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 am an artist and illustrator who aims to capture the whimsical, mass produced, slightly sinister, gimmicky, derivative, transient and expendable nature of modern life.
