If you’re in LA tomorrow night, be sure to check out the opening reception party for Gag Me With a Toon 5. Zoetica has a piece in it and it features one of our favorite fashion icons, Aeon Flux.
Here it is! My Æon Flux diptych for Saturday’s Gag Me With a Toon 5. I decided to go with just a touch of Egon Schiele, since he’s one of my favorite artists, and one of Peter Chung’s most significant influences.
I hope to see you all at the reception tomorrow, 7-10PM at WWA Gallery!

For those unfamiliar with the Flux canon, this is the eponymous heroine and her lover/nemesis, Trevor Goodchild, who embodied a strangely compelling amalgamation of eroticism and repulsion in the series. Here we see Æon and Trevor indulging in squishy eggs, which were featured in one of the earlier episodes, “Leisure”. I always thought of these as a nod to Bataille’s fetish classic, Story of the Eye.
