I Don't Want Fop, Goddammit! by shoomlah I Don't Want Fop, Goddammit! by shoomlah
My piece for Ltd. Art Gallery's OVER THE LINE show, opening TONIGHT (June 6th) in Seattle! I'll be swinging by the opening myself, if any of y'all are planning on making an appearance- looks like it's going to be a pretty amazing spread. :)

I had a ton of ideas for this show initially, and was actually a good 60% into a piece before I switched gears and decided to do a Dapper Dan spread, a la magazine ads of the late 1930's. I'm a sucker for typography and commercial design, not to mention George Clooney's handsome handsome face, so this seemed like the best choice all around.

HAHAHAHA SUCKERS try to shame me now for hoarding all those interbellum era fonts

True story:  After watching Oh Brother, I switched my hair care products to using pomade.

Man! I took one look, and I was right  back in the movie. I can almost hear George talking about pomade. I always thought they should have expanded that a bit. (Unless, of course, I am "miss-remembering", as I am wont to do, sometimes. I like to make up "deleted" scenes in my head as I am driving up and down the highways and interstates, so sometimes I get them mixed up with real scenes.) I can see him, (and the boys), sitting around a barrel, playing checkers, and George expounding on the proper uses of a good pomade like Dapper Dan! Bravo to you, Shoomlah!

I have to say how Everett was about his Dapper Dan that's how I am about my Secret Weapon from John Frieda. No I don't wear a hair net and I don't wake up each morning going "Ma hair" but I have to have that tube of Secret Weapon to keep my hair finished off right and frizz free. Totally love the look and feel of this "ad". You totally captured the feeling of era in which that movie was set in.
