I’m going to keep this one short, but I thought I would pass along another artist doing some cool things. Joe Ledbetter has a great flair for doing characters. His paintings are about poster size and, in a lot of ways, they don’t make any sense. The characters seem to fuzzy and furry cartoon characters doing a number of strange things. For example, there is a monkey who has cut off the top of head and is eating his brains. It is aptly titled Monkey Brains. These really have to be seen to be appreciated. The great thing about them is not necessarily the subject matter, but the strong, bold lines and bright, dynamic colors. Everything just pops off the canvas. Many artists lately seem to have this focus on creating characters, and Joe Ledbetter has one of the best eyes for this.
