Alex Makes Art #73

Oh hey! I guess my new thing will be staying up on Thursday nights making art things since I usually don't have to wake up early on Fridays and I don't really have time otherwise. That's ok, I guess. This week I finally made a poster I've had in mind for a while, but couldn't quite get the composition layout right in my head. It honors the lovely Hedwig and her band, The Angry Inch. It's super high-concept, and I doubt even fans of the movie will like it, so sorry this is just for me I guess. Basically I was thinking about "I'm the new Berlin Wall" remark and her backstory in East Berlin, so I took some photos I had from my visit to the East Side Gallery (the longest remaining stretch of the Wall) and Hedwig-ized them with graffiti wigs. I don't know. It happened, here it is.

And it's for sale on the off chance someone else likes it!
