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.
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.
