I made these posters for a show at the Fillmore in San Francisco, for La Roux. Needless to say- the combination of mind warp to psychiadelia totally threw them over the edge and we went in a more 'safe' direction instead. I hate when that happends. Loose your fucking mind maaaaaan!!!!
I'm approaching my third month of modern gypsy vagabond hobo living and sleeping in your bathtub, and I've experimented with many varieties of canned beans and ways of tying my bandana around the end of this stick so that I can carry as many pairs of shoes as possible. One thing that hobo's are really good it is growing 5 o'clock shadows- in addition to making miniature baroque furniature sets out of gum wrappers and bottle caps and thinking really efficiently with the resources avaliable. I've been drawing a lot, utilizing all of my belongings and I've become really good at organizing and even better at snacking. After this is all over, trust that my infiniate vision quest will have blasted me straight into the unknown and allowed me to produce some new work, maybe its all the weed chocolates i've been eating... maybe its the alignment of the stars, but I know it has a lot to do with you.
In Western cultures a death mask is a wax or plaster cast made of a person’s face following death. Death masks may be mementos of the dead, or be used for creation of portraits. It is sometimes possible to identify portraits that have been painted from death masks, because of the characteristic slight distortions of the features caused by the weight of the plaster during the making of the mold. In other cultures a death mask may be a clay or other artifact placed on the face of the deceased before burial rites. The best known of these are the masks used by ancient Egyptians as part of the mummification process, such as Tutankhamon’s burial mask.
