Many of my readers have urged me to take on Kanye West, but I'm busy prepping for an upcoming art show opening in 2 weeks and as much as I'd like to sink my fangs into Kanye, I don't have the time. It's okay, plenty of other people are addressing him, including President Obama! Such a convenient bread and circuses distraction, but I digress. Here's a Kanye West illustration for a t-shirt sent to me by a reader this morning. He goes by the name of ogfx and enjoys finding inspiration lurking in the pages of Dlisted. Thanks ogfx!
A local shaman who does not want to be named claimed he had visions of Baby Snatchers during an iboga-fueled vision quest ceremony several years ago. "I saw a gap-toothed monster, with great shining eyes and hair of gold. It's arms were outstretched, veins protruding like the branches of a Baobab tree, with a curious yarn, colored scarlet like blood, tied around only one arm. I awoke with a gasp, grabbed the first piece of wood I found, and began carving the prophetic image Iboga gave to me!" Medium: ink and graphite on paper, digital color.
