Intergalactic Chicken Wings

I mentioned before that the people who started Paco's Tacos were from Buffalo, NY and that they were the first restaurateurs to introduce "Buffalo Chicken Wings" to Boston. I was asked to do some posters advertising this now-familiar snack. This one had the fancy graphics and my marker interpretation of galaxies: chicken wings in space. The "Intergalactic" bit is astro-culinary hype. If you were really consuming your chicken in intergalactic space, there would be no light except for a few pale smudges where the other galaxies were. You'd be floating in the middle of a huge, dark expanse with nothing but your snack to remind you of Earth back home. Endless darkness, cold, icy void...Boston in winter!

Markers on posterboard, 21" x 13", winter 1980.
