Words by Glen, Artwork by Shyra

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

twelve Euro tour dates

eleven jumping monkeys

ten concert selfies

nine singing Chens

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.

The Airborne Toxic Event: 12th Day of TATEmas (detail)

This piece is 8×10″. “Each cup represents a flag from each country visited on TATE’s last Euro tour, and the background is a map of the Atlantic ocean symbolizing traveling across the pond, along with the lyrics to ‘This is London’ and an excerpt of ‘Dublin’ on the cup with the Irish flag.” 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.
