So I photocopy transfered this bust into my moleskin months ago and never really knew quite what to do with it. This was my solution. The bust came from an old magazine ad for Marlboro cigarettes. I guess subconsciously, I was making a statement on cigarettes (circa 1980). To sum up what I mean, the bust and sun burst pattern represent cigarettes once being considered sexy or cool, glorified by the media in some way or another. But under that facade, lies a silent killer... yeah you guessed it the lasers and I guess the stache, because all staches are killer.
I am glad that the view on cigarettes has changed. Many more laws have been passed to ban smoking in public places. One of my biggest pet peaves is going to a public place and coming back reeking of cigs. And another would be getting stuck behind somebody that is walking extremely slow, but that's a completely different post.
In the end this post post is 1/2 reaction to a friend saying that my blog wasn't political/controversial enough and 1/2 just wanting to make something cool. Plus, lasers and mustachios are the perfect combo. Enjoi! And please feel free to post a comment. Comments are like white tigers to me. AMAZING!
EDIT: While searching for white tiger pictures I came across this image of a... odd looking white tiger.
