Your Biennial Nirvana Baby Update
Hey, what’s the Nirvana Nevermind baby, Spencer Elden, up to? This time he isn’t recreating the photo, again. But he does show up in this video, talking about his gig as artist Shepard Fairey’s assistant. Elden is himself an artist, and, if the previous re-enactments aren’t a good indicator of what he needs, he starts this video by asking people to check out his prints on his website: “I’m trying to make some money, I’m broke.” Elden works for Fairey’s Obey clothing, though recently Fairey is probably better known as the artist behind the Obama Hope poster. Some other interesting details in this video: Elden says his work was discovered after he came out of “military school” (he was a JD) and: “Everyone out there in the world’s seen my penis, or my baby penis.” Imagine the years of jokes this causes with friends and dates: “Oh, yeah, I didn’t recognize you until I saw your penis.”
The “No Rain” bee girl was on Reno 911! in 2008.
