Each artist chose a song that is attatched to a certain memory or emotion. This song was then used as a stimulis to create work for Mixed Tape Club. A collection of memories, thoughts and drawings about the songs from our past.
The work I submitted for the zine is a homage to a drawing by Peter Max who drew on a napkin for my dad while they were at dinner in London in the 60s – it reminds me of Lucy in sky with Diamonds and consequently Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles, which my Dad and I used to listen to – I still have the record and I still have the napkin work framed, the stains have yellowed nicely with age.
