I love Hunter S Thompson. He was a genius and a madman. He lived and commented on a time of great cultural flux – in the 60s and 70s in the USA. He hated authority and convention. He was a poet of comedy and sarcasm. He hated cartoons. In a tirade he had about the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas where the producers tried to talk him into having a wave animation during the High Watermark passage he all but obliterated Ralph Steadman and all cartoons and animation. He was highly offended that anybody would compare his work to cartoons or use a cartoon to portray his work. I think it is fitting that I draw a cartoon of him.
Are bad things happening to you or your family? Call the evil spirit extractor and DMT shaman and he will fix your life by taking you on a psychedelic journey through the underworld of evil spirits and malevolent forces. It is a trek not unlike Dante’s Inferno with this guy playing the role of Virgil. It is pretty amazing to think that the modern human brain is exactly the same organ that guided people through the dangerous jungles and savannas of primitive cultures. I love witch doctors. They represent the way a creative mind deals with forces of nature that it doesn’t understand by using the magic of art and symbols.
I have been sleeping in my car for quite a while. It has given me the chance to think about myself and try to figure out my anxieties, how ssris are affecting me and what is going on in my head. It is like someone walking barefoot on a floor full of snap-n-pops in there sometimes. I have met quite a few homeless people who get by panhandling. They are good people who have fallen on hard times. Walmart is very lenient with lot sleepers and beggars. Seems like a country and government as rich and powerful as the USA would do more to help.
This is a silly guy with a black spandex shirt, long hair, an English driving hat, piercings, a giant grin and grillz with the word LOVE spelled out on his teeth. This is how I feel when I get turned down for 20 jobs a week. Thats right I have a degree from UGa and they wont hire me for minimum wage work. This piece channels the hidden existential angst in your happy confident bullshit laden cover letter that you write to people who you know aren’t going to hire you in 1000 years because of the decisions you have made in your life and in your work. If they knew that I live in my car they would probably not even reply.
The b612 foundation is a privately funded organization designed to help protect us from potentially dangerous asteroids and comets. This is an illustration of The Little Prince. His tiny home world is the asteroid b612.
I love Rick and Morty. This is an illustration of Rick puking a rainbow. He ate too much Szechuan Sauce and being that it is alien in origin it caused him to hurl the fabric of the cosmos. The rainbow vomit meme comes from 2006 iMockery – where on visiting a Japanese grocery store in Little Tokyo, LA he said – it looks like a rainbow threw-up all over their snack section and forever stained the packages with a million bright colors. And a meme was born.
