The creative outlet of a "driven advertising and digital marketing pro", Rock Island Studios produces character portraits inspired by TV shows so good, you routinely lie to people about having seen them. The artist behind it lists her influences as ranging from the pop art of Roy Lichtenstein, to the contemporary works of Shepard Fairey, to the "art nouveau" of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, or as you know him "the one I'd never heard of".
To make it easy on you, simply match your traits with the art that best suits them:
You Have: a moral code that you live by and take very, very seriously, sometimes to your own detriment. Also, you shoot and rob drug dealers.
Opt For: the hand-painted black, white, and gray OMAR (from The Wire, in case that's the show you enjoy lying about) print on a 14x11 canvas.
You're Obsessed: with yesterday's weather, and enjoy trips to wine country, but hate when they suggest you spit out the wine as it tastes like fruit, and was invented by the Romans for orgies, which are not very fun if no one wants to do it with you.
Opt For: the Sweet Berry Wine print of Tim & Eric's Dr. Steve Brule in black, white, and red. Sweet berry red.
You Love: lobster.
Opt For: the painting of a lobster.
You Really Don't Like: being on islands, and want to leave them. But then when you leave them, you get depressed and realize you actually like islands because it's your destiny, or something. You enjoy romantic relationships with dark-haired criminals, and blonde medical fertility specialists.
Opt For: the painting of Dr. Jack Shephard, or as you know him, "the oldest kid from Party of Five".
