This piece was commissioned by a 2007 Portland, OR psychedelic band titled Organic Acid. As I listened to their only CD release I created the imagery to the sounds and rhythm of the music . Every few hours of drawing I would email the band members and discuss what was drawn and where to go next. The "Melting Man" image came from this personal connection with each member.
If you concentrate on the 'black' heavens portion of the piece you will notice it is in the shape of a Mushroom, thus defining the piece as an Organic Acid. This mushroom image was seen by a band member 2 weeks after I submitted the work for printing on the CD cover. Guess the psychedelic aspects of the music caused the definition of subliminal imagery to directly relate to what I was creating. Groooovy eh!!? By the way I was not using mushrooms in the making of this piece. :)
Hours of drawing are invested in each of my works so an ORIGINAL FRAMED 20" x 20"pen and ink drawing from my Gateways collection is an investment, not just an art purchase from Ron Jones.
