To the Friends of Giraffe:

Tomorrow is the Day of Fools, although that seems to be an everyday event in Washington these days. Our April issue celebrates the body human rather than the body politic, with some glorious results.

Our cover image is titled "Rockets in the Shady Field". Go figure.


Be sure to mark Saturday April 6 at 7:30 pm when E4TT (Ensemble For These Times) presents the Film Noir multi-media event at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. The performance is sold out but it will be streamed with audio and video here: Whitaker's digital paintings will be featured.

Our new feature, "!Brazen Hussy", should tickle your feathers and challenge your taboos. Carolee Schneemann takes a bold approach to the vagina. Jeannine Redon startles her husband with a birthday painting. And Ruth Waters sculpts the male crown Jewels unflinchingly.


Our electronic quill article this month is titled "Once Upon a Kaching". Call it a consumer's manifesto. It is time the elephants and the donkeys gave way to the Lions of the Checkbook. That's you and me, folks.


Our section called "Other Voices" includes eMusings, yNot, Site of the Month, !Brazen Hussy, and Just Desserts.


eMusings: a triumph of wall coverings in Munich; a Chinese artist confronts the ancient and the contemporary; a new US embassy opens in London; 3 cheers for the mighty spiral; Q challenges Siri and Alexa; exquisite jewelry design in Sedona; crawling on your stomach to unearth Mayan artifacts; image into music for the sounds of the cosmos; two artists mangle and manipulate the body; Sydney's Mardi Gras parade; meet someone who does not exist; and a young Chinese photographer spreads her wings.


Y NOT: Our Woman of the Month award for April goes to Anthea Hamilton, champion of the buttocks.


Don't forget that our outstanding women are permanently archived on their own page.


Continuing in YNot: She is 108 and going strong; women get a boost in India; tech entrepreneurs shun women; successful women discuss the glass ceiling; job opportunities in women-led architecture firms; the lack of women in oil and gas; rape in the military; wage gaps for older women; the Pink Lady becomes a Hall of Famer; our brazen hussy films "Meat Joy"; the Boulanger Initiative supports female composers; FDA warnings about mastectomies and cancer surgery; Saudi Arabia threatens women's rights activists; an Oscar first for a black film costume designer; the first female Chief Ranger in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.


Giraffe's Site of the Month: 2 brilliant artists tackle the human body: Louise Bonnet through the medium of cartoons; and Tasila do Amaral brings Brazil into the 21st century.


New Digital Paintings: We confront old norms, from Rape Kit to Polliwogs and Jiggle Me Up, all designed to start you thinking.


We have also added two 2018 series on the New Series page, "Jigglefeathers" and "Crickblister".


New Blobs: we continue our exploration of the Newanderthals and get honored with a cover on the Women's Caucus for Art web site.


Digital Giraffe writes: "Broken Melodies" listens to the sound of any child/every child as the bully culture spreads worldwide, and the Statue of Tragedy weeps.


Pixabay offers free 3D images and data; new materials respond to environmental changes; 3D printed vegan sushi; muti-shaped lithium-ion batteries; the world's first 3D printed middle ear transplant; a dental chair-side printer; a 3D bioprinting company is the first in its industry to list on the Australian Securities Exchange; a Japanese company produces a high-precision color 3D printer; the U.S. Army uses an AirForce alloy to make a super strong metal; the PaperPulpPrinter reuses old plastics.


Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 6, when Ensemble for These Times presents the FilmNoir Project at 7:30 pm in San Francisco. Included will be Whitaker's images from the "Jiggle Feathers" series.


93 nations visited us in March, including a first-time visit from the nation of Guinea. had a maximum of 5270 hits per hour and 16,633 hits per day. 5,089 pages were accessed every day.


Did you know that we have won an Academic Excellence Award?

As April peeks over the horizon we wish you tulips and trailheads. Should you be fortunate enough to visit Sedona, AZ, be sure to stay at the Adobe Grand Villas and marvel at Chef Michael's superb talents.

With warm regards from your friend The Giraffe.
