From out of nowhere -

"Ray Johnson's Bunny 2006"
digitally manipulated mixed media by Mick Mather
It's been said that Ray Johnson is the only "famous" mail artist. While that isn't exactly true, it's true enough...but, I digress. Another one of my new acrylic-on-newsprint paintings just happened to remind me of Ray and his bunny (I'll post the original, resized painting tomorrow). It so impressed itself upon my mind that I spent much of today working layers of Ray himself into the piece. I even re-did my signature logo for limited use in this, and any following pieces - in homage to this relatively unsung genius.
