American Coup by MicahJGunnell American Coup by MicahJGunnell
Day 38 for my Daily Sketch Blog. Just so everyone knows, this is not meant to be disrespectful to JFK in any way whatsoever, its more in DISRESPECT of those responsible.

"Who did the president? Who killed Kennedy? It's a mystery! It's a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma! The fuckin' shooters don't even know, don't you get it?! I can't keep talking like this, they're gonna kill me! I'm gonna fuckin' die!"

-Joe Pesci

I know this is from a while ago Keron, but I just saw the comment...Honestly, comments like this mean a lot, and you know I respect your opinion. You're one of the few artists that I like as much or more than I did when I first discovered your work. That's probably because YOU have grown so much artistically as well since I saw your work for Extreme or Maximum or whatever it was :) Instead of just refining what you already were doing, you've really experimented and tried new things, which is something I hope to do as well. I'm becoming a bit bored doing comic stuff to be honest...

Thanks man. the need to change and grow was out of necessity... still trying to punch my weight.

I think you would love some art documentaries. Lots on Youtube. They will scratch that which itches. Some of your favorites like Warhol Basquiat, Picasso, Rothko etc and many on art concepts I think you'd find interesting.

Haha...Yeah, I love me some Warhol! :puke: I actually watch one somewhat recently on Alphonse Mucha that I thought was pretty good. It talks a lot about his Slav Epic paintings, which are some of my favorites. If you have some specific ones you could recommend I'll check em out...Maybe even if they involve Warhol :poo:

Yeah Mucha is cool. You can't call yourself and illustrator if you haven't studied Mucha. But he's merely that. After studying him for a good while I'm trying to unlearn all that I gathered from his work. It's easy formula for pretty tho.

Basquiat the radiant child is a good one
Ther are several Warhol ones. I Highly recommend you watch them. Can't recommend it enough.
Picasso: Several as well. There's one in particular that spans his entire career and interview his kids and ex wives.
Van Gogh: Several good ones.
Mark Rothko: There's a recent one about him
Jeff Koons. Just saw one with him.

It's important to watch these as they give a unique insight as to how the outside world views art. Not just illustrators that we are surrounded by but art that challenges and push barriers.

Thanks dude, I know exactly how you feel...It didn't start with JFK, but he was definitely an example of what happens when a president doesn't follow the script he's given...I don't know how dialed in to the whole conspiracy world you are, but I was obsessed with the stuff for a while...It was all pretty depressing until I realized that all this stuff ties into scripture...Anyway, I'm rambling, glad you like!
