Gonzo Metal Fist: $50 - 24X12
Acrylic, wheat paste, digital print. In this homage to Hunter S Thompson, You Killed Me First has brought the Gonzo Metal Fist which he has used in street pieces to the canvas. The "Gonzo fist," characterized by two thumbs and four fingers holding a peyote button, was originally used in Hunter S. Thompson's 1970 campaign for sheriff of Aspen, CO.

Virgin Mary: $40 - 8X24
There She Is takes her interest into that of Christian iconology with this Virgin Mary piece. Again, stylized in that There She Is manner, this common image has new life breathed into it with a highly textured surface and bright colors. The Sacred Heart in this piece is in an anatomical form yet painted in metallic golds and silvers.

Grim Grinning Post: 2 Versions...

Acrylic, wheatpaste, digital print. You Killed Me First revisits the image of the Disney Haunted Mansion plaque in this piece. He continues to explore this image in a dilapidated state. His own take on the Haunted Mansion wallpaper- complete with images of his Spade heart logo and wild style signature- looks as though it has been on the canvas forever. Like from a room of a forgotten building, the distressing is more subtle in some senses than plaque pieces before and has an eerie sense of realness --As if a musty odor of decay were to emanate from the piece. A black shadow is cast around the actual plaque allowing the center image to jump out from the background as if moving towards you. There are some dark red drops mixed with black splattered across the front, but not drastically… as if the splatters have started to fade over time.
