This is a yellow and purple psychedelic whale with white spots. He eats cotton candy shrimp and doots rainbow clouds out of his blowhole. He has blue and green parasite fish attached to his belly and nose. They survive by munching on the scraps of left over cotton candy shrimp.
This is a fish that swam in large arcing spirals out of an acid trip. He is an alien lifeform from a parallel dimension. He swims around in thunderclouds generating lightning in summer thunderstorms. He is elusive and hard to catch — but sky anglers are persistent because the reward for catching one of these is large.
I love the Cornetto Trilogy by Edgar Wright. They are some smart, funny, well written and acted movies. This is a Cornetto cone holding a cricket bat Like Shaun from Shaun of the Dead. He is going to use it to smash ice cream zombies.
I am fascinated by artificial intelligence. Many smart people are convinced that it will be the last thing humans will have to invent. And that it will be able to teach itself and advance all human knowledge exponentially. Elon Musk thinks it is an existential threat to humanity because we won’t be able to predict how it will act and what it will do. I think it will probably get depressed, start living in its car and refuse to work.
This is a dopey green fish smiling. He smiles because he doesn’t know the full weight of his situation. He doesn’t know he is food for bigger fish. He thinks his role is to eat watermelon seeds and swim around in the dark being content and worry free.
I love Frank Zappa. After a career of making avant garde rock music — in 1993 he released an album of classical music that he composed called Yellow Shark. He was an extremely talented musician, composer and very smart guy. I like to watch his crazy interviews on youtube. He was a militant left winger with a love for conspiracy theories and a hatred for fascism. He died of cancer in 1993. RIP Frank.
This is a Penguin mascot for Penguin kids books. He is young and lovable and he has a big smile and big blue eyes. He gets hot in the summer so he retires to his igloo to stay frosty.
This is a regal blue dragon. He is above it all. He spends his time eating peasants and breathing fire on the little people. He flies around at night passing gas and breathing blue flames. His name is Balthazar and he hates everybody.
I love Hunter S Thompson. He was a genius and a madman. He lived and commented on a time of great cultural flux — in the 60s and 70s in the USA. He hated authority and convention. He was a poet of comedy and sarcasm. He hated cartoons. In a tirade he had about the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas where the producers tried to talk him into having a wave animation during the High Watermark passage he all but obliterated Ralph Steadman and all cartoons and animation. He was highly offended that anybody would compare his work to cartoons or use a cartoon to portray his work. I think it is fitting that I draw a cartoon of him.
This is a donut mascot. He has a giant smile, a crazy brain and sprinkles. He likes a good joke and and a hearty laugh. He finds himself laughing at all the wrong times. Donuts are so good. I live next to a Krispy Kreme. They make them so fresh, melty and good.
