It all depends on where your feet and head are planted. This is where the idea’s grow and one day turn into something. Saul Bass said something like, idea’s come from seeing one thing and it reminding you of something else. Working on Odd Duck, which popped out of my subconscious into sketch form recently, I have been trying to figure out where it came from.
The only duck hunting I have ever done was as a kid was on a Nintendo. The psychedelic look I attribute to discovering Jimi Hendrix around the same time. Nintendo’s Duck Hunt and Jimi Hendrix? Maybe the Odd Duck isn’t so odd after all.
Side Note – I once convinced my grandmother to buy me a psychedelic Jimi Hendrix T-shirt at the Texarkana Mall – Wore it until, “The washing machine ate it”. Love you mom.
Side Side Note – In High School the AP called me Billy “Purple” Haze. I wonder why?
Currently listening to Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts. (Jimi Hendrix and “Band of Gypsys” – Buddy Miles & Billy Cox). This music still gives me goose bumps!
