Artist's Description

“There must be some kinda way outta here,”
said the joker to the thief
“Too much confusion!
I can’t get no relief!”

Inspired by the song, All Along the Watchtower

My illustration here is something of a spoof. Not entirely, though… the Hour IS getting late. Thus the out-sized figure with the Earth in his hand. Megiddo is the ancient site from which the term Armageddon comes. Sure. 2012 has come and gone, but watch enough tv these days and you could surely lose your grip. What will it be?? Comet? Asteroid? It’s like a lottery! How many “flavors of disaster” can we take?

Maybe Yellowstone will go.
Maybe Krakatoa (again)! Or … let’s see…

Mega tsunami’s
Mega quakes
Mega solar flares
Release of methane from the sea floor
Pole shift!
Planet X (When Worlds Collide)
Rogue Black Hole (there’s a scary one, couldn’t even see it coming)
Rogue planet!
Gamma Ray Burst (zap! and adios)
Quantum Meltdown (“gray goop” destroys the Universe)
and that doesn’t even cover the old familiar stand-by’s (nuclear annihilation, killer viruses and oh yes, the most immediate of all, global climate change, possibly an Instant Ice Age)
Or … All of the Above?

Pick Your Card!

Hopefully, you realize I’m not poking fun at serious problems! There are some matters where we, as humans, have some control. There are others where we don’t. In the latter case, there’s not much sense in sitting up at night worrying about a rogue black hole colliding with the Earth or a nearby super-nova going off! Could be a good idea though, to stay away from those Disaster Shows….

To quote another song, “If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane!”

Closer View – The Joker (Pick Your Card!)
His is Gamma Ray Burst; the fortune teller drew the volcano card, possibly Yellowstone…
