actually, this image has a history that goes back a bit further than you describe. do a little checking around.
also, victor: how do you know that it's a woman? it could easily be a man (with long hair - like some dorky metal dude, ya know?)
holy crap! this is a woman! I always thought it was a picture of the top of a two toned Guinea Pigs head. Her ears would be where the eyes would have been. This makes more sense.
I need to have my perscription to my glasses updated.
actually, this was another full-color piece that the client dropped the ball on the printing. there were several at the time. pretty disappointing. my first foray back into color gigposter work and the client does a disappearing act. it was a bit of a mess.
i was goinf through a drawer looking for something and found all of these old posters. so i threw in a few recent b&w things and posted them all up. i have even more, but for some reason i can't post them on the site. i can't figure out why.
these posters range from my very first professionally commissioned poster (that valdy poster from 1975) up to my most recent poster (the charles peterson book release show which is currently stapled to telephone poles in seattle as we speak).
