Abe-Kido and Other Games

Brandon Bird's illustrations are farcical interpretations of cultural mainstays. His sense of humor is unique with a fair measure of cultural criticism; I think his work characterizes April 1st (except without the fooling part). I think I would compare the overall effect of his humor with that of Heath Robinson or David Shrigley. The imagery of his work resembles any of the advertisements done by one of my heroes, Norman Rockwell.

I think his illustrations would translate nicely into street art, and especially t-shirts.

I am planning a trip to London. So far I have the airfare to $401. More on that later.
