This is Mac Miller. He is a great rapper with a great flow. He is giving his patented thumbs up. This illustration is based on his most dope logo and mascot. I took his simplified character and fleshed him out with cool hip-hop clothes and a Nike hat. Donald Trump is probably the coolest unintentional campaign song ever. RIP Mac Miller.
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.
Mario is the coolest and most psychedelic Nintendo mascot ever. If you haven’t played Mario 3 — you are missing out on one of the best 2-D platform games ever made.
This is a more realistic treatment of a figure playing football. I don’t try and give people realistic proportions much so I am not very good at it. This is UGA QB Jake Fromm. He beat out 5-star recruit Jacob Eason to be the starting QB at Georgia. He is not rattled by pressure, a great thrower and great at reading defenses.
This is a nondescript man with an exploding head. It represents the manic phase in bipolar disorder.
I loved ninjas as a kid. I convinced all of my friends that the woods behind our house was full of ninjas. I saw the movie “Revenge of the Ninja ” when I was like 6 and it warped my brain. I was convinced I was a ninja and that I had magic ninja powers. Best video ever.
This is aquaman looking confident and schmarmy. “Everybody’s like, ”Hillary’s a hero.”No, she ain’t. Aquaman’s a hero. He can talk to the fishes. What can Hillary do?”
I like David Icke. I don’t believe in any of the nonsense he preaches. I don’t think reptoids rule the earth – but I love the fact that this guy has built an empire based on an alternative reality of conspiracies and nonsense that he invented with his imagination. And it is compelling enough to get millions to follow and believe him. It is amazing how reality can be warped by personalities who are entertaining and good at talking in front of a crowd. He is a reality sculptor and the medium he has mastered is the mind of normal people.
I used to watch Bob Ross as a kid. I had a crappy tv in my room with no cable so all I had was GPTV and The Joy of Painting was my favorite show. I loved how soothing and friendly his persona was as he flew through a single painting in 30 minutes. He was like a friend and a teacher on TV before twitch was ever a thing. Bob died of Lymphoma in the 90s. RIP Bob.
The ice cream truck was a big deal when I was a kid. I remember hearing it around dusk during summer vacation with its creepy happy classical music box tunes. I have euphoric memories of superstars and bomb pops with fireflies floating on warm summer breezes and frozen happy sun burnt faces as night approached in slow motion.
