This guy has got to be my favorite artist of all times. I want to buy all of his prints.

go to www.brandonbird.com to look at all the rest.

I think my favorite bit might be the Letters to Walken (where he got college students to write letters to Christopher Walken for Christmas) http://www.brandonbird.com/walken_letters.html

Whoa, the second one caught my attention for some reason. The first one looks like a caveman painting.

The first one is "Two Warrios Come out of the Sky" and (in case it's not obvious to anyone) iis the Dukes of Hazard in a cave painting. The second one is called "Child of Light and Darkness" and it has Ernest (i.e. Ernest Goes to Jail, Ernest goes to Camp, etc.) jumping out of a giant space egg. I love this stuff.

That egg is just impressive.
'Brave Cone Dog' made me laugh for some reason.

It's strange how in some of them he combined old with modern. In literature I'd say it's postmodernist. I don't know much about art.

I think post-modern applies to art too, but I think it tends to fall under just "modern art" typically. Brave Cone Dog is nice too, but my favorite ones were the ones I put in here I think (that and "King of the Cage" with Abe LIncoln beating the shit out of people in a cage match). The only one I don't really find great is "Killing Machine" because it's supposed to be Bea Arthur, but it doesn't look like her.

I love the letters!

Heh, noticed Lincoln. I like the sketches too. I'm a bit of a pencil fan.
The letters are sweet!
And 'I Like Ewoks' just reminded me of that movie. I used to love it as a kid.

Yeah, the sketches are nice too. Most of them are pretty normal too, which is kind of nice to see.

Well I'm not a big fan of art, but I like the second painting in the first post.

I've checked the site, most of the paintings... I don't like 'em. Some are ok.
Why is B.A. in two paintings?

I like this one though:
