Isotope's Comic Rockstars Toilet Seat Museum
Blessed by Debbie Harry, Thanks to Matt Silady

The Isotope's world-famous Comic Rockstars Toilet Seat Museum is the planet's only museum dedicated to original art on toilet seats by comic creators. We always offer a new lid to the many comic artists and authors who visit the Isotope (yes I'm well aware the whole idea is completely ridiculous) and I always love seeing what the best writers and artists in the industry manage come up with on these things.

Knowing all too well how much I adore Blondie singer Deborah Harry, comic author and artist Matt Silady popped more than a few of my braincells by bringing the gorgeous artrock diva to life with his addition to our museum in his photo-realistic Homeless Channel style. Just in time for the pre-release single from Ms. Harry's upcoming album, Necessary Evil, too. Nice one, Matt!

Do check out these wonderful pictures (with the mouse clicky thing for image enlargement) of the seat that quite literally dropped my jaw.

And for a more in-depth look at Silady's creative process behind this lid, click on through to Matt's page.
