|Elvis with Donald, 1997
Acrylic on Board
14 1/4 x 10 1/4 in.
|My first motivation was the Mentos commercials on T.V. that displays a certain Mentos attitude.
But the Foofighters had already done a music video that mimicked the Mentos commercials.
So, I gave Elvis a Pez dispenser, but you can still see the Mentos attitude in Elvis.
I actually had a Donald Duck Pez dispenser as a child. I remember being able to pop off Donald's little plastic hat.
