Summary: Illustration shows Mars dressed as Santa Claus about to depart after placing warships and other military weapons in Christmas stockings hanging over a fire labeled “War Budgets” fueled by “Bullion” and banknotes. The stockings have symbols of European countries and there are mugs and plates on the mantle of the fireplace showing the countenances of Uncle Sam and various European rulers.

I will be uploading 1 new illustration from Puck Magazine (1871-1918) everyday for 2012. The point is to provide a daily flash from the past. There really isn’t much different these days from the 100 years since Puck Magazine was around.

When lies are sold from the light
An artist will be born in the night

In a world so heartless
I chose to be an artist
In a world loving blind
Addicted to the faultline

It’s time to break past the fear
It’s time to see for once more clear

Worldviews
What will you choose
Worldviews
Win or lose

Wise as serpents
The innocent doves
Religious dependance
Born in !BLOOD!

Worldviews
What will you choose
Worldviews
Win or lose

From ascending moments woven so clear
To dark and deep thoughts riddled to hear

It’s time to break past the fear
It’s time to see for once more clear
In a world so heartless
I chose to be an artist
