    Default Swipe File: The Hell You Ride, Appeal To The Great Spirit and The Beach Boys



    Tom Mandrake's cover to The Hell You Ride #1 from Dark Horse Comics, 2012.



    Appeal To The Great Spirit, outside of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts, sculpted by Cyrus E. Dallin in 1909.



    Although it could of course have come via the Beach Boys' Brother Records logo...

    In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn?t judge, it?s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist?*collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.

    Or the Melvins’ Lysol. Clearly the most universally recognized use of this image.
