inspiration day: cosmic peter max
it's hard to imagine the 1960's without peter max. his work from that time period has become synonymous with the counter culture movement. many a teenager had their walls plastered with his posters and their floors littered with his album covers.
while studying painting, he became fascinated with astronomy and space. this "cosmic awakening" is a strong theme in many of his compositions.
and i love his psychedelic profiles. like silhouettes on LSD.
there's a lot of peter max merchandise available on ebay and etsy. he printed everything from scarves and apparel to linens and kitchenware. including fondu pots, naturally.
i will issue a bit of a warning, though. i have a ruthless, cut-throat, vicious style of bidding on ebay. so watch out if you ever spot peter max mini dresses, fabric, umbrellas, or tights, because i'm all over it.
