This is an illustration of Karl Pilkington. He is friends with that guy Ricky Gervais. He has a perfectly round head and he is famous for his silly ad-libbed sayings. You can watch his show An Idiot Abroad on YouTube. I love how Karl turned out to look like a balloon. He is filled with helium and he moves really slowly and smoothly like a sloth. I am going through a balloon phase.
Monsters spend their weekends sweeping blue fuzzy dust balls from under their bed. This is a friendly blue fuzzball called poof. She is poofy and sweet.
This is a tropical fish with tribal patterns on his body. Like most fish — he is confused. Reality is too complex and too trianglely. He sometimes thinks he sees the pixels.
This guy is actually filled with helium and he also has helium filled balloons on his arms. He is a balloon with balloons. He is a gray cyclops monster with no depth perception. His reality is flat. He floats twice as well when he has extra balloons. He soars above the ground worried about approaching spring storms.
This is a hipster named Carter wearing a goofy hat and a jean shirt. He has two different color eyes and a nose ring. His toucan is named Drax and he does ecstasy.
Bob’s Big Boy is a burger joint in California. This is their cool 50s mascot as a zombie. He has gotton fat from eating brain burgers and brain juice shakes.
This is a red dwarf monster taxi cab driver. He is red and purple and his eyes are set far apart so he can see around traffic. He only speaks Farsi and he doesn’t read very well. His name is Akbar and he smells really bad and he leaves a slimy trail everywhere he sits. If you want to arrive at your destination on time you have to bribe him with a few dollars more. Edit: fixed the washed out colors. Being outside and using a computer to paint don’t mix.
I sometimes see this rotund purple monster in Starbucks. He always sits at a table by himself with his back to me listening to lectures on quantum mechanics and watching The Cleveland Show. He drinks too much coffee and it makes him jittery. Drawn in illustrator and painted in Photoshop.
This is Hunter Thompson’s Myna Bird Edward. Hunter used to get stoned and traumatize him to get him to perform for his friends. Edward has developed a personality disorder because of the stress of dealing with Hunter. Mynah Birds love small talk. They chatter on incessantly about the weather, Topgear and the life cycle of stars.
Myna Bird Illustration sad.
This is a stripped blue fish chasing after a smaller red fish — it is a big fish eating a small fish. This image represents the driving force of nature. Natural selection is what made us what we are. The brutal way nature works to design animals is, it pits lifeforms against each other in a struggle to survive. The most successful designs are the ones that survive to reproduce. It is one of the many natural forces that make life amazing and plants and animals beautiful. It reflects how Nietzsche felt about the Greeks. He saw them as tenacious predators who used their wits to survive, loved war and tragic dramas and they didn’t suffer from slave mentality — a victim’s (Christian) way of seeing the world. He was the founder of existentialism — a philosophy that urges you to take responsibility for your situation. It is a worldview that stems from Darwin’s origin of the species by natural selection.
