Some would argue that nature's best appreciated from afar, but that really only works if your TV's big enough to see those meerkats' expressions from across the room. They're so animated! For an artist appreciating nature from behind his window pane, check out theBungaloo
The studio of a former ad world creative who just recently moved to Denver to work on his own stuff full time, theBungaloo! churns out
unnecessary exclamation points highly detailed, somewhat comic, oft nature-based pen 'n ink screenprints from a South Broadway space where he takes in his earthly muse "mostly by staring out the window", making you wonder what your cockapoo could produce if only he had the thumbs to hold a brush. Anthropomorphic animal designs include the the 18''x24'' "That Damn Dog" with the smug, NES Duck Hunt retriever's belly filled with mallards, another with an apron'd "Yeti barista" looking glum in front of an espresso machine, and an 11''x11'' print of a hairy, glasses-wearing bear asking "Yes, But Will Girls Be There?" which is silly for him to care about -- he wears glasses! Because who wants to look at nature all day (ugh!), he's got outliers like a Rushmore portrait of a mustache'd Bill Murray as Herman Blume, a spandex'd luchador holding a smaller opponent in his palm in "Big Wrestler, Little Wrestler", and the retro "Queen of Outer Space" with creepy aliens and hot astronaut chicks, which is silly, as Sally Ride looks like a dude
He's also got a rad collection of purchasable band posters drawn up for shows around the country, like a train chugging for The Black Keys at New Orleans House of Blues, and a '70s-style boom box done for Lupe Fiasco, which's also an appropriate way to describe that episode where Flower allows Daisy to stay in the pack despite being impregnated by that roving male. Drama!
