IDEA!
batman's origins

Everyone should know this.

Ah, refreshing summer treats.

I love this painting. Such a sense of longing.

I left the trademark that says “for personal purposes only,” because I imagine all of us have ultra-cute kitten purposes.

On the other hand, I see no earthly purpose for this:

So…extra crotch room for Chuck Norris style kicks was a selling point?

Matt Gordon paints adorable little monsters and skeletons…

In his hands, these “scary” creatures become innocent, playful, affectionate, reflective characters with real feelings. Gotta love a skeleton…in a skeleton onesie. Very nice touch.

Brent Estabrook

I recently stumbled upon Brent Estabrook’s vibrant paintings, which range from cohesive, vivid realism, to the abstract and deconstructed.

Estabrook got his Doctorate in Dental Surgery, practiced for one day, and left the field to pursue his need to paint (a gutsy move, but a good one with this kind of talent!). His paintings are able to conjure up the nostalgia of childhood dreams…

…memories of when all was possible and world was magic. We remember the toys, the textures, the stories we crafted around items we held dear.

Let’s take a moment to ogle the beauty of nature…

For some reason, people feel slightly uneasy in this chair.

A tad crass…but definitely my favorite faux Rand McNally cover:

Couldn’t they have thought of more appetizing adjectives than “semi-liquids?” I suppose it beats “lumpy, congealed and vomitous.”

Did anyone have this as a kid? It looks awesome.

The old one was no fun at all…

A children’s book illustration. I’m sure no one had nightmares or anything.
