In May of 2015 Canadian conservative politician Peter McKay thought he was clever when he referred to the newly NDP-led Alberta as "Albertastan," and here I am thinking I'm clever by taking the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic's crest (used 1937-1992) and editing it a little. The original was made by Soviet graphic artist Ruben Arkadevich, and included sun, oil rig, wheat, cotton, and slogans. I tripled the number of oil rigs, replaced the cotton with wild roses, and made sure "get 'er done" figured prominently. Alberta, I may not live in you any more, but you're still one of my muses. Printed in an open edition, signed and dated on reverse.
