The Airborne Toxic Event: 7th Day of TATEmas

Words by Glen, Artwork by Shyra

On the seventh day of TATEmas, Mikel gave to me:

seven Twitter rants

six jilted mermaids

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 up 7 different Mikel tweets using tweets from his Twitter page and wrote the lyrics to ‘The Graveyard Near The House’ in the background since one of the tweets used was one where he remarked about being so grateful of all the comments on that particular song.” Comment below to enter to win this original artwork by Shyra Taylor. We’ll announce the winner tonight at 10pm Pacific Time.

shyraShyra 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, Fan of The Airborne Toxic Event 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.
