Another favorite from the way-back machine. I loved finding this stuff in the street. It reinforced what I had been suggesting as a way to create without the framework of the gallery system and the accompanying bullshit, which was my original intention for the Trading Cards. They were cheap enough to leave behind anonymously in the street.
Of course, now that you are so fancy I expect to see a gigantic portrait of your mug, unsmiling, on the side of a building in the style of Mao or Joseph Stalin, which won't be without its own charms.

Zoe -I really love this. I don't recall seeing it before.
Very, very good.
