This photo is called "Spellbound" from 'City of Wounded Boys & Sexual Warriors,' 1982.
I am posting it a day late <g> in honor of Mark Stephen Souder's birthday yesterday. In the mid 1980s, Mark asked to publish this image in a little zine that he produced called "Sign of the Times" and he liked the image so much, that he purchased an art print of it sometime later. I can't tell you how much it meant to me to have someone publish my work outside of Drummer Magazine which was the only publication that had dared to print my work at that time. I've always respected that he has followed his own path, something every artist of any worth must do. Whenever I look at this image, I think of Mark. Happy Birthday, Mark!
