Intergalactic Cupcake

Intergalactic Cupcake, acrylic on paper, 2006.

Painted during Holland's time at the Cinderblock Gallery on Louisville's Main Street, Intergalactic Cupcake has appeared in many places and has been shown in numerous exhibitions.

It has also featured prominently in the backgrounds of Holland's art-photography work, usually shot in his studio. It was displayed at the Jefferson County Confidential solo photo exhibition, alongside photos it appeared in. These photos also have been exhibited in group shows in Europe.

Reportedly, a metal lunchbox featuring the image was planned by a Los Angeles company in 2008 but the merchandising project never materialized.
