Senior show postcards

So the senior show coming up in a few weeks requires individual postcards from both deb and i, so we knew ours had to somewhat go along because our thesis is together. so the main guideline was:

we were both going to have red rhinestone studded barb wires pouring out of our eyes into each other.

so we took some black and white pictures, went to the art store and got some supplies, each did our own thing in our own rooms (albeit a peek every now and then), and here's what happened...

I was listening to the mammatus record outside, doodling, scanning and photoshopping. then this one song came on and i wasn't quite fully aware since i was deep in work. at this point, i was fiddling around with the brain guts and hand reaching out part of the card and then i realized the music was just totally in sync with what i was doing and feeding me all these feelings! low heavy bass notes, slow pounding drums and a heart-wrenching roar and ughhhhhh, i am listening to the same song as i am writing this and i think i just wanna toss myself into the sea and mush into foam!

i looked back on my card just now after it was done and was telling deb how i got this whole weird human/deep sea fish creature prowling the ocean and sending out her evil fish minions vibe from it even though i did not consciously set out to make it that way.

and which brings me back to the name of the song i was/am listening to (i just repeated the song again).

"The Coast Explodes"


p.s. deb was blasting motorhead.
