Mark Mothersbaugh: Postcard Diaries


Oct 08 2009 - Nov 14 2009

Mark Mothersbaugh, of the 70s and 80s pop music phenomenon DEVO, has been making visual art since childhood, just after it was discovered that he was extremely nearsighted and legally blind. His first correctional glasses offered Mark a new view of the world, inspiring his obsession with imagery and illustrations. During his downtime on early worldwide tours with DEVO, he began illustrating on postcards to send to his friends, which he still creates, and has been creating every day for over 30 years; a very obsessive habit which still yields anywhere from 1 to 25 new images per day.
