The Last Fiesta
Although this Last Supper post is about 40 days overdue, I thought Pale Horse Design's work needed a spotlight before Easter ended. (Thanks to Dan for sending me the original link!) "The Last Fiesta" is part of the "Saints and Sinners" exhibit in St. Petersburg, FL. Chris Parks' bold, tattoo-style portrait collections are inspired by Dia de los Muertos and Luchador culture. He also uses images of feudal Japan and other Eastern influences (check out this cool muay thai/Buddha hybrid here.)
I've been crazy-busy with my column lately, and I'm also starting to do some preliminary research on America's Christian hardcore and metal music scenes. I'm swimming in a vast ocean here (a Blood Ocean, even?) Any recommendations of bands, books or specific music scenes to check out?
