Mark Mothersbaugh has been creating for more than three decades, and not always while donning that red flower-pot chapeau he made famous as Devo's majordomo. His instrumental arrangements can be heard in many Wes Anderson films, and his company, Mutato Muzika, provides intricate, quirky scores for loads of television adverts. Mothersbaugh's boundless creative grasp reaches into the visual arts as well — for the past 30 years, he has made one illustrated postcard per day, often sending them to loved ones or using them as a visual diary. The contents of the postcards are what you might expect from Mothersbaugh's twisted mind (ukulele-playing robots singing sweet serenades while mutant hippos speak in alien tongues). Selections from these postcard diaries are on display in the art gallery at Star Clipper (6392 Delmar Boulevard, University City) every day from Friday, August 1, through Friday, September 12. The opening-night reception begins at 7 p.m. Call 314-725-9110 or visit www.starclipper.com for more information.
