This is what I was thinking when working up this image, loosely based on the misty photography from their album cover of the same name.
If you are in LA this December, be sure to check out Gallery 1988's exhibition which features 100 artists. Or check their online Gallery and pick up a few of your favorite pieces! A blurb on the event in the Huffington Post.
