There are some peculiar finds at Second Saturday. The series, Original Prison Art was one of them. The only thing these inmates are guilty of is bad taste!


Seriously, though, the artwork was a little disturbing. Lots of snakes, skulls, and tattoos. The Thomas Kinkade of the street!

One prisoner drew female portraits. Exclusively. Charcoal sketches of women were all he submitted for the show. And, I'm not making this up, each woman seemed a bit surprised.

He's in prison, so I couldn't help wondering if this was the look on women's face just before he killed them. I would look surprised too if someone were about to off me.
