1-800-BIG LIPS

Devin Sexson often wrote and drew about lips. Lips were something that could always be bigger. Thin lips were a sign of conformity and surrender. Big lips were a symbol of triumph and identity.
Devin had a story about a box he kept under his bed in which he stored "all of his lips," and sometimes he would reach under that bed and pull out that box and put on all of his lips. The way he performed this story, reaching his arms under the bed and opening that box, made it so incredibly vivid. Then he would put on his big lips, and they were so big that he had to use his arms like a giant lip mouth in front of his face to demonstrate what it was like when all his lips went out way in front of his body, and what would happen when he would buzz those lips.
