I designed and painted this happy friendly monster for a cool Ad Agency in Minnesota. Garrison Keillor told me to insert a Lutheran joke here. Happy purple monster standing.
Yellow monster cartoon. Chuck the happy monster is a cyclops. He has one blue eye. He has no depth perception so he runs into things and can never make those magic eye posters at Spencer Gifts work. He is also a bacteria monster than can make you sick if you don’t wash your hands.
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 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.
In December, 2014 Mike Olsen was diagnosed with a little known chronic lung disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. It causes progressive scarring of the lungs and it is fatal. It is the result of a faulty immune response by the body. Mike is working to raise awareness about this disease. Check out the Mike Olsen Project on Vimeo. It is a beautifully produced video about his plight.
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.
Purple cartoon monster seated with a nose ring. I painted this happy and cute little monster with a nose ring for an ad agency in California. He represents the microscopic critters that cover everything and can give you an infection and make you sick. Be careful to wash your hands and keep your hands out of your mouth and nose to keep from getting a cold. And if you get your nose pierced make sure the person who does it works in a sterile environment. If he isn’t clean — your piercing can get infected and in severe cases it can kill you. Be sure to have your piercings done by a professional.
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 an illustration of a nuclear bomb with with a radiation symbol on the side. It is painted to look metal and it has a transparent background to make it work as clipart.
