MOVE IT FOOTBALL HEAD!!!
“MOVE IT FOOTBALL HEAD” 2021
36’’x24’’ acrylic paint on stretched canvas
The first and original, hand painted masterpiece in a new series of nostalgic DRIP TOONS inspired by Tyler Wallach Studio and my love for NICKELODEON cartoons!!
Every Monday I post a new 90s themed nick-toon in some rainbow slime!!!! The first in my new series is titled “MOVE IT FOOTBALL HEAD!!!” Arnold from HEY ARNOLD!! Stopped by my studio this weekend to pose for me after freshly being slimed. I’ve always been so inspired by nick-toons art and powerful messaging.
I recently watched a documentary on HULU called “THE ORANGE YEARS” about the artistic rise of the TV channel Nickelodeon with stories behind the creation and inspiration of their first 15 years of “golden age” programming.
I’m glad I grew up watching empowering TV for kids where characters weren’t obsessed about love or sex but solving complex problems by overcoming self doubt!
