Bill Hicks was one of the greatest comedian/social commentators of our time. This painting was inspired by his comedy bit, ‘Confession Time’, about the show COPS, where they go to investigate a domestic dispute at a trailer park. The line “…her (the mom) fourteen cracker spawn are peering around her gingham skirt” sparked this image in my head where the babies go forth like a locust swarm and eat everything in sight.
