Karaoke fever! #23

Made on a page of the 1793 book, Complettes Oeuvres De J. J. Rousseau, 3 5/8 x 5 7/8"

One of a series of 28 illustrations I did for this book project for Bill Roberts' Bottle of Smoke Press.

The first time I saw someone with their earlobes all stretched out who wasn't a native of New Guinea or someplace, I said to myself, "God damn! That is one crazy motherfucker! That's kind of cool. It's crazy, but damn!" Now every douchebag with an after school job has earlobes you could throw a basketball through and 25 holes in their face plugged with varying sizes of wood and metal. It's hard to be outrageous, I know. I was 14 once. It's hard to express your displeasure with societal norms and your hatred for the man and the system. But come on, think of a way. Think of something on your own. Make something up. Anything. Create something. Please. I'm begging you, you lemming generation of future republicans. Make something up. Invent something. I'll give you five dollars for each original thought you can muster. I worry about you.
