Steven Judd Image of the Week: 'Super Friends'


Steven Paul Judd, Kiowa/Choctaw, is known primarily as a filmmaker; with writing partner Tvli Jacob he penned and/or directed American Indian Graffiti: This Thing Life (2003), Search for the World’s Best Indian Taco (2010), and Shouting Secrets (2011). Yet he is also a prolific visual artist whose mashups of Native experiences and disposable American pop culture are sly and often downright funny. His creations include paintings, prints, poster art, photography, and t-shirt designs.

Here's how he describes this work on his Facebook page:

"SUPER FRIENDS" 12x18 on vintage ledger paper from the year 1868! prismacolor pencils and india ink. This picture is starting to get shared a lot, I know a lot of folks don't know about ledger art..but a lot of plains tribes did them around 1860's up to the 1920's. My tribe the Kiowas (along with a few other tribes) really became know by their ledger art when they were prisoners at Fort Marion.
