“It seems that the more I tried to make my life about the pursuit of art, the more money controlled my life: collecting unemployment insurance, the humiliation of borrowing money from friends and family, tossing and turning at night while trying to figure out how to pay the rent. To survive I had to work hard jobs and afterwards I’d feel too tired and too stressed to paint. It’s very hard to create under those circumstances. Creativity is a delicate process. Often times I wonder if I should have just pursued a career for the first half of my life, obtained some degree of financial security, and then transitioned into art.”
HOUSTON (KTRK) — If you have driven down Westheimer in Montrose recently, you may have seen a new mural being created on the side of Numbers Night Club. It is being painted by local artist Rene Fernandez.
The mural includes several famous 80’s and 90’s alternative music artists faces or their band logos. Right now Fernandez has so far completed, from left to right on the wall, the Bauhaus logo, Peter Murphy, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Al Jourgensen of Ministry, Deborah Harry, Joey Ramone of the Ramones, David Bowie, Depeche Mode’s logo, Ian Curtis of Joy Division, Morrissey, Siouxsie of Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Robert Smith of The Cure.
Fernandez says he was inspired by his own memories of bands that have played at Numbers. The artists adds that the walls of the club are a giant blank canvas in need of some love. Fernandez said he chose the artists he because he feels they laid the groundwork to influence so many artists today and they are important to the history of Numbers.
The owner of Numbers also says this mural is one of several improvements the club will be undergoing inside and out.

"When a man is a man, he’s destructive
When a man is a man, he’s seductive
When a woman is a sensitive thing
When a woman is a woman, he’s a madman”
What you see here are the first 5 copies of ”SOME WEAR LEATHER, SOME WEAR LACE”, with a 22cm/22cm size and a thickness of about 2,5cm. The cover is a paperback and inside there are thick ‘drawing’ type of pages with a lot of photos of 1980s goths/postpunks/wavers. The main text tells us about the story of ‘goth’ from the beginning till its ‘death’ in the late 1980s. Including interviews, thoughts and memories of original goths and bands such as Clan of Xymox (NL), Kirlian Camera (IT), Opéra de Nuit (FR), F.O System (HU), Pin Ups (FIN) & Alien Sex Fiend (UK)
