Alex Pardee at eyesuckink.com
Hailing from California, Alex Pardee is today's artist pick. He is a freelance illustrator and an apparel designer.
His bio, posted on his MySpace Page (and no, I don't link to MySpace Pages because they are just so wrong, but you can access it through his nicely designed, non-abomination-of-code website http://www.eyesuckink.com/), states:
"Final pieces are often brought to life by translating random shapes and colors into signs of torment and absurdity. By juxtaposing these two conflicting moods, Alex makes his works more personal to his viewers, forcing them to project their own feelings and emotions onto each character in his twisted universe. After months of hospitalization and many futile attempts at seeking out professional help, Alex finally overcame his battle with severe depression and anxiety through his own form of therapy: art.
You can find his clothing and more for sale on zerofriends.com, a "creative collective" of works by a group of artists. Although the calendars for sale are a few years old, the covers are enticing.
Alternatively, his eyesuckink.com website takes you out of the shopping cart and through galleries of personal art, commercial art and toys (including his Bunnywith characters).
