What Would Devo Do?



Another in my ongoing series of altered Jesus paintings. This print I discovered already framed and ready to go. Are we not Messiahs? We are Devo!!! The spuds in the background really pull the piece together as JC gazes off into the horizon deep in thought about future plans in this atomic age. I am including the before and after.

GOT AN URGE GOT A SURGE
AND IT'S OUT OF CONTROL
GOT AN URGE I WANNA PURGE
'CAUSE I'M LOSING CONTROL
UNCONTROLLABLE URGE
I WANNA TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT
UNCONTROLLABLE URGE
MAKES ME SCREAM AND SHOUT IT
IT'S GOT STYLE IT'S GOT CLASS
SO STRONG I CAN'T LET IT PASS
I GOTTA TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT
I GOTTA SCREAM AND SHOUT IT
AND I SAY YEAH

THAT IS AWESOME! That is a brilliant idea... I'll have to watch out at garage sales and thrift shops to see if I can find something close that I can Devolve in a similar manner.

I would totally rock that on my wall.

Duty Now, Spud!
