You can only truly enjoy all the fruits of a relationship if you explore them for years/remain super vigilant about untagging yourself in Facebook photo albums. Never being caught making out with slutty girls at parties, Dan McCarthy
Having learned screen printing and poster design as an art student at SMFA, East Falmouth-based DM "explores the relationship between nature and technology" in his sweet (and sometimes comical) collection of silk screened posters/prints, ink on paper drawings, and graphic tees, all of which are heavy on dinosaurs, skeletons, and dark, starry nights, like Dr. Alan Grant's eHarmony profile. Intricately drawn prints/posters include Animal Kingdom, a four-color print displaying a darkly lit block of classic New England three-families (read: any Somerville street) with one illuminated yellow window showing a Boston terrier; a Cubist-esque two-color concert poster for Dagobah (and his own band Helms) at the Middle East called I'm a Cruise Ship; and a blue/black print depicting a headlight-illuminated car speeding away from a lone country farmhouse with an inset that shows a handwritten note from "Tina" to mom about catching the Sonic Youth concert, but strangely nothing about why she'd just killed a family of farmers in a lone country farmhouse. If you'd rather wear the art, DM also puts his drawings on tees like Memories, a white crewneck depicting human and dinosaur skeletons casually chatting about sunny days and trees; a dark gray short sleeve showcasing a red squid wrapped around a blue whale; and a light gray number portraying two walking skeletons (one human, one dinosaur) covered by white transparent sheets, called Ghost Buddies, which is who you're gonna call, if you just need to talk.
If one new piece isn't enough (and is it ever?), DM's running his own print-of-the-month club where, for one price, you'll get 12 new screen prints a year in addition to a customized bonus print, allowing you to explore different combinations of art in your apartment, without having to tell your GF that they're super old and taken way before you guys got together.
