“You are not a child anymore.”

“That dancing is very sexual.”

“The nude color of your outfit is suggestive of unclothed flesh and that is why it is provocative.”

“You’ve come a long way from Hannah Montana.”

“You sure have reached the age of consent.”

“Bet you’ve had sex before.” 

“Your plan to provoke the nation’s moms into texting up a shitstorm has succeeded admirably.”

“You must listen to hip hop and/or rap.”

“You’re very experimental and cool and we are all just trying to keep up with you.”

“You have a vagina. There it is.”

Miley, whatever it is, we’ll say it! Just let us know!

It’s #sundog! On Sundays we celebrate the joy of adoption with our Happy Beginning series.
Here’s a new family whose adopt-a-versary we’re already looking forward to! Abigail “Abby” Adams survived a North Carolina euth list before spending 8 months in foster down south with no interest. No good reason - she’s a very nice dog and INCREDIBLY cute! Well, she moved to New York yesterday and became a permanent resident! Abby’s new parents had started looking to adopt a Badass months ago and just fell in love when they met Abby at our event. Yet another example of time working its way toward the most Badass match! Abigail is now known and loved as “Josie.”  Congratulations to the whole family!

"A Rebirth for all the Society of the Royal Hotcakes" Schwartz 2012
I was a boy scout as a kid and every year there was this camping trip which was shrouded in secrecy called the S.R.H. (Society of the Royal Hotcakes.) Anyone who went on this trip was sworn to secrecy. It was filled with bizarre initation rituals with older scouts  but the end of the weekend is what I’ve never been able to block out. The scout leader, a man in his 60’s, would sit and each newbie scout would put his head between his legs, their head being held firmly by the scout leader, while an eagle scout would come running from quite a distance and give the newbie scout a big ol’ spank. This was weird enough but then the newbie’s head would be pushed further into the (heterosexual and married) scout leader’s crotch. This drawing was inspired by these events. I re-imagined this event as the newbie scouts, myself in multiple self portraits, as adult robots, turning the tables and being in control of the bodies of giants.(The idealized older boys and the scout leader).
