Royce came to First Thursday in February 2008 armed with a backpack full of paintings
. At first I thought he was going to give them ALL to me, but then I realized I was just a greedy, little piggy and in fact, he just brought me many OPTIONS. Which is almost as good.
I love it when people come to First Thursday with stuff to trade. Sometimes people come by, see bARTer Sauce and then run home to get stuff to trade with me. I love their energy. I can barely bring myself to upload a picture correctly and these people are making special trips and tromping around downtown to trade with The Sauce. It brings me much joy and happiness.
Mushy part over.
So Royce. He made this Four Boobed Alien with Dingle painting and also allowed me to call it a Four Boobed Alien with Dingle. Some artists wouldn't be as nice.
I asked him if he had a website that he would like me to promote and he sent me a link to something called SkullVomit. At first I was a little sorry I had asked. But then I visited the site. You could say that Royce is a little dark. And if you did, you would be completely under selling him. One of his movies is called "Dead Baby Hanging." Which is about a dead baby...hanging. You get the picure. Dark. Real dark. And awesome.
You can also buy a copy of his book Time is a Bastard -- The description says, "It gives poetry exactly what it needs. A painful kick in the balls." Awesome! I've had that on my to do list for at least a year now. And voila! I can mark it off because Royce has already done it. Phew!
