I think I’ll take a break from posting pictures of Lemmy Kilmister for a minute to show you something equally metal from former graffiti artist Stephen Powers. “You Have a New Message” is a part of Powers’ latest show, “A Word is Worth A Thousand Pictures“, open now at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York through September 29, 2012.
*Holiday Programming Note: Just a quick note to let you all know that my annual trip to the east coast kicks off on Sunday, so posts will be slower than usual. I’ll also be hitting Atlanta for a few days and will be running the Peachtree Roadrace 10K on July 4th. Weather reports are saying that it’s going to hit 106* today, and tomorrow in Atlanta, so your “please don’t die Cherrybomb” wishes, are welcome. Because, I really don’t wanna die, but if I’m not back again this time tomorrow, carry on, carry on. Because only metal matters. Have a happy and safe 4th!
