Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh Shares his Postcard Diaries

I Like Ike by Mark Mothersbaugh

Mark Mothersbaugh began drawing and creating art as a child. He co-founded the new wave band Devo with his friend Jerry Casale while they were both art students at Kent State University in the 1970s. Mark Mothersbaugh has continued to create art and regularly exhibits and tours with his artwork. His 2007 Gallery Tour showcases two individual bodies of work; Postcard Diaries & Beautiful Mutants. Postcard Diaries features high-resolution, limited edition digital prints of Mark's postcard-sized artworks. According to his website, during his downtime on early tours with DEVO, Mark Mothersbaugh began illustrating on postcards to send to his friends, and has been creating anywhere from one to a couple of dozen new postcard-sized images per day for more than 30 years. His other body of work, Beautiful Mutants, is described at Mothersbaugh's website as "Images pulled from man's past... then corrected into sickeningly beautiful beings. A study of humans via symmetry using photos both recent & vintage."

The image posted here is "I_Like_Ike" by Mark Mothersbaugh, from Postcard Diaries.

Mark Mothersbaugh's 2007 Gallery Tour begins on February 14 with Postcard Diaries at the Brampton Indie Arts Fest in Toronto, Canada. The tour continues throughout the US and Canada through December 2007.
