A small project- but one near and dear to my heart- my rendition of Bill Hicks, but with his 3rd Eye open and watching the mediocre masses while taking a drag on a cigarette… Bill has been an artist that in the last few years has helped me open my 3rd eye to art, creation and what it means to be someone a bit outside of the mainstream. So without further ado… here are some Bill Hicks Quotes to enjoy my new artwork with…..
“Squeegee your third fucking eye!”
“I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don’t like anything in the mainstream and they don’t like me.”
“When did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? I want my children to listen to people who fucking rocked! I don’t care if they died in puddles of their own vomit! I want someone who plays from his fucking heart!”
“Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.”
“Go back to bed, America. Your government has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed, America. Your government is in control again. Here. Here’s American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up. Go back to bed, America. Here is American Gladiators. Here is 56 channels of it! Watch these pituitary retards bang their fucking skulls together and congratulate you on living in the land of freedom. Here you go, America! You are free to do what we tell you! You are free to do what we tell you!”
-Bill Hicks- American Comedian, Philosopher and Hero
