EAT: The Back Story
Here at Baltimore’s Hungriest Alternative Weekly, we’re always very excited about the latest iteration of EAT, our annual Dining Guide, and we want to show you a few alternate takes and Behind The Scenes shots of the construction of the EAT sculpture-prop we used for the cover, such as the majestic image above, featuring local funnyman Jim Meyer, captured by Valued City Paper Freelance Photographer Ryan “Rarah” Stevenson.
The sculpture is a ripoff of something we saw Top Model/Supermodel Janice Dickenson enjoying on the Internet (FIG. 1)
We figured hey, let’s do this EXACT SAME THING, only with a Chef and a thing that goes really good with S-E-X, right? Yeah!
So we called up talented artist Emily C-D, and after she helped us with the spelling, the construction of the now-iconic EAT sculpture commenced. Emily’s colleague Emma Alves did the carpentry of the frame, which is shown here (Figs. 3-5)
