The Robot Ate Me

Medium: Digital Oil Paints Canvas: 4" x 4" pixel board

This is a picture I painted about my experiences with the band The Robot Ate Me and their latest album, Carousel Waltz. In all my years, after all the gigs and records I've seen and heard, I don't think I've ever come acro such a pleasing album, lusciously simple and honestly upbeat. Their songs sink into your veins like lysergic acid diethylamide and I used this as inspiration for this emotive piece. Here you can clearly see the "face" is made up of my physical (not my inner) face. Note the slightly askew eyes and rickety smile annotating the volatility of TRAM's sound. The rainbow is representative of the range of pretty sounds that The Robot Ate Me can make. The figure delicately cut from his surroundings is a member of said band. See how when he sings, beautiful black doves float serenely from his mouth (yes, that's a biblical reference to Noah and the bible).

All in all, this album is pretty much better than drugs. Like cannabis. So it's like a class C substance.

It's on 5RC. And that means they're scene. So go get it already!
