Continuing his work with found texts and imagery, Toronto artist, Derek Sullivan (b.1976) has combined two divergent source materials for this new edition for Bywater Bros. Editions—a quote by Hunter S. Thompson (in which he summarizes Richard Nixon’s political character) and an image of comedian Robin Williams, getting “slimed” at the 19th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards in Westwood, California in 2006.
