I'm not a smoker but there have been some pretty key figures in my life who smoke and so I have this fascination with lighters. As has been the case with other lighters I've done, when I'm coming up with each specific design, I try to imagine two things: one, being electrified and/or somehow affected by knowing you have this very weird and singular totem in your pocket. it's in there, rubbing around, getting old, wearing and tearing, and you are forced to remember that every time you sit down. And two: what must it be like to be out somewhere and someone asks you for a light and you give them one and they see this lighter...what must that conversation be now?

This particular design is a not-so-clever maskup of some of the more existential characters in my mind's eye: one may recognize Grendel, Mr. Charlie Brown himself, and everybody's favorite I Heart Huckabees quote.
