Bill Hicks - Propaganda Art Poster by Hal Hefner by HalHefnerART Bill Hicks - Propaganda Art Poster by Hal Hefner by HalHefnerART
Bill Hicks was an amazing comedian who spoke about things that most people just ignore. While most of us live in a world of lollipop culture rainbows and star wars daydreams, somebody has to analyze what's happening in the darkest corners of our mind and our government. He did that. If you're a kid in London, India or Brisbane, go and find some YouTube videos of Bill Hicks' standup. It's relevant moreso today than it was in the late 80's and early 90's. AND if you're a fan of the band TOOL, they sampled his stand up in their work and he even toured with them prior to his death.

So keep on liking the Star Wars art and video game art I produce but for once it would be nice if people paid attention to some substance and intellect on this thing we call deviantART.

Absolutely love Hicks and this poster is fantastic!

Speaking of Tool, I love the bit he did with his contact lens during the 1992 Lollapalooza tour. Such a terrible voice to lose so young.

"Three weeks ago two of my friends and I went to a ranch in Fredericksburg, Texas, and took what Terence McKenna calls "a heroic dose." Five dried grams. Let me tell you, our third eye was squeegeed quite cleanly." -BH

Thanks so much...That's the eye of Horus or the all knowing, all seeing third eye. Bill is great, so is George. I saw George live in 1995. Amazing...

cool...read about Horus man. Every artist and thinker needs to read that tale from ancient Egypt. I am glad I can introduce you to this. That's what artists are supposed to do for other artists. I'm loving your progress in your work too. Keep on chugging along my friend!
