Initially conceived from a trite community college art class homework assignment to create a drawing in the manner of conceptual art bozo Sol LeWitt; CAN'T TELL NO ONE WHAT TO DO compiles my 10 best attempts at art in the medium of written instruction. Illustrations accompany nearly all of the pieces as well.
The cover is a 4 color image screen printed on various high quality art paper (such as Arches or Rives BFK) and the pages measure 4.25" x 5.5". I know my faults. I can't get through telling someone what I ate for lunch in less than 45 minutes. I'm verbose, and my stories probably aren't as much grandiose as they are boring. With the relatively small size of this zine, the instructions contained within are presented with an effective economy of words so the focus is on the idea rather than languishing in my magniloquence.

Whether you accidentally drove your 1989 Chevrolet Celebrity through the roof of a house or you made the mistake of eating Subway for lunch, let's face it, you fucked up.
Nothing is certain. Sparta defeated Athens, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon split up, and The Undertaker's Wrestlemania winning streak is over. That's alright though, shit happens. That's what WHOOPS is all about, down to the covers that I printed over my own botched screen prints. 51 copies, signed and numbered.
