Since the image debuted online, several folks have sent emails and messages to Jermaine inquiring about the artistic depiction of the bands frontman, Josh Homme.
Regarding the imagery, Jermaine says:
‘Yes, there is some significance intended in the various aspects of the image. The fence, the balloon, and even Josh’s skeleton hands, they are all included for a reason. There is no ‘filler’ here: visually, I wanted to say what I did in the most straightforward, simplistic way I could. The print felt good. But I’d rather people come up with their own interpretations. Let the thing say what it means to you. What I was thinking is academic, and I’ll even admit that it would be instructive to some folks. But what it means to you is what’s more important. I will say that the art was inspired by the QOTSA song, ‘The Vampyre Of Time & Memory’. That song is simultaneously about helplessness and absolute control…at least to me. Things spiraling away from your grasp…but the firm acceptance of the whole thing. It’s a beautiful sadness.’
