art lasts longer than an expensive dinner

whether you plump for an original or a print, you'll also receive the story behind the image. most of these works were done as part of a project called art/history, so each relates to a specific date. i'm not suggesting that the subject matter isn't sometimes slightly tenuous, but there's always a link. feed your brain & feast your eyes.

art/history: i'm rather living vicariously through birthday boy, george. round the time this reference photo was taken, i was taking sartorial cues from #boy george (enormous straw hats, cropped trousers, ugly shoes & improbable amounts of colourful eye makeup that he pulled off much better than i did - or do) & i was still mightily enamoured of freddie mercury. i'll just pretend it is i there beside him. alas, no. george earned his place alongside mr mercury. by the time he was in his teens, boy was already honing the persona that would cause a sharp intake of collective breath by the music industry - much to the chagrin & anxiety of pious middle america. somehow, in spite of initial redneck prejudice against him, he won everyone round with his charm & his catchy melodies. lad could throw some shapes, too, back in the...since his days at the top of the pop charts, the karma chameleon has had his ups & downs. he perseveres. he persists. he's still making music. i salute george alan o'dowd, born #otd in 1961. meanwhile, i'd love to have eavesdropped on his & fred's confabulation. they look high as fook in this picture.
