John Orth (3 of 6)

The last time I was in New York I made 20 small paintings of Holopaw icons. These icons have shown up in various places on our website (see downloads page) and were recently gathered together as a t-shirt design for our last tour. I copied the paintings and cut out the icons intending to collage them together as part of this project. In the end, I used the negative space left behind and not the icons themselves. I collaged into the empty space images from a vintage pamphlet called Good Head I bought in the Tenderloin years ago at The Magazine. The zine is printed in red ink on matte paper. The images inside are various shades of washed out pink. Beautiful.
