this month’s tb tribute is courtesy of tessa kuragi – cosplaying my “drugs” painting from “girls war” during a recent trip to japan – photo is by kei kitamura
remember vhs, anyone – i dug out this video but no longer have a vcr to play it – chemical histery hour : m6 video works vol.03 – made in 2000 – i turned the mcdonalds logo upside down when it was printed in “my alphabet”
she always spoils me with the bestest little presents at my exhibitions (girls war / alice) – now here is the kute’n'sexy akaneko as lil miss sticky kiss warming my cockles (…oh er, i wonder how that translates into japanese? – i love it, akaneko, thank you!!)
I’ve been a big fan of your work for many years! So I really hope you enjoy these three homages I did of three of my favorite of your works brighten your day ^_^!
well, this did indeed brighten my day, especially as it’s been a fair while since the last “tb tribute”

i’ve tagged this “tribute” but in fact the images made independently of each other – my painting “i-nazi” below produced for the homage to another exhibition last year (as well as for “girls war” of course) – and the above is risa in her halloween attire from last year – risa is a model principally connected with katie the store, a sweet lolita fashion brand – the above photos are in fact atypical of her innocent soft focus (world-apart-from-trevor-brown) world – but apparently she’s been following my work for some time – and this week has been posting a number of “girls war” images on her instagram – including “i-nazi” which elicited comments pointing out the resemblance to her (a slight insult? – risa is far prettier!) – this painting actually her favorite she wrote on her blog today
