The Man Who Wears The Star
One of several sketchy black and white paintings done on bristol board for the Fuel to Build a Fire solo exhibition at the KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, 2007. It contains the visual pun of Paul Stanley as a wild west sheriff who wears a star-shaped badge, as well as the title's reference to the old Texaco slogan, "Trust Your Car to the Man Who Wears the Star".
None of the bristol works for the KISS show have been exhibited since. Some of the works are now owned by the band and the coffeehouse.
