… a flash of col­ors, pat­terns, ghosts, heads, sto­ries, polit­i­cal slo­gans, songs, poet­ry, lyrics and your own imag­i­na­tion … ride on.

This draw­ing is relat­ed to a song by the Doors ‘Horse Lat­i­tude’ and an idea about an anti-atom­ic ener­gy hap­pen­ing — Fuck For Atom­ic Ener­gy Show.

DILU­VI­UM KAFKA.

This black and white ver­sion is a dig­i­tal revi­sion with par­tial tone rever­sal, a very excit­ing thing. The pic­ture is rein­ter­pret­ed, the focus shifts in the pic­ture. The work is avail­able as a pig­ment print.

… noth­ing in this draw­ing is specif­i­cal­ly relat­ed to the Moth­ers of Inven­tion. This land­scape for­mat is a pure image inven­tion inspired by musics.

The Retreat Diaries by William S. Bur­roughs. — Once I found an audio ver­sion of the diaries in the pub­lic library. I made this draw­ing as a tribute.
