The Airborne Toxic Event: 8th Day of TATEmas

Words by Glen, Artwork by Shyra

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

eight white dresses

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″. “This one by far is my absolute favorite – all the dresses were created separately and glued together and the lyrics to ‘Elizabeth’ were written in the background.” 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.
