Kirby Smart was a defensive back at Georgia when I was there. It was the late 90s and I remember him having a bunch of interceptions on a team with among other players – Champ Bailey. He was a little guy with a big heart and a big brain. He was a 4 year starter and I remember munson calling his name quite a few times. Teams liked to throw on him because they thought they could and he made them pay. He went on to be an assistant coach at UGA and other schools and ultimately found most of his success as an assistant for Nick Saban. He coached defense for Saban in the NFL and during his epic run at Alabama. I think he has 4 of those giant rings. I hope he can find a way to bring a few to Georgia.
This is a cartoon caricature of Bob Ross. He is the grandfather of Twitch. If you ever have anxiety just listen to his voice, it is better than Benzos.
The first monster I remember is Cookie Monster. Every kid has cookie monster in there lurking beneath the surface – waiting to spring forth and gobble your cookies. They live on and for cookies. They eat them until they get a tummy ache.
This is a caricature of UGA head football coach Kirby Smart. He is a Georgia alum who has had a stellar career as a defensive coach and made his name under Nick Saban at Alabama,. He keeps the Dawgs in the hunt for a national title every season.
This is a caricature of Alex Jones. He is an entertaining talker who believes we are being controlled by extra-dimensional beings. I don’t vouch for what he believes but I enjoy listening to him talk.
This is a goofy and cheesy pepperoni covered pizza slice that is affiliated with the illuminati. He sometimes feels the existential angst of modern life peering blankly over his doughy shoulder and he mirrors the look on his face.
This is the final form of Gozer from Ghostbusters. He is a sweet giant puffy guy with a sailor suit and a nice smile. He is Ray’s fault.
This is a caricature of US president Donald Trump from the side. It amuses me how angry he makes the press with his trolling. They deserve a little trolling sometimes to be honest. Trump has the persona of a disgruntled construction worker. It seems haphazard but it is obviously carefully crafted to appeal to the angry voters he is trying to win over. He is like Adam Carolla with a little more money and way better hair.
This is a collection of illustrations that I did for UGA athletics over about a three year period. I did Uga twice, Hairy Dawg and Kirby Smart. I spent the prime years of my working life trying to become a professional illustrator. It is the platonic perfect form of putting all of your eggs in one basket. It made me ignore graphic design and made me impoverished for a decade. One thing positive it did is teach me to focus like a surgeon and work like an insane person to try and scratch out a living. So over the past two months I have been making a graphic design portfolio to try and get an actual 9 to 5 job. If you are wondering what the gaping hole in the middle of my career is — it is a failed illustration career. See that third dawg? I didn’t create him — I made him less shitty. There IS a difference.
I love the hulk. If he gets mad enough he can actually jump into space. I can’t imagine getting so pissed that you end up floating through an empty vacuum for eternity. That would give you a bunch of time to cool off and think about how you ended up there. You would live out eternity with nothing but your thoughts and memories.
