Some people are lucky enough to find their true calling young and start doing something profound and amazing at an early age, while others have to toil for years before writing pithy e-newsletters. For sweet prints from a dude who knew since elementary school: Christian Noise Art.
The Hub's own Noise etched his first strip in the third grade, and has now digitally penned a varied portfolio of full-paletted comic art whose subjects run the gamut from iconic comic-book heroes, to muscular bears, to things that don't wear skin-tight pants. The work breaks down thusly:
Superheroes & Villians: Crisply drawn & vividly inked comic-book characters include a swinging Batman desperately in need of an upper-body workout; an umbrella-tapping Penguin (who weirdly resembles Sesame Street's Count); and a shot of Flash Gordon with splattered legs called Flash Me, aka the prequel to Despicable Me.
Bear & Circus: Enjoy/be creeped out by a limbless ballon-shaped clown named Stubbs; the buxom & bearded Bianca with a hook hand; and a cuddly Care Bear adorned with a halo'd pile of crap punnily titled Holy Sh*t Bear.
Killer Ketchup: For Sunday comic enthusiasts, CNA chronicles the daily trials & tribulations of fancy ketchup packets (natch) in his action-packed mixed-media strip with the tagline, "Murder. Mayhem. Ketchup.", also an accurate way to describe the aftermath of someone cutting in front of a hungry Khloe Kardashian at Burger King.
Noise also hawks a simply stated truth-telling tee that depicts a Green Line train below the phrase, "I'm FucT", presumably a reference to a train line so congested that you basically have to leave at an early age.
