Artist's description:

Pop art comes in many forms. I consider this one of them. You'll find here an ACTUAL painting of a, REAL, mugshot of Jim Morrison. Stopping off at the Pussycat at Go-Go on a trip to Las Vegas with writer Robert Grover, Jim Morrison decided to smoke a cigarette like a joint and one of the security guards at the club wasn't having any of it. Morrison reportedly told the guard, Why not jump up my ass? And was met with a billy club to the head. The pair was arrested for public drunkenness and disturbing the peace. Morrison wasn't finished, however, taunting the cops in the parking lot of the club and at the police station. The pair were strip-searched, doused with a boric acid powder and thrown into a cell. Morrison continued to yell profanities at the cops until one of the officers said that he would see Morrison in private when he clocked out. Fortunately, Grover's girlfriend was able to post bail for the duo before that meeting took place.
