Art Comedy

As artists, we often take ourselves too seriously. We forget to improvise and to create something temporary, to play, to make and to simply just get our stuff out there for the world to enjoy.

This morning, Bortusk Leer gave me a good reminder of that with a BONK! on the head. Starting with his about page, where he playfully describes that he's born from, "the forbidden love between a one-legged trapeze artist and a retired communist party official turned dancing-ferret trainer." Mr. Leer draws fantastical childlike characters that typically have more than the average number of appendages. They bleed with color, on newspaper print, and are pasted around town (from Amsterdam to New York). Lucky you if you get to see one in the wild.

Found via Anorak Magazine.

I knew I remembered that name! I took a photo of his work in DUMBO a few years ago. Good stuff.
