I don't think this post needs a ton of description or background. All I did was simply take an iconic poster from one of the world's greatest advertising campaigns, hop in the time machine, and advance each character a good 40 acres, I mean 40 years, forward, complete with metal devices designed to help aid their movement. The 40 acres line is a Spike Lee reference. Sometimes I feel the need to explain. Also, Spike Lee played the role of Mars Blackmon. Mars Blackmon is the guy with the walker whose head is being palmed by the greatest basketball player of all time. The greatest basketball player of all time is Michael Bartholomew Jordan. And as you would guess, even in his old age, it still has got to be the shoes. Yes, I'll end with that cheesy line. I have no shame.

If you were a professional football player, and you saw some dude running toward you full-speed, intent on delivering a ridiculous amount of obliteration, much like a rhinoceros who is foaming at the mouth, but instead of a real uniform he had on a jersey made of sherbert, wouldn't you like your chances way better? I think I would. I'm not making that up either, it really happened. Well not the rabid rhino part...was mainly talking more about the funky unis. Beginning in 1976, there was a team that played in Florida, more specifically Tampa, covered entirely in sherbert. Google it.
The Creamsicle Movement always intrigued me. It's a little crazy that something can be both repulsively hideous, and kind of dope at the exact same time. So naturally I had to make a picture about it. Obviously, made the logo way cooler, although Buccaneer Bruce has got to be wondering why he still is biting down on a knife after all these years. Can't be good for the chompers. Even created a grassroots Twitter campaign that I truly hope never catches on. Don't say I never did anything for you, Tampa.
Kate Upton. Big week for her. First SI Swimsuit cover, and now this.

A little background for you to help your understandment of this pic: There is this dude out there; he draws well. Really well. His name is Sean Galloway. He has a series/franchise/creator-owned project (can only hope one of those is correct) that he developed recently entitled "Gumshoes 4 Hire." Because I thought the characters were swell, and had nothing to do on the evenings of January 22nd and 23rd, I decided to try my hand at them.
Now I know the term "gumshoe" is usually reserved for a person with detective-like qualities who keeps a magnifying glass in the pocket of his or her trenchcoat at all times (at least that's what I gathered from looking at remedial clip art), but what I did with this picture is I actually put gum...wait for it...on their shoes. It's pretty deep, so I'll give you a second to digest. As if you didn't know, it's next-level stuff here on this site, so you best bring your pickaxe, a map, and your favorite thermos. Don't know why I typed any of that.
Check out Sean Galloway's blog. You can do that by google-ing "Sean Galloway". I find obvious directions are funnier than just providing a link.
