This was originally a poster I did for the Boston band Olde Men on Acid.  Now it’s the cover of their new album.  Sharpie, paint pen, and water color on paper.

I have an issue with non-functional, two-dimensional art.  It doesn’t DO anything.  It takes up space, it’s a pain in the ass to travel with, and you can’t really throw it out, even if it’s a painting of a weird lady with mirror glasses and a red beehive.  
Let’s call this piece what it is: a burden.  It’s like 50 pounds.  It’s paint, on a mirror, in a frame, screwed to a thick piece of wood that keeps it all straight.  It was supposed to travel from Boston to DC, but it ended up in Somerville, MA instead.  It is currently residing with some very, very good friends who love me enough to live with this thing in their house.
I have a lot of weird emotions wrapped up in this piece, which makes me really wish it was a sharpie drawing on foamcore, because someone is gonna have to be stuck with it, and it is REALLY heavy.  I can’t throw it out.
Acrylic and spray paint on mirror and a lot of other impractical materials. 3.5’ x 2’.
Much love and thanks to Michelle and Meghan for living with this thing, giving it a thumbs up, and sending me a photo.
