Art Tuesday

So way back in the late 70's, early 80's there was this all girl band named "The Runaways". Two of the girls went on to have quite a bit of spotlight shone upon them. You know them as Joan Jett & Lita Ford.

Meanwhile, one of the other girls may not have been in the spotlight, but continued to be successful through creative outlets, art, solo albums, writing, etc. A bit of a "Jack of all trades". Her name is Cherie Currie. Let me tell ya, she has some mean chainsaw art skills. Go check out her sculptures here: Chainsaw Chick

The pic at the top of the post is a sculpture of a mermaid Cherie did. Wow! She also wrote a critically acclaimed autobiographical book about "The Runaways" called "Neon Angel". You might want to go check it out & give it a read. If not, then maybe you can go check out the movie based on the book that hits theaters this week.
