Here's a detail so you can see what those faint lines are doing up there in that left-hand corner: They're spelling out the names of garagey bands and their songs. It looks like a drawing of the j-card of a mixtape. And the mixtape looks to be called "There's No Place Like Home That's Why I Left."

The more "refined" work sold out of the Kucera Gallery show; it's the kind of work Haven is known for. The other work is listed as "NFS" (not for sale). Is that because Haven doesn't want to part with it, or because somebody (Haven, Kucera) thinks it wouldn't sell? Would it? Would it have to be priced differently because it's not Haven's usual work? In Parallel Universe, rules are unclear.
