Words by Glen, Artwork by Shyra
On the fifth day of TATEmas, Mikel gave to me:
five golden picks
four El Gran Burritos
three dueling drummers
two angel wings
and a bloody bird in a bare tree.
This piece is 8×10″. “I drew/painted 10 picks according to the design of this year’s picks and centered them on gold painted picks. The lyrics in the background are from ‘All At Once’ since it seemed there were so many changes all at once and some fans felt it was a total punch in the gut in the back, in the face, but also to just represent the general change and moving forward.” Comment below to enter to win this original artwork by Shyra Taylor. We’ll announce the winner tonight at 10pm Pacific Time.
Shyra lives with her husband and two girls (dogs) deep in the heart of Texas. Every spare moment she has, she spends in her studio listening to TATE and creating mixed media pieces using personal drawings, paints, pencils, papers – you name it. She enjoys finding ways to reuse/recycle different things in her works as well as collecting objects she finds in everyday places and odd spaces alike.
Glen is the founder and editor of This Is Nowhere. He’s grateful for an understanding wife and kids who indulge his silly compulsion to chase a band all over the Pacific Northwest (and occasionally beyond) every time the opportunity arises.
