Byrne-ing Down The House
Cover design and my portrait of David Byrne from What The Songs Look Like: Contemporary Artists Interpret Talking Heads Songs (1987). The book was my brainchild and I got to collaborate with my very favorite band, Talking Heads. I was able to obtain work from many incredible artists including: Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Byrne, Sue Coe, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Duane Michals, Jim Nutt, Nam June Paik, Gary Panter, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, William Wegman, Tadanori Yokoo and others.
