What more can I say? One fifth of the American people have spoken.
I don’t usually name names, so I won’t identify any of the other members who make up a clandestine cell of hedonists known as the NIMs, which stands for Nothing in Moderation or nihil moderate, NIMSTERS, Nimsticals, Nimrods, Nimphiles, and quite a few other clever monikers. Members of this profligate group of revelers, while not armed, should be considered dangerous, when it comes food and drink. I am a member of this group; there are others, and that’s all I’ll say.
Ideally, we meet in person at semi-annual, extravagant NIMfests; however, in recent years we’ve been forced to convene online. Our NIMfests usually have themes. Several years ago, for example, bacon was our theme; this year one of our themes was TV Shows.
My contribution to this year’s NIMfest is a series of four digital, iPad drawings all done in Procreate over the span of 10 hours on December 30, 2016.

With all this talk of “fake news” I recently shared on FB an old Paper 53 digital drawing depicting someone up to his ears in the green muck of misinformation in a jar labeled, “Propaganda.” A friend, who’s no stranger here at portfoliolongo.com, added a comment suggesting that we need a more truthful dissemination of information, and he employed a term I hadn’t ever seen, when he stated that maybe we could use more propagandhi. He subsequently assured me that he was not referring to the Canadian punk rock band. I knew what he was getting at, and I fully agreed; however, that didn’t stop me from putting one and one together in Procreate about how Gandhi might be propped up.
For the past few years we’ve put out our annual Christmas letter digitally, and this year it’s capital E. Click here to see small t and h. We like to keep’em short.
