I think so...mattlew69 wrote:So did the snake eat one of the helmeted birds?
I asked Aaron *essentially* the same question, when this image got released in AyeJay's instagram:
Well, actually I asked if there was going to be a discarded helmet somewhere on the floor...
To which Aaron said:
"It's out of frame..."
Beyond involving snakes / serpents / symbolism behind them... I don't believe so.mattlew69 wrote:Is there any relationship between this, True Grit and Dawnbringer?
But hey, it's ART so it is all pretty damn subjective... I say draw your own conclusions!

Because *this* is staying there for the next 10 years!
This was just an AWESOME post worth repeating!
However... I am coming to think that ALL the animals in Aaron's post apocalyptic world seem to be blind.veltri wrote:I think the True Grit snake is just a part of that movie's world since a key plot point was the snake pit.mattlew69 wrote:So did the snake eat one of the helmeted birds?

So now in Horkey's world, eyeless owls eat mini-mantas and snakes eat blind, possibly helmeted birds.
From the tail it looks like the snake may have popped the cork off the bottle where the bird could have been taking refuge. But the feathers look too big.
So maybe the snake used to take refuge in the bottle, outgrew it, but keeps it around anyhow like an old blanket, feeling conforted by poking it's tail in there.
Birds wear helmets and find their way around by a elaborate network of string between reference points...
Owls are eye and sightless... And that snake looks VERY blind to me... Which would actually make sense...
Even from an evolutionary standpoint being as they hunt primarily by smell and body heat of their prey...
Food for (Horkey) thought...
Different snake...Callaghanx wrote:Im wondering if the Snake on the TG wood, caught up with the helmeted bird on the back. Also has a reference to "Satans Finest"
But I think that is a pretty AWESOME interpretation!
Personally, I would to see an on-going battle between helmeted birds and serpents!!
Back in his graff days Aaron basically did a series of illustrations for Rhymesayers
that were a turntable *litterally* battling a spray can...
If this becomes a more *personal* Midwestern, post apocalyptic equivalent of that...
That would be KILLER!!

This MIGHT have to be the first horkey I ever frame 2 versions of. I'm not even into snakes but this is amazing.
Yeah I didn't realize this was one of the large ones....no way I'll be able to frame both so I might have to work up something that looks decent with each and just swap them out occasionally.
But *that* is a pretty KICK ASS idea!!

1. Graveyard, “Hisingen Blues” (Nuclear Blast)

yep, Aaron has great taste (IMO). but THIS is the best...
My number one dream poster project right now would be something for the Swedish band Graveyard — absolutely cannot get enough of them, my perfect gravel road at dusk soundtrack. Hisingen Blues has been in such heavy rotation since its release last year that our four-year-old son knows most of the songs at this point.

Sorry for the SUPER post, but there were just SO many great comments in this thread!
This is what EB is ALL about!
