I love Andy Warhol. This is Andy with a rainbow nosebleed. He ranks with Picasso and Duchamp as one of the three most influential artists of the 20th century. He destroyed painting, fine art and the concept of the artist as a singular original creative force. He also glorified the art of the mind. Fine art stands as the highest expression of western culture. And by destroying it he shows his disgust with western military, cultural and economic imperialism. This is a caricature of him with a giant scarred mechanical nose. He was extremely self conscious of his looks and it controlled his life. He wore an ill-fitting white wig and spoke in interviews with a mechanical manner. All of his artistic power came from his his nosebleeds and giant scarred red nose.
This is an illustration of nerd picking his nose with his thumb. He has taped glasses, braces and high waisted pants. His name is Bill. Nerds are among the internet’s best people. They may be goofy irl but they are smart and friendly and well spoken online.
This is Snoo – Reddit’s lovable white alien mascot. I painted him in photoshop with a yoga 2 in 1. I am the digital art equivalent of the guy at the fair who paints t-shirts with an airbrush. I love Reddit – it has all of the beauty and horror of the internet with a semblance of safety. I also love Snoo so I gave him some feet.
Funny blue monster wearing a Santa hat. This is a festive chubby monster named Chet with yellow eyes standing around waiting for Christmas to come and for Santa to show up and bring him some Xbox games.
Jacques Derrida is one of the most well known twentieth century philosophers. He invented a form of analysis called Deconstruction. Although not purely negative, deconstruction is primarily concerned with something like a critique of – aka a caustic assault on – the Western philosophical tradition and the torching of Western culture as a whole. Deconstruction is the empirical verisimilitude of elongated memes that have bent under the weight of world culture. Finding meaning in the wage slavery of profundity is synonymous with yellow cat of happiness and scared purple dog of anxiety. His assaults on Western culture were driven and informed by his experience of anti semitism in French Algeria as a boy.
Funny banana is such a great meme. I found him on 4chan a few years ago – originally I think he was a rendering of a 3-d model. He is a silly banana with a great trolly facial expression. He is embarrassed about removing his peel and feels naked as he holds it out in front of him. He takes anthropomorphism to the next level. This is funny banana as a bananalet and I made him shorter so that he reduces better. I also gave him blue eyes, some jelly bracelets, a few gold teeth and a Chiquita sticker. On a side note – I painted this with my new Bamboo Ink. It is an amazingly good stylus for windows tablets. The stylus that came with my Yoga is too small and it doesn’t feel as though it has as much resolution for fine movement and clicks. See my review here.
I love Bjork’s music. I listened to Homogenic for the first time two nights ago. As part of a science experiment I have been off of lexapro for about 2 weeks so I have feelings again. I like to listen to spotify curled up in a sleeping bag in my car in the dark. It is like a Polyester and metal shell that isolates me from the world and keeps my body heat and emotions next to me as I slide off to sleep. Homogenic is so beautiful and emotionally charged in the dark with canalphones. It is steamy, spirally and love drenched. It is hard to pretend that pop music isn’t as meritorious as any art ever created. It fuses poop culture with high art in a way that is moving and compelling and it isn’t reserved for egg heads living in ivory towers.
I see this lady panhandling at Walmart everyday. I like homeless people. I am pretty sure they are time travelers from the future who have decided to stay in this time to escape the squalor of the post apocalyptic future. They are all being tracked by evil scientists using radio devices in their teeth. If you look closely you will see they are all missing their teeth. They pull them out to escape the prying gaze of science. You should give them money so they can stay here.
This is a cartoon pizza slice with a single illuminati eye. It is a play on the all seeing eye pyramid that people on youtube make so much about. I wish reality was as mysterious and dangerous as conspiracy addicts think it is. I would like to believe that reptoids were secretly in control of human civilization and behind the scenes pulling strings on everything important.
This is Future – AKA Meathead. He is a rapper from Atlanta. He is responsible for many of the stylistic auotune’d flourishes you hear in modern hiphop. Acts like Feddy Wap shamelessly rip him off. This is a caricature of him wearing some pink wayfarers, pink dreads and a purple unicorn beanie.
