~RAPHAEL (the) LYON . . roarin’ behind HONEY’S !!
yeah, damnit . . ENLIGHTENMENT !!
and right – now !!
so, yeah I have met the kool kid . . behind HONEY’S / MEAD QUIRKY SIDE !!
of course. the younger bro of NOAH LYON, & also a socially conscious artist – just not so, literally.
used to go by MUDPONY or something like that. MUDBOY !!!!!
which just goes to prove:
1. what goes around . . comes around
2. RAPHAEL & NOAH !! literally, bros of the same mother & father / DANNY LYON !!
4. talking about politically & socially conscious & . . alternative VISION, POTIONS & DREAMS & AMERICAN (SWEET MEAD) CRAFTS
3. it didn’t take long . . for that shoe to drop / IRAN VS TRUMP.
see: IRAN WARNS TRUMP – HIS STANCE IS GOING TO START A WORLD WAR
the opposite of HONEY’S MESSAGE, damn – why can’t the whole world – just grow up, and be like . . BROOKLYN ?
so . . I met RAPHAEL a few times, but the earliest I can recall, and find the pix (!!) is back in the winter of 2007, at a should-be legendary show . . called ‘Secrets of Woonasquatucket – Screenprints from Providence’ – curated by ANDREW MOON BAIN, at the now defunct early Bushwick gallery pioneer – AD HOC.
RAPHAEL is much more comfortable as a behind-the-scenes guy, so maybe that’s why you haven’t heard of him so much, he’s most definite NOT into the mainstream hustle, let alone, the alternative side of things, but obviously, he does POP UP !! in the strangest and really far-out places.
His mom knit his hat, she knits a lot. his dad is the getting famous alternative culture photographer & filmmaker DANNY LYON, who just had a critically acclaimed retrospective at The Whitney, and his bro . . is the outrageous NOAH LYON aka retard riot.
after I posted that weekend blast . . on HONEY’S CRAFT FAIR, just off the ‘pottery’ post I caught on . . . @senyor_amigo / NICK PAYNE’S feed, lo & behold, in comes this note from long-time-no-see, RAPHAEL !!
“I’m one of the owner’s of Honeys / also Noah’s brother.
Honeys is the tasting room of ENLIGHTENMENT WINES / EnlightenmentWines.com”
accompanied . . with permission to pull some pix about the CRAFT FAIR, off their Instagram feed.
and so here, in the interests of world harmony, a sweet sweet alternative life . . .
not to forget . . healthy bees – much honey, and craft mead !!
and anybody with love potions, you know where to send them / let’s hope to raise a glass of DIY mead in the White House.
here – they are:
so . . when IRAN & THE U.S. and let’s face it, whoever else has em nukes !! destroy the world as we know it, and the next wave of aliens arrive to make a new ‘beginning’ . . they might uncover one little guy like this – and say: no wonder they blew themselves up to pieces / or,
hey !! long lost buddy, sorry it took so long for us to come back & save ya.
RUN, don’t walk. if ya missed it – there is always, ?????
next year ?!!!!
