“I’m telling you, we were beaten up by a cartoon band.”

I was watching Gorillaz Charts Of Darkness mockumentary last night and wanted to draw Jamie and Damon in the psych ward scene because a) I love how Phase 1 is just one big hot mess of them figuring out how to promote a cartoon band through the mind of the person who created Tank Girl so it just feels like everyone’s on an acid trip b) I’m easily amused by Jamie Hewlett’s poo poo humor and c) because I just wanted to make this trash drawing of them beat up and looking dejected I’m so sorry, forgive me Internet.

“Art is not made for anybody and is, at the same time, for everybody.”

Piet Mondrian was born on this day in 1872! Although he is best known for his De Stijl work, Mondrian created many Impressionist paintings as a young artist. The vibrant coloring and thickly applied lines of this 1909 work demonstrates the transitional moment in Mondrian’s career, from earlier naturalism to a period of formal experimentation.
