The Tittyman Camp
How did TITTY MAN begin one night I awoke and my room was glowing, a voice said "ucker wake up!! Yeah u ucker"..
I think God likes to say "ucker".
"I command you to Go to the desert. once there, Build a city. Build a city of TITTYS. I command you too. IF THY DOES NOT COVET THY TITTY, they will come 2 by 2," said the voice.
Since 1999 I have gone to the Black Rock Desert with my dedicated tribe, because it takes a few dedicated people to build a City of Tittys. I have collected Titty prints using a special painting technique. I start first by preparing my painting surfaces by sanding and sealing 4 foot by eight foot pieces of plywood. I then paint the surfaces and frame them. These are my building blocks. I apply paint to the tittys and press them onto the boards transferring the prints onto them each titty soul then signs the prints, immortalizing them forever. I build my buildings in increments of 8 feet. Each building is 16 feet by 16 feet. Each panel locks the other panels into a rigid structure, able to withstand 70 m.p.h. wind gusts. And at night they glow under 12, 48 inch double tube black lights. Its a process of evolution, it keeps growing and changing.
