Tear Poster – Rebel Scum Remover

Tear Posters are part art and part advertisement. At least mine are. They are meant as semi-destructible works of street or public art that offer multiple viewers the chance to take part of the art with them.

I got the idea for this from a comic book cover. (I wish I could remember the title.) The cover integrated the main character and a popular brand of laundry detergent. It was a beautiful mix of storytelling and consumer advertising.

If you ever saw Star Wars, Episode  VI, Return of The Jedi then you know this is inspired by a Quote from an imperial officer after he catches Han Solo.

I tried to add as many little Star Wars references as possible to this poster. The serial number on the front is the date Star Wars was first released 5/25/1977. I even mention those awful Midi-Chlorians

Tear Poster – Green Lantern & Sinestro Corp.

Tear Posters are part art and part advertisement. At least mine are. They are meant as semi-destructible works of street or public art that offer multiple viewers the chance to take part of the art with them.

That said this one is about the Green Lantern Corp. from DC comics. An intergalactic police force that uses magic rings that allow the ring bearer to create any construct of green light that they can will into being.

In the comic books there are several Green Lanterns, several thousand actually. I chose John Stewart of space sector 2814 (The sector Earth is in.) I did this mostly because he’s black. As a white person I tend to draw white characters a lot. Earth has four Green Lanterns and one of them is black, so I drew that one. He’s a great, well written character. He’s also an engineer so his constructs are supposed to be very technical. That makes for fun drawings.

I made his constructs tools and hardware because of the is day job is an engineer. I made the drill look like my #Ridgid 18 volt cordless drill. (@ridgidpowertools) I love my drill plus I’m a very brand loyal person.  Continue reading “Tear Poster – Green Lantern & Sinestro Corp.”

Tommy Toe Hold – With Hands & feet

TTTHS-Tear-Poster-01There is this Youtube cartoon called The Tommy Toe Hold Show (TTTHS). It’s all about mixed martial arts (MMA), but mostly it focuses on the
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). (A lot of initials.) It also has the worst animation ever devised by man. You should check it out after reading this. You’ll get a laugh. →TTTHS

The format is Tommy (The bald bearded guy.) standing to the side as he talks to cut outs of famous MMA guy’s heads about their fights and stuff. All the celebrity voices are impersonated (Poorly), but damn it is funny.  Mostly there is no movement. The only animation is the mouth opening and closing. What makes it funny is the attitude and what they say.

My friend Paul, asked me “why?”

I assume he meant why am I so much more interesting and cool than he is, but he may have meant why did I make this poster.

To answer the assumed question, I am Above Average. So as part of that I’m just naturally awesome and cool. I can’t help it. Paul, be happy because you are my friend and that makes you Above Average by proxy. Even if you were not my good friend you would be mildly interesting on your own.
Be proud of that. Continue reading “Tommy Toe Hold – With Hands & feet”
