cursing like a sailor for the soul

Remember CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL and all its many sequels? I never looked at it, but I can guess it is filled with all kinds of homey, feel good sh!t. I wanna work on my own version, except it would involve explaining the therapeutic benefits of cursing, giving the finger, having your dog poo on your least favorite neighbor's lawn in the dark, eating chocolate for breakfast and watching CADDYSHACK and drinking beers and popcorn for dinner.
Sort of a PUNK version of the whole feel good thing, you know?

POTS! I have this huge list of orders, and on the back of the list I doodled this idea. I need a SPECIAL SPRING piece for a special exhibit coming up and lately, as you know, I have been putting slashes or channels or whatever into pieces, straight and angled, which look art nouveau-ish, but then I wondered if Mr Turtle would look good on a cup or pitcher with WAVY slashes and spirals? Hard to do. BUT, I have a new jade glaze going, and I think we have some interesting possibities here...
