straight teeth in your mouth are more important than the words that come out of it by 

Inspired by ‘Television, the Drug of the Nation’ by The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy

In fact I’ll make it an open invitation for anyone to create an image based on a line from that song, tag it ‘cathoderaynipple’ it’s a fucking plethora of good hearty stuff. I actually wanted this to be a silhouette of dear Paris, but being as bland as she is, I couldn’t source an iconic image that would have served as a suitable starting point.

    Yes, I’m working on teeth definition but I thought I’d throw up a work in progress. I don’t mean throw up as in, oh, well anyway.

    You did a great job making this faceless, abstract ink splotch look exactly like marylin! Instantly recognizable! :D You have a strong talent for sending real messages via your work, and it totally helps that you have a keen eye for design, also =)

    Clever Lucan Clever, very clever. I’m sure that ‘one night in Paris’ would have had an iconic picture for you – ha (said with a snort and an excremation mark that I couldn’t type because you would have been severely dissapointed) I wish I could have been this clever at school – might have avoided those scarring lunchtimes. Kids can be so cruel. Or in Marylin’s case, Presidents……..

    I am always amazed at how much can be communicated by a simple silouette. I’ll be googling the lyrics to that rather tasty track soon…

    I love that this looks like an old hand-cut silkscreen print (the lips remind me of Al Jolsen, mammie, how I love ya, how I love ya!)
