SuperPunch (Are you following that site? If you aren’t you should be) directed me towards an awesome set of Mario Brothers posters created byFro Design Co. The posters are propaganda based, as told from the perspective of a Bowser/bad-guys recruitment center. There are 4 in all, which the studio is selling as a package for $80. Not too shabby considering they are limited (100 of each), handmade, and measure 11 X 17. My favorite is probably this one:
Again, the designer’s link.
ARTIST OF THE DAY has got to be Dave MacDowell. This guy can paint, good God. He specializes in pop cultural blastings on canvas mostly, with an affinity for mashups and portraiture/caricature. A quick Google Image search will get you a fine sampling of his work (the Samuel L. Jackson and Jack Nicholson paintings seem to be the most popular on Google). He’s also got his own wonderful, official site where all his work can be viewed in his very prolific gallery. His Flickr photostream is interesting, considering he throws up paintings which he’s in the middle of doing (I’d assume some of these paintings take a lonnng time) along with his finished paintings and also sketches. It’s impossible for me to pick a favorite. But I’ll post this one because I’m into any artist who portrays Disney Co. this way (how fucking dark is this?? Holy):
