I am exhausted and quite possibly delirious but can you see something else if you invert the picture?

I thought it was interesting that this the first one with blue in it, I think. I am also tired and delerious though. I don't really reccommend driving until 5 am after a show.

The Detroit is RJ, Columbus and Toronto II are AA and Minneapolis will be as well.

I have looked at the inverted picture a hundred times and it looks like an owl, ground hog, cobra, or one of those ferret like things that kill cobra's. But seriously I am so fucking tired it could be a picture of Jack White for all I know. One thing that did grab me was the use if the triangle with an object in the middle. I am still quite sure that either Rob or Jack are obsesses with the all seeing eye. There are just too many uses I'd the Masonic symbol for me nit to think otherwise, but as always I could be wrong.

I just noticed that the light on the face comes from the W
Thats why the text is off centered, to place W in the center of the image as its the source of the light on the face
(some Donis Dondis reading of Primer of Visual Literacy and you get all the Gestalt theory interpretation on balance of the elements that form the image)

Someone on EB just pointed out that this one has a glow effect, so I just turned down the lights and took a shot and it's pretty fucking cool if you ask me. I had no idea. :?

How the hell are you going to frame it while it's in the tube?
