Jaywalker free magazine of the arts was published monthly in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and is still available online at all times right here! We hope to get some version of it going again. For now, it is an archival site only.


Check out our old publisher's new blog, The Metaphor Observatory, with plenty of examples of contemporary metaphor in the media.

But is it art?




The works of Jackson Pollock continue to challenge the definition of "art" among many. His trademark paint splashes and drips have been used as examples of both brilliance and recklessness among fans and critics, furthering the evidence that genius and insanity are frequent bunkmates.


The most common argument among his detractors is that "anyone can splash paint on a canvas - but that doesn't make it art". So we splashed together a couple of shots taken by some drip at Jaywalker who claims that there is beauty to be found in these two images of spilled soda. One image tells a clear tale of each step taken with swinging arms as soda becomes sewage; the other image depicts an impact, then streams of soda mixed variably with the water of melting ice - a beautiful range of tones. Neither image was staged.


Whether intended or accidental, a piece born of randomness may carry a meaning or be deemed beautiful, but is it art..?
