About this project

SOCIAL EXPERIMENT/ SPOOKY CARTOON ART ON WHEELS!

Weird NJ artist here with a chance to get you in on my newest project and help make NC look a bit more like a Tim Burton flick!

Hows this for a fun artistic way to bring a little artistic cheer to the south (and mess with people a bit)? The DOOM buggy! I'm taking my surrealist creepy humorous cartoons off the sketchbook page and into real life! Everywhere this car goes, the environment becomes a little less uptight. And believe me, North Carolina could use it!

It started as an idea to get my spooky/funky artwork in front of more eyes, but evolved into a comedic blogging project as well!

I'll be setting up a wordpress blog to document the production of the car, and share all stories (good and bad) about driving it in the south. Yes, that includes video blogs as well! There's already a facebook fanpage: www.facebook.com/thedoombuggy

I've also created this art print specifically to help make the doom buggy a reality. It's a black & white print on earth toned cardstock. I apply the white highlights to each one by hand so it's really half print/half original. Sized at 8x10" so you can get an inexpensive picture frame for it at any target or walmart.

I'm really looking forward to sending you some cool art prizes and dedicating funny videos to you by name from the car!
