Mindbender by ZenMysticStudio Mindbender by ZenMysticStudio
This piece was originally done for a Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Tour poster. The original was also nominated for an Independent Music Award. A visionary piece featuring their signature guitars gone insane.

I decided to rework the original and massively detail it. It has a neo-aboriginal style to it that I use quit a bit in my work.

Illustrated in Painter X from an original pencil sketch.

Original was a 6 color screen print

This version will be 14 color screen print on 100lb paper.

Size: 22"x 30"

Named from the old 70's song Mindbender by Stillwater. Strangely enough, the same band that Cameron Crowe adapted for his movie "almost Famous". They were a Southern Rock band that hailed from a town near my home in Georgia. Being a teenager in the Southern rock drenched seventies, this song was one of our "local hero" favorites that we loved to crank up. Hometown hero's that will always be remembered for that one song and being that "Almost Famous" band from Georgia.

Inspirational Lyrics: " My Daddy was Gibson, My Mama was a Fender. That's why the called me Mindbender.

It really feels like stylized portions of tissue and other organic textures. Absolutely lovely work.
