I have been living in and around Macon Georgia for a few years. This is fan art for a great Southern Rock band from Macon. I remember hearing songs like Melissa and Statesboro Blues as a kid and I never knew that they were considered some of the best songs in rock history or that I lived 20 miles from the Statesboro they were singing about. Southern rock permeates the radio in the South and it is background noise for much of what I do. Eat a Peach is one of the all time great rock albums. It took jamming to astronomic heights. I am proud that these guys came from Georgia. I added a moon man to their patented psychedelic motifs. He represents a psychedelic explorer in a Technicolor Psilocybin dream world. The shrooms are sentient creatures that giggle and make fart noises with their mouths and the trees dance back and forth to the electric guitars. And the sun is a giant fuzzy glowy peach that burns your retinas if you look at it for too long.
I love kitties. Part of their charm is that they love you but they are never all-in. They sit with their back to you. They wont let you pet them unless they are in the mood. If you pet them too much they may bite you. They throw up on your floor from time to time and they poop like there is no tomorrow so you spend a good deal of your time scooping poop. This cat’s name is Sandy. She ate some crayons and now she is vomiting a spectrum of wax.
This is a green fish with teeth being fed kitties instead of fish food. His name is Charles the Green. Green means he isn’t experienced. He isn’t quite sure if kitties are real or part of a simulated reality being pulled over his eyes by a mischievous deity. He is pondering the caloric content of sweet fish food kitties and wondering if he should wait for his lexapro withdrawal to finish up before having dinner.
Adam and Eve, according to the creation myth of the Abrahamic religions, were the first man and woman. They are central to the belief that humanity is in essence a single family, with everyone descended from a single pair of original ancestors. It also provides the basis for the doctrines of the fall of man and original sin that are important beliefs in Christianity, although not held in Judaism or Islam.
I love Biblical imagery. It is so surrealistic and creepy. The bible is beautiful and its stories are like regions in our brain installed by Western culture to guide us through the world. But many parts of it are little more than trolling. It is a collection of memes from the 6th Century BCE used to torment and prod. Teehee girls are responsible for original sin. God made them spontaneously bleed as punishment. Umad? Yeah umad.
Monsters come out of their closet at night. But they only show up when you are scared and your back is turned to them. The tall transparent monster is named Andy. He likes to shine a flashlight through his head at night. It tints the room purple and blue like his soul. When you are in your bed in the dark – sometimes you can catch a glimpse of these guys while your eyes adjust.
This is Wilber the Gimp mascot. He is an imaginary animal called a Gimp. He is a friendly hybrid animal who represents the opensource photo manipulation and painting application called Gimp. It is free and awesome. It is every bit as complexed and cool as Photoshop and is basically a toy for making cool pixely stuff for print and the web. You should download it today and start having fun. This is Wilber as a 90s art student with a Nirvana shirt a pallet and two paint brushes. He listens to grunge on his boombox as he paints pictures of dragons and naked girls for his painting 101 class.
This is one of my favorite memes – it is a clown vomiting a sparkly rainbow into a commode, a porcelain throne even. He is worshiping the god of memes – the totem of kek. He represents creation – he is an artist giving birth to art. This is one of those images created and propagated by my psychotic friends on 4chan. Few people know that clown bile is rainbow colored. Some candy makers use it to flavor their confections. I love clowns. They are so delightfully spooky, corrupt and inebriated.
This is a Dodo. His name is Michael Tennant. He walks around the forest with no fear and no marketable skills. He is unable to function in the world. Nature is harsh and unforgiving and his brain is soft like a puppy’s belly. Michael is the last of his species and he is unable to understand the significance of extinction.
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 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 by myself making art and listening to music. My art style is passè and heavily influenced by psychedelic 70s illustration with its fanciful airbrushed creatures and its Pushpin bent, Terry Gilliam style and happy but slightly sinister tone .
This is a rave monster wearing pajamas. He dances with glowsticks in the dark. When he has had too many Benadryl the walls melt and iridescent spiders crawl around on the dance floor. If they bite you – reality explodes in a massive swirling psychedelic morass of strange alien faces and odd hiccuping electronic sounds.
