Because nothing says "Welcome to my place!" like a shirtless dude with antlers holding a sniper rifle, snag one of local boy Michael Mahaffey's weird/ playful/ bathing suit area-tingling wall-hangers done up on canvas and wood using stencils, and all expressing his obsession with "mixing together opposing elements and celebrating the results", though periodically he's been known to table that idea. Highlights from his work include: Bloodbath at Tiffany's: This pic's got the ever-classy Ms. Hepburn fingering the trigger of a pistol in an effort to show off "a more dangerous and aggressive side", though she wouldn't have to do that if George Peppard would quit being such a beatnik wimp and start acting like he was on the A-Team. Hipster Hunter: Surprisingly not a pic of the Fear and Loathing author wearing a technicolor tank top and corduroy shorts screenprinted with fixies, this image plays on the idea of hanging an actual deer skull on the wall without the serious hassle of sneaking into the zoo then realizing they don't have any deer. Monrobot: The natural result of being a self-proclaimed "dork for sci-fi and a sucker for glamorous ladies" this Jetsons-esque work features a topless Marilyn Monroe wearing an old-school space helmet, while a retro robot throws up its pincer-hands in exasperation -- clearly this is Bobby the Robot.
