CHILDHOOD IMAGINATION.

Modern surrealist artist Sachin Teng is an artist that is very hard to ignore. He creates poignant illustrations that has a bit of social commentary and a bit of whimsy.  He takes us on a journey that can be childlike and innocent to complex and dark.  These images are imaginative and thought provoking for sure.  He has such a unique style that would translate so well as an anime.

PLAY ON WORDS PLAY WITH MY HEART.

Greek artist and t-shirt designer Teo Zirinis is the clever mind behind HandsOffMyDinosaur!
His art has a great blend of puns, pop culture references and whimsy.
Whether its inanimate objects doing something silly, a play on words or your favorite character doing something out of character all of his work is great fun.

Pizzas have scary tales to tell around a campfire too.

I’m not sure if I’ll ever look at gumball machines the same again.

The Iron Fry Throne.  Only the one true cheeseburger may rule the seven kingdoms.

Dhalsim brings the heat to this ‘Street Barbecue’.  We all knew E. Honda would come to the party, being a heavy man that enjoys a steak or two.  I’m happy Zangief could make the party as well.

“To be, or not to be:  that is the question.”  What else can Skeletor do at Castle Grayskull besides read tons of Shakespeare?

What about Ring Kong?  This play on words is so simple and amazing.  I wonder if Peter Jackson would be down to throw a quick film together.  I would so be there!

FAMOUS CHUNKIES.

I can easily say Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one of the greatest movies of all time. I mean whats more amazing than animated characters mingling with real life people?  I went crazy for it when I was a kid.  I still get pretty pumped when I see animation fuse with real life objects.
Artist Alex Solis does amazing illustrations that are unique, fun and playful.
This series is called Stealing My Food

He also is doing a series called Famous Chunkies. He illustrates recognizable pop culture figures as little fatties. I like the consistency of this series but it also has a strong message.
Usually when unhealthy eating is discussed it tends to come off as preachy and a little annoying. I think Alex Solis raises awareness without it being too much to digest….(see what I did there?)
Even though they are simply adorable, it gives you a little food for thought.  Some of these drawings make me think about cheeseburgers a little  more than usual.  Then it immediately makes me rethink eating that cheeseburger.

The cool thing is that he experiments with different art styles and its never the same thing over and over.  He constantly posts super entertaining stuff on Instagram @alexmdc
