I dunno if this if for REAL or For WHAT, or WHY or HOW?!


Nicely executed and CUTE and Im HONORED , But that nose is ICK and NOT MINE. Am I MEXICAN INDIAN? , or am I being played by Helena Bonham Carter??? I dunno...????? I like the idea a lot though, the work does lend its self to VELVET nicely, just work on that nose please, its the wrong shape, size , style, and the pencil mustache...ugh... being a muse is so hard!? Its interesting though to see this interpretation of the poster which itself is an interpretation and so on, if you said to another artist make a painting of this painting witout showing him ME or the original photo I bet I'd be full blown Mexican, totally bald, pencil goatee, and have a TOTALLY EGYPTIAN EYE, basically YULE BRENNER...
UPDATE:
Ok so i just looked up Indignico and its a VELVET PAINTING COMPANY IN TIJUANA?!?! Its REAL?! I cant believe it?! Who commissioned that?! Look at the other ones they did, they know what theyre doing, Im among the likes of REAGAN and JEAN BENET?!?!

It's a little Young Guns, I agree. But nobody had done me in velvet since the debutante ball of 1990, so be thankful. And I am not kidding. For real.

Nooo!!! Keep the nose and mustache!! I don't mean this as a disrespect to the artist but when you combine the cheesiness of velvet with that mustache and mexican features, it all equals GOLD.

Late 70s Garage Sale Realness!!

Dave you are well on your way to icon-hood! Perhaps it's time to start your very own cult.

Holly: I actually laughed out loud, that comment was a totally rue maclanahan moment!
Brandon: I think youre right
Herodotus: the fact that you ARE ALREADY IN MY CULT and dont know it proves youre REALLY IN IT?!

Herodotus said...

OMG! From Free Mason to Dave Mason!
You're right!

Trickle Down BS said...

It is said that imitation is the best form of flattery...if you are getting your likeness painted in velvet...well you have reached your status quo...in the same category as Elvis and Jesus...lol
That is so far out...lol

I just am more fascinated by which methods some Mexican queen found herself thumbing through Männer in order to get the reference?! And how do you tell your compadres.. oh, uh, yeah.. that piece? Oh it just came to me in my dreams.. shhhyeah right.

This is off-topic, but I thought David might find it interesting.

Check out the Finnish artist HK119 (Heidi Kilpeläinen):

The velvet handiwork is deeply disturbing.

Hang them in your Haunted House gym.
