I woke up as the sun was reddening; and that was the one distinct time in my life, the strangest moment of all, when I didn’t know who I was - I was far away from home, haunted and tired with travel, in a cheap hotel room I’d never seen, hearing the hiss of steam outside, and the creak of the old wood of the hotel, and footsteps upstairs, and all the sad sounds, and I looked at the cracked high ceiling and really didn’t know who I was for about fifteen strange seconds. I wasn’t scared; I was just somebody else, some stranger, and my whole life was a haunted life, the life of a ghost.

My David Lynch illustration is in this new book called “Never Sleep With The Director - And 50 other Ridiculous Film Rules”. You can read more about it here :-)


Milles David Lynch tegning er med i en ny bog, der hedder “Never Sleep With The Director - And 50 other Ridiculous Film Rules”. Kort beskrivelse af bogen: 

This book is meant for movie lovers, silver screen starlets and the people who get to yell ‘cut’ and ‘action’ on set.  It contains 51 movie-related rules, their history and quotes by industry leaders, Hollywood big shots, indie directors and a whole list of actors and actresses.

Læs mere og se flere billeder af bogen her eller her, hvor den også kan købes for små 15 €, hvis det har vakt interesse. Hvis du er hooked kan tegningen også købes som print m.m. på Society6 :-)

Back in the day Copenhagen was the tattoo capital of Scandinavia. In the wee-early 19th century newly-laid-drunk-out-of-their-minds sailors would let usually just as drunk Danish tattooists add an eagle or an anchor to whatever ink-entourage they had begun assembling through ports in New York, Hamburg, the far east, and so on.

Though Nyhavn 17, the world’s longest-running tattoo parlor, is still around, today the world of needled ink appears rather blah when put up against its former glory. Watching those terrible Ink shows it seems like 9 out of 10 customers come in asking for a fucking picture of their dead pet? Hail Mary, you miserable, boring doinks–no wonder your “almost human” canary punched its ticket. To sum it up, tattoos are just another item on the everything-list entitled “Stuff That Was Way Cooler in the Old Days.” Recently Jon Nordstrøm sent us his beautiful book, Danish Tattooing, which proves this sad truth. The book covers more than a century, but the ones we’re showing here are from the 60s– before silly bikers, former pet-owners, and advertising executives ballsed it all up. Enjoy.
