I will #NeverForget the #911Anniversary partially because the news repeatedly showed the plane crashing into south tower on average every seven minutes.

Nothing says “Baller” like buttons made from real US currency. Inspired by the Ramones Eagle. https://www.etsy.com/listing/201538556/money-buttons
When I’m not making Barcode Art or protesting Walmart, I’m trying to get two innocent men out of prison. David Rice and Edward Poindexter were wrongfully convicted of killing an Omaha police officer in 1970. Amnesty International said, “They were sentenced for a crime they didn’t commit because of their radical political beliefs.” Rice and Poindexter are currently serving their 44th year behind bars at the Nebraska State Penitentiary in Lincoln, NE. The growing movement of people trying free them includes the actor Danny Glover, author Angela Davis, and Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark. I just finished editing a short video about Rae Ann Schmitz who was with David Rice the night of the bombing and she testified as an alibi witness for the defense. I am really pleased with how the video came out. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehAVOFCNCCo
Toasting to barcodes at Modern Arts Midtown.
What products define you? What do you consume on a regular basis?
During the month of August, Scott Blake will be accepting commissions for custom barcode paintings. He is interested in painting the barcodes from your pantry. Each barcode is hand-painted, acrylic on canvas, 16 x 20 inches, signed and dated by the artist. $600 per painting. Please contact Larry Roots at Modern Arts Midtown with any inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be exhibiting my 32 barcode paintings from the foods I eat at Modern Arts Midtown in Omaha. I created this information packet to go along with my work. http://www.BarcodeArt.com/Scott_Blake_32_Barcode_Paintings.pdf

My Barcode “OMAHA” Painting went with friend Justin Kemerling at The UNION’s Swap + Shop. Thanks Brigitte.
I use letters instead of numbers to encode the words: PAINTING, BLACK, WHITE, ORIGINAL, WARHOL, ARTWORK, BUDDHA, ALLAH, JESUS, CONSUMER, SELL OUT, SATAN. Every painting is made to order using top of the line archival materials. Each painting measures 12 x 9 inches. In addition to my signature and date on the back, every painting is numbered and registered owners are listed on my website. http://www.BarcodeArt.com/Barcode_Painting.html
