Buzz blue sky, man with hair on chin, girl laughs, indoor drainpipe, outdoor drainpipe, outdoor drainpipe again. The giant door is slowly closing, I trapped a pencil in bad area. What is it Chewy? Dog wind ride, dog wind ride again, 100 MPH! The giant door is slowly closing. Dusting ceiling, cold water flow, tree trap, shot gun blast - 200 points. Two men staring, its a drive through the snow, moody man I can see you in the mirror. Cold hands, dog statue. The giant door is slowly closing. Not yet. Winker, creepy house, blackbird. Drive 1, drive 2, sad man on a train. Tiny woman in a normal sized room, lizard man, peace sign, water fall, food puke, giant white moth, blasting stones 1 2 & 3, vacant dog, bed dancing. The giant door is slowing closing. Thumbs up, it hurt, monkey tail, very clever, Robocop, The giant door is slowing closing. Backwards dip, boy in passing, happy dog, sad dog. The giant door is closed, eyes are big, is it?

Inside we have several pages of monoprints, illustrating the short story Larry's Warren by M I C H A E L  C R O W E. Here is a description of our process for the drawings >

Mike and Faye separately selected three Matisse's each. Faye sat in another room and described the paintings through a wall. Mike drew what he heard. This process happened 3 times. Then mike sat in another room and described his Matisse's to Faye. Faye drew what she heard. Next stage, Mike described his drawings from Faye's descriptions to Faye through a wall and vice versa. This stage happened 3 times each, ending in 12 drawings; 6 replicas of Matisse, 3 replicas of Faye's and 3 replicas of Mike's.

Also see cover for our bubble men drawings.

Trip down the stairs, flowers in your face man. Totally U> F> O> Hole in one, giant moth, lightening strike, shooting star. TV shark attack. The volcano erupts. Two headed snake, one eye green, one eye blue. The planets are aligned tonight. Meet the alien under the beige eclipse. Lucky clovers! It's raining frogs! The light bends. Power Moon.
