Channeling Rick James at House Industries

(Click for big)

Our pals at House Industries have done it again. Given a plum opportunity to show their taste and maturity in front of corporate America, they have squandered it in high style. Fast Company wrote a gushy article about the boys - probably because they were so thrilled to be getting free art for their magazine. Oh well!

Sweet Mary and Joseph on a stick! I spent a full ten minutes just trying to get my head around the layers, the serifs and the licking.

Update: Fast Company dropped us a note to let us know that they paid for the illustration! God bless their largesse! And their strength of character to run such a superfreaky illo. We should have known House would extract a fee.
