I may have to take this down but here for now is a sequence of 3 images pertaining to my interest in the artist Kara Maria.
I ran into her the other day, in SF, and was able to get her to turn a relatively valueless 1964 Topps baseball card (#336, *ndre R*dgers, Chica go Cubs, SS from Nassau Bahamas pajamas) into a work of art : she made four little marks, an ideogram for “paw” but in our little world or moment a fake insignia for the “Cubs”.
(But I believe I said I would keep it for personal use — as a coaster or to turn my bike into a fake motorcycle — and would not sell it online or even publish it…)
The second one is 1975 of the Astros’ Howard. I drew on black glasses and a picture on his right sleeve of his heart but shaped like my a**hole.
The third one is a randomly generated image found in cyber space of a human eye. I added the squiggly line.
“Digir-digir” besides being a typographical error of the word we use for fingering our 1’s and 0’s (O’s???), is an ancient Sumerian cunieform for “God” or “Sky” or sometimes “a**”.
(Compared to “#@*^” read “pound at star pointy thingy” which is Mort Walker Beetle Bailey grawlix materi*l — it’s weird to think that spelled that way it’s Oedipal).
So in this context “Digir” could be read “Dig her”.
”Dig them”, rather: Kathryn Kain / Kara Maria collaboration coming soon:
And1: the word “digir” is sometimes spilled “dingir” which reminds me of the word “dinger” which is baseball jargon for “home run”. The symbol looks like three little trumpets intersecting.
andand: makes me think of Frank Lobdell
