  1. Arcangel Tom Selleck meets space baby from 2001 A Space Odyssey. Artist has too many voices in his/her head talking at once.

  4. I took a photo of this on my way to the BurdaStyle book launch in Nov and sent it to a bunch of people!! I saw your post and started cracking up. It's on Kenmare, right? I love random stuff like this.

    1. eep, is it?!

      a quick google search reveals that a triangle is used-- but selleck's triangle is broken-- i thought it was a pyramid at first glance. but maybe it's a broken sciento symbol? INTERESTING.

      ooh and hey there's a lifeline running through it.

    2. I did a quick search on Burt Reynolds, looks like there is some question as to his belief system, but it seems to pop up with Scientology. Weird. But according to the article below, Tom Selleck's acting teacher is (was) a Scientologist. There's a lot of hidden symbolism in that piece of street art.

    3. Oh yeah, and the pizza people... I wish you weren't moving. I'd crash your next party and say "Lets go eat Tom Selleck pizza and see if we see blue babies too!".
