I love the Rolling Stones. They have been making incredibly good and relevant rock music since the 1960s. They also have one of the best logos ever created. It was made by English graphic designer John Pasche — though many believe that Andy Warhol designed it. This is a digital painting of the logo made to look like a poofy realistic airbrush painting. One of my most sad Christmas memories is of being home from college on a cold overcast Christmas day, riding around my hometown in a new car listening to Sticky Fingers by myself. It is such a textured, dirty, subversive and great record. I spent most of my time in and since college alone making art and listening to music. My art style is passè and heavily influenced by psychedelic 70s illustration with its fanciful airbrushed creatures, Pushpin bent, Terry Gilliam style and happy but slightly sinister tone.
This is a Chicago police officer. If you are friendly and respectful to the police they are the best friends you will ever have. Schools should do a better job of teaching kids how to interact with cops respectfully. The secret is to do what they say and if you have a disagreement do it in court. The adversarial relationship kids are taught by the media to have with cops is inexcusable.
This is an illustration of a dodo bird. His brain is soft like a puppy’s belly. He is so stupid that he doesn’t know his entire species is endangered. He walks around mindlessly passing gas and listening to Spotify. Brap.
A baby is a happy little monster who grunts and drools and makes strange bodily noises. They live to be loved and taken care of. Here is bubbles without the bubbles.
This is a painting of Henry Rollins. I have been a punk music fan for a long time. I learned about bands like black flag, wire, fugazi and the stooges when I first became interested in nirvana in the 90s. Punk is about rebellion and anger. It is cool when it isn’t about hatred. Rollins has been on Rogan’s podcast like two times now and he is a smart and interesting guy. It is cool how the web lets you hear how amazing people think and process the world live.
This is deadpool with snazzy unicorn bedroom slippers. I always found it ironic that the most hated artist in comic book history also created the coolest superhero ever. He is smart and funny and self aware and he makes fun of comics and all of the characters, tropes, ideas and gimmics in them.
This is a chubby Geisha who got fat eating sushi flavored ice-cream and cotton candy ramen noodles. She plays Mario sunshine and drinks screw top wine.
This is a spot illustration of a Koi with lily pads. He is eating algae off the sides of the forcefield that is holding reality up. He sometimes thinks he sees giant two legged monsters on the other side watching him.
This is an illustration of Eustace Tilley for the Newyorker. He is their dandy intellectual mascot with a monocle and a butterfly bro. He is inspecting the butterfly for Corona virus.
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 Ari Shaffir. He is a comedian from LA. He got famous being funny on Rogan’s Podcast with Callen, Duncan and Bert. They don’t get enough credit for being huge forces in making that podcast great. He had his own show on Comedy Central and quit it to get high and travel around Asia – sleeping in hostels like a savage.
Purple monster with a nose ring. He is friendly and happy and he has a big personality.
