MUG WORTHY

OBJECTIVE:

Mug Worthy emblazoned East wall (salsa bar) of Taps n Tacos.

METHOD::

Select worthy mug shots (facial shot with Police placard/number, date, name jail), colorize in Warholian colors

TOTAL IMAGES: 25
Challenges:

1) finding quality black n white photos of head shot,
2) graphically touching up name, numbers
3) recreating a mug shot if possible (eg. Ali, Brando, Lennon)
4) selecting graphics artist who will convert the images into the warholian art , eg, ZillionDesigns (off shore artists at discounted prices).

The below are the images we want to use. Note that we will need to delete the profile shot (again, we want the format to match Nelson and Bowie).

First Tier mugshots that are ready to colorize (use only the head on shot, not the profile), total 20:

Sinatra - Kerouac - Cassady - Hoffman - Cash - Kesey - Jagger - Hendrix - Jane Fonda
Garcia - Leary - Morrsion - McQueen - Carlin (we need to graphically recreate the police placard)
Hopper - Gates - Harrelson - Cobain


Willie Nelson (done)
David Bowie (done)

Add 5:

Paul Newman (need placard)
Marilyn Monroe (Dimaggio, Norma Jean, 4 feb 54)
John Lennon (use the “People for Peace” photo)
James Brown (1988)
Downey Jr, 1999 (use photo with placard)

Second Tier (if we have time and room, these would be awesome)

Barkley (need to crate a placard)
Rourke (use the image from 1994)
