Unicyclist in Ire Neck of the Woods

     As you have most likely noted before, I enjoy visual drollness. The worlds of Edward Gorey and Charles Addams makes me glow with a felicitous chagrin! Almost every one of my preposterous preponderances are saturated in satire, sarcasm, or just plain silliness. One of my latest endeavors into this realm is the depiction of a "lusus naturae" casually rolling through a neighborhood on its misaligned/maligned single-wheeled contraption. 

     Monstrosity or not...this is us! 
We are all uninformed, deviated, malformed receptacles of derisory flesh. For certain, each of us has felt self-conscious...socially ill-fitting...bereft of  confidence and still found the will to lumber on. Well, this ain't this guy. He is totally adept in this world; he feels right at home in this vicinaged milieu. He is out for a stroll on his mechanized monstrosity and is feeling great. There is the message...feel good in your own skin...we all need to find a place we can fit in...yeah, even if it's all by ourselves.

  1. Great message! Thanks for explaining this piece. Loving the color choices you have going on here. Reminds me of James Michalopoulos's color choice and caddywompus styling. One of my favorite artists who you should check out. Nice job!
