Thanks for introducing me to Guy Madden and his works, it’s great !!
He is a very odd & interesting director!KISSES!
Great art work, awesome hockey players. The ladies under the hairdryers is the best – it is so 60’s, love it!
I know, the hairdryer bit is very neat! I guess they were replaced by the blow dryer.
Wow a blast from the past for drying hair, love those ladies sitting in a row. Super cool art!
