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 a digital painting of Canadian folk singer Neil Young – he is one of my favorite musicians. I got the double album Decade when I was a kid when grunge was big. It is full of classic songs that made him famous. But my favorite album of his is rust never sleeps. It was released at a weird time at the very end of the 70s and it neatly sits outside of pop culture and yet is one of the best albums in rock history. It is also the blueprint for many of his later records.
This is an illustration I did of Uncle Sam as a hipster flying an F-86 over South Korea. Dogfights were awesome in the 50s. Pilots flew by the seat of their paints and had only machine-guns and crazy flying skills in battle. Its cool how 86 means to trash something and is also the phone code for dialing China.
This is a cartoon illustration of Wolverine. I made him super-deformed and gave him a cigar. I always liked him because he isn’t overpowered. He is an anti-hero with flaws and he wins but it is never easy so his stories are always interesting. He also has a cool backstory and a nice design. I put him in his 70s brown and gold costume. It is the one he was wearing when I first started reading his comic when I was a kid in the 90s.
This is a fat 80s rapper with a ghetto blaster. He is wearing an Adidas track suit like RunDMC. His name is MC Burger and he has a golden burger around his neck.
This is a digital painting of the hulk. I have always liked him. He is a modern version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. I also gave him an apple watch so he can monitor his heart rate and put some tattoos on him to make him fit in with zoomers.
This is a digital painting of David Lynch smoking a cigarette. His movies are obsessed with the surrealistic seedy underbelly of small town america. He makes wonderful spiraling dark movies with nonlinear stories and dreamlike imagery.
Gaga’s eyelashes have become a nest for some bright green glow bugs. They doot lights out of their butt to communicate with the benevolent aliens observing humanity from parallel dimensions.
This is a caricature of the world’s number one chess player Magnus Carlsen. Great chess players have incredibly high IQs and mutant like spatial awareness. I saw where top players burn up to 6000 calories in tournaments – just from using their brain to crunch potential moves. It is hard to believe that a kid from Norway – a country with only 5 million people crushes the best players from countries like China with 1.3 billion.
This is a digital illustration of Kanye with blue eyes. The blue represents the album art of his last two records. Kanye took a strange Christian turn in his music. It is pretty brave when you consider it will alienate most of his hyper liberal audience. When you look at the long rich history of black music it doesn’t take long to realize that it all stems from the church.
I am no expert at human anatomy – bodies are so complicated. This is an attempt at a retro pinup digital painting. I was introduced to the work of George Petty when I was a kid – that guy was a master of drawing women. I love how he simplified bodies and exaggerated features and left parts of their clothing flat and un-painted to emphasize their skin. He worked with an airbrush and painted from multiple reference photos – picking the best features. His work really represents the 40s and he is responsible for a lot of the pinups that showed up on the front of bombers in WW2
This is the hero from the cheesy 80s movie Revenge of the Ninja. It inspired me to convince the kids in my neighborhood that ninjas lived in the woods behind my house. Cutest Ninja vid ever.
