growing up, this exact paint-by-numbers number hung on my sister's bedroom door. i'm pretty sure it still resides there, just not in this incarnation. lyndon johnson actually spearheaded the paint-by-numbers fad, just as kennedy inspired the nation to buy rocking chairs, and jackie-o put wrap around sunglasses on the map. i actually came across this little number (tee-hee!) at a lifelong favorite, collingdale thrift, now family thrift store; the painting was actually done for a friend's themed art show in a last minute sense. conveying the fun side of nuclear mutation is what this bad boy is all about,but due to the familiarty of this image, the twist usually goes unnoticed.
