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 an illustration of Eustace Tilley for the Newyorker. He is their dandy intellectual mascot with a monocle and a butterfly bro.
This is a caticorn being ridden by Takashi Murakami. He is a famous Japanese pop artist who works in New York. This caticorn has a rainbow tail and blue eyes. He bounds through space and over rainbow nebulae — spiriting Takashi away into dreamland every night.
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 Chicago police officer. Schools should do a better job of teaching kids how to interact with cops. If you are friendly and respectful cops are some of the best friends you could ever have. The secret is to do what they say and if you have a disagreement — do it in court. Never challenge a police officer because it will end with you getting cracked over the head.
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.
I love when fat people ride scooters. The contrast in size is shocking and funny. This guy’s name is Roscoe. His street name is Big Love. He is a dedicated Broni who rides his vespa scooter to the laundromat to pickup homeless chicks. He gets disability and he woos the ladies with his designer shoes and name brand laundry detergent.
This is the Fighting Irish mascot with a coat of new paint. I made him look three d with the airbrush in Photoshop.
Wolverine is my favorite superhero. He isn’t fast or strong and he doesn’t have magic powers but he is tenacious, mad and tough. I like him because he is always getting his butt kicked by stronger mutants but he never gives up and usually wins.
This is Popeye as a zoomer. He has tattoos and some chuck taylors. I did this art around the time the USS Lassen bravely challenged waterway rights in the south china sea. Popeye reminds me of my grandpa. He loved Popeye and served on a destroyer in the Pacific in WW2. They were sunk by a Kamikaze and he was in the water for two days.
I love Buddha. He was like the original self help guru. He didn’t call on magical deities for happiness — or preach that you had to torture yourself to attain enlightenment — he understood that life is suffering and the key to happiness is to let go of the material things that lead to suffering. This is a statue of fat happy laughing Buddha with birds pooping on him.
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.
