Following up on yesterday's post about artist William Lamson, who we featured on this week's episode, I got the inside scoop on the inspiration for the banana mask from William himself:

how did I come up with banana mask... well, the piece is about frustration. Like the desire to hit yourself in face if you are frustrated with yourself, but you dont actually do it, because you like your face, so instead, you blow up bananas on your surrogate face.

Sounds like we could all use a banana mask once and awhile. Thanks William.
