’s Crazy Teacher

Edward G Nilges, “Even When Peter’s Crazy Teacher Ka Yan Teaches Us Mathematics, Ka Yan Admonishes Us, and Teaches Us the Way of All Things”, pencil on paper, A4 size, 18 April 2012. Moral rights asserted, which means that if you copy the image with attribution, God bless yer pointy little head, but if you copy it without attribution, damn your eyes. In other words, show some class.

The Line must be gotten right. The asymmetry has to be turned into a genuine tilt of her head in the light that would naturally create a different line on either side of her face as it catches the light, from what side? Vermeer, he knew all about this stuff, how in his quiet studio on a sunlit afternoon, time stopped.

Schopenhauer thought music superior to painting, damn his eyes, but painting’s task is the opposite of music’s. Music is all Time, painting stops it. Same deal, really.

My use of words is sometimes very confusing, as if I’m some sort of time traveler who uses them in old ways. Can’t be helped. “Admonish” used to mean something halfway between “teach” and “scold, morally chastise”.

The backstory is that Ka Yan works for the same UN agency as Peter’s Crazy Aunt and they are friends. The kids love her. I’m not sure what Ka Yan’s ethnicity is yet, and I may never be, for there are so many beautiful children and grown-ups where I live who are Mischling. Ka Yan’s name is Chinese yet she looks South Asian. Besides my understanding from talking with friends is that Ka Yan’s off the shoulder look is not as popular among Hindu women as it used to be and is certainly not Islamic.

Fashions have become more “modest”. Jackie Kennedy wore a Beirut look in 1961 in Beirut when she revealed her tummy. She could not do so today. But Ka Yan, while possessed of a deep respect for life, is not religious.

And it is this slowly growing crowd of people who are precisely ignored by racists, aren’t they, who want to herd us all back into Kraals, damn their eyes. All men (all people) are endowed by their Creator with rights according to our Declaration of Independence. This means something.

Mama Kanumba #2: I am the honored one and the scorned one

Edward G. Nilges, “State of Preparatory Drawing for ‘Mama Kanumba y Cucamonga del Lobby y Corridor Takes the Children to Power Station Beach’ as of 15 March 2012”, pencil and pen with computer modifications A4 size

For I am the first and the last.
I am the honored one and the scorned one.
I am the whore and the holy one.
I am the wife and the virgin.

Thunder Perfect Mind

The hands have of course to let go for if they touch the children’s heads it looks like she’s bowling. The open hand on the left works after many pentimenti the one on the right is still a crab claw, a Scissorshand.

Her hands must touch the children’s heads and not clutch them like bowling balls. She makes no excuse for being fit after popping off a couple of kids since chasing after children is hard work. My own experience as a father was that Hanoi Jane (Fonda’s) videos got me fit enough to chase after my kids.
