Cookie Monster

48inx48in, 22c gold leaf & acrylic on canvas


Cookie Monster is an iconic member of a children’s TV show deeply imbedded in American culture.  He’s characterized by an insatiable and single minded desire for cookies, a disregard for anything else but cookies, and even more cookies.  

The text is from Steppenwolf’s song Monster/Suicide/America, a 1968 protest song about the Vietnam War.  The song is split into three sections, like the title: the first being a history of America, the second, a warning of the repercussions of war, and the third a plea to the American people.  


America where are you now?

Don't you care about your sons and daughters?

Don't you know we need you now?

We can't fight alone against the monster.

Enveloped by the star-spangled banner, Cookie Monster contemplates the golden cookie.
