Here's progressive broadcaster and author Thom Hartmann with one of his recent Geeky Science segments:

And here's a Yellow-eyed surgeonfish floating in from Western Australia to watch Thom's video!

Return of the Western Blue Devil!

April 27, 2020: It's the Western Blue Devil swimming into Dreamyfish Art again!

Pencil portrait: Western Blue Devil, Paraplesiops sinclairi (Hutchins 1987) from the environs of Western Australia's southwestern waters and depicted here within his (her?!) favorite 'dream scenario' by Jude Cowell, an artful blend of Saturn (realism) + Neptune (visionary) which I count as a symbolic nod to my Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces personality combination!

So nod your noggin, dear reader, if you know what I mean!!

And as always, you're cordially invited to visit Jude Cowell Astrology if and as you wish!


New! Portrait of a Northwest Anemone Fish

Well, it took a while but here's my completed Portrait of a rather charming Northwest Anemonefish, an Amphiprium rubrocinctus!

Also known as an Australian Anemonefish or Clownfish, this little fellow hangs around in the Indian Ocean and is localized to the Northern Territories and Western Australia where he enjoys yummy meals of algae and planktonic crustaceans whenever he gets a chance.

Image: Portrait of a Northwest Anemonefish; colored pencil on black paper; original photo by Richardson; imaginary dream surroundings added by yours truly because Dreamyfish Art is a Saturn (realism; botanical drawing) plus Neptune (art, visionary dream surroundings) = real + imaginary sort of thing. Most tropical fish exist in the darker realms of the sea so here we see them ensnared within their favorite dream scenarios, full of color and light!

Nope, the video mentioned in the title of this post is no longer available on YouTube because the owner's account has been removed. But here's a botanical fish portrait for you:

Naturally cuddlefish are the life of any party...and here's one suddenly appearing now:

And you can tell by his looks that Octopus vulgaris never misses a chance to party!

Coral Reefs Dying Off at an Alarming Rate: Climate Change 2017?

Here's a recent segment and interview from The Thom Hartmann Program concerning an alarming environmental catastrophe that's only getting worse:

Is This New? The Emerald Fish Investigate! by Jude Cowell

In real life, this drawing is hu-u-ge! Emerald Fish Investigate!; oil and watercolour pencil on black paper by yours truly Jude Cowell (c)1996--2020 and beyond; photo via a Samsung phone because the drawing won't fit a regular scanner bed at all even though images aren't as crisp as you and I would prefer. Yet I'm thinking a blurry phone snap creating an excerpt from my over sized drawings is about the only way that larger, long hidden illustrations will ever come out of their shells, yawning as they dare...

Wonderful You: You're in the Fish's Dream!

So if you may, consider this posting a tiny peep eye! to You from the emerald fishes who, admittedly, turn up quite often within my botanical fish portraits with their impossibly exotic backgrounds. Well, fish dream, too!


Perhaps it's mild synchronicity that today (Mar 2, 2017) such an investigation by the emerald fishes occurs at this moment here because in a related story about certain current events we discover that more research {is} needed into 'intrusive' seismic surveys: Western Australian fishing industry asserts. Or, perhaps the guilty parties should cease and desist causing harm to the environment making unnecessary their expensive studies (intended to delay action).

Those responsible should do what needs to be done or improve what needs improving. Like Obamacare. Improve it, don't kick millions of Americans to the curb without health insurance, you Washington blighters. Oops! Mea culpa! It's my indignation at in-breach-of-the-public-trust politicians who are nearly completely worthless as 'our' representatives. If Republicans and enabling Democrats proceed with their austerity measures, let's kick power elite freeloaders off taxpayer-funded health insurance programs for a year and see how they like it.

Astrological Neptune Erodes, Dissolves, and Veils

Intimidation, bribery, blackmail, pocket-lining, graft, fraud, insider trading, pay offs, favors, you name it. That's my former city of residence, the Virgoan-Scorpionic Washington DC. And though I miss the beauty of the place, to me its citywide Masonic architecture looks more and more mausoleum baby with each passing year while the Halls of Power grow dustier, draftier, and leakier by the Neptunian drop. Could the dripping sound We the People hear be pouring from our nation's 1776 Neptune in earthy Virgo?
