While I’m not advocating “matching” your art to the holidays, I couldn’t resist writing about Brian Dettmer‘s awesome, recycled-cassette-tape art for Halloween. I spotted Dettmer’s sculls at an art fair years ago and have never been able to track him down. The combination of the sadly dead music format and skull shape just spoke to me. So clever! And what makes them better are his tape choices. Here’s he’s got Mötley Crüe’s “Shout At the Devil” across the jaw. Perfect. Now I wonder what he would do with the saddest cassette-culture loss: the mixed tape.
