Interesting work. Very thoughtful. Unforgettable imagery.. Does Snow White represent Richard's love for cocaine?

Beautiful. I recently watched his "milk & cookies" routine again where he explains the whole incident, & it resonates as much today as it did when he originally performed it. You are always so on point with your mixing of styles too.
