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 Lien Chan a Taiwanese politician who is famous as a dissident and for pushing for democracy within the government of Taiwan. I drew him with a red tie and suspenders. He also has extra thick glasses and a goofy smile.
This is the lead singer of REM with a giant beard. When I was growing up they were the biggest band in the world. By far my favorite REM album is Automatic For The People. It is an all time classic that has aged really well.
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.
This is a t-shirt design for the allman brothers band. I grew up in Georgia and lived in the Macon area for about a decade. It is amazing how much great music came out of Georgia. These guys were extremely talented. It is fun to watch them play live at their peak on youtube.
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.
This is a giant 80s Easter Island Head with a high top fade haircut. I remember seeing images like this in illustration annuals from the 80s.
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.
I like Buddhism. It is religion without superpowers. It is more like self help than religion really. Buddhas life was all about learning to get pooped on.
