Fitting somewhere between his best (Blue Velvet, Mullholland Drive, the first year of Twin Peaks) and his worst (popularizing that buttoned-up, sans-necktie look), David Lynch (American filmmaker, painter, and former Mr. Isabella Rossellini) created this dark disturbing public service announcement for New York City. It's creepy and brilliant. And full of rats. There are six rats to every human being in the Big Apple, according to some estimates; some say more. Regardless, it's one of the greatest towns on earth and you should visit. Just clean up after yourself.
I have no idea what the heck is going on here, I was so high from the marker fumes, I just went with it. I ended up doing a second version (in fiddly pen-and-ink) for an art-zine being published out of Florida, but sometimes, ya just can't beat messy Sharpie n' marker freakouts.
I've had this image, torn from a magazine, for ever. I used to have it on my wall in high school. I can't remember what 'the scandal' was or who this intriguing hunk of a man is, only that I love this image so very much. Yogic floating? Anybody have any ideas?
