Are you referring to the 'red rocket'?
Indeed.

I might argue that it's a crucial component of the composition.






























Then again, I might argue that nobody will be able to provide a worthwhile explanation except for Mr. Horkey...

Meanwhile, WTF? :wink:

I'd say the beast is pretty stoked that in a few moments it will embark on committing some evil driven mayhem, it's excited.

personally, i won't buy into it unless i hear it from horkey's mouth, as i don't generally like people other than the artist themselves casting their own opinion as a piece's definitive meaning or inspiration. plus, in this case of an image that is so willfully abstract, i perfer that people discover their own personal meaning - not based on someone else's theory.

I'm not that Mike. I'm just some other random dorky Mike that BRLSQ has enslaved.
My only talents are as sycophant, following rudimentary directions, espousing unfounded opinions on the internet to the consternation of others, and flowery sentences.

is there gonna be a slap fight up in this piece?

i personally welcome pontification on our posters, because i think a lot of them can be interpreted in a billion ways, and the one you're most likely to never hear is aaron's own interpretation of it. therefore, everyone else should have at it. the only point i'd make is that rev. mike may have better perspective since he helped us print these beasts (at least i think he was there... it's all such a blur!), so he's likely had to stare at the image for far longer than he'd ever hoped!

I guess this isn't the place to talk about art. I retract all my statements.
