if i had a nemesis i would like to compose requests for duels w/ absolute brilliance. i would hope to have my own stationary. i mean how else can you request a stand off elegantly and w/ valor? i mean let's get real. oh, and also i'd like one of those doohickey's w/ my initials on it, a stamp to place on the back of the envelope in that weird plastic wax. yes. that's how it's done. artist porous walker knows how it's done.
porous walker aka jimmy dimarcellis is a bay area artist who mainly dabbles in illustrations of complete hilarity. he's into drawing boobs and penises attached to people that look like they are distant cousins (w/ gene disorders) of the peeps in yellow submarine. i recently found out that he had a show at the now defunct gallery low, which is only blocks from my apartment, a few years ago. bummer.
his stuff is often drawings of men and women w/ said boobs and penises w/ rainbow colored bubble letters that spell out cliches like "follow your dreams." or "it's what's on the inside that counts.". each illustration is a wash of rainbow splatters. porous is also a big fan of jesus and dinosaurs which as we all know makes for great drawing fodder.
i'm kind of jel of porous. he seems to lead a pretty charmed life. he works for francis ford coppolla and pals around w/ banksy, although that last bit could be a lie. he's even faked his own death as a way of retiring from the art world. he's pretty genius actually. come to think of it i wish i had quit my last job that way. it could have been so perfect, calling in dead and stickin' it to the man on my very own personal stationary.
