This commission was requested via etsy by Helene V. of France, who asked me to draw something inspired by the phrase, “Enough to melt all the tigers in the world to butter,” from the H. Murakami novel, Norwegian Wood. I’ve never read the book, so I don’t know what it means, but I think the bewildering fog of “no context” is nice.
And in a classic “parading-laziness-as-resourcefulness” move, a Giclée print of this watercolor will be part of the “Year of the Tiger” show at GR2 in LA next month.
P.S.: pssssst hey rich people! Playful Extremities, the GRNY show I’m in, closes on Wednesday, and if yer at all inclined to own a “Hellen Jo” (it’s almost as prestigious as owning a black velvet clown painting), all of these watercolor drawings are available for sale here. TOSS YOUR MONEY MY WAY!
