i stumbled across the above dev subsmission
a while back
hand painted this stating it was
"copied from a lovely Orion magazine cover"
i stared at the image, stunned in amazement and compassion.
i purchased a version this very same image
in greeting card form
more? than 20 years ago.
i have carried it around with me as inspiration
not only for artistic purpose
but for all out
i used to pin or tape the card above my many desks
[ which would normally be in my closets in the
various apartments or boarding houses i have been blessed to live in
for it is always good to have a roof over one's head even if it was a
leaky one, per se ]
then later when "computers" "happened" "for me"
--- meaning "they were within the price range for
"an artist such as myself to 'own' and be able to be
able to pay rent on an apartment etc and so forth…"
i have kept the greeting card near or around
my garranimal gangly alien boxx PC - --
now it has been a [m a c] [for the alien boxx finally fell asleep ]
[moment of silence .. ok
for information on the original artist
as noted on the back of the card which i still have which still
looks like it was just purchased -
original artist is bob sacha - photographer.
"Comet Kid" palm press inc 1989.
[contemporary american photographers]
1442A walnut st. #120 berkley ca. 94709
i dont know if i am allowed to scan the card into this journal entry or not-
which i so want to do -
to express how wild it was to find :devweavandrust: 's tribute
to the artist's vision
a vision i see being replicated today - in every genre and every trend
[this was probably already happening - of course it was ]
so here is to the Tribute and here is to the Original Artist.
raise the glass
for the fullness of time.
what a wonderful
