Well, just finished a long day at the office. Now I'm home, and just settled in for a nice, relaxing night of... more work! Crap! Oh well, just sat down at the computer w/ my Chinese take-out & figured I'd post something right-quick. Anyways, this image is the second in the "Buzzed" series for the "Stay Gold" show in January. I call this one..."Geekin' Out: The Midway Modern". Thought it would be kinda funny to incorperate the old world sideshow w/ the new. The handlebar mustache is a throwback to the oldie days. The rubber chicken I guess would be the modern day element. For those of you that don't know & as Merriam-Webster OnLine dictionary so eloquently puts it, a "geek" is... "a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken or snake" Hence the chicken. Also notice that our good friends the Carneys make a cameo. Hope you guys dig this one, it was a lot o' fun.
Book reccommendation: GEEK LOVE by Katherine Dunn... classic!
