Flynt-like

Saw this painting (below) at a coffee shop in Chicago (New Wave, in Logan Square!) and it made me think of good ol’ Flynt. If you haven’t read The Butterfly Clues yet–and you probably haven’t, because it doesn’t come out until Vagentine’s Day (which, like Valentine’s Day, falls on February 14th)–Flynt’s a street artist who spends much of his time harvesting objects and supplies with which to make art. He also likes drawin’ nude ladies, and transmogrifying them into weirder-than-human forms.

Anyway, when I noticed this piece–by an artist named Dusty James (wonder if that’s a pseudonym, too…?)– it immediately brought Flynt to mind. It’s something he’d create, or at least admire. For sure. Looks like Dusty used a lot of salvaged objects to make it, too–found wood, little plastic toy soldiers, lego-type things. Really neat. I like it.
