Spitting Image: 2 Dollars And 15 Cents

0

Back in 1995 when I was about to become a Freshman in high school, the movie Tank Girl came out. Not having read the comics I went into watching it with a clear mind and although some didn’t like it, I loved it! I know, I know I obsess over 90’s nostalgia from my teen years but this film had a little bit of so many things I love and well it still does.

From the raddest soundtrack (which was compiled by Courtney Love) to the campy fun of surviving the apocalypse (in 2033) while also befriending Mutant Kangaroos aka Rippers (one played by Doug Jones whom we all know I adore) to fighting off Malcom McDowell as the evil villain… I mean it really is my apocalyptic dream come true. It also made me discover the incredible artwork of Jamie Hewlett that created the characters that the movie was inspired by.

However the part I love most about Tank Girl is Rebecca Buck aka Tank Girl herself played by the wild and wonderful Lori Petty! I don’t know what I love more..her hilarious smart ass remarks, her I will kick your ass, can and will attitude or her incredible collection of thrown together outfits and hair styles that change every time she appears in the movie. So I decided to take all those things I love about her character and wrap them into one art piece. I guess you can say 2020 also inspired me as the perfect time to knock this one off my art bucket list. I call it “2 Dollars And 15 Cents”….

Boils and Ghouls…It’s Spooky Season! Which means.. now is the time to stock up on my creations at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL!

Why buy what everyone else has at the franchised stores when you can buy one-ok-a-kind handmade creations that nobody else has, all while supporting an artist and a small business that gives back to the community and supports local artists. My zombie friends pictured here say “it’s a no brainer!”
